Dr. Hoffman
Lead Clinician

Thirty-four years ago, Dr. Hoffman’s dad visited his medical doctor because of severe lower back pain that was preventing him from being able to do the manual labor associated with is job. The doctor told him that there was nothing he could do for him and that he would probably end up in a wheelchair within a few years.

I’m the first to greet you when you walk into the clinic. I absolutely love my role – from getting to know each of our patients to hearing their amazing health breakthroughs and success stories! And when I’m not in the clinic, I’m in the company of my family, curled up with my kitties having a good read or out for an adventure!

I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Alberta. My husband and I moved to Red Deer in 2017. I attended school at CDI here in Red Deer and obtained my Medical Office Administration diploma. I was involved in a minor car accident and I came to Hoffman Chiropractic to receive care to treat my whiplash and I was able to recover completely.I have three young children and we enjoy spending time outside, whether that’s going for walks, playing at the playground, or just spending time in the backyard. I also enjoy reading and doing various crafts.I love being able to see firsthand the difference we make in our patients lives. I love the clinic, everyone I work with, and the patients we help!

As a Chiropractic Technician since 2013, my primary responsibility is attending to new patients. I am the one who assists Dr. Hoffman with the extensive neurologic exams and performing the initial diagnostic testing.
I studied psychology and english at Dalhousie University and have a Diploma in Practical Nursing.I like everything about my job! I enjoy working as part of a team, the brilliant doctors, and learning something new every day. I enjoy monitoring and tracking patients’ progress. Seeing them improve is amazing. I like getting to know patients and their stories; knowing everyone by their names and on a personal level is awesome. I love helping people.Working here has made me want to be the best “me” I can be. I eat healthier and exercise more. I have less back and neck pain, less anxiety, less headaches, and more energy and focus!

I’ve been part of Hoffman Chiropractic & Wellness’s team since 2018. I really enjoy being a Chiropractic Technician and meeting all sorts of people and being a part of their journey to their healthiest life. There are so many people who can’t get the help they need or are living with pain they’ve had forever, and to see them get better is so worthwhile. I’ve had chiropractic adjustments my whole life, and I can’t think of what it would be like to live without it. Simple things like shoulder and skull plate adjustments often make the difference in my mood, health and sleep schedule.I am currently in college working towards getting my diploma in Applied Psychology. I’m passionate about creative writing, Marvel, puzzles, and music.

I am from Rocky Mountain House. Started My Kinesiology Degree at Red Deer College and then completed it at the University of Alberta, Majoring in Coaching. My Parents took me to a Chiropractor at a young age and I have continued going for overall wellness and physical health.Volunteer coaching, spending time with family and friends is very important to me, movie nights with my husband, taking my dog for walks and my nieces and nephews are the light of my life.The thing I like most about my job is the patients and getting the chance to go through the journey with them towards a better quality of life. Patients that come in that have lost hope and start to feel like themselves again is the greatest reward!
