Jeannie Heath, Office Manager
As a child, I recall turning down my mom’s offer for medication more often than not. Somehow, even then, I knew that my body didn’t need drugs for normal childhood sicknesses. But my family had a strong belief in the power of medicine, so as I became an adult, I began to rely more on medicine in general. I began to get sinus headaches as a teenager, and mom always had a cabinet full of medication that I could choose from. So I found myself reaching for drugs every time I got a headache. Before I met my husband, I was getting sinus headaches 3-4 times per week, and taking aspirin every time! It took me 3 months of dating him before I realized that I wasn’t taking any medication. I hadn’t had a headache in 3 months! Becoming a part of the chiropractic community has been like coming back to a long lost belief system. It is something I can believe in and stand behind with all my heart.
Jeannie Heath was born in Grand Rapids, MI but lived most of her in Kalamazoo. She earned her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences from Western Michigan University and her Master’s in Business Administration also from WMU. She met Dr. Heath in 1999 and has worked with him at Chiropractic First ever since! In her free time she enjoys spending as much time as she can with her family, traveling, dancing, and curling up with a good book.
Samary Pereyra-Giron, Chiropractic Assistant
No one likes an unhappy digestive system, especially my 8 month old daughter MaLannah. She has struggled with constipation and after only three adjustments; her digestive system is healthier and working more efficiently. With that being said happy baby, happy mama! Being part of the practice member’s journey to living a happy and healthier life is not only a great and fun experience, but it is also rewarding. I am excited to start my own journey to living a happier and healthier life with my new chiropractic family!
Samary was born in the Dominican Republic. Her family moved to New York City but then decided to explore life in Michigan. She grew up in Grand Rapids, MI where she received her CNA and attends college. Becoming a part of our team has given her a better view about what it means to be healthy and that is having 100% body function. She enjoys spending time with her not so constipated daughter and close friends.
Christine Cronk, Massage Therapist
I am very excited to be working with the Chiropractic First family. As a child, my mother would bring me and my siblings to this very clinic to get adjustments from Dr. Meyer. I loved the atmosphere then, and it’s still the same today. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), and know the importance of keeping the body in healthy working order with regular adjustments and massage. I recently graduated from Everest Institute in February 2014, but Jeannie says it seems like I’ve been doing massage forever! It is very exciting to be able to put the things I have learned into action and begin helping others feel their best!
Christine was born and grew up in Grand Rapids. She loves being a mother and grandmother. Before changing careers and becoming a massage therapist, Christine worked at a bakery. She absolutely loves to make people feel better through massage and has had a lifelong interest in reflexology.
