I first became familiar with Chico Spine & Wellness years ago. My husband was an established patient of Dr. Michelle’s and I’d stop into the office to pick up supplements for him. Even from those quick stops, I could feel the healing environment. This place simply exuded positive energy and a caring atmosphere.
I found myself drawn to seek out Dr. Michelle’s professional services. I have long been interested in nutrition and whole-person wellness. At the time, I was struggling with ongoing neck and back issues, as well as some dietary challenges which affected me negatively on many levels. I liked the philosophy of treating the whole person.
Committing to a care plan with Dr. Michelle was a personal investment in myself, my health, and my well-being. Within 7 months, I was definitely feeling and looking much better! I lost over 60 pounds and I was well on my way toward a healthier, productive life. I found myself wanting to stretch the boundaries of my own personal growth.
Chico Spine & Wellness was looking for a new team member, and when the opportunity presented, I couldn’t help but step out of my comfort zone and ask Dr. Michelle if she would consider me for the position.
I am blessed to be a member of the family here at Chico Spine & Wellness. I have stepped into the adventure of all things chiropractic and nutrition, and I am learning all there is to know about running the office. I enjoy opportunities to be of help and service for the many people who walk through our doors.
In my spare time, I enjoy taking walks in the park and cooking for friends and family. I also am mildly obsessed with scrolling through Pinterest to find new recipes to try out on my always-willing family.
Being given the opportunity to be a part of something of value is deeply fulfilling. I look forward to where this new adventure will take me, and I am humbled to be a part of this caring team.
When the opportunity presented itself to become a member of the Chico Spine & Wellness team, it was a no-brainer for me. The wellness centered leadership and community was energizing, engaging, and nurturing. Little did I know, I was being welcomed into a practice that was not only going to teach me how to change people’s lives, but change my own! Making my chiropractic and functional nutrition care a top priority has been paramount to increasing my quality of life. Not to mention that the authentic, loving care that Dr. Michelle pours into her team (and members!) has lead me to some of my all time highs!
Prior to starting at Chico Spine & Wellness I was building my background in Kinesiology. I have my Bachelor’s in Exercise Physiology and I am finishing my Master’s in Kinesiology. Through all my education I have learned that my passion and drive actually lies with functional nutrition, the healing powers of whole foods, and living a well-balanced life. I love interacting with our members throughout their health journeys and celebrating their successes along the way. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this community, to serve our members, and to keep diving deeper into nutrition education.
Here’s to guiding you, your family, and friends to better health and happiness!
