Holly, Patient Care Coordinator, Reno Office
I was born and raised in Visalia, Ca. in an amazing blended family with 3 sisters and 2 brothers, and 3 awesome parents, living separately of course. I have an A.S in Sports Medicine and practiced as a Certified Massage Therapist for 11 years in Visalia. I came to Reno in 2007, and am loving it here.
My little girl is the biggest blessing in my life! Some of my favorite activities include: cooking, jogging and more recently hiking.
I think Chiropractic is and should be important to people for preventive care. I believe keeping our bodies in alignment is necessary to keep our bodies functioning properly. Proper functioning keeps you feeling great and able to do the things you enjoy.
Preventive care, along with healthy eating and exercise habits, keeps you feeling great and able to do the things you enjoy which is very important to me. Addressing issues before symptoms arise in my opinion is the smartest way to live!
Family First Chiropractic stands out to me because of their family comes first stand point. The entire family is always welcome in our office. The environment here is welcoming and continuously happy. I feel like this is just another little family of mine, I love coming to work. I add cheerfulness, spice and a gigantic smile to this happy office. I’m a very friendly, fun-loving, organized person who strives to make people smile and get things right. To maintain my own personal health, I get chiropractic adjustments, massages, laugh often, exercise 4-6 times a week and make healthy food choices, including the necessary piece of chocolate every day!
