Animal Chiropractor, Advanced Animal Neurology
Dr. Annie decided to become a chiropractor after seeing vibrance and vitality restored to her 12-year-old dog by a chiropractic adjustment. What happened that day changed everything!
“Providing care and comfort to animals is a profound honor. Every day I am inspired by how genuine and capable they are.”
Since 2008, Dr. Annie has been providing chiropractic care to animals at multiple locations throughout the Twin Cities. She loves her work and all of her four-legged clients!
Dr. Annie supports dogs and cats in all stages of life. She enjoys adjusting litters of newborn pups and is deeply moved by caring for seniors. She spends much of her time working with canine competitors in agility. She is present at local agility trials and has travelled to support her clients at national competitions around the country.
She has an incomparable devotion to her animal clients. She is constantly acquiring new knowledge and skills to enhance the effectiveness of her chiropractic care. So much so that her husband, Scott, calls continuing education, “her hobby!”
Her desire to provide well-rounded support to her animal clients has led her to become certified in canine sports massage (through Supreme Motion) and canine fitness training (through the University of Tennessee.) She has also completed training programs in advanced veterinary neurology, applied kinesiology, craniosacral therapy and reiki.
She completed her basic animal chiropractic training at the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in Sturtevant, WI in 2008. She is certified in animal chiropractic by the College of Animal Chiropractors, and has served on its Board of Directors. She is also certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA) and the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA.)
While she was completing her doctorate in human chiropractic at Northwestern Health Sciences University, she spearheaded the effort to legalize animal chiropractic in Minnesota. Legalization took three long years (2005-2008,) but the outcome was certainly worth it! She and her husband founded Minnesota Animal Chiropractic Care, which was the online hub for the animal chiropractic legalization effort in 2005, and today is a public awareness instrument and provider directory for animal chiropractic.
Dr. Annie also supports the community of animal chiropractors by teaching continuing education courses for her colleagues.
