Chiropractor – Jenny Askwith
I have always been encouraged to keep fit and healthy. After sustaining a few injuries I was introduced to Chiropractic care which has kept me on the straight and narrow ever since. I believe in keeping myself at a point of wellness so I can continue to perform at my peak and my Chiropractic journey has helped to facilitate this.
I am the second born of three children and I was born and raised in Perth. I completed my degree at Murdoch University and moved to Mandurah to work shortly after. During my time at university, I participated in the Hands On India program to deliver healthcare services to impoverished areas in India and I also participated in program to deliver Chiropractic services in the north west of Western Australia. These experiences have given me a rich understanding of healthcare which I value and consider when working today. In practice I enjoy treating families, regardless of age and enjoy watching them achieve their health goals. Whether it be performing optimally at their desk job or getting that little bit more out of a dance concert!
In my spare time I enjoy cooking with my partner to explore new tastes, walking my dog 'Humphrey' along the beach and training everyday to keep myself fit.
Chiropractor - Melissa Morgan
From a young age I knew I wanted to be a Chiropractor, after experiencing Chiropractic care when I was 10 years old, which helped me thrive in competitive swimming and hockey. Over the years I came to understand that Chiropractic care plays an important role in allowing our bodies to function optimally in our everyday lives, not just after injury or leading up to game day.
I graduated from Murdoch University with a degree in Chiropractic Science and Sports Science, with a keen interest in helping people achieve their best level of health and wellness. During my time at MU I was involved with Hands On India and had the opportunity to travel to the remote communities in India's north-east to provide care to the rock breakers and tea pickers who often suffer without any help. The journey astonished me and served to further my desire to help people live better lives.
Outside of the practice I love camping, hiking, kayaking and more. I love getting out in nature. I enjoy time with friends, new experiences, travel and trying different foods, but sometimes I enjoy sitting back with a good book.

I am responsible for the daily running and processes of our clinic.
Health and wellbeing are very important factors in my life and I like to share these with others as I can. I have studied and practiced Reflexology and Clinical Aromatherapy.
I love the outdoors and sitting with nature at every opportunity. My other interests include travelling and trying new things.
Chiropractic Assistant – Salilyn Smoker
Hi my name is Sally, after working in Medical Administration in a variety of roles over many years in Perth, we decided to have a sea change and moved to Mandurah over a decade ago. Now that my three children have all left home I’m loving being able to do all the things that bring me joy, like art, dancing, boating, fishing, swimming and spending time with family and friends.
I started working at Pinjarra Chiropractic not long after we settled in Mandurah, being able to work in such a fun, friendly and caring atmosphere with an amazing professional team has been incredibly rewarding. I get to see the wonderful positive outcomes that our team provides on a daily basis.
Chiropractic Assistant – Cindi Herd
Since 2013, I have had the great fortune of working as a Chiropractic Assistant alongside the dedicated and professional team at Pinjarra Chiropractic. We all share a common goal and are passionate about health, wellbeing and community.
I found Chiropractic treatment extremely beneficial not long after I gave birth to my first son in 1995. It has increased the quality of my life tenfold. I find with regular treatments, I am able to maintain a very healthy and active life.
I have a passion for helping people and "paying it forward" where possible.
My motto in life is: "Be the reason someone smiles."
I enjoy delivering Meals on Wheels each month. I also donate blood and plasma for Red Cross. I am a big fan of the old neighbourly tradition of cooking a meal and delivering it to a friend in need. Variety is the spice to life. I like to participate in a lot of different kinds of activities such as hiking, biking, yoga and Pilates, but my favourite past-time would have to be walking my 2 Aussie Shepherds; Sophie and Harper. I love to travel and learn about different cultures too.
It will be my pleasure to meet and assist you. See you in the Clinic!
Chiropractic Assistant - Michelle Gray
I moved to Pinjarra from the country 22 years ago when I married a local Pinjarra boy. After being a regular patient of Brett's for 7 years, I was excited at the opportunity to become one of the Pinjarra Chiropractic team. All the team have made me feel so welcome as have all the wonderful patients. I have worked in the pharmacy industry since the age of 16, only taking a break to raise my 2 beautiful children.
While I loved working in Pharmacy and helping people to get their health on the right track, I have learnt through my own experience that Chiropractic care can really help to prevent and treat a lot of health problems that can arise and that prevention is better than cure.
Outside of work I love to travel, spend time with my family and friends and doing volunteer work.
I look forward to the future and being part of a great dynamic team..
