CHIRO FOR MOMS team

Dr. Jesse Lillejord


Meet Dr. Jesse Lillejord, the founder of CHIRO FOR MOMS. She is the heart of our team, and the glue that keeps us all together.

She is a mother of two girls, and married to the man she's known for over 20 years. 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.

Dr. Kayla Schumacher


Meet Dr. Kayla Schumacher. She’s a corn girl to the core (Iowa) and has lived in as many states as she has kids!

Although specializing in women at work, at home she is surrounded by her amazing boys including her husband and their 3 kiddos.

She's a functional medicine expert - in addition to being a chiropractic specialist. She geeks out on all things health related [she's a sucker for a good float tank + coffee enemas]. She loves raking leaves, all forms of yard work, all things football [hubs is a football coach] + reading!

Dr. Paige Schwieters


Meet Dr. Paige! She is a proud Canadian who moved here to pursue her dream of being a chiropractor.

She’s quirky + smart + lovable + fun!  She snowboards, climbs cliffs with her bare hands [rock climbing], and in true Canadian fashion - plays hockey.

She loves dogs + humans alike - hence the professional path into chiropractic care + nurturing patients.  She’s Italian - so she talks fast - and she’s a bit of an energizer bunny [she keeps the team hopping].

Stefanie Hawkinson


Meet Stefanie, our team manager [or…the boss]! She's been a part of the clinic since the start.

She's a mama of 2 and is married to a physical education teacher - who is always keeping her active!

She loves her time outside with her family. Some of Stef's faves include romantic late night Costco walks, Chai Tea, attending her kids' events, and working out and sunshine - this lady really loves sunshine filled vacations - ehhem - Hilton Head. Everyone needs a Stef.

Meredith Festler


Meet Meredith!  She’s one of our team managers and our PR guru. Mama, wife, but one would argue her favorite label is chicken mama.

She married her college sweetheart and moved out west to the “country.”

Meredith used to be a dancer [at one team meeting, we found out she’s the only one who can do the splits]! She adores the outdoors, a hot cup of coffee, her Peloton, and clean living.

Cassidy Vitzthum


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!

Claire Ficek


Meet Claire! She is the youngest here at the office, but don’t let her age fool you.

Claire is one of our marketing interns, with a bright eye for all things social media. You’ll almost never see this girl outside of work, she’s kind of a work-a-holic.

She is heading off to Mississippi in the fall, while also owning her own social media management business and working for Chiro For Moms!
