Meet Our Administrative Team


Anna Hicks, Front Desk

I’m Anna! I joined the clinic in summer of 2019, and have been proudly assisting the chiropractors in delivering exemplary care to every patient that comes through the door! I am a Shelton native, with a deep connection and roots in the community and the people I get to meet and connect with from all walks of life through my past work as a home healthcare CNA, down to slinging coffee at the downtown Starbucks. I love the patients we get to treat here, and getting to build so many close rapports and friendships over the years. 

When I am not behind the check- in desk, I enjoy all the lusciousness of our beautiful Pacific Northwest. During the warmer months, I am on/in any body of water I can find or simply stretched out on my lawn with a good scary book. However a little rain doesn’t prevent me from walking in the October changing colors. I am a self-proclaimed cat mother of 2, perfectly content and proud enjoying my loved one’s littles as the fun crazy aunt. I am a movie buff and live music avid, guilty of babbling about my newest series binge or my bucket list of shows to see. I have a passion for missionary work, working with different churches in the area for over 10 trips all over Mexico. The experiences I had there and the people I got to love on changed my worldview and perspectives forever.

I love helping people and getting to witness how chiropractic care and massage therapy can add years of quality to life.  I can be easily distracted by a bad joke, or a good story…find out!


Jessica Smith, Front Desk

I'm Jessica, a Texan who traded the sandy shores of Hawaii for the lush landscapes of Washington in December 2021. I'm not a lone wanderer; I've embarked on this journey with my high school sweetheart, a Navy sailor, and together, we're eagerly awaiting the arrival of our first child in December 2023.

My academic background is a blend of creativity and healing. With a focus on photography and anatomy, my studies honed in on massage and physical therapies.

For over five years, I've been a steadfast companion in a chiropractic clinic, maneuvering through various roles with a commitment to the well-being of others. I find beauty in both the artistry of visual storytelling and the complexity of our physical selves.

When I'm not immersed in the world of healthcare, you'll find me at farmers markets, hiking with my loyal canine companion, or thrift shopping.


Gracyn Nester, Front Desk

I’m Gracyn! A 16 year old girl living her best busy life! 

I Joined the office in November of 2022, and have loved every minute of working here. Whether it’s getting numerous friendly smiles from patients throughout the day, or taking an interesting phone call, it all adds to the character of our lovely office. 

I’m currently enrolled in the Running Start program through Olympic College and I am a Junior in Highschool. I hold another job over at Mason County Christian School, and adore the kiddos I get to be around all day. Loving people is my strong suit, and you’ll always find me spreading smiles and kindness any opportunity I get. 

When I'm not doing schoolwork or working (which isn’t too often). I enjoy spending time with my loved ones and soaking up all the sunshine that Washington has to offer. I’m a leader at my youth group, and always do my best to spread the love of Jesus to those around me. I’ve worked as a house cleaner, babysitter, dog walker, and restaurant hostess; always keeping my life as interesting as possible. 

Working at this office with these wonderful people has been such an amazing and fun time, and I love meeting all the new and returning patients who walk through our front door!


Jessica Howard, Billing Specialist

I joined the back office in September 2022 as a Biller. You will also hear me catching some of our incoming calls or covering at the front desk on occasion. When I’m not in the office, I am a Bookkeeper for a few businesses in town. I’ve also been a single foster mom since 2017 and have had several littles come through my doors. I’m the oldest of 10, have over 30 nieces and nephews, and grew up in Shelton. I enjoy following my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, spending time with family and friends, crafting, reading, finances, and living debt free.

Madison Kinnear, Office Manager

Hey everyone! I have been blessed to have a mother who introduced me to chiropractic care from birth, so I have been around this amazing preventative health care for quite some time. Being a multi-sport athlete beginning at age 4 to then becoming a collegiate athlete for four years, I can 100% attribute my athletic longevity to chiropractic care and massage. My angel of a mother drove me to and from my college every week for four years between the months of January to April in order for me to get adjusted and receive a deep tissue massage to help manage the pain of being a softball pitcher. Go figure I would find my match who also had his life changed by chiropractic care and decided to make a career out of it!

I joined this wonderful team of office staff in July of 2023 and have enjoyed being in the service industry. While I am not in the office, I also run a small bookkeeping business. As Jesus calls us all to be servant leaders, I take that on wholeheartedly and am eager to carry that same mindset to this office and the Shelton community. We are here to help you navigate this thing called ‘living holistically’ and show you what it takes to have an ‘overall well-being’.
