Meet Our Passionate Team

    Co-Founder & CEOMeet Stephen

    Stephen Anson
    Co-Founder & CEO

    Steve, a father of four adult children, resides in the coastal city of Perth, Western Australia, with his Italian wife, Rebecca.

    Once a professional musician, Steve’s life was immersed in melodies and harmonies, reminiscent of Billy Joel’s famous line, “Sing us a song, you’re the piano man…”

    However, after being humbled by the world-class London music scene in the early ’90s, Steve found himself in search of a “real job”. By chance, he entered the recruitment industry and gradually climbed the ranks, eventually leading a thriving consultancy.

    In the early 2000s, ready for a fresh challenge, Steve contemplated the ideal attributes of a new career, which included:

    1. A home-based work environment so he could witness his children grow up and cherish family moments.
    2. A role in the rapidly evolving digital landscape, harnessing the internet’s transformative power.
    3. A position within the healthcare sector, aligning with his passion for health and wellness.
    4. Opportunities to explore the world and satisfy his wanderlust (30 countries and counting).

    “I think my mind went to work on a blueprint to make this happen,” Steve reflects with a smile.

    Then, providence intervened when Steve met Bill Esteb. United by their shared faith and business interests, they launched Perfect Patients in 2005.

    Today, Steve and Bill lead a global team of dedicated professionals who serve chiropractors, dentists, and Pilates enthusiasts under their brands: Perfect Patients, Smile Marketing, and Pronto Pilates.

    In moments of introspection, Steve finds wisdom in the words of theologian G.K. Chesterton, who, when asked, “What’s wrong with this world?” simply replied, “I am.”

    Steve credits all success in life to his faith in Jesus Christ. And credits all failures to himself (and God’s providence in humbling Steve so that he might learn and grow).

    “All things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” ~ Romans 8:28

    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.)

    My journey with Perfect Patients began in 2010, and from the very start, I felt a deep sense of connection with the company’s mission. Chiropractic care has been an integral part of my life since childhood, and its transformative impact on my well-being has been profound. Whether it’s providing relief after enduring seven car accidents (yes, seven! It’s like there was a “hit me” sign on my car) or enhancing my overall health, chiropractic care has become an essential companion on my life journey. Aligning my passion for chiropractic with my professional expertise has been a true win-win!

    Throughout my tenure at Perfect Patients, I immersed myself in diverse roles, from account management to marketing, design, and development. Each step along this journey has been a catalyst for remarkable personal and professional growth, allowing me to hone my skills and gain a deeper understanding of our clients’ needs and the inner workings of our company. Witnessing the positive impact of our collective efforts on chiropractors’ practices has been immensely rewarding and fulfilling.

    However, what truly sets Perfect Patients apart is the sense of family that permeates our team. Beyond being colleagues, we’re a close-knit community that supports one another both professionally and personally. This camaraderie, coupled with our shared dedication to our clients’ success, creates an uplifting and inspiring work environment that makes coming to work a true pleasure.

    Beyond my desk, I cherish spending quality time with my family and our three rescue dogs. Living in sunny San Diego is a true blessing – you can go from the beach to the snow-filled mountains in a little over an hour (depending on the season, of course)! It’s an incredible place to call home, and the diverse food scene is simply unbeatable!

    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!

    How did you come to work at Perfect Patients?
    I was born and raised in the California Bay Area. After a decade of a really long commute, we moved my family north 250 miles to live in the country and enjoy clean, fresh air. After settling into our new home and community, I looked for a remote job so I could spend more time with my family before our twins left for college. I found Perfect Patients and was so excited to join the team!

    What is your favorite thing about your job?
    We have the most amazing and talented team members! I have never worked with such a passionate and caring group of individuals. I am so lucky to get to work with each and every one of them!

    How do you spend your spare time?
    My spare time is spent with my family, swimming, wine tasting, going to the movies, and watching my Seattle Seahawks during football season. Football in our house is cut-throat since we have Steelers, Patriots and Cowboys fans competing against my Seahawks!

