I love my job as a Doctor of Chiropractic. I've been doing it for over 20 years now. I get to help people of all ages to feel better and to increase their proper function of their Nervous System. It is such a reward to hear the positive feedback from patients that what I do for them makes a difference.
The opportunity came to us to buy the Sugarland Chiropractic Centre while we were still living and working in St Louis Missouri, USA.
My husband, Steve, is an Australian and thought it was time to move back to Australia so we bought it, and moved here in late January 2001.
We moved our family of 5 all here. Our kids have grown and left Bundaberg after two sons finishing year 12, and our daughter graduating from CQU with a Bachelor of Primary Education degree here. The closeness of the ocean in Bundaberg helped seal the deal of its location.
Steve and I often go fishing out in the ocean and I love landing those big fish just as much as he does. To date, a 20 Kg Spanish Mackerel is my biggest fish landed by me. My patients love our fish pictures on our walls and often wish us good luck for a Saturday fishing trip if it's coming up.
Arlene, CA - Chiropractic Assistant
I am married with two adult children and fortunate enough to have two granddaughters.
I have been employed in my current position since July 2013, and enjoy it immensely.
Being a more mature team member, I believe I not only have a very high work ethic, but also an understanding and empathy towards patients of all ages.
Also, growing up and being educated in the local area gives me a clearer understanding of issues that may affect patients.
I really enjoy the interaction with the patients and the flexibility of our office roster system allows me the freedom to pursue personal commitments. Away from the office, my interests include reading, gardening, and travel.
Long term goals for me include more travel within Australia and overseas.
Sam, CA Chiropractic Assistant
I've been working at Sugarland Chiropractic Centre since the beginning of 2018. I've been a patient of Dr. Debbie's for a number of years and have enjoyed coming.
I love the flexibility of hours and being able to come to work interacting with patients. In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my husband and family being outdoors, camping, and fishing.
Katie, CA Chiropractic Assistant
I am a mother to one beautiful baby boy, so the flexibility of our office roster system allows me the opportunity to spend as much quality time with my son as possible.
Beginning my employment in November 2019, I am thoroughly enjoying being part of the team and interacting with our patients.
Out of the office, I love spending time with my family, cooking and spending time outdoors.
Narelle, CA Chiropractic Assistant
Starting in August 2019, after many, many, years of working in the retail/hospitality sector. I am very much enjoying the change of scenery and the challenges of learning a new role, after having been a patient at the practice for a long time with all my family.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. We love going away to watch NRL and Netball games. I also love to read and enjoy sewing and cooking.
