Because she feels so strongly about the benefits of chiropractic care, her whole family, children and grand children  have been receiving chiropractic care since birth.

April will always greet you with a huge smile, great laugh and the ability to handle any office concern you may have.

Caitlyn Westergren, Chiropractic Assistant

Caitlyn was inspired to enter the natural healthcare field as she’s always enjoyed helping people and being in a social environment. “It occurred to me that by combining these two, I would be best fit as a chiropractic assistant.” Currently, Caitlyn is working on her Bachelor of Arts in Marketing and Advertising at Cal State University, East Bay, in Hayward. She possesses people skills, problem-solving abilities, and communication skills, all of which serve her well in her position. For Caitlyn, the most fulfilling aspect of being a CA is being able to be helpful to the doctor while also being able to help the patients. “I love seeing the patients leave happier and in less pain than when they came in.” Outside the practice, Caitlyn enjoys spending time with her family and dog. She also loves traveling.
