DR. JESS | Doctor of Chiropractic

Our in-house chiropractor is different from your typical doctor. As an ex-college soccer player, she knows what it means to be an athlete (and to sustain injuries). CrossFit became an outlet for Dr. Jess in 2018 after she finished playing soccer. With her specialization in sports rehabilitation, she fits right in! Jess has a huge sweet tooth, a love-hate relationship with cardio, and would spend every single day at the beach if she could. We are so excited to have her!
