Melanie Walls | Office Manager

Sherwood Park Chiropractic Office Manager

Melanie and her Family

Melanie and her husband, Marty, (along with their 2 fur babies at the time) moved to Sherwood Park from the West Island in Montreal in December of 2004.

After travelling the world for a year, Melanie had become a regular yoga practitioner and was trained as a natural health consultant specializing in energy work. After moving to Alberta, she decided to take her Yoga Teacher Training Certification at Yoga for Today and began teaching upwards of 10 classes per week.

In August 2005, Melanie became a patient of Dr. Dave’s. By January 2006, she was employed at Brisbin Family Chiropractic, she balanced teaching yoga with her job as a Chiropractic Assistant.

“My life couldn’t be more congruent! I work in such a positive, healing environment and I love coming to work each day! Our team of CA’s and Doctors are top notch. We are so lucky!”

In 2011, Melanie and Marty had their first baby, at home: Emma and in 2014, and they had their second baby, also at home, in water: Madeleine!

Both girls were adjusted within hours of being born and they continue to enjoy the benefits of Chiropractic Care – from colds to ear infections!

As a family, they enjoy spending time outdoors, taking their dog, Maya, for walks and spending time with friends.

“When anyone we know is sick, the first thing Emma says is ‘you better get adjustment!’ I’m pretty sure she will be a chiropractor when she grows up. Madeleine greets every patient that walks through the door with a friendly hello and an invitation to play.”

Melanie is very grateful for our awesome team at Brisbin Family Chiropractic. She knows you can feel the love as soon as you walk through our doors.

Stacey Klassen

While teaching elementary school in Edmonton, Stacey first became interested in chiropractic in 2009 when she met Dr. Brisbin at a trade fair. She began
coming to Brisbin Family Chiropractic soon afterwards to help with stress and insomnia. After only a few treatments, she was sleeping through the
night and feeling much more relaxed. Not only that, but she found it easier to stand while teaching and had more energy for her students! The results
were so profound that Stacey made a presentation on the benefits of Chiropractic and shared it with her staff and her students! She knew chiropractic would be a part of her life forever!

After learning about how natural health care, like chiropractic, could help to heal a person physically, mentally, and emotionally, Stacey went back to university to get her Holistic Health Diploma. She is now certified to practice Reiki, Reflexology and Acupressure and uses these modalities to help other people achieve balance. Stacey is constantly recommending Chiropractic to her clients as a part of their care. Now Stacey gets adjusted regularly to keep her immunity up, help with hip pain, and to maintain wellness.

Stacey loves helping people to better understand wellness and to reach their inner potential. She loves kittens, cupcakes, and making people smile. One day Stacey dreams of utilizing her skills to help children manage their mental, spiritual, and emotional well being.

Stacey and her husband Aaron incorporated a spiritual labyrinth walk into their wedding ceremony September 2014. They are excited to welcome their first child in March of 2016! Stacey and Aaron are planning to have a home water birth utilizing relaxation strategies and natural pain relief techniques.

Throughout her pregnancy, Stacey got adjusted every week to help manage the changes pregnancy can often bring such as difficulty with sleep, nausea, heartburn, hip and low back discomfort and decreased energy levels. As a result, she experienced very little of these symptoms and had a comfortable, healthy pregnancy. Stacey would recommend regular chiropractic care to anyone who is expecting!

Sherwood Park Chiropractic Assistant

Kallie Cuthbertson

Kallie has been getting adjusted since she was 14; although her previous care was more relief based she has quickly learned that the wellness approach that all the doctors at BFC recommend really makes a world of difference! Kallie was recently married in October last year and even sends her husband for regular adjustments when he is in town. As a guy who works in Fort McMurray, no one knows the benefits of a healthy spine more than Cody!

Kallie, Cody, and their two Shih Tzu puppies, Maddox and Ruxxin, all love to go camping and enjoy long walks through the walking trails of Glen Allen.

Kallie also plays softball on a mixed league in Sherwood Park and is eagerly waiting for the season to start!

Lori Bushell | Chiropractic Assistant

Sherwood Park Chiropractic Assistant

Lori and her family

Lori was recommended to Brisbin Family Chiropractic for neck and upper back issues, and she continued treatment for 3 years to maintain good health. Each and every visit, she enjoyed the positive, caring environment. She knew, when the time was right, that she wanted to be a part of the “BFCTeam”!

“I made my best decision ever when I joined this awesome team in May 2015. I have enjoyed meeting, connecting and laughing with the patients, and I especially love “the littles”! I love witnessing all the positive results chiropractic care provides”

The greatest joy and blessing in Lori’s life is her family. She treasures every second with their 2 grandchildren, especially Friday night sleepovers and weekends at the cabin.

“I am so VERY HAPPY to be a part of this amazing team!”

Rachel Jenkyns | Chiropractic Assistant

Chiropractic Assistant, Rachel Jenkyns

Chiropractic Assistant, Rachel Jenkyns

Rachel started coming to Brisbin Family Chiropractic as a patient in July 2015, after experiencing residual pain from a car accident over 6 years prior. Not being able to bend or move to the side; couldn’t even shoulder check. That all changed after only 2 adjustments and she’s been coming for chiropractic check-ups ever since.

“I love coming to the clinic. The fun, friendly and caring atmosphere was so much more than I had expected! Having never been to a Chiropractor before, I was quite nervous. The ladies at the front desk put me right at ease, and Dr. Mike explained everything to me until I was comfortable. I now recommend everyone I know get adjusted. I have seen and experienced the benefits from regular adjustments; no more migraines (which I had been prescribed a daily medication to manage), also much less time being sick and having more energy throughout the day.”

After being a patient for about 7 months, Rachel had moved on from her previous job and was having no luck finding something that “fit” for her. Things quickly fell into place the beginning of March 2016 after receiving a call from Melanie early one morning, after a recommendation from Dr. Mike; “we surprised her with calling her in for an impromptu interview and all parties knew that she would be a great fit with the rest of the team.”

“Working with BFC has been amazing! Being able to come to work and actually like the work and LOVE the people I work with is such a blessing. Finally, I have found a “family” to work with, where I can be myself and make jokes and most importantly have fun while helping people in their healing journey. ”

When not at work Rachel spends quality time with her two dogs (Moose and Tuukka) and her Husband Nathan. (They will be celebrating the big one year anniversary this September (2016)
