Cristina originally was passionate about becoming a Registered Nurse, however a surprise pregnancy changed the course of her life. As her financial situation became more of a priority, she took the first job opportunity she received which was a chiropractic office within the Maximized Living family. Ever since, she has been passionate about learning and teaching the chiropractic principle to others- especially encouraging mothers to take control of not only their health but their babies' health.

Now she has the opportunity to help patients achieve a more well rounded state of health.
Jo’s love for chiropractic began in 2014 while working at an office in Rockford. Her experiences there sparked a deep passion for the innate wisdom of the body and the power the brain has over all of its functions. She was inspired to pursue her certification as a radiological technician, as well as seek further education in therapeutic modalities and weight management. Jo’s mission and passion is to inspire as many people as she can reach and share the knowledge she was given, has experienced and believes in.
