The Team

  • Dr.
    The Chiropractor

    I have been a Chiropractor for over 10 years and received my Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern University in the Twin Cities. I was born and raised in Bismarck and am the oldest of 2 younger sisters who also reside in Bismarck. In my free time I like to spend time with my wife and children, play baseball or softball, hunt deer, hike and watch sports. I can't remember a day that I haven't had coffee!

    Fun Fact: I played baseball throughout high school and was recognized for breaking several records. I then went to play for University of Mary for 4 years!

  • Tasha
    At the Front Desk

    I was born and raised in North Dakota. Dickinson is my birth place and Bismarck is home. I have one older sister, Thea, and a niece, Gwen. Both of whom live in Bismarck. I love being around people of all ages and strive to leave everyone I encounter with a smile! I have a puppy (Murphy) and cat (Merl) who keep me busy. In my free time I like to: sing, run, travel and venture anywhere outdoors.

    Fun Fact: I went to middle school and high school with the well-known Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Carson Wentz.

    Favorite Food: mashed potatoes and gravy

  • Jill
    Behind the Scenes

    For those that don't know, I am Dr. Mike's wife. We have been married for 6 years and have 3 children. In my free time I like to bake, cook, take pictures, adventure with my kids and spend time with friends and family! I was born and raised in Watford City, ND.  I am the middle child of 1 brother and 2 sisters and have a combined total of 9 soon to be 10 nieces & nephews.

    Fun Fact: In high school a friend and I ran a lawn mowing business. We took care of over 30 yards. To this day I still like to do the mowing at our house. My lines are straighter than my husbands ;)

    Favorite Food: Chicken & vegetable kabobs on the grill with fresh grilled pineapple

  • Maija
    Weight Loss Coach

    I was born and raised in a little town outside of Duluth, Mn.  I have been living in Bismarck for 3 years now, with my husband and our puppy (Olive).  I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. We all live in various cities throughout the US, and a sister is currently living in Southeast Asia! In my free time I like to read, be outside, play with Olive, visit my family, travel and do just about any sport. 

    Fun Fact: I was born in a car at a gas station by my dad and a volunteer firefighter.  Luckily for them, not in the winter. 

    Favorite food: BBQ anything, or a cheese burger from my favorite restaurant back home.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
