Sydnie is the sweet smiling face at our front desk! Her grandfather was also a chiropractor, because she is Kari's niece and she always enjoyed his care growing up. Sydnie was the 2020 American Honey Princess where she travelled the United States teaching people of all ages about the amazing impact of honey bees. She also attended Chippewa Valley Technical college where she earned multiple certificates in childcare services. Sydnie currently resides right here in Chippewa Falls. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two cats and the rest of her large family, watching scary movies, and going on adventures.
Kari brings a very special experience to the office as her dad, grandpa, and great uncle (grandpa's brother) were all chiropractors. Her dad and grandpa were partners and she has a lot of wonderful memories spending time in her family’s chiropractic office as a child, in Eau Claire where she was born and raised. Kari is married with 3 children, likes old movies, reading, and spending time with her family and friends. Kari is certified as a Chiropractic Technician by the State of Wisconsin and does all of the patient note taking and billing procedures in the office.
When she was growing up in Wisconsin Rapids, Dr. Michelle was treated by a chiropractor beginning at a young age. As a young girl, she thought everyone went to the chiropractor as a way of life and received the same benefits she did. By the time she was in middle school, her mind was made up: she wanted to become a chiropractor as well.
