I'm a Fat Chiropractor in Portland, Oregon specializing in helping folks in larger bodies reduce pain and move more comfortably.

I have personally experienced living in a large body, so I understand anti-fat bias from both the patient's and provider's perspective.

A little more about me...

I am a Chiropractor

I knew I was going to be a chiropractor when I was 14 years old. I never saw doctors who were fat so I assumed I had to be thin for people to take me seriously. I was convinced my patients would not listen to me if I were fat.. I was wrong.

Intuitive Eater

In 2018, I gave up dieting and spent so much time learning about intuitive eating and ways to overcome my orthorexia and restrictive eating. I learned about intuitive eating and my body normalized, meaning I gained weight and that's ok


I am committed to the Health At Every Size® principles. This is an alternative to the weight-centered approach to treating patients of all sizes. It is also a movement working to promote size acceptance, to end weight discrimination and stigma, and to lessen the cultural obsession with weight loss and thinness.

Joyful Mover

I was tired of not seeing my body type represented in the chiropractic and physical therapy world, so I’m creating a space to show you body movements that can help heal injuries and make you feel more comfortable. I will give you modifications for fat people all shown on a body that looks like yours

*Tip: even easier start, try using a 36-inch roller against a wall instead of the floor.
