CHIRO FOR MOMS team
Dr. Jesse Lillejord
Meet Dr. Jesse Lillejord, the founder of CHIRO FOR MOMS + CHIRO FOR KIDZ + one of our women's specialists. She is the bleeding heart of our team and the sticky glue that keeps us all together.
She is a mother of two girls + married to a man she met in high school [ though they had a ten year hiatus … a story for another day ]. Her last name - Lillejord - means “little farm” - which is fitting because she lives on a farm with four ducks + three cats + potentially a llama in the future.
She + her family spend their time gardening, bon-firing, and prospecting the land. Her life runs on coffee, she loves to dance, she is currently straightening her teeth with Invisalign, and you might catch her painting / renovating / building something [ with her mighty power tools ] on her days off.
Dr. Kayla Schumacher
Meet Dr. Kayla Schumacher. One of our pediatric specialists. She was born + raised in Iowa, but has lived in as many states as she has kids!
Although being surrounded by women at work, at home she is outnumbered by her hubby and their 3 boys! Her boys are obsessed with sports, so she's a referee, teammate, announcer + coach-competitive so don't think the boys always win!
She geeks out on all things health related [would run any lab test for fun] + is a foodie [she's come a long ways since babysitting days of burning easy mac in the microwave]. She loves reading, but stays up way too late to finish a book in 3 days.
Dr. Paige Schwieters
Meet Dr. Paige! She is a women's + pediatric specialist. She is a proud Canadian who moved here to pursue her dream of being a chiropractor then fell in love and decided to make Minnesota her home!
She loves golf with her husband Sam [ who is also a chiropractor ] and spending too much money at Target.
She is fun + quirky + lovable and talks incredibly fast [ she's Italian ]! She has a healthy obsession with dogs and an irrational fear of roller coasters and bears.
Dr. Mariah Bokman
Meet Dr. Mariah Bokman... soon to be Baumgartner [ come early June ]!
She grew up playing soccer year round + played a year of collegiate rugby at Winona State [ even made it all the way to Stanford for Nationals ]! She’s always on her feet - has never had a ‘sit down job’ - which translates perfectly into her love for all things health + wellness.
Mariah pursued chiropractic out of her love for helping + educating others. She is one of our women’s specialists + soon to be Kidz specialist.
When she’s not adjusting - you can find her juicing, cleaning [ so type A ], or at the gym! She is obsessed with the Arizona sun, sushi dates, lululemon, + acupuncture treatments.
Meet Stefanie, our team manager [or…the boss]! She's been a part of the clinic since the start.
She loves all things numbers + spreadsheets + organization! She is our go to gal for anything in the office!
She loves Costco date nights with her hubby - a PE teacher who keeps her very active. She is also a mama of 2 amazing children.
Meet Cassidy! We call this girl our blog expert + local artist.
She is an aspiring chiropractor at Northwestern Health Sciences University. Cassidy is an athlete at heart. Also from the land of corn (Iowa).
Cassidy grew up in northern Iowa and was a student athlete most of her teenage years, which is when she experienced the benefits of chiropractic care first hand. She left the small town life for the University of Iowa, where she completed her four-year degree in Health Sciences.
She has many hidden talents [turns out she can make spines beautiful] - check out the life size floral spine art in our back office! She’s also a hiking queen and loves cooking healthy eats!
Meet Katie! She is our office specialist and works at the front desk.
Katie is the resident conversationalist. She loves a good The Office reference + she is a previous soccer star + loves planning travel for herself and others!
She is the captain of her own girl squad at home. She has been connected to CHIRO FOR MOMS for a few years and when our team grew we couldn't wait to add her!
Inez is a mother of three and grandmother of five adorable grandchildren. She is always willing to point out their photo on the wall by the front door.
Because of her many years of caring for children, she is our self-described "baby wrangler". Whenever she hears a fussy baby, she is more than willing to hold or rock the little one so mama can relax and be treated.
Inez has a love-hate relationship with her Apple Watch and strives to close all three rings each day and get at least 10,000 steps in. She has earned a "Perfect Week" award 34 times since she got her watch as a gift in August (yup, only missed it once during that time!)
Meet Addy - our newest team member you will see at the front desk!
She loves a good book + spending time with her hubby and daughter. Roadtrips are a must for her family and they love hiking + biking + and a good picnic.
She is an early childhood teacher taking a short break to have more time with her family - so when we were looking to add to our team she was thrilled to join us!
