CHIRO FOR MOMS team

Dr. Jesse Lillejord


Meet Dr. Jesse Lillejord, the founder of CHIRO FOR MOMS. She's a mama who has been treating women for over 10 years.  She set out to design a clinic experience that addresses women's unique physical needs and their busy schedules. CHIRO FOR MOMS is the result of that vision.  

She is a mother of two girls ( ages 7 + 9 ), married to the man she's known for over 20 years - her best friend - Erik. They bought a farm last year + spend most of their time gardening, bon-firing, and prospecting the land. 

Her life runs on coffee, she loves to dance + you might catch her painting or renovating the barn [ with her mighty power tools ] on her days off.  She lives life by this quote : "don't apologize - normalize!"

Dr. Kayla Schumacher


Meet Dr. Kayla. From a young age, she knew that she wanted to be in the healthcare field, as she has been seeing a chiropractor since she was 4 years old! Her passion is helping women and children reach their highest health potential through chiropractic care. 

She has been treating for 7 years and is Webster Certified. She is so excited to join the CHIRO FOR MOMS team, and to be able to specialize her care for women and children.

Meredith Festler


Meredith is a mom of three (7, 5 and 3!). They are all very active in sports and activities which certainly keeps me busy.

She is married to her college sweetheart and moved out west to the “country.” They are embracing the country life with three chickens!

She is very passionate about clean living and helping people create healthy lifestyle choices one baby step at a time.

Chiropractic has always been a priority in her life and CHIRO FOR MOMS has always held a special place in her heart.

Some of her favorite things in life are being outside, a hot cup of coffee, her Peloton bike and seeing her babies grow up (and obviously having her husband by her side!)

Meredith brings a wealth of knowledge to our team and will be working behind the scenes in the office.  

Claire Ficek


Claire is going to be a senior at Mound Westonka High School next year. She recently started interning at CHIRO FOR MOMS and has had a BLAST getting to know all of you and the wonderful ladies who run this business!

She hopes to go into business-marketing in college, so this marketing internship has been the perfect experience for her to learn the ins and outs of marketing. She is looking forward to meeting everyone soon! 

Paige Ferrazzo


Meet Paige our newest intern!

She is in her final semester of chiropractic school and has completed all her licensing board exams as well as Webster certification. She is our first Canadian (eh) and she is so excited to join the CHIRO FOR MOMS team.

She loves being active and spending time outdoors either snowboarding, rock climbing, playing hockey or just enjoying a nice walk with a hot cup of coffee.

In addition to loving dogs, her passion is to help and educate others to heal and live their best, healthy vibrant lives through chiropractic and wellness care. She has a personal mission to make women and children more aware about chiropractic and the benefits throughout pregnancy and their entire lives.

Paige cannot wait to learn and grow with CHIRO FOR MOMS and CHIRO FOR KIDZ and start making a difference! 

Cassidy Vitzthum


Meet Cassidy our Marketing Intern here at Chiro for Moms!

She is also an aspiring chiropractor, in her second year of school at Northwestern Health Science University. 

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.

After graduation, she quickly started her doctorate program in Bloomington, and has been loving it ever since! She found Chiro for Moms like most people do: she was looking for a clinic that catered to women.

When she isn’t studying or dreaming of her future career, Cassidy can be found hiking or cooking healthy eats!
