Meet Dr. Erika
I grew up in St. Cloud, MN and played hockey on the first all-girls hockey team in Central MN. I did my pre-med at SCSU and graduated with my doctorate of chiropractic in Fall of 2008 from Parker College of Chiropractic in TX. I met my husband, Dave, in school and we married in 2010. We welcomed our first child, Gaige, in 2011 and my passion for prenatal and infant care grew. We moved back to MN in 2013 after losing my mom. I intended to work with Dave when we started Accelerate Chiropractic & Rehab, but I connected with a colleague who was a Neurodiplomate and offered me a job. I was incredibly busy with complex functional medicine cases, and worked a lot. In 2016, I had a second child, Hazel, amidst several illnesses. When I discovered I was pregnant with number 3, Maeve, I knew I needed to make a career shift. I decided to make the leap back into private practice in 2018 so I could work less and care for myself and my kids better. My practice flourished inside a maternity store, but it closed due to COVID, so I eventually merged with Dave in August 2020. We love caring for your family as if you are part of ours!
Work with Me
Functional neurology has been an integral part of my chiropractic practice since day one. I have applied this foundation to everything I do: from prenatal adjustments to frenectomy care, to helping your child reach developmental milestones, to nutritional consults and lactation. I am passionate about personalized care for moms and babies from a brain-based perspective - which I believe is why I get the results I do!
You can expect your first appointment with me to be personalized, compassionate, and thorough. I will listen carefully, ask questions, and get to know you (and/or your child) as a whole person. We'll discuss a treatment plan and at-home techniques you can do to maintain or accelerate your child's care.
