Dr. Stephanie received her Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Doctorate of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University. While at Northwestern Stephanie had the privilege to intern under a chiropractor specializing in care for pediatric patients and women pre and post pregnancy. She has a strong passion for educating families of the importance to start chiropractic care at a young age.
Chiropractic has made a huge impact on her family and the quality of the life they lead. Seeing her son begin to thrive under chiropractic care changed her world. She chose to go to chiropractic school after chiropractic treatments and nutritional interventions eliminated her son's ear infections and significantly reduced his complications to a congenital abnormality. Now that she has finished chiropractic school she is excited to move into her career by repaying her positive experiences and sharing what chiropractic has given to her family.
She has completed additional education and training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, earning her certification in pediatrics and prenatal care. She holds a certification in Webster Technique, a way of relieving intrauterine constraint and balancing the pelvis to allow for the baby to be in the best possible position for birth. To further support her passion for caring for women, she recently became a BIRTHFIT professional. She will begin a series of classes called #MomStrong, supporting Moms in their many phases of motherhood. Another passion of hers is myofascial taping and exploring new methods of taping to reduce inflammation, pain, enhance athletic performance and adjust improper posture utilizing her ROCKTAPE certification of FMT I & II.
Stephanie and her family are originally from Des Moines, IA and she is enjoying what Minnesota has to offer with her husband, Jamie, and their children, Remington, Thane, and Campbell. Everyone has adjusted to their new community through involvement in local Boy and Girl Scouting events and ballet performances along with gymnastic and taekwondo classes. Happiness is being active and healthy together whether volunteering in the community, staying fit through weekly activities and chiropractic adjustments or relaxing on the beach of Lake Harriet!
