Meet the WNY Spinal Solutions Team

 

Meet April

Chiropractic Assistant and Patient Experience Coordinator

AprilI was attracted to this office because I have always been an advocate for nutrition, health, and wellness. Being part of a culture with similar views on whole body wellbeing has been rewarding.

Recent life events have elevated the importance of taking care of yourself and others. I hope to build lasting relationships with patients while they are on their own wellness journey with us.

When I am not greeting you in the office, you can find me at a local winery as a tasting consultant. I also volunteer my time as a board member for Iroquois Middle School MSA.

I have one daughter, Autumn Rose, who is a competitive dancer, which in turn makes me a “Dance Mom”.

I look forward to getting to know each and every patient while helping to enhance the experience in our office.

Meet Christina

Chiropractic Assistant and Insurance Coordinator

I hold a Certification as a Natural Health Professional from Trinity School of Natural Health. I believe so strongly in chiropractic care and overall wellness!

Prior to my position in this office, I worked for an attorney for over 10 years. I became a very stressed and ill person with no immune system and had a primary doctor who would not listen but prescribed a lot of unnecessary medication. This ultimately led to me on my wellness journey and I began seeing a Naturopath and chiropractor. This changed my life and my lifestyle and continues to motivate me to want to help others.

I am extremely passionate about the well being of others, especially our youth. I am so happy to be part of WNY Spinal Solutions practice because of the care provided to patients and the beautiful relationships that have developed. When I am not at work, I am doing my most fulfilling job of being a mother to my two daughters, Sophia and Gianna.

I look forward to meeting you and to be of help in your wellness journey.

Meet Emily

Emily started working at WNY Spinal Solutions in 2017.

I graduated from New York Institute of Massage in October of 2018 as a massage therapist. Beginning in the early spring of 2019, my role as a massage therapist is working synergistically with Dr. Griffin’s chiropractic treatments to help patients receive optimal care.

I have always believed in taking care of my physical, mental, and emotional well-being and hope to help others do the same through the promotion of the benefits of massage therapy and chiropractic. The quote I feel best describes this is:

“To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep
our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha

Meet Esther

I love to help people. My compassion allows me to connect to people as I strive to facilitate growth and healing. I am always smiling and love to spread that to others. I am honored to be part of this passionate team and look forward to helping with every patient’s wellness journey.

With a fierce love of the outdoors, I spend most of my free time exploring with my family. We love to hike, kayak, canoe, camp and play outside. Everyday is an adventure.

Marne has been working with our office since 2016.

As a former college professor, I have had the opportunity to support the educational growth of my students. My passion is working with people and supporting their growth. Now as the office manager of WNY Spinal Solutions, I feel fortunate to be part of an amazing team who shares that passion and believes in promoting the health and overall wellness of our patients.

Inspired by this wellness setting and my own personal wellness quest, I pursued my Reiki Master and Advanced Crystal Master training and have opened my own energy practice, Transformative Energy Healing.

Please let me know if there’s any way I can support you on your path to wellness.

Meet Mike

Chiropractic Assistant and Patient Education Coordinator

Photo of MikeMike started working in our office as a CA in 2017.

I have been a strength and conditioning coach working in the industry since 2012, focusing on corrective exercise and program design. I am passionate about teaching others the value of exercise and how to complete movements safely and effectively for the best result possible.

I often say that corrective exercise is an important part of an individual’s treatment plan. Once you have managed your symptoms and are no longer experiencing acute pain, the next step is to start activating and strengthening specific muscles to maintain the results from your care.

My Certifications:

  • OPEX Associate Coach
  • Life Coaching
  • Assessment
  • Nutrition
  • Program Design
  • National Academy Of Sports Medicine (NASM)
  • CPT

My favorite inspirational saying is:

“Don’t look for motivation. Find your “Why”, then no excuses will come between you and your goals.”
