    Beverly enjoyed her work as an instructor to third year Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences students. This was in liason with Nelson Mental Health and Addictions Services offering free acupuncture treatments to the public. Beverly also enjoyed her private practice in Nelson, BC, until a suitable successor (Christi Hartman, ND) acquired the practice in 2012, after deciding to make Vancouver Island her home. The Duncan practice has grown and evolved since the fall of 2012 and serves the lovely community of the Cowichan Valley.
