Dr. Frances M. Hollembaek
Dr. Fran grew up in southeastern Massachusetts about 40 miles south of Boston. There she developed a love for the outdoors, culture and art, traveling, and athletics. She earned an academic and athletic scholarship to Mercyhurst College, a small liberal arts institution, where she completed her undergraduate studies in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing. It was not until her early twenties did she discover the amazing benefits of chiropractic care.
While considered in “good health” by most standards, it was about her sixth week of treatment when she noticed all of her recurrent sinus and digestive issues resolved. Soon after, her stress and anxiety levels dropped enabling a deeper, more rejuvenating sleep and boundless energy. She felt extraordinary, and she knew that chiropractic was responsible for the all-around positive change. After making this correlation, she left her current career to pursue her doctorate in Chiropractic and has been part of this non-invasive healing art since.
