    How did Perfect Patients begin?

    Got a phone call from this fellow from Perth, Australia who was looking for chiropractic content for his spouse’s website. We decided to meet four months later when I was going to be in New Zealand for a speaking gig. We sat in my hotel room for two days talking about the possibilities. And the rest as they say, is history.

    What do you enjoy most about your job?

    Troubleshooting, problem solving and finding creative solutions is when I’m at my best. I still have a hand in writing the content and making sure that chiropractic principles are well represented in the newsletters, blog posts and other patient-facing content. The biggest thrill is reading the comments from actual patients who were changed in some way because of something that they read on their doctor’s website.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    When I’m not in front of a computer I putter in my organic greenhouse garden, try to prevail over the lawn and tend to my new beehive. Because of the local bear population I have to protect the hive with an electrified fence.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?

    I have flown 2,000,000 miles on United Airlines and along the way have collected over 217 different Do Not Disturb doorknob hangers from hotels around the world. (Which, by the way, is not always effective at stopping hotel housekeeping staff from waking you up in the morning.)

    How did you end up at Perfect Patients?

    A friend who worked for the company told me they were hiring. My family had been under chiropractic care for a few years, and I loved what it did for us and what it stands for. I jumped at the chance of spreading the message of how chiropractic can help anyone. I applied three (3) different times determined to be a part of the Perfect Patient’s team.

    What do you love about your job?

    Everything! Since starting in 2010, I’ve built relationships with amazing clients and colleagues. I love that I’ve had the opportunity to learn and grow personally and professionally with a team of people that are like family. We share common goals and values and that makes coming to work everyday a joy.

    What motivated you to see a chiropractor for the first time?

    My son was 8 years old when severe headaches led to intense pain and sleepless nights. Specialists couldn’t help. The same friend who connected me with Perfect Patients is married to a chiropractor and suggested I bring my son in to see her husband. I didn’t really know what chiropractic was, but I was desperate! After a single adjustment, my son slept through the night. His pain was gone. I wanted to be next! Chiropractic alleviated my migraines, and I don’t have any issues when I’m under regular care.

    What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

    Spending time with my family is my favorite pastime. My husband and son are my life! Before my son went off to college, we enjoyed playing tennis, kayaking and staying active. My husband and I are also active members of our church.

    Tell us something that might surprise people to know about you.

    I use sign language as another form of communication. I was selected to learn signing when I was in third grade. I was very shy back then, and signing provided another way for me to communicate without speaking. I grew out of my shyness and hadn’t used signing much until a church member suggested I sign during songs at our meetings. It’s such an incredible way to express yourself, and a great testimony that although there are obstacles in life, they don’t have to stop you from living. I love it when I see people who are hearing impaired fulfilling their dream – it’s so inspiring, and I wanted to be a part of that.

    What do you love about your job?

    Strategy and problem solving! I love being faced with a client who is struggling to get new patients and we are able to brainstorm, set forth a plan and get results.

    I also very much enjoy the collaborative nature of our team. Group learning, going the extra mile for a client, pushing for new ideas – this team is relentless at being the best at what we do.

    I deeply appreciate my role as a leader at Vortala, leading a team on the forefront of establishing the latest in digital marketing excellence.

    How has chiropractic changed your life?

    I started seeing a chiropractor in high school after various back issues I experienced from gymnastics. I’ve continued care, and it especially helped during my two pregnancies. My kids also see a chiropractor. My experience with chiropractic is helpful when I’m studying the behavior of people looking for a chiropractor.

    What do you do when you’re not at work?

    I live in the Berkshires in Massachusetts with my husband, two daughters and my dog, Maggie. We like to hike, enjoy summer festivals, camping and just being outside as much as possible.

    Tell us something about you that would surprise most people.

    I really enjoy woodworking. I started learning at an early age with my father but have picked it up again recently. In following with family tradition, I’m teaching my girls how to use power tools at a young age too. #girlpower

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    I first discovered Perfect Patients in 2010 when my chiropractor forwarded me an email she received saying the company was looking for an account manager, and knowing my background she thought I’d be a great fit. From the moment I opened the email and read the job post I instantly knew that this was my path. I started off working with clients and building websites which came naturally since I had a background and education in website design and development.

    Since then, I’ve held many positions within our various departments, including marketing and design. I’m currently serving on our leadership team, and happy to lead our creative and technical teams, as the Design & Development Director.

    The best part about Perfect Patients is our team… we’re like a family. I wish our clients knew just how passionate and dedicated our team is about our clients and each and every website that we create.

