GET TO KNOW
I was first adjusted when I was 45 minutes old. My dad is a chiropractor and I was fortunate enough to grow up in a chiropractic family. While my parents ran his chiropractic office, my four siblings and I homeschooled in the back of his office. We got to see the miracles that occur with the help of chiropractic care.
More About Dr. Jen
Our first son, Noah, was born 2 months before we started chiropractic college and he was much of my inspiration to become a top prenatal/pediatric chiropractor. My husband and I started chiropractic college together in South Carolina at Sherman College of Chiropractic. When we arrived, the school did not have a prenatal/pediatric club, so I quickly started one. My passion the entire time I was in school was pregnancy and children which led me to learn under and meet some of the top pediatric and pregnancy chiropractors in our profession. Being that my husband and I are both from Petaluma, we chose to leave South Carolina and return to the Bay Area. We finished our chiropractic education at Life Chiropractic College West. I graduated with honors (Cum Laude) in 2013 and received the prestigious “Clinical Excellence Award” which is not awarded to a student every graduating class. This was a huge honor. Fast forward to now, I am a full time chiropractor at Acorn Chiropractic Club. This is the brainchild of Dr. Matt and myself. I received my CACCP certification in pediatric, prenatal, and postnatal chiropractic care through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) in 2016.
I taught at Life Chiropractic College, West for 7 years, teaching Obstetrics, Gynecology, Pediatric Pathology, and Prenatal and pediatric adjusting. I fell in love with teaching and have gone on to teach Dynamic Body Balancing which is the brilliant work of Dr. Carol Phillips who has heavily influenced Spinning Babies work. I am also 1 of 19 chiropractors in the country to teach for the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). I also have attended several births as a doula and love all things birth and supporting families!
In 2019 I was awarded "Alumnus of The Year" from Life Chiropractic College, West, and I have been awarded "Petaluma's Best Chiropractor" 4 years in a row (2020, 2021, 2022, 2023). Thank you Petaluma!
In 2023, I completed my Diplomate in the Academy Council of Pediatrics (DACCP). This is advanced training in prenatal and pediatric care. Currently, there are 69 DACCP chiropractors in the world.
When I am not at Acorn or doing house calls for new babies and mamas, I am either teaching or being a mama to my 2 amazing boys!
