Introducing Jennifer Swansburg, Clinical Chiropractic Health Assistant

While I am currently in the process of obtaining my Kinesiology degree from Dalhousie University, I’ve decided to take some time off to explore the world of Chiropractic as a potential career path. I’ve worked in retail for the last nine years, and it is there where I first met Dr. Joanne and her husband Tom. After numerous conversations regarding my education with both of them, I was offered the opportunity to work at Genesis Chiropractic & Wellness Centre with Dr. Joanne initially in a job-shadowing capacity, which evolved into a full-time position as one of the clinic’s Chiropractic Health Assistants. I have since decided to return to school to finish my degree, and am currently working on my Honours Thesis in the School of Health & Human Performance, as I balance course work with clinic life!  I am so thankful that my first exposure to the world of chiropractic was with Dr. Joanne and her team; she takes a very unique, well-rounded approach to her care, and patients always come first!

“I am eager to continue to learn everything chiropractic has to offer, share the knowledge I’ve gained, and spread the chiropractic story so that I may help people reach new heights in their health potential,
in the way chiropractic has helped me.”

Introducing Elizabeth Donafeld, Chiropractic Health Assistant

I moved to Nova Scotia 4 years ago with my husband, from Southern Ontario where we were both born and raised.  I was introduced to Dr. Joanne and the clinic 2 years ago at a trade show and have been a patient ever since. From being a patient receiving regular care, I had already learned some basic knowledge about chiropractic care and the health benefits it provides. After 9 years of working retail, I suffered from low back pain and chronic muscle spasms and chiropractic was the only form of care where I achieved improvement, progress and consistency with my concerns. After completing my Bachelor’s Degree at Dalhousie University, I continued on with working in the retail industry, while always looking for a new career opportunity. I was thrilled when I was offered the position here at Genesis and am learning more and more each day about the practice of chiropractic.

I am excited for what the future holds for me at Genesis Chiropractic and look forward to sharing my chiropractic knowledge with others while helping them on their own personal journeys to wellness.