    How has chiropractic affected your life?

    For as long as I can remember, chiropractic has been a part of my life. As a young girl, I noticed my mood and attitude improved, as well as my grades after I started receiving regular chiropractic care. Over the years, I’ve always turned to chiropractic to get me through, including several car accidents and a couple difficult pregnancies.

    What do you do when you’re not at work?

    When I’m not at my computer I enjoy spending time with friends and family, especially my two young children. They keep me busy chauffeuring them to gymnastics, basketball, play dates, etc – but I love it! I also enjoy interior design projects, binge watching on Netflix and Amazon, and hanging out with our two dogs – a big 115-pound German Shepherd and a little 5-pound Jack Russell Terrier mix, who are inseparable.

    Stena Lambert
    Client Services Manager

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    My brother is a chiropractor and he was one of the very early clients of Perfect Patients. He received an email that they were looking for account managers right when I was looking to return to the workforce after raising my twin boys. The timing was perfect!

    The flexibility of my position is great since it allows me to be at my kids’ events, but most of all, the people are what I love. The colleagues and clients are both such incredible groups of people.

    How has chiropractic influenced your life?

    I had seen a chiropractor on and off throughout my adult life, starting with problems for headaches. When I ended up with bad back pain, I finally learned the value of wellness care, rather than resorting to the chiropractor only when I was in a crisis. As a parent, it’s hard to make time for myself, but I’m finally learning to carve out time to prioritize my health. My whole family sees a chiropractor on a regular basis.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    I like to stay involved with our community along with my daughter, Brooklynn, who is involved with the Miss America Organization. They’re the largest scholarship provider for young women, and over the years, we’ve done coat drives, helped the disadvantaged and worked with special needs children through her personal platform.

    My boys, Blake and Zachary, are active in football, baseball and basketball. My husband Bo coaches the middle school football team and a travel baseball team, so being a coach’s wife keeps me busy. My family is my favorite hobby, and I wouldn’t change that for the world!

    Is there anything that most people would be surprised to learn about you?

    Being a coach’s wife isn’t an obligation – it’s a passion. I am a baseball fanatic! My daughter works for the Detroit Tigers Energy Squad doing marketing and promotions during the games, and it makes attending them even more fun for me. Go Tigers!

    Randi Grant
    Digital Marketing Specialists Team Leader

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    I’m a firm believer in chiropractic. So when I saw the chance to work for Perfect Patients, I knew I had to apply. I researched the company and wanted to be a part of their mission, sharing chiropractic care with people who might never have considered it before. So now I get to do the marketing I love while sharing a message I’m passionate about.

    How has chiropractic influenced your life?

    I’ve gone to a chiropractor regularly since I was fourteen years old. I was a competitive swimmer and my parents took me in for shoulder pain I was experiencing. It helped tremendously. I continued to go to maintain my shoulder while rowing in college and to help with migraines. I recently moved back to my hometown and am so excited to be able to go to the chiropractor I first saw as a teenager. He helped me have a comfortable pregnancy and I’m happy to report that I haven’t taken migraine medication in a year and a half!

    My husband is a patient as well and I know it’ll be part of our daughter’s future. If we can feel better naturally, I’ll choose that every time over taking medication.

    What do you do in your spare time?

    I love to bake and often browse Pinterest for new recipes. People know me for my chocolate chip cookies and I like finding creative ways to bake with the lemons from a tree in our yard. My husband’s family has a home in Arizona and we love going there and jet skiing on the Colorado River. When we’re not there, you can find us in the pool or at the beach (perk of living in California – those are year-round activities!). Reading is my other passion. I was an English major, so I’ve read my fair share of classic literature. Now I just prefer books that are entertaining and light-hearted!

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    In 2010, I decided to take a trip around-the-world to celebrate my 40th birthday and maintained a blog to document my travels. Part of that creation involved website building, search engine optimization, and content marketing. Along the way, I did freelance work in local digital marketing and all of these skills paved my way to Perfect Patients.

    I was overjoyed when I found this position. The company’s mission statement resonated with me. Plus, the ability to work at home allowed me to continue my nomadic lifestyle of moving to a new place every so often and experiencing a new adventure. It’s been a great match, not only professionally, but for my personality as well. I’m passionate about learning, supporting our clients and production department.

    How has chiropractic impacted your life?

    Being raised in a family who turned to traditional Western-style medicine, chiropractic wasn’t really on my radar until I started this job. As I read our clients’ websites, my beliefs aligned with chiropractic’s drug-free, nonsurgical philosophy. Though I don’t have any medical issues, I’ve seen a chiropractor since to maintain my health. 

