Makayla joined the LC Dream Team in July of 2020! She graduated with her Associate in Science from Joliet Junior College in May of 2022, and she is currently a junior at Lewis University with a dual degree in Biology and Chiropractic!
Makayla hopes to become a chiropractor herself someday to show others just how important it is to live a chiropractic lifestyle 24/7!! She became passionate for chiropractic after realizing that her neck was completely backwards when she first began working at LC causing her a lot of health issues at only 21 years old. With lots of determination, she was able to fix her neck here at LC, and she was inspired to help others of all ages realize that there is hope for them to fix their own spines too.
Makayla’s dream is become Dr. Garner’s retirement plan!
Katie joined the LC Dream Team in February of 2021 hoping to learn more about how to help others. She graduated from the University of Illinois - Champaign Urbana in 2015 with a Communications and Media degree.
After graduation she decided to move to Australia as an au pair where she helped care for a family with 2 beautiful daughters for 3 years. After she left Australia, she traveled to many countries where she learned all about different cultures & different lifestyles. This sparked her passion for meeting new people and giving back and loving others. Katie enjoys helping everyone in the community live a chiropractic lifestyle and reach their full potential! She also hopes one day to be able to reach others at a larger scale while she travels the world, helping to make it a better place!
