OFFICE MANAGER

Pamela, also known as Pam, joined the Complete Chiropractic Sports & Wellness team in September 2020. She is very outgoing and loves to serve and take care of others, which is why she loves her job. Her first introduction to chiropractic care followed a car accident that left her in pain as a teenager. Following treatment, she felt so much relief she has been a faithful chiropractic patient ever since. Pam is fluent in Spanish and a Mexican native. Her skills in language have made it possible to ensure our Spanish speaking patients feel more comfortable and have their needs better understood.
