Dr. V graduated from Troy Area High School in 2013. There she was an active participant in local sports playing soccer, basketball, and running track. After graduation she pursued a pre-med degree at Misericordia University before realizing her heart didn't lie in medicine, but in something else that she didn't quite know just yet. She transferred to King's College where she received her Bachelors in Exercise Physiology and fell in love with Chiropractic in the meantime. Through chiropractic, Dr. Vanessa realized the power of the human body and its ability to self heal when given the opportunity. She pursued her Doctorate in Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida where she graduated in March of 2021.  

Dr. V utilizes techniques such as Diversified, Gonstead, Activator and Thompson. She has completed the Webster Certification to treat pregnant moms and is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.    

Dr. Vanessa is trained and certified in a specific technique designed for pregnant women, called the Webster Technique. The goal of this technique is to improve mom’s nervous system function, balance the bones, muscles and ligaments of the pelvis which in turn can help keep mom and baby comfortable throughout pregnancy. Side effects may include less back pain, easier movement, and more comfort during pregnancy. Specific chiropractic care may also optimize baby’s positioning closer to birth, allowing for an easier, smoother birth experience.
