Kristen Mitteness graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University with a docorate in chiropractic. She was then convinced to move to Winnipeg which is not much different, yet stil completely different from the small farming community in west central Minnesota where she grew up (Morris, MN).
Her dad is a chiropractor and her mom runs his business. Her parents have always taken a different approach to healthcare, which she didn't see as "unconventional" at the time and is probably the reason she is so interested in health and wellness. Her first chiropractic adjustment came at the ripe age of two days old.
She earned an AA degree in liberal education and a coaching certificate from Bemidji State University while she competed in NCAA Division II Track and Field and focused on pre-requisites for chiropractic school.
While waiting for approval to practice chiropractic in Canada, she earned her CrossFit Coaching certificate (she is now a Level II instructor) and Yoga Sculpt certification. While she is not at Lifemark, she teaches anatomy at Robertson College and coaches CrossFit and Undefeated Crossfit.
She loves all things wellness, which is why she focuses on chiropractic, exercise, and nutrition. She truly believes that overall health begins with the small choices we make every day.
