Our Team

The team that works for you at Burien Wellness is dedicated to your health: physical and emotional.

You are in good hands when you have a team in your corner who prioritizes your health and joy each time you enter the office. It is our goal each and every day to make sure that the time you spend with us is one of the best and most nurturing parts of your day because we know that health comes from more than just the adjustment… it also comes from the way you are treated. Expect that you will always be greeted with a smile and treated as the amazing person you are!

I grew up the son of a chiropractor in Ohio and my dad was my hero. I always knew I wanted to help people in the amazing and natural way he did. After years of reading “Outside” magazine and being drawn in by the pictures and stories of mountains and evergreens, I knew the beautiful Pacific Northwest was where I would make my home and go about changing the world in the best way I knew how…

So after graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic I came to Seattle and studied postural correction through Chiropractic Biophysics. I opened a practice in Burien at the end of my 3-year associateship and married my wife, Erin. We bought a home here and proceeded to fill it with three beautiful children, all very energetic little boys.

This is where my chiropractic perspective started to shift. One of our little boys became ill and suffered some neurological damage. We praise God that it was mild and our sweet, punky little boy is still with us. But we saw firsthand the pain parents suffer when their little one is ill. And we saw the miracle of a tiny, young nervous system rebuilding itself bit by bit. We know that our youngest patients are the quickest healers and have seen chiropractic adjustments “turn on the lights” in our own little guy and we want to bring hope and health to other families. We know that starting children out healthy and keeping nervous system interference to a minimum is easier than fixing illness later in life.

So my why changed. We turned our office into a child-friendly, family-centered environment. My training in Chiropractic Biophysics is why I know that postural correction is the most amazing course of care for impacted adults. But I also know that starting children out on the path to wellness early will keep them strong and negate the need for more complex intervention later. And isn’t that what preventative care is all about? Kids deserve the best, healthiest life we can give them. My own children and the children in my community are my why.

I have loved being a chiropractor since 2004.  The power of chiropractic and the ability of the human body to heal never ceases to amaze me. I am a member of a Chiropractic family and I can’t remember a time when chiropractic wasn’t a part of my life.  I received my first chiropractic adjustment when I was two days old.  I grew up hearing, “its time for your attitude adjustment” and off to the chiropractor (my uncle) I went.  From sports injuries and performance to taking care of my family now chiropractic has always been a part of my life…

I graduated from Wartburg College in Waverly, IA, with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology, where I also played football. Go Knights! I then entered Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the birthplace of Chiropractic, graduating in February of 2004.  While at Palmer I volunteered at the local patient outreach clinic that provides free chiropractic and healthcare services to low-income families; participated in a service abroad program setting up healthcare clinics in Fiji; and completed a one-year internship in the pediatric unit of the university clinic. I moved to Seattle in the spring of 2004 and began my work as a chiropractor. I am passionate about providing care to the entire family and I am a Certified Pediatric Chiropractor. Treating children and families as a whole is paramount, as healthy habits are learned in the home. I believe that we can assist families in developing healthy habits and thus set the groundwork for generations to come.

When I am not adjusting I am found with my children, Hadley and Tatum and wife, Courtney. We are usually riding our bikes, playing tag, shooting archery, drinking kombucha and grilling on our smoker. I love being in nature – skiing, mountain biking, running.

Professionally, I am a member of the Washington State Chiropractic Association (WSCA), the International  Pediatric Association (ICPA), a post graduate of the Slak Institute for Pediatric Development and a certified Concussion Specialist for youth sports.

Chief Operations Officer

My journey with Burien Wellness started in 2018 as a patient. I suffered from weekly, sometimes daily headaches and migraines for years. It wasn’t until I began chiropractic care that I was able to find long-lasting relief and get my life back. After receiving such amazing care, when I was asked to join the team in 2019, I jumped at the opportunity and have loved being in a place that can provide hope to others…

I am a helper by nature and it’s incredible to work alongside a team that wants to pour into the Burien community and help people not only physically but in all aspects of their wellness journey. Ultimately, I want people that I interact with to feel seen, loved and taken care of.