    You might be surprised to learn that I am very Italian! My coloring reflects my mom’s Danish genes, but I talk with my hands like a typical Italian.

    Ela Sezer
    Client Services Manager

    What led you to Vortala?

    I was drawn to Vortala’s focus on providing top-notch digital marketing solutions to healthcare professionals, specifically in the field of dentistry and chiropractic care. I have always been passionate about helping businesses grow and succeed, and being a Client Services Manager at Vortala allows me to do just that.

    What do you love most about your job?

    The thing I love most about my job is the opportunity to work with a team of dedicated professionals who are passionate about helping our clients succeed. It’s incredibly rewarding to see the impact that our work has on the practices we serve as well as their patients, and I take pride in knowing that we are making a difference in the healthcare industry.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, spending quality time with friends and family, travelling, trying different foods (luckily my husband is a chef!) and watching movies. Dancing has been a passion of mine for many years, and I love being able to express myself through movement. Spending time with loved ones and enjoying the beauty of nature are also important to me, and I find that these activities help me recharge and stay balanced.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?

    One thing that might surprise people is that I have actually jumped from the first three planes I ever boarded! When I was younger, I took a parachute course and had to do three jumps in order to get my beginner certificate. I had never flown before that, so I took off in a plane three times but never landed with them! It was definitely an exhilarating experience!

    Erica McCormick
    Manager, Website & Content Team

    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!

    Randi Grant
    Marketing Manager

    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 do you love most about working here?

    Everyone I work with loves what they do and are passionate about fighting for our clients, making their websites the best they can be. 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.

    Manager, SEMMeet Cherie

    Cherie Dickey
    SEO Team Leader

    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.

    I started with Vortala early 2018, and I was drawn to the amazing culture, which is like a big work family.

    What I love most about my job is I can work from anywhere and service our clients and leads from all over the world. My role is within sales and marketing, so I am one of the front-end representatives for any new practices that join us.

    In my spare time, I like to go on hikes and explore new waterfalls with my partner and fur-child.

    Fun fact: I actually had to learn English when I started school! Even though I was born in Australia, I have a greek heritage and grew up only speaking the Greek language.

    Tasha King
    Digital Marketing Consultant

    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.

    Markie Lee
    Content Team Leader

    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!

    Lexi Lane
    Training & Resource Coordinator

    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. I’ve done it my whole life and even coached middle school boys’ soccer, which allowed me to further indulge my love of training and teaching.

    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 led you to Vortala?
    Funny enough – my mom works here! She’s been singing the praises of Perfect Patients ever since she started. A position opened up, I applied to it – and found myself on this wonderful team after a couple adjustments (pardon the pun).

    What do you love most about your job?
    Before coming here, I worked in many facets of business and community management. What I love most about my role as a Digital Marketing Specialist is engaging new types of clients I had never worked with before. I love when clients I work with have an “AH HA!” moment and can run forward on their own with a strategy or plan we make together!

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    I love drumming, reading, and hanging out with my little dog Kipper. You can also find me trying new coffee shops on the weekends and evenings. And enjoying a cigar and nice glass of scotch with my good buddies occasionally. I’ve also been known to frequent the San Antonio Zoo and spend lots of time with the Okapi there.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?
    That I am an introvert at heart. I love my personal space – but I also love people a TON and thrive in small groups and one-on-one engagements. I love being intentional and encouraging people, even strangers.

    Other than that, I have some talents that I’ve been blessed with. Juggling and making a mean cup of pour over coffee to name a couple.

    I also was a bit of a traveler before COVID hit, I’ve been to a few countries and count is a joy and honor to have made friends in other nations. This allows me to expand my worldview and learn a TON about different cultures and approaches to life, faith, and being a human.

    Dawn Cepero
    Digital Marketing Specialist

    What led you to Perfect Patients?
    As a bit of a workaholic, I was working 16-hour-long marketing days and needed a change. I wanted to be respected not only for my work ethic but also for my time. The Perfect Patient family was an opportunity to have both. I was overjoyed meeting staff members and listening to their personal journeys within the company. After hearing everything, I knew it was the perfect opportunity for me.