    How do you spend your spare time?

    In 2016, I came to Cancun to visit another Perfect Patients employee, thinking I’d stay for six months. Soon, though, I was hanging out with fellow expats, enjoying the culture and realized I wanted to stay. When I’m not working, I’m either surfing the web, playing with my cat, studying Spanish, meeting-up with other expats (Lucha Libre, anyone?), or exploring the Yucatan.

    I’m a gamer, currently leveling through Guild Wars® 2. Also, I recently got into cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin) and am a member of an online community called Steemit, where I can earn cryptocurrency for sharing my thoughts and ideas.

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    Finding my position here was a fortunate fluke. I wanted to work remotely, was intrigued by the company and applied. In fact, Perfect Patients was the only company I applied at because after my interview, I was certain that I wanted to work here. I started in an account manager role and continued as a Website Success Manager until we began our paid search services. I love spending my time wrapped up in a client’s Google AdWords campaign and thinking about the nerdy stuff that makes it work. Being able to work from home is an added bonus, not to mention the amazing team and clients that I get to work with every day.

    How has chiropractic affected your life?

    I’ve been seeing a chiropractor for some time and am a wellness patient. Like so many people, I sought out the help of a chiropractor because of back pain that I later found out was from a knee injury. I now consider chiropractic part of my overall self-care routine and visit my chiropractor regularly.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    I really enjoy cooking. I have some dietary sensitivities, so I like to MacGyver recipes to be paleo-friendly. My partner Kelly and I eat healthy, growing our own organic veggies and raising our own free range chickens for eggs and meat. I buy most of my food from local farms, not grocery stores, and am passionate about ethical meat production.

    My passion for animal welfare carries over to our spoiled pets, which include an American bulldog, 2 Kunekune pigs and five guinea fowl. I also volunteer at a horse rescue.

    What’s something about you that might surprise most people?

    I was a founding member of the Toronto Roller Derby League. We were a group of 12 who didn’t even know how to roller skate, but were inspired by a TV show about a roller derby league and decided to start our own. I’m proud to say it is still going strong, although I had to bow out after I injured my knee in a motorcycle accident some years ago. It didn’t deter my love for motorcycles, though – that’s been a lifelong passion.

    How did you end up at Perfect Patients?

    I’m originally from the Flint area of Michigan. During freshman year at college, my best friend and I made a pact to move to Los Angeles after graduation, and we did! Another employee I knew who worked at Perfect Patients told me about a job opening that they thought would be perfect for me. I ended up getting the position, which was on the marketing team. Later, I moved to the content team leader role.

    I love what a supportive environment we work in. Everyone is understanding and it’s truly a team-oriented workplace – open, inviting and dedicated to doing what it takes to give our clients the best service.

    What do you do to stay healthy?

    I like to be active and go for walks, take spinning classes, try new workouts and do Pilates. Luckily, my gym is within walking distance, and I also live right by the beach. I try to eat healthy most of the time, but balance it with indulging my sweet tooth every now and then.

    How do you like to spend your spare time?

    I live in the Los Angeles are and firmly believe you could eat at a new restaurant every day for the rest of your life and still not try them all! I’ve been known to binge-watch on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime. If there’s something I can do outside, I’m in!

    What’s something about you that would surprise most people?

    I am fascinated by police chases. Living in Southern California, there are a bizarrely large amount of them. They’re aired on TV almost always, and it’s so interesting because nobody ever gets away, yet everyone always thinks they can. I’ve even signed up for alerts that are sent to my phone so that I can tune in when there’s a live feed going!

It’s inspiring to work here, particularly with the design team. They’re such positive, awesome people and it constantly reignites my spark to want to do high-quality work and contribute to our team.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    I love distance running and am always training for some sort of race. I also really enjoy baking, trying new recipes, and cookie decorating. My husband and I love to be outside whenever we can, too.

    Share something about yourself that might surprise most people.

    It’s a little difficult to explain, but I have a pretty great party trick in being an alphabet aficionado. I can say it forward, backward, inside and out (matching up A-Z, B-Y and so on), or with saying the sound of the letter instead of the name. None of that has ever proved to be useful, but it’s fun.

    How did you end up at Perfect Patients?

    I had spent 17 years in the chiropractic field. Originally, I worked at the front desk, a position that later evolved into being a health assistant. In this role, I assisted with new patient examinations and training new staff, which ignited my passion for teaching others.
    I obtained a job at Perfect Patients as an account manager, taking care of our international clients. When the need arose, I started training new employees. Later, when we developed the client support department, I was asked to be the head of it and gladly accepted.

