Chiropractor – Jenny Askwith

Jenny Askwith

I was born and raised in Perth and the second of three children. My parents have always encouraged me to be active and healthy, but with that came a few injuries of which I sought Chiropractic care to help keep me at a point of wellness.

I was educated at Murdoch University and through this came the opportunity to travel and have new experiences within the scope of Chiropractic. I travelled to India in 2009/2010 to a remote community in the north east. We treated within the slum areas of India and also those people who worked as rock breakers to earn a meagre living. This was very insightful and one of the best experiences of my life. I hope to return there in the next couple of years.

In my spare time I love to cook and dine out – I’m always looking for new tastes! I am looking to travel into the wine regions in France and to taste the traditional paella in Spain in the next few years.

Entering this profession has shown me the importance of prevention and wellness and that to maintain real health requires a proactive approach. The course I completed at university focussed on many aspects of the realm of healthcare, including nutrition, rehabilitation, body function, diagnosis, and importantly the chiropractic adjustment. I enjoy furthering my education and have a thirst for knowledge into expanding my diversity as a practitioner. Watching the body change, heal and adapt to a healthy ethos will never cease to amaze me, and I look forward in taking this journey with you.

Chiropractic Assistant – Salilyn Smoker

Sally Smoker

After working in Medical Administration in Perth for a number of years, my husband and I moved to Mandurah along with our youngest son, about 7 years ago.  I enjoyed being able to take advantage of not working for a few months, which enabled me to indulge in some of my favourite pastimes, like gardening, sewing, reading, arts and craft, not to mention spending time with my family and friends.

I started working as a Chiropractic Assistant in Pinjarra about 4 years ago.  I really enjoy the happy, fun and friendly atmosphere at Pinjarra Chiropractic.  Seeing the positive results achieved on a daily basis by our professional team makes my job very rewarding.  Being a mum of 3 and grandmother of 2 I can really relate to parents that bring their children in for treatment.  I only wish I had know how beneficial Chiropractic was when my children were growing up.

Chiropractic Assistant – Cindi Herd

  Hello!  My name is Cindi and I am the newest team member of Pinjarra Chiropractic.  I was born in America but relocated to Australia in 1993 and currently reside in Waroona with my husband and two gorgeous teenage boys.

I am really excited to work in the field of Chiropractic as I have experienced fantastic results from Chiropractic care, especially after becoming a new mum.  It has increased the quality of my life tenfold.  I am eager to learn more and share my knowledge with others so they too can have a more dynamic and healthy lifestyle.

I have worked for years in the travel industry as well as in office support.  I have always been interested in helping people and my community.  I enjoy delivering Meals on Wheels as well as donating plasma to Red Cross once a month.  Variety is an important ingredient in life and my favourite past-times reflect this.  I love yoga, surfing, walking, cycling, hiking, reading, travelling, and learning about different cultures. 

 It will be my pleasure to meet and assist you.  I look forward to being a part of this professional team who share common goals to educate and help their community improve health and wellbeing for a fulfilling life.

Massage Therapist - Felicia McCormack

Hi, my name is Felicia and I have been here at the clinic since July 2015.

 I run my own Fitness and Wellbeing Business called Mack Fitness. Fitness has always been a huge part of my life, growing up I played Netball for my school on the weekends and was heavily involved with interschool sports. I then moved into horse riding and after a few years started competing in local one day events.  I am still an active horse rider and take my horse out whenever I get the chance to. 

 

After working in the FIFO Civil Construction for 3 years I decided it was time to come back and do something I was passionate about. I studied at the Australian Institute of Fitness, receiving both my Master Trainer Certificate and a Diploma in Remedial Massage.

 I love both the Personal Training and Remedial Massage aspects of my business as I believe they go hand in hand, there is no better reward than having a client come to me and through the weeks see them become pain-free, stronger, healthier and happier.  On days that I am not here at the clinic I am running bootcamps out in Dawesville on the beach or training clients in my home gym.