    What do you love most about your job?
    I love the ability to work with lots of people from the comfort of my own home and to save lots of money on gas every year, but most importantly, I love being able to help someone by directly impacting the growth of their business and helping them reach a higher level than they anticipated was possible.

    Tell us about your work experience
    I have been working in Marketing in and around media for over 30 years – specializing in Brand Strategy, Media Placement (Traditional and Digital Media Ads), Creative, SEO, Email Marketing, and Large-Scale Event and Promotional Marketing. I also worked in Media Sales for a time being, and was the Director of Marketing for ABC TV, amongst other brands, working in both contractual consultant roles, as well as for privately held companies. I have been a wearer of many hats if you will.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    I like working and love traveling, and really enjoy doing those two things together from anywhere, and spending as much time as possible with my children and family.

    Do you have a favorite travel memory?
    I have two. We visited Oregon and then traveled by car all the way back to Florida visiting major sites and cities over 2 1/2 weeks, including the Redwood Forest, the Grand Canyon, San Francisco, Yosemite, Vegas, Albuquerque, the Painted Desert, Death Valley, Area 54 (well, we didn’t visit it, but saw the parking lot), San Antonio, New Orleans, and a slew of other great sites. We also spent 3 weeks in Europe visiting London, Pisa, Tuscany, Florence, Rome, Sicily, Mykonos, Kotoolon, Napes, Venice, Santorini, Ephesus, and Madrid. It was a trip of a lifetime and I cannot wait to visit Paris, Ireland, and Israel next. My favorite places are Key West, New Orleans, and Florence.

    What are some of your other favorite foods or things?
    I love Italian food, pretty much any kind of Italian food and coffee; I must have lots of coffee!

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?
    Ha. I once had a counterpart tell me that I could create a promotion out of a stapler. So, I have a rule. “no idea is a bad one”. That is because any idea can lead to “the” idea. I am very humble and helpful because I wouldn’t have the skills I have today if someone else hadn’t taught me and for that, I am forever grateful. I used to sing, but now not so much and I once trained a team of dancers who performed on stage at The Grand Ole Opry and in Opryland.

    My name is Monya! I am a young, enthusiastic, creative soul. In my many years of marketing experience, I have never come upon such an organized, well-structured, and well-cultured company like Perfect Patients. A perfect career home! I love my job as I am able to help multiple clients achieve their goals and create success for themselves and their companies.

    I strive to ensure my knowledge can be shared and motivate others to never give up on their dreams. I believe that you feel your best when your mind and body are healthy in both physical and mental capacities, thus I love spending my free time hiking, exercising & spending a few hours in the gym.

    I am fanatic about creating my own clothes, unique to my taste in my free time as well. People are surprised by my dedication, ambition, and ability to be compassionate and supporting. As I tend to have a serious face/neutral expressions, this tends to hide my true personality. (That’s until you spend more time getting to know me!)

    What led you to Perfect Patients?
    A friend of mine, who knew that I worked in digital marketing in the healthcare space, introduced me to Perfect Patients. After learning more about Perfect Patients, what I loved the most is their mission to help healthcare practitioners who simply don’t have the time, expertise or resources to engage in patient marketing and communication on their own. I wanted to be part of a team that was committed to doing the heavy-lifting for their clients in this way and seeing them thrive.

    What aspect of being a Digital Marketing Specialist do you find most fulfilling?

    Being able to bring a client’s unique presence to life in a digital world! I have a natural curiosity of the latest trends and best practices in digital marketing, and I really enjoy the challenge of finding creative ways to incorporate these in client strategies.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    A mix of being in nature, anything creative, and down-time! I have two dogs, and love spending as much outdoor-time with them as possible, visiting new trails and forests. Indoors, I enjoy finding ways explore my creativity – painting, working with clay, or even simply re-decorating. In my downtime, I love deep-diving into topics I’m interested in, spending hours absorbed in a good book or documentary, trying new restaurants, or indulging in a spa-treatment or two!

    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!

    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.