    What are your words to live by?

    I love guiding my team members and seeing them move on and thrive in different roles within the company. My mission is to educate, motivate, encourage and inspire, and that’s what I get to do every day, whether for our employees or clients. A positive mindset is a vital part of my mission, and I like to bring that vibe to our client support team. Though we work remotely, I want to bring a sense of community to everything we do.

    How has chiropractic changed your life?

    My son was the first of our family to see a chiropractor. He was about three when he started having hearing problems. The medical doctors were talking about removing his adenoids and draining his ears. Fortunately, someone suggested we try chiropractic. Within a month, his hearing and entire personality were completely transformed. That’s when my entire family started care, and it allowed the frightening dizzy spells that would leave me in bed for a day to completely disappear.

    What do you do in your spare time?

    I am on a lifelong quest for knowledge. Whether it’s reading books, surfing the internet or poring over any other source, I’m thirsty to learn more about our world, other people or myself. I think if you’re not learning, you’re dying, so I’m always trying to grow as a person. I’m also a health nut, so I exercise every day and eat a balanced diet.
    I have three awesome kids, and being a mom was the best job I’ve ever had. I love spending time with them, and with my two dogs, too.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?

    I used to be an esthetician and makeup artist and enjoy helping people discover how to enhance their natural beauty. It’s such a great creative outlet! Something else people might not know is that I’m an avid soccer player.

    How did you end up at Perfect Patients?

    I’d been in banking for years and after an acquisition, was laid off. I wanted to find a position with some flexibility and was talking it over with my chiropractor. She’d just received an email from her website service, who were seeking people for an open position. It just happened to be Perfect Patients. I applied, and my chiropractor sent a recommendation letter in for me, which I’m grateful for to this day.

    The best part about this job is, by far, the people. Our clients and my colleagues alike are incredible. Though we work remotely, I feel like I know them all personally.

    How has chiropractic impacted your life?

    Honestly, it changed everything for me. I became a chiropractic patient later in life after having suffered from terrible migraines for most of my life. I even participated in a headache study in hopes of finding a solution. Combined with severe back pain, it was just too much for a 25-year-old to go through! A co-worker of mine suggested chiropractic. I didn’t know what it was and even had a misconception that it could be dangerous, but I ended up giving it a try.

    Within a couple of months, I was migraine-free, and still am to this day. My chiropractor was there for me through my pregnancies, too, when I had morning, afternoon and night sickness and the common aches and pains that expecting moms get. Our entire family visits the chiropractor every 4-6 weeks.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    My two daughters keep me busy with their activities, which I love being available to do with them. I’m active and enjoy running, doing Pilates and being outdoors or relaxing with a book. My husband and I cook together, and the whole family enjoys Friday night dance parties. We make pizzas, turn on music and move around. My daughters might occasionally find it embarrassing, but if there’s music on, I’m moving to it!

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?

    My husband and I own a whole body cryotherapy business. It’s an effective, efficient way to reduce inflammation and take advantage of your body’s natural healing properties. We find that it’s perfectly aligned with our belief in living a more holistic lifestyle.

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    I spent years working on a marketing team with a travel company. With a father in medical practice, I had experience in the health care field and had even built his website. I loved the idea of having a flexible schedule. Even more so, working alongside a passionate, fun and supportive team is the best! We go the extra mile not just for our clients, but for each other, too.

    How has chiropractic impacted your life?

    Of course, I spend my days talking shop – building sites, helping clients or interviewing them for content. But I’ve had a personal experience with chiropractic, too. A car accident I was in led to back and neck pain, and my chiropractor got me through that. Today, I am happy to say that I don’t have any residual effects from the collision!

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    My spare time is spent playing video games with my husband, Alan, taking long walks with our dog, or happily cooking my way through the deliciousness on smittenkitchen.com. It’s usually a part of my daily routine to watch some Parks and Recreation, and I know way too much of the dialogue by heart!

    Is there anything about you that would surprise most people?

    I recently just got around to reading the Harry Potter books and am totally hooked. Best books ever! Also, when I asked my husband to help me answer this question, he said, “Tell them your taco game is epic!” Thanks, honey.

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    Years ago, when I was a chiropractic assistant, I heard about an opportunity with Perfect Patients as I was preparing to move out of the country. I didn’t end up with that position, but I kept my eye out for the right one, knowing that I would love working with this company. I have a heart for chiropractic and natural health solutions and I was excited to support chiropractors by building amazing websites.

