Dr. Lisa Jewell
As a recent graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic West, I moved to the Portland area in 2015 and am excited to be working at City Fit and to call this wonderful area home. I am originally from Wisconsin and moved to California for my Chiropractic education. I fell in love with the west coast and the more holistic approach that patients are taking with their healthcare, and feel that Portland has the perfect mix of this west coast lifestyle and Midwest community. In my free time I love to travel, read, explore all the wonders of Portland and hike with my dog Mowgly.
I am excited to start practicing and implement all the knowledge I have gained through my classroom and clinical experiences. I am a certified Gavilan Technique Practitioner and am trained in the Graston Technique and the Webster Technique as well. My passion is in pre and post-natal care as well as in pediatrics. I believe the postpartum mom is sadly under-served in our culture and would love to be a resource for these patients to have the birth and recovery they want and deserve, and to serve their families in times of growth and challenge.