    I have 10 years of experience working in dental and I wanted to find something where I could utilize my prior background and knowledge in some way without having to be in any sort of medical office.

    Perfect Patients is the perfect fit for me because the company provides the flexibility that I need and I am still able to use my experience to be successful in my position.

    I love that I can help and impact so many clients by providing a service that they truly need and benefits them. Being able to interact with people from all over the country with various backgrounds rejuvenates me.

    Being a wife and mother of two school-aged children and an adopted teen, I love having family time. Whether it is going for family walks or going on getaways with the family. I love hosting so any time I can have friends and family over for a social gathering and just fellowship brings me joy.

    I believe what receives the biggest shock when I mention something about me is that I used to run an at-home daycare for approximately 4 years. I had up to two assistants and would watch up to 10 kids at one time. Also, a long, long time ago when I was a little girl, I was the selected princess in New York City’s annual Dominican Day Parade.

    With a strong background in client support and a hobby playing with WordPress® and Photoshop, I found the position advertised online and thought it would be a good fit.

    I was an athlete at school and really enjoyed playing Golf, Pool, Cricket and Squash. I am also a big fan of series and movies, especially Marvel & DC comics. More than that though, I did really well as an actor. I got myself quite a few awards for this. Being an actor, I found, shaped my personality, so I’m quite “nutty” at the best of times. I’m also a people person and when I say this, I mean I feel deeply for the Human Race.

    I like to try and donate money to a good cause every month and also constantly trying to improve myself in order to learn to see people as people, so experiencing an Outward Mindset has really been a game changer for me. Generally, I’m an easy going person who loves being in the service of people. Lets just say I’m an “Oxytocin” junkie.

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.

    Diane Worley
    Staff Writer

    I’ve been a writer all my life. In college, my mentor gave me the penname “dity”, and I have used it ever since. When I decide to go into copywriting, it was a rude awakening to find out how different that writing was from this new style. I spent almost two years learning the craft and sending out applications until Markie and Erica reached out to me.

    Becoming a freelancer for Vortala was great; being hired as a staff writer was so affirming for me. I love the camaraderie that exists in every department, and how genuine everyone is. I continue to learn more every day, and am grateful for the support I receive.

    It will probably come as no surprise that I’m an avid reader, whenever I get the chance. I’m active in my church, serving as a Trustee, and in the Drama and Spoken Word Ministries. After many years of basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, and other sports, I can no participate, but I enjoy watching just about every sport—except golf!

    I love working with children, and spent 17 years as a Girl Scout Leader. And I have 7 godchildren!

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    I was Facebook friends with a Vortala employee (Erica Van Boxel) and she posted the company was growing and hiring client support specialists. I did a little online research and gave her a call to discuss the opportunity. When she told me about the position, I knew I had the skillset that would make the job a great fit.

    What is your favorite part of your job?

    I love having the opportunity to help our clients in both big and small ways—sometimes it’s just resetting a password so they can go about their day, or offering advice that can have a major impact on their site. Clients so often expression their appreciation and it’s so rewarding to know I’m helping them by making managing a practice a little easier.

    How do you spend your spare time? 

    I live in Wisconsin with my husband and two teenage children. I like to spend time with my family, go for walks with friends and I try to sneak in dinner and movie whenever possible.

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

    I have an identical twin sister, which can really surprise people if they don’t know this before see her around town—we live less than 2 miles away from each other. Also, my parents both grew up on farms, so I was surrounded by animals all my life; however, I didn’t get my first dog until a year ago. Now I can’t imagine our home without our 8-pound teddy bear puppy, Lulu.

    What led you to Perfect Patients?

    I worked at Apple as a computer repair technician, but really missed the software side of things. I love helping people and learning new things, so this position was the perfect fit. Plus, working from home gives me the freedom and independence I thrive on!

    How has chiropractic influenced your life?

    When I was a teenager, I had a painful pinched nerve in my lower back. The medical doctors suggested painkillers that would numb the pain. My dad recommended I see his chiropractor instead. My problem cleared up completely and never returned.