    After my husband and I returned home to Ohio, I was hired to work in our client support department, then a few months later I moved into production. Seeing the pieces of a website come together is fascinating. The best part is getting to know our doctors and understanding their mission for their patients, then striving to make that come alive in their online presence.

    How has chiropractic changed your life?

    I’ve been a chiropractic patient for quite some time, and it particularly helped me during pregnancy. My youngest was adjusted days after he was born. He’s been my fussiest baby, so when he gets cranky, I know it’s time for an adjustment!

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    My four young boys! We homeschool, so I don’t have a lot of free time. I have a lot of interests, though, like reading, painting and other creative outlets. I’m currently learning the art of hand lettering.

    Is there anything about you that people are usually surprised to find out?

    I married a military man who was stationed in Korea at the time and came home on leave for our wedding. We met up in Germany two months later to start our life together. Over our three years there, we traveled all over – Prague, Berlin, the Mediterranean, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia – though our last trip wasn’t as long because I was eight months pregnant at the time! We really enjoyed our time in Europe and can’t wait to take our boys back one day!

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    My background was in writing and editing going all the way back to my college newspaper days. I’d been working as a freelancer but wanted something more stable when my husband decided to attend graduate school. I didn’t want a traditional office job and had an interest in health, so the position seemed like a perfect fit.

    I started off in client support, which gave me insight into the rest of the company. I need to feel like I’m helping people and making a difference, and I get to do that for my clients. They want to be chiropractors, not think about their website presence, and we step in to help them successfully run their business.

    How has chiropractic impacted your life?

    I’m six feet tall and often feel like I live in a world not meant for people as tall as me. I’ve suffered from headaches, probably from having to hunch over or put my neck into weird positions. I’ve seen a chiropractor for years and know it’ll always be a part of my life.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    I spend my spare time mostly with my husband Joe and the rest of our family, who all live close by. I’m an animal lover, and we have a 20-pound cat named Baxter – hopefully we’ll get a puppy soon since we just bought a house! I like to spend time outside and find fun restaurants to try out. I’m obsessed with eating healthy, organic food and feel fascinated by the role nutrition plays in overall health. Joe and I also love to travel, and I enjoy continually learning and growing in my faith in God.

    Share something about you that might surprise people.

    Joe and I were high school sweethearts. We’ve been married for several years and were together for some time before that. I’m very proud to say that he recently graduated with his family nurse practitioner degree and works in the ER.

    I’m the main point of contact for many of our new clients and work with our other teams to produce an awesome, conversion-focused website.

    How has chiropractic changed your life?

    I see a chiropractor for wellness care. I take my two young daughters, too. I’ve found that we’re sick a whole lot less than we ever have been since being under regular care. I also put my body through grueling daily CrossFit® workouts, and the chiropractor helps keep me able to do them.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    My husband Chris and I have two girls, Haddie and Lillie. We own a CrossFit gym, so most afternoons, I take the kiddos there and sneak a workout into my day. It’s our home away from home, and if we’re not there, we’re with our other friends and family.

    Is there something about you that might surprise most people?

    What brought you to the Perfect Patients team?

    I worked for about a decade with tech companies in Silicon Valley. Time after time, I saw a company raise huge sums of money, spend it as quickly as they could and then close up shop. I went looking for a company that creates real value for their customers, is growing and bases their operations on honesty and integrity. Perfect Patients seemed like an ideal fit, especially when combined with my love of creating websites.

    It’s exceeded all my wildest expectations. Everyone here is smart, creative, kind and talented, and working together is highly valued. It’s a joy to get up in the morning, log on and start my day.

    How has chiropractic impacted your life?

    Periodic episodes of acute lower back pain led me to see a chiropractor later in life. In my younger years, I was in a band and would haul equipment in and out of venues, and it never occurred to me to lift properly. When the pain hit, I wouldn’t be able to walk for days. The care I receive reduces the frequency and intensity, and I only wish that I’d known about chiropractic when I was younger!

    What do you like to do outside of work?

    I love spending time with my family, including twin sons and a teenage daughter. I spend a lot of time carting my daughter to her school functions and flute lessons. My wife and I enjoy cooking together and taking daily morning walks with our little dog, Louis. Reading is another passion of mine, and I’ve organized a local reading discussion group.

    I don’t play music for money anymore, but I host an old-fashioned community singalong in my town from time to time. I play guitar, harmonica, keyboard and banjo, which I took up after Pete Seeger’s death. It’s been a fun learning process since banjo is sort of backwards compared to the guitar.

    What surprises most people to find out about you?

