Meet the Front Office Team

  • Ashle​y

     Ashley joined our office as an Administrative Assistant in July of 2017. Ashley’s favorite part about working at Kik Chiropractic has been creating relationships with both her co-workers and our patients.

    Prior to joining our team, Ashley took part in her greatest passion: running! While attending Trinity Christian College, Ashley ran for their track and cross country team until she graduated in May of 2017 with a degree in Exercise Science. This running career is what she is most proud of, including when she became a National Champion in the 800m race. During her free-time, she continues to run and coaches part-time at her former high school. Ashley is happiest when she is spending time with family and friends, playing with dogs and/or traveling.

    One big item on Ashley’s bucket list is to attend the Olympics, either as a competing runner or as a spectator.

    Here are a few of her favorite things!

  • Brian

    Brian is a certified medical assistant who joined Kik Chiropractic July of 2017 as a Chiropractic Assistant. When asked what he likes best about working here, he said, “I enjoy speaking with people and helping patients explain their symptoms and in return, teaching them about health and discussing healthy lifestyle choices.” Ultimately Brian is happiest when those he cares about are happy. He said, “When people I care about hurt, I share in that hurt. This includes all of our patients as well”.

    Of all of the moments to look back on, Brian has three highlights of his life. He is grateful for meeting and marrying his wife, having his two awesome children, a daughter and son, and for the opportunity to work with troubled youth in the Dominican Republic for 4 years before settling down with his family in Michigan and to finish out his Army contract. Brian joined the Army in 2008 and is still serving in the Army Reserve.

  • Ivana

     Ivana joined our office as an Administrative Assistant in September of 2016. What she appreciates most about her position at Kik Chiropractic is the patient interaction and the relationships she has with her co-workers.

    When Ivana is not at work, she is happiest spending time with her family, friends, and boyfriend but absolutely loves using her free time to bake! When asked what she is proudest of, Ivana answered, “the person she is today because of accomplishments, as well as obstacles, that have made me who I am.”

    People would be surprised to know that she was born in Europe and lived there for two and a half years before moving to the states. Ivana has since returned but she hopes to visit Paris someday and go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