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

    I’m an avid video gamer, crafter, and all around “tech person.” I build computers in my free time and often practice my artsy skills as I do also have a degree in graphic design. I spend my weeknights playing games with my friends, which gives us a way to stay in touch despite being spread across the country.

    I’m also a dog lover and dog sit for friends whenever they’re out of town!

    Is there anything about you that might surprise people?

    My hidden talent is traditional calligraphy and modern brush lettering, which I taught myself. I’ve made wedding invites and cards, and like to practice by writing quotes or stories. I love how the writing looks, and it’s so relaxing to practice.

    What led you to Vortala?
    Since I was a kid, I’ve loved everything related to computers, whether it’s the hardware or software. Most of my work experience has been in business intelligence and software development. But, I was looking for something new, and digital marketing has always intrigued me. I’ve tried out a few things in my free time, and found that I enjoyed it. That’s why when Vortala offered me the chance to be a client support specialist, I said yes right away. I’ve also had a lot of experience working with customers before, so with that, along with my love for computers, I knew it would be a good fit.

    What do you love most about your job?
    I get to face new I.T. problems every day, and it feels awesome when I’m able to fix them for our clients. Plus, it’s a great way to learn new things since I’m always encountering different challenges that I’ve never dealt with before.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    I’m a huge fan of pop-culture! I love staying up-to-date with the latest movies and TV shows. I also love watching sports like rugby and cricket. But most importantly, I love hanging out with my partner. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that I’m a proud geek who loves spending time with my gaming PC.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?
    I’m a total cat person! I think they’re the coolest and cutest animals ever. I grew up with cats, and I love how you have to earn their love and attention – you don’t own them, they own you!

    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.

    After graduating high school, I was struggling to find a workplace that accepted the skills I had acquired and encouraged the willingness to learn and improve within their company. My wonderful mother, Heather, has worked at Perfect Patients since 2006. She informed me that a few job positions were open. I was excited to apply and to especially be in contact with a company that considered my skill set straight out of high school. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to grow my career with Perfect Patients.

    What do you love most about your job?

    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.

    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.

    Share something about you that surprises most people.

    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?
    I was working as a school librarian and completing my post-grad diploma in Information Studies, Library Science when I became interested in the digital side. The modules included creating websites, databases, and best online search practices, which I found fascinating.

    I had already worked as a graphic designer with a newspaper, a content writer for advertising and marketing agencies, and as a freelance proofreader/editor. So it felt like a natural step to look for a role in the digital world where everything could be brought together. We live in a rural part of New Zealand so remote work with Perfect Patients is perfect!

    What do you love most about your job?
    I like that we are encouraged to use our curiosity to find solutions that work in our clients’ best interests, rather than just to look for easy answers. There is always something new to learn and our roles grow with us. Being part of an area which is evolving constantly; I enjoy having an insider’s knowledge of where technology may be heading next.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    I love dancing and I am part of a local Tango group. Along with my husband, I have weekly lessons and I’m getting more confident in dancing with a variety of partners without getting too tangled up!

    I do yoga every morning before work, which is a new venture for me this year, and I’m a member of a meditation group. I find this helps make me feel more grounded and put things into perspective.

    I also enjoy gardening in our wilderness. I have learnt to be patient with a two steps forward, one step back approach, gradually taming a bit at a time.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?
    I was born in England but moved to New Zealand nearly twenty years ago. As my Dad was Canadian, I’m a citizen of three countries.

    When I was very young I joined the army for a few years as a driver. I drove heavy vehicles all over the country, and then staff cars around London. Later, I was part of the Queen’s baggage train moving her belongings (and the corgis’ baskets) from one palace to another. It was quite an adventure.

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 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?

    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?
    I came across Perfect Patients at the right moment while I was transitioning from being a therapist to a graphic designer. It is exactly what I needed, a perfect combination of stability and flexibility.