    I once received a cease and desist order from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. In the early days of podcasts, I realized there were no podcasts of the daily scripture readings and started doing one myself. Unfortunately, I used a version of the scriptures that the conference holds a copyright on. I immediately complied with the C&D, and at this point, it’s kind of a funny story and a badge of honor.

    How did you end up being a part of the Perfect Patients team?

    I have a background in marketing working most recently for a small start-up. Prior to that, I was a Senior Account Executive at a marketing agency working with numerous clients in the travel tourism industry. I knew I wanted to find a company with an awesome team that could continue to grow my career and Perfect Patients was an awesome fit.

    What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

    I’m married to a fire fighter named Randy and we have two children named Savannah and Dylan. We live by the beach and enjoy spending our time outdoors, camping and traveling to exciting places we have never been before. We also are huge Disney World fans! When I am not working, you will probably find me relaxing with a good book or playing on the beach with my family.

    Is there anything about you that might surprise people?

    I have written a few novels in the women’s fiction genre over the years. I started back in my college days, and do not have quite as much time for it now-a-days as I would like to, but my goal is to publish a novel one day!

    How did you end up being a part of the Perfect Patients team?

    I’ve been working in web design, development and programming for 17 years. I was looking for a change that would utilize the skills I’d developed and wanted to continue working remotely. When I found this position, it felt like a perfect fit, and in this industry, being able to work at home really makes sense.

    What keeps you busy when you’re not at work?

    I’m a huge baseball fan. I spend my time watching, reading and writing about baseball and run a New York Yankees fan site. I was born and raised in New York, and though I’ve relocated to Kentucky, I still cheer on my team. Surprisingly, I don’t find Kentucky all that different from Long Island – I have all the conveniences close by but without the traffic and noise.

    Is there anything about you that might surprise people?

    I know just about every line to every James Bond film. I saw my first one, Goldfinger, as a kid and have loved them ever since. My favorite Bond movie has to be Casino Royale, but there’s no question that Sean Connery is the best Bond, followed closely by Daniel Craig and Timothy Dalton.

    What brought you to Perfect Patients?

    I was looking for a new position and decided it might be fun to look at remote opportunities. I saw an opening here, and the more I learned about the company, the more I loved it. Every day since has reaffirmed my choice to join the company. The teamwork, dedication to work/life balance and commitment to excellence are truly refreshing.

    How do you like to spend your spare time?

    My favorite thing to do is travel to a tropical beach and go snorkeling. There isn’t a lot of opportunity for that in Portland, but I like to visit microbreweries and try different styles of beer. In the summer, I enjoy sitting by the local rivers.

    What might people be surprised to learn about you?

    I have lived in the U.S., England, and the Philippines. I grew up in the Philippines and returned to the U.S. after high school to complete my undergraduate education, majoring in English. I was stationed in England while I was in the Air Force working on F-15s and then returned to the U.S. afterward before completing my MBA.

    How did you end up joining the Perfect Patients team?

    I ran a Burning Man theme camp with someone who works here. She just raved about the company and its employees. When a position opened up, I was so excited to apply. I love learning and expanding my knowledge and feel fortunate to be a part of our team!

    What keeps you busy in your spare time?

    I’m a knitter, an artist and love cooking with my husband. For years, I was the one who always made dinner, but my husband realized how much he enjoyed being in the kitchen, and now we have fun cooking together. I paint with acrylics and watercolor and like to sketch. My next project is to learn how to weld so I can create metal sculptures. I also keep busy by teaching adults in our community how to use computers and have eight wonderful grandchildren.

    What might most people be surprised to learn about you?

    I like to say, if you know me, you know me. But one thing that you might not realize is that I’m an introvert. I’m friendly and love to teach or work in groups, but I cherish my alone time. It’s precious to me, and I horde that time to recharge and create my art.

    What do you love most about your job?

    Hearing about the impact our website service has on chiropractic practices and patients. I love new patient conversion success stories! It’s rewarding to learn about the positive impact our work has on practices and the health of the people in the practice communities.

    How has chiropractic changed your life?

    I began seeing a chiropractor when I was diagnosed with Scoliosis at the age of 13. I credit a back brace and chiropractic care with keeping my spinal curves beneath the threshold for surgery.

    As an adult, I have continued wellness chiropractic care that included prenatal adjustments for a healthy pregnancy. The care I’ve received as a long-term chiropractic patient helps me apply a patient perspective to my work.

    What would we find you doing when you’re not at work?

