Chris and her family enjoy the outdoors with much camping, hiking or traveling with close friends and family. These are just a few of the many hobbies Chris enjoys outside of work; if they aren’t outside it’s likely they are remodeling, building or re-furnishing furniture or even adventuring to find barnwood to turn into something beautiful to add to their home!

She joined the team in the summer of 2007 and has shown she has a well-rounded and diversified sense of how to effectively manage a remarkably busy office.

Chris was drawn to the compassionate and caring environment at Slater Chiropractic and loves that she can go to work and feel right at home while assisting in giving back to the health of people in the community. She looks forward to working with you and welcomes any questions you may have aa a current or future patient at Slater Chiropractic.
