ALE, Clinic Coordinator
Hola soy Ale
Bienvenidos a Smith Chiropractic! I am the clinic coordinator, and will be the first person you meet when you walk into the office. My goal is to greet each patient as soon as they walk in the door, make sure they feel welcomed, at ease, and that they feel right at home. I am also the patient financial advisor so I will be able to assist you with any financial and insurance concerns. I am a firm believer that only a good team provides great healthcare to patients, and this is exactly what you’ll find within Smith Chiropractic, a wonderful team. I have been a part of the Smith Chiropractic family for over 7 years and have utilized my background as a certified medical assistant within a variety of roles here at the office. I also get to assist the doctors on a daily basis to ensure that each patient gets the results that they’re expecting. One of the biggest rewards I get is seeing the positive evolution of a patient. Working here has given me the opportunity to not only meet and help a lot of lovely patients but also implement a healthier lifestyle for my family and me through chiropractic care and nutrition. On my time away from work I enjoy spending quality time with the people who fill my heart. My family, my husband, Carlos, my 5-year-old daughter, Allison, and my closest friends. You can also find me exploring new cafés and perhaps reading a good book, and when summer comes around there’s nothing more I love to do than to go horseback riding!
I look forward to meeting you!
SELENE, New Patient Coordinator
As the New Patient Coordinator, I will walk you through your initial visit, from obtaining histories of your condition to performing chiropractic examinations and x-ray imaging. I have been part of Smith Chiropractic Health Care for 2 years and look forward to coming into the office and interacting with our team to share the benefits of chiropractic to our patients. As someone that has seen the other side of poor health, I am passionate about sharing knowledge related to health, wellness, and fitness, so that others can make informed decisions about their health. Improving my daily habits like nutrition and movement greatly improved the quality of my life and motivated me to seek more health-promoting avenues like chiropractic to optimize my health. I am trained in nutrition and lifestyle interventions and have a graduate degree in applied exercise science. Every month I give a presentation on the impact of nutrition on health here at the office for our patients. Today, I am a whole food, plant-based endurance athlete and participate in variety of races. On my downtime I enjoy trying new plant-based recipes with my husband, Joe and taking our two dogs John Stewart and Shiera on outdoor adventures. I live what I teach.

BRIANDA, Chiropractic Assistant
Hola, soy Bri
Originally a patient, I have now been part of the Smith Chiropractic family for three years as a chiropractic assistant. I perform the muscle and posture screenings during your initial visit and you will often find me helping the rest of the team in the adjusting area or front desk. Creating a family bond with our team and meeting the lovely patients who step into our office has been a delightful experience. I also support our team by participating in our monthly wellness workshops by cooking and baking healthy foods for everyone to enjoy. It is truly rewarding to witness the relief our patients experience with chiropractic care.