    I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially during the summer months in the Midwest. I live in Green Bay, Wisconsin with my husband, daughter, and our Yorkshire Terrier. You’ll find us walking in our neighborhood, grilling dinner in our backyard, sitting around a campfire, or relaxing at area beaches.

    Share something about yourself that might surprise most people.

    I love the game of golf. I started playing as a child and I also married an avid golfer. Our baby daughter even has a junior golf bag already!

    What’s the best part of your job?

    With a background in customer service and creating web content, I loved the idea of having a flexible position that would allow me to spend time with my kids while making a meaningful contribution. I enjoy the technical side of building websites and making sure every detail is just right. Delivering a helpful, friendly service gives me a lot of joy. This job is truly one of the best I’ve ever had – my team members and clients alike are kind, flexible and collaborative. As an organization, we lift each other up, and I like that positivity to be reflected in the service I provide.

    How do you stay healthy?

    I live close to the trails around the San Francisco Bay and love to take walks and check out the glorious views of the downtown area, Yerba Buena Island, the Bay Bridge and on clear days, the top of the Golden Gate Bridge. I walk 5k as often as I can and use the time to listen to my favorite podcasts such as Marc Maron, RuPaul’s What’s the T? and NPR’s Fresh Air.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    I like hanging out with my family and taking them to the park or community pool. I’ve been knitting for 13 years, but mostly, my spare time is spent as a housing activist. Our metropolitan areas haven’t kept up with increasing housing demands, and folks across the country pay more than 30% of their income on rents and mortgages. These big numbers mean it’s tougher for people to pay for health care like visiting the chiropractor, among other necessities. I’m a regular at planning board and city council meetings, encouraging my representatives to approve housing developments. I also recently completed the Emerge California program, which trains young women to run for office.

    What’s something about you that might surprise people?

    As a film major in college, I participated in a worldwide filmmaking experiment called Life in a Day. The footage I contributed, of my infant son shaking a bell, was included in the final film. It was screened in theaters internationally and eventually distributed by National Geographic.

    How did you end up at Perfect Patients?

    I have a degree in information technologies, specializing in visual communications that include website design and marketing. With living in a rural area, it was tough to find a job using my background, so I started to look for something online. I didn’t think the posting was legitimate at first because it seemed too good to be true!

    SEO was the missing piece in my skill set, and it’s been the best job I’ve ever had.

    Have you been to a chiropractor before?

    I’ve experienced tremendous benefits from chiropractic. Debilitating lower back pain stemming from a sled riding incident left me unable to sit or walk for a time. I also had neck problems where I couldn’t look over my shoulder. The chiropractor identified a lower vertebra that had twisted from the jump my husband had made on our sledding hill that I thought looked fun to try! Everything was cleared up thanks to chiropractic.

    What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

    I love being outdoors in the summer and doing activities like kayaking, riding ATVs and going camping. In the winter, I like to snuggle up with my pets and read a good book or crochet. I have a daughter and three stepchildren, and my oldest stepson has five kids, making me a grandma. Our family is rounded out by three cats, a giant dog and a goldfish won at a fair that’s somehow survived for seven years!

    Is there anything about you that might surprise most people?

    I play the guitar and sing, preferably around a campfire on a warm night. My favorite song to play is “After the Glitter Fades” by Stevie Nicks.

    How did you become a member of the Perfect Patients team?

    I’d been a freelance web developer and really missed it. When I saw the job posting at Perfect Patients, I jumped at the opportunity. I love the creative aspects of the job. I get to take a client’s vision, walk it through the stages of production and present them with the finished product. My team is awesome, and I love the freedom in working hours that allows me to be a mum.

    What impact has chiropractic had on your life?

    Once I started this job, I was surrounded by chiropractic and decided to give it a try. A disc in my low back ruptured, and physiotherapy and spinal injections hadn’t done enough. Chiropractic has helped, and now my son goes, too, to keep his spine properly aligned.

    How do you stay busy outside of work?

    My daughter, son and a high-maintenance dog fill most of my spare time. We love to be outside and head to the nearby beach, walk along the river or go geocaching. I tend to be the neighborhood babysitter, so my house is usually filled with kids.

    What’s something about you that surprises most people?

    I used to be a face and body artist. My dad was a tattooist when I was young, so I grew up in an artistic family. Painting is much less pressure than tattooing though, since you can wash it off if you mess it up! I did it at kid’s birthday parties and especially enjoyed doing pregnancy belly paintings, some of which ended up being featured in magazines.

    How did you end up at Perfect Patients?

