Verlynn Kleppe, D.C.
Dr. Verlynn Kleppe graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic. She is a Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Additionally, she is also a certified group cycle instructor.
Dr. Kleppe has the following to say about her work at Whole Health Chiropractic Center:
"I decided to specialize in exercise because of the needs I saw.
1) For teaching people how to help themselves actively eliminate and prevent pain
2) Identify and correct faulty movement patterns, function and imbalances
3) Teach people of all levels how to safely and effectively exercise
4) Motivate and inspire clients to enjoy exercise and incorporate it into their lives
I really enjoy working with athletes, both helping them recover from injuries and improve performance. But what I have really come to love is helping the people who have never exercised on a regular basis.
Many have tried, lost interest, gotten injured, given up because they didn’thave the knowledge, motivation and support they needed. I love seeing them master good form and movement patterns, gain muscle, lose fat, build endurance, but mostly build confidence, learn to enjoy exercise and incorporate it into their new healthy lifestyle.
The only thing more rewarding than hearing “you guys have changed my life” is 'you guys have saved my life'. That is the reason I love the work we do at Whole Health Chiropractic Center."
Megan Minich, CHHC, MA, BS
I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach and received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I am also a Certified Personal Trainer and have a BS in Entrepreneurship and a MA in Integrative Marketing Communications.
As a Certified Holistic Health Coach (CHHC) I work with individuals to create a healthy, balanced lifestyle for themselves and their families. I teach women and men – like you – to take responsibility for their health into their own hands. I provide individualized plans with the support, information, encouragement and motivation to break free of chronic inflammation and bad habits, including sugar addiction.
Through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I am trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and study a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I am able to help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
Tory Porter, LMT
Tory Porter is our Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) at Whole Health Chiropractic Center. She received her education through Great Lakes Institute in Erie, Pa, as well as Medical Massage training at Universal Therapeutic Massage Institute in Albuquerque, NM.
From the first day of massage school, she wanted to work in a Chiropractor's office or with a Physical Therapist... and here she is! Here is what Tory has to say about serving as a LMT:
"I love hearing when I've made a difference in how someone feels, physically or emotionally. Whether it is the state of relaxation that they feel afterwards, or that they can move better, it brings me joy to know I have made a difference in someone's life.
"I work with Hospice of Warren County, serving as a massage therapist to the patients as well as their family members. So many people underestimate the power of touch, and how important it is for your health."
Tory lives in Lander, PA with her husband and black lab, Wrangler Levi. She loves spending time with family and friends, kayaking, 4-wheeling, and driving her Jeep.
Jeanna plays important roles at Whole Health Chiropractic Center, including being one of the first faces you see at our Welcome Desk to being one of our Personal Trainers. She found an interest in Personal Training and Chiropractic after she had back surgery. She realized working out was helping with the pain she had been experiencing, and wanted to help others feel good about themselves. Chiropractic helped relieve the pain so she could keep working out.
Kayaking, biking and camping are three of Jeanna's favorite activities that bring relaxation into her life.
Jeanna's favorite part of working for Whole Health Chiropractic Center is the family dynamic. In her words, "We are a big family at WHCC! I never realized how Chiropractic and working out helped someone until I started working at WHCC."
We are grateful to have Jeanna as a part of our family and team at Whole Health Chiropractic Center!
