I have been working for University Chiropractic and Wellness since Spring 2019 as a Rehab Specialist. I am currently finishing my degree at Kent State Univesity in Chemistry and minors in Biology and Psychology. I have been accepted into Physician’s Assistant School and will be attending Mary Baldwin University in Virginia this winter.

I enjoy getting to know patients and making them comfortable with rehab and stretching. In my free time, I work at the Kent Free Library and also enjoy spending time with family and friends.

LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST

I became a Licensed Massage Therapist 9 years ago in Ocala, Florida. I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in Chiropractic care with medical massage. I find my career to be very rewarding and gratifying when I see the progress with each patient. It warms my heart knowing I had a hand in their healing process and that means so much to me. I feel that each person who walks in our office as a new patient walks out apart of our University Chiropractic & Wellness family.

In my free time, I adore spending time with my wonderful husband Cory and our fur babies Logan, Allena, and Ashlyn. My husband and I are always building new things or tearing something down, and if not doing that, we are out on our motorcycles with our friends enjoying the open road!

So together we are definitely building a life we love!

LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST

I got my degree to be a Licensed Massage Therapist at Northcoast Medical Training Academy and have been practicing massage since ___.

In my free time I enjoy reading and a special hidden talent of mine is making balloon animals. A lot of people know me for my wicked sense of humor and my contagious smile.

I am a very hard worker and eager to learn new things. I would like to further my education and advance in my line of work to potentially become a teacher and to teach acupressure and reflexology.

Jessica

PRACTICE MANAGER

I attended Cincinnati School of Medical Massage and have had my massage license since 2015. After studying massage I went back to school for my Associate’s degree in Applied Science at Beckfield College. I am currently enrolled at Kent for Medical Billing and Coding.

In my free time, I love hanging out with my husband, daughter, and my pets. We spend our time travelling. I really enjoy being in nature. Hiking, camping, and finding new parks to visit is one of the many things I look forward to in my free time.

I have worked for University Chiropractic and Wellness for two years and recently became our Practice Manager.

Rehab Specialist

I recently joined University Chiropractic & Wellness. I am very excited to be apart of this team and look forward to growing with the amazing staff that is already here.

Before coming to University Chiropractic and Wellness I worked as a software engineer but I decided I wanted to have a more human-centered job, and University Chiropractic and Wellness definitely provides me with that opportunity!

When patients work with me in rehab they will receive a unique experience. I am a 200 hr level yoga teacher and I studied in India. I incorporate yoga stretches and breathwork into my work with patients. I can teach you stretches for any part of your body that you can do here or at home.

Rehab Specialist

I have been working for University Chiropractic and Wellness for a year. I’ve always had a very big passion for the health and fitness field, so being here is a very enjoyable time for me! Patients can ask me questions related to exercise science and I have a lot of knowledge about different types of sport’s stretching.

I recently began my Master’s in Exercise Science at Kent State University . Upon graduating I plan to continue on to get my doctorate in physical therapy. Long term, I aspire to one day open my own outpatient clinic and work side by side with Chiropractors and Massage Therapists to create well rounded rehabilitation plans!
