Meet Dr. laurie....


Dr. Laurie is originally from Madison, WI. She fell in love with Decorah and NE Iowa while on a campus visit to Luther College. After being on campus for less than a minute, Dr. Laurie decided that this was her home.  After attending Luther as a Theatre & Dance major and Psychology minor, she started working for a chiropractor in Waunakee, WI.  This is when she developed the desire to pursue a career as a chiropractor.

In her free-time, Laurie enjoys cooking, running, swimming, and being outside.
