Cynthia Moore MA, MS, Lic.Ac. has been the Executive Director of Sojourns since 2004. Cynthia was part of the original small group of practitioners Dr. Haltinner and her staff invited to discuss and dream about creating an integrated clinic in Southern Vermont. These early discussions about what would become Sojourns were part of what lead Cynthia to leave the area for a couple of years with the intent to try to learn the secrets of successful for profit businesses, with the intention of applying that experience to non-profit and socially responsible ventures. She rejoined Sojourns in January of 2003 as the Operations Manager and has been part of the Leadership team ever since.
In addition to working full-time as the clinic's Executive Director, she has continued to spend part of her time working with patients. She works with her patients, seeing each one as an individual, working with the body's own strengths to restore balance in body, mind and spirit. She enjoys being part of the process of healing for her patients, partnering with people to invite them into a place of healing. She is Certified Professional Coach (CPCC & PCC) and an avid student of the Enneagram.
Prior to rejoining Sojourns,Cynthia had an eclectic career including over 25 years of out of the box leadership experience in non-profit and for-profit businesses, healthcare and higher education.Cynthia has an MS in both Internet Engineering and Internet Strategy Management from The Graduate Center of Marlboro College, and a Master's level diploma in Acupuncture from the New England School of Acupuncture. She received her Coaching Training from the Coaches Training Institute and the Deep Coaching Institute
As a senior consultant, Cynthia participated in, and led, organizational change management projects and leadership trainings at the Pentagon, Bank of America, Raytheon as well as other Fortune 2000 companies. She has also consulted for a variety of educational and human service agencies, including Living Beyond Breast Cancer and The National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
While she is grateful that her job is never boring, she is also acutely aware that her current role of running a small non-profit health care facility in rural Vermont in the midst of an on-going nation-wide crisis in our healthcare system, is the most challenging job she's ever taken on.
When not at Sojourns, Cynthia spends her time wood-working, studying the Enneagram, traveling, tending her chickens and cooking interesting ethnic dishes for her loved ones.