When I’m not in the office you can usually find me hanging out with my husband, Eli and my dog, Sadie or with my church community. In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time outside and  doing puzzles.

I began my personal wellness journey when I was only 11 years old. While I was only a child during my care, I distinctly remember the positive change and energy that Burien Wellness put into my daily life. The warm greetings, genuine attention to my care, and the personal connection I was able to build at such a young age stuck with me. Now, I want to return what I was once given – this time, on the opposite end. I am excited to…

Before I worked at Burien Wellness, I was a patient. When I was pregnant with my second child, my doula told me that chiropractic could help me achieve my goal of having a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). I looked forward to my weekly adjustments at Burien Wellness, especially in my third trimester. Each adjustment helped balance my pelvic bone, created space for my baby to get in the ideal position for birth. The whole team was so encouraging and positive. When she was ready, my daughter came into this world via VBAC. After experiencing that miracle…

I was inspired to be on this team and reached out for a position. I am so grateful to witness the miracles that happen here and to help people reach their goals. When I’m not at Burien Wellness, I love being outdoors with my family. We have a yearly goal to spend 1000 hours outside together. It’s a very fun goal to have as a family – I highly recommend you try it! I also play violin in the Rainier Symphony Orchestra. It is such a joy to perform with a full orchestra. If you ever want to geek out about classical music, I’m your gal.

When I found Burien Wellness, I had essentially no chiropractic experience to clue me in on what to expect. Yet, within my first days I was awe struck. Not only by the supportive community that this place provides a home for, but by the amazing stories of progress that have made it such an important part of peoples’ lives. The opportunity to lend a helping hand to those in search of bettering their own health and mindset has been an…

extremely rewarding experience that I’ll always be grateful for. Just the way chiropractic has worked it’s way into being a vital and necessary part of my well-being, the opportunity to spread the word and to help more folks along the journey toward wellness is what makes me so excited to be a part of this team.

Billing Manager

I strive to be someone who serves others with compassion and joy and I desire to be a part of a community that seeks the flourishing of others. When I came to Burien Wellness as a patient I was struggling with anxiety and depression and found a place full of hope, healing and community. When the opportunity arose for me to join the team I did not hesitate. It is one of my greatest joys to serve…

I believe connection, kindness, grace, and joy are vital pieces of wellness. I am a helper by nature, nourished by opportunities to love people. My passion for wellness began with my own health challenges related to gymnastics injuries, food allergies, and autoimmune disorders that I’d accepted as my “new normal” but wildly bloomed into what is my purpose: to love people, to help them love their wellness, even in the face of challenge because healing is so possible…

I found Burien Wellness as a patient, but am so grateful to have since become a part of the team that gave me so much hope.

My vision for people is to celebrate each other’s humanity, to dive into the incredible spaces of creativity, wellness, and life that we often forget to have gratitude for. I want every human being to experience what is possible for their own wellness and how capable their bodies are of healing.

If you found me outside of Burien Wellness, I’d likely be getting creative in the kitchen, making something with my hands or enjoying nature with my family.

Community Outreach

I was born and raised in Burien, and I love this community through and through. I grew up with chronic pain and eventually discovered that I had scoliosis. After being told that my only option would be to “stick some rods in there and learn to live with it,” I decided that that was unacceptable. My body deserves better than this, and there had to be a better way. When I found Burien Wellness, I was a patient and had no idea what to expect, and after going to the New Patient Workshop, I learned about how my spinal

misalignments may be contributing to my other symptoms I’ve had since I was a kid! My mind was blown and the rest is history.

I’m a people person, and I love that I get to serve my community from the belief your body is smart and deserves health. You don’t have to settle for feeling “just okay,” and I’m lucky enough to get to be a part of the journey to optimal health for our patients.

When I’m not at work, you can find me chasing my kids around a park, tending to my garden at home or singing karaoke with my siblings. My hope is that I leave people feeling seen, understood and loved.
