I'm Now a Published Author!

blog book wed before promo

I’m a published author! That’s right. Last year I was invited to write a chapter in a book called Overcoming Mediocrity. It’s a book filled with stories of incredible women. I am honored to be a part of this publication and excited to share it with you.

Overcoming Mediocrity is a unique collection of stories from influential women who have overcome great odds to create their own lives of significance. These stories are aimed to inspire and encourage women to realize their true potential.

I share the story of my family’s struggle with insulin issues and how it surprisingly led me to find my passion in life. Here is a little excerpt from my story…

“Growing up my grandpa was one of my favorite people. He was quite the jokester and was always trying to pull a fast one on me. My family went to his house on weekends, and he always made me feel like the most special girl in the world (other than my sister who I’d like to think was a close second). 

One evening, as we were preparing dinner my grandfather started acting funny. He was pale and seemed shaky. His words were slurred and didn’t seem to make sense. I didn’t know why my grandpa, who was always so strong, was acting so strange. It was scary!

My grandma ran over to the refrigerator, grabbed the orange juice, and poured him a cup. A few minutes later, grandpa was back to his normal self. “What happened?” I asked. I knew my grandpa was a type one diabetic, but I had never known what that meant.”

This experience started a chain of experiences through which the universe led me to discover my passion. 

We all want to live a fulfilling life, and the first step is finding out what drives you. Once you know what makes you come alive, you can truly start pursuing your dreams. Let our stories inspire you to find your passion and live your best life!

Happy Thanksgiving

blog happy thanksgiving 2021We at DuPage Family Wellness would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving week! 

Whether you will be spending time with loved ones or enjoying tasty food by yourself, try to draw the focus back to gratitude! It doesn't mean that you can't grieve the hard parts of this holiday, but it does mean you try to find some things to be grateful for.

Embracing gratitude is a lovely thing, and all the better to do it on this special day when we are encouraged to pause and reflect on all we have.

There are so many benefits to developing a gratitude practice that I wanted to share our gratitude blogs with you once more.

I think you'll be surprised at how much we have to be grateful for even in these crazy times!

Celebrating 10 Years

10 year anniversaryIt's hard to believe that I opened the office ten years ago!

A lot has changed since then. When I started as a chiropractor, I was single with no kids. Now I am married with three precious little girls. But the one thing that has not changed is my desire to lead people on their journey to health.

As my patients, you inspire me to learn more each day. It is such an honor to work with people that value their health and want to live the best life possible.

Thank you for being on this journey with me and entrusting me with your chiropractic care, soft tissue work (ART), and listening to all of my thoughts on eating real food, moving your body, destressing, and getting enough sleep! I love seeing everyone on their journey to becoming the happiest and healthiest self! 

Cheers to 10 years!  

Dr. Jamie

P.S. If you have a story, testimonial, or memory from working together sometime in the last 10 years, it would be wonderful to hear! Feel free to respond to this email, I'd love to hear from you!