    What do you love most about your job?
    I love that I can be creative and also have a structure and clear guidelines when designing for specific clients. I appreciate how people that I interact with while doing my job are extremely professional, highly knowledgeable and most importantly are always kind and considerate. Being able to make my own schedule and working from home (or anywhere) fits perfectly with my passion for traveling and curiosity about living in different and new places.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    I love to read and sometimes write. I’m particularly interested in mental health and personal development. I love poetry and autobiographical literature. I feel grateful to be able to read other peoples life stories, perspectives, the way one copes with real life struggles and finds joy and meaning.

    I like cooking and LOVE eating.

    I like to travel and see how people from other places live their lives. I also love to hike and be out in nature. It helps me regulate my nervous system.

    I love music, I think it’s a life saver. I worked as a special education teacher from 2011 to 2016 and used to combine music therapy in my work with special needs children. It was a fascinating process.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?
    I like black metal concerts. My husband likes black metal and took me to some concerts and to my surprise I really enjoyed it.

    That I used to be a cha-cha-cha dancer from the age of 10 to 14 and would have probably ended up being a professional dancer and travelled the whole world if I had never stopped.

    What led you to Perfect Patients?
    After the birth of Daughter #1, I left a career as a manager of a real estate title business. Due to continual prodding I went to work part-time in my husband’s chiropractic practice handling the administrative end of things. If anyone has worked with their spouse they will know it’s not always the easiest of feats and for the sake of all that is good I needed to find a new career.

    My husband, Mark, had signed up with Perfect Patients back 2005. With being a client, he received an email that they were looking for Account Managers. He leaned over to me from his matching Lazy-Boy recliner and said ‘I think I found something you might be interested in’. He forwarded me the email. I applied, had a Skype call with a gentleman, Steve Anson, who had a ‘real’ Australian accent. A few weeks after that call I found myself on an airplane bound for Colorado to a meet with the co-founder of Perfect Patients, Bill Esteb. I, along with another new hire, had a day of giving us the lay of the land, lunch with Bill & Marilyn at a quaint Mexican restaurant, hopped back on an airplane. It was a 48 hour whirlwind filled with promise as the company was in the early stages. It has been an amazing 17 year journey, company wise and personally.

    What do you love most about your job?
    Finding answers to issues, streamlining processes, and hopefully alleviating the apprehensiveness of the technology and compliance side of our company.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    When I am not at work you can find me out in our country barn. The Barn is place of peace where you can decompress. I enjoy woodworking, refinishing furniture, welding, riding 4-wheelers and simply enjoying the time away from technology. I also share a passion for motorcycles and on any given sunny day I will partaking in a little wind therapy.

    What might people be surprised to find out about you?
    Fun fact: I learned to read at the age of 3 and I am ambidextrous.

    Senior Lead Developer

    I came to Perfect Patients in 2011 building some standalone sites as a freelancer. That turned into an exciting and challenging project of helping create a system to build over 1000 sites using newer technology. Somewhere along the line I decided this was the home for me and accepted a full time position.

    My favorite thing about my job is seeing the difference my work makes for our internal teams and our clients. I love when I can make something faster and easier to empower others to work more effectively. In my spare time I do a lot with my 5 kids and work on our small homestead farm, gardening and raising chickens, pigs, quail, and turkeys. I love books, podcasts, and consuming information of all kinds.

    One thing that may be surprising about me is that I have a passion for learning and teaching the Enneagram as a tool for self-knowledge and development. Someday I’d like to become an Enneagram coach that helps people become who they really are, even if it’s always on the side and never earns me a cent.

    Lead Developer

    Originally I’m from England and now I live in Canada with my partner of 24 years, Kelly. We always have a revolving door of rescue animals. Right now we have 2 cats, who are always curled up together and two dogs, Moon and Rocky, who just turned 17! My favorite part of the day is dog walks and just getting outside and moving.

    I also love football, or what American’s call soccer and play every Friday night. It’s been a privilege to work at Perfect Patients for the last 10 years. Along with really enjoying the work, the best part is getting to hang out with colleagues who feel like friends from Australia to Europe and all over the United States. Being part of a company that’s enterprising such that we not just survive but thrive through challenges, like the pandemic, makes Perfect Patients an exciting place that I’m proud to be part of.