    I knew the sister of someone who worked here and send the posting to me, thinking I’d be a perfect fit. I wasn’t looking for a job, but after reading it, I was intrigued and thought it sounded ideal. I started in client support. During my time there, I began identifying ways to be more proactive and take extra steps for our clients’ sake. From there, I moved to the sales side of the company.

    What’s the best part of your workday?

    I like partnering with people to better their business. We offer more than setting up a website and feel invested in the success of each client’s practice. I really enjoy talking with our doctors to find out if something should be changed on their site or added to it, ensuring that it stays up-to-date and in line with how they want to be represented.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    I constantly chase my 16-year-old daughter, Hannah. She’s a competitive horseback rider, so we’re often doing projects in the barn, cleaning out the trailer or prepping for a show. The only time I seem to be still is during my working hours!

    Hannah and I are both bloggers and do reviews for travel, restaurants and different products, on a local, national and international level. We love to travel and do photography, so when we get an offer to go whitewater rafting in West Virginia or try a zip line tour, we’re there with our camera and GoPro ready to document it. I’m wired to stay busy!

    Is there anything that might surprise people to learn about you?

    From scratch, I began a children’s nonprofit and ran it for 12 years. It became a multi-million dollar business that’s still going strong today, providing clothes for thousands of kids. It’s even named after Hannah because the tax paperwork came through two days before she was born. I joke that it feels like I have twins who came into the world two days apart because it felt like two subsequent labors of love!

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    I worked as an advertising copywriter for Entertainment Publications Network and was seeking a new opportunity. I saw that Vortala was hiring and knew it would be a fantastic fit. I’m grateful for the opportunity! In my role, I focus on creating engaging website content that meets our company’s standards, constantly trying to exceed our clients’ expectations.

    How do you stay healthy?

    Chiropractic has helped me with various issues over the years. I try to exercise regularly, eat clean (at least, for the most part!) but balance it out with splurging on my weaknesses occasionally, like gourmet pizza.

    What would we find you doing when you’re not at work?

    My husband and I live in a beautiful, bucolic community. We enjoy walking or relaxing on our screened-in porch. I’m a big HGTV fan and love “House Hunters International” and am intrigued by the tiny house movement.

    Travel is big on my list of things I like to do. Our next trip is to Florence, Italy, and we’ll also spend some time in the Chianti region. I went there during my junior year of college, so I’m excited to go back!

    Share an interesting fact about you that would surprise most people.

    The summer after my junior year of college, I interned for the Communications Director at KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, my hometown. During that summer, I had the privilege of meeting Oprah Winfrey, who was there to see my boss. I remember getting her a soda. I wish I had gotten her autograph!

    I also can speak a bit of conversational Japanese as my mother-in-law is Okinawan. When she stays with us, I enjoy practicing with her. We’ve been blessed to have visited Japan several times to see my husband’s extended family there.

    How did you end up at Perfect Patients?

    After years of working in the accounts field, I was taking some time off to re-evaluate and spend time with my sons. I came across this opportunity and immediately loved the idea of working at home and having part-time hours that would leave me with a flexible schedule.

    What keeps you busy outside of work?

    As a family, we try to take daily walks. Our boys participate in sports including football, t-ball, karate and swimming, which keeps my husband and me active. We like to travel when we can. My husband is from Indonesia, and we go back as often as possible during school holidays. Between that, work and some volunteering I do to help out families in our community, my time is well-occupied!

    What might surprise most people to find out about you?

    I’ve worked overseas in Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand. In fact, my overseas experiences started early, since I was born in the UK! I live in Perth now, where I grew up. My favorite out of all the places I’ve spent time in has to be Bali. I spent about 12 years working in Indonesia and loved it. We’re fortunate that it’s only a few hours’ flight away.

    I knew I wanted a work environment with great values and colleagues. I couldn’t have imagined, however, that it would be this enjoyable! I get to work with people all over the world, expanding my knowledge thanks to their shared expertise. Everyone does their best to help each other. I’m grateful to have this opportunity.

    What do you do to stay healthy?

    I try to eat healthy foods and be as active as I can. One of my favorite things to do is go hiking in the mountains with my family.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    It’s almost easier to tell you what I don’t like to do! I get a lot of value from doing things that feel productive or beneficial like reading a book, being in nature, taking pictures or spending time with family and friends. I’m most passionate about traveling. I’m fascinated by discovering new places such as Italy – the art over there is breathtaking.

    Is there anything about you that people are usually surprised to find out?

    I have a passion for learning, particularly from the people around me. I can do handy things like change electrical outlets, but there is one particular thing that I want to learn: sign language!
