My name is Yisi, pronounced GC, and I embarked on my journey as a Chiropractic Assistant due to my deep desire to make a positive impact on people’s lives through the realm of healthcare. I believe that by working in a chiropractic office, I can contribute to the overall well-being of my community and maximize my own personal health through education, and surrounding myself with people who genuinely care about their own personal health and maximizing the natural approach to taking care of themselves.
