Meet Liz Welch
Chiropractic Assistant

Live Better Chiropractic Chiropractic Assistant, Liz WelchAs your care plan progresses, Liz will be documenting your recovery. Every 12 visits she will conduct a quick progress examination. This makes sure your care plan is on track. Plus, it makes sure we have objective measurements that your health is actually improving.

“I’ve always been interested in health and wellness and have seen a chiropractor for most of my life,” smiles Liz. “Working here since early 2018 has given me firsthand experience before I become a chiropractor myself.”

Currently Liz is pursuing the necessary prerequisites at a local community college. When complete those she intends to enroll at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

“I hope to return after graduation to work with Dr. Joe. He’s been an amazing mentor for me,” says Liz. “He’s inspired me to explore the pediatric aspects of chiropractic while I’m at Palmer.”

Born and raised in the Sterling area, Liz spends a lot of her free time outdoors. You’ll find her doing yard work, keeping up with young daughter or pursuing her other studies as a yoga instructor.
