Native to: Born in Iowa and raised in Shreveport, LA
First Job: Porter’s Fine Dry Cleaning in high school—I worked at the front desk, took dry cleaning orders, waited on customers, and was a cashier. Working at Porter’s taught me a lot about responsibility, customer service, and treating customers with respect by always knowing their name. I use those same customer service skills, including always be friendly, now that I am a doctor with my patients.
Who was the most influential person to you as a child?
My grandfather, Norm, was happy all of the time, and he would go out of his way to help anybody. He was probably one of the very best people that I knew. He had fantastic moral character, he was a strong Christian man, he led his family well, and he loved his family more than anything. He was just a great man.
Why did you become a chiropractor?
I first went to the chiropractor in high school for low back pain. The chiropractor I went to was a female, Dr. Sino, and after I graduated from high school she offered me a job. I worked for her for about a year and half doing therapies. At that time I didn’t have a lot of direction about where I wanted to go with my life, but later when I started thinking about what I wanted to do with my life Dr. Sino was the one who inspired me. I thought chiropractic would be a great thing for me to do.
Why did you specialize in pregnancy and pediatrics?
I think treating pregnant women and new babies is the highlight of my day, because I love to see new life forming. To be able to take care of children before they have problems is fantastic, because I know that I am able to give them a good start to their life.
What is one modern convenience you couldn’t live without?
I could totally see myself growing my own food and living as a survivalist, but I don’t think I could live without running water. I couldn’t live without showers.
What is your favorite place to visit?
Hawaii. Hawaii is magical. Harkness Park in Connecticut is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to also.
What is your favorite way to spend your weekend?
Goofing off with my husband—even doing chores and going to the grocery store is nice. I really like spending time with him. I like to read and spend time with my two dogs and friends.
Where do you like to volunteer your time?
Currently, I am on Board for Big Brothers Big Sisters. I’ve been a big sister for 13 years and it’s one of the best things that has happened in my life. My little sister is truly a sister and best friend to me. Big Brothers Big Sisters brought that to me. I feel like it was such a big impact on my life and my little sister’s life that I want to support an organization that fosters those mentor relationships. I’m also involved in ICAN. It is a support network with a group of moms who support each other after an unplanned cesarean or as they plan to have a vaginal birth after cesarean. It is an organization that provides support and research to the community.
What makes Loehr Chiropractic & Acupuncture unique?
That we’re awesome! I just think that we have a fantastic group that works really well together to create a great environment and fantastic health care for our patients. We all have the same vision in helping our community and providing the best care we possibly can. I think that we’re unique in that we offer more services, and we try to stay on top of new developments in health care.
“All of us midwives over at the Family Birth and Wellness Center constantly refer our pregnant clients and their new babies to Loehr Chiropractic for care! We love knowing that they are in excellent hands with lots of maternity and pediatric training when they go to see Dr. Loehr or LaBrie! And their skilled chiropractic care made my own pregnancy aches and pains SO much better! I can’t recommend them highly enough! There is no one else in Springfield with their expertise in these areas!” Mary Walsh—Facebook review: October 29, 2014
