About Us

  • Kendra Bergmann,
    DC / Practice Owner

    Dr. Kendra Bergmann, grew up in Wisconsin.  Dr. Bergmann has suffered from migraines since she was 12.  After trying every possible treatment under the sun, she found chiropractic care.  She experienced immense relief and decided she wanted chiropractic to be her profession.  Dr. Bergmann attended undergraduate college at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.  She graduated with a double major in biology and chemistry.  She continued her studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. 

    After graduation, Kendra, Justin (her fiancé) moved to the great state of Michigan for an associate position in Birmingham, MI.  While in Birmingham, She focused on upper cervical care.  Dr. Bergmann then changed her focus to working with children and pregnant women, joined the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, and became certified in the Webster Technique.

  • Stephanie Kelly,
    DC

    Dr. Stephanie Kelly was born and raised in Metro Detroit.  For most of her life, she suffered from debilitating migraines.  After seeing neurologist after neurologist, Dr. Stephanie continued to experience migraines upwards of five times per week, even though she was taking many prescription medications.  The worst part of this, however, was not the migraines, but instead the side effects from the medications.

    After graduating from the University of Michigan, Dr. Stephanie realized she needed to do something different, as conventional medicine was not working.  A coworker suggested she see a chiropractor.  At first, she thought this was crazy, but quickly realized doing the same thing and expecting different results was crazy.  Dr. Stephanie started seeing a chiropractor, who not only helped alleviate her migraines (which ultimately allowed her to stop taking medication), but also changed her health in ways never imagined.  Because of this life-changing experience, Dr. Stephanie felt the need to help people in the same way she had been helped.  She decided to enroll in chiropractic school.              

    After attending Life University in Marietta, Georgia, Dr. Stephanie and her husband, David, decided to settle down in Chicago, where she opened a practice in 2010.  Realizing recently how much she missed her family, Dr. Stephanie and her husband made the tough decision to return to Michigan.  Dr. Stephanie is excited to be a part of Optimal Wellness Family Chiropractic, where she strives to achieve OWFC’s goal of providing the best in chiropractic care for all ages.

    Dr. Stephanie has almost completed her advanced training in Pre-Natal and Pediatric Care. She is Webster Technique Certified through the ICPA. She has experience taking care of all types of patients and enjoys helping patients accomplish their health goals.  When she is not adjusting patients, Dr. Stephanie enjoys spending time with her puppy, Lily, travelling with her husband, cheering for the Michigan Wolverines, and making up for lost time with her family.

Dr. Natalie became fascinated with chiropractic when she found out that this field encompassed everything she loved about medicine. 

    Dr. Natalie earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida in 2017. She graduated Summa Cum Laude, Salutatorian of her class, was a recipient of the Academic Excellence Award, and was nominated for the Clinical Excellence Award.

  • Megan Bauer,
    DC, CACCP

    Dr. Megan Bauer had an eye-opening chiropractic experience when she suffered from debilitating headaches in her early 20s. She had been to a number of different healthcare professionals and was eventually told there was nothing they could do for her. She was referred to a chiropractor in her hometown who educated her on chiropractic and the cause of the headaches. 'Something just made sense about how he explained the cause of the headaches; it was like a light bulb went off'. From there, Dr. Megan knew her passion for wanting to help people should be done so through chiropractic care.
    Dr. Megan grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois but moved to Michigan after graduating from chiropractic school. She attended Southeast Missouri State University for her undergraduate studies in biomedical sciences and continued on to Logan University where she completed another Bachelor of Science and graduated in 2014 with her Doctorate of Chiropractic. While at Logan, she was extensively trained in many chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Logan Basic, Thompson Technique, Sacral-Occipital Technique (SOT), Cox Flexion-Distraction, Activator, and others to help fit the personal needs of each patient. She is also trained in myofascial release, kinesiology taping, and a number of soft tissue techniques.
    Dr. Megan has always had an interest in working with children and through further education, with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) she received her Webster Technique certification and was granted Certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP). She is passionate about chiropractic care and is honored to work with families, children, and babies in a belief that we can change the future health of generations to come. Dr. Megan has previous experience in a prenatal and pregnancy focused office and is thrilled to be a part of the team at Optimal Wellness Family Chiropractic to provide excellent care for patients of all ages to allow for optimal health and function.

    In her free time, you can find Dr. Megan enjoying crafts or do-it-yourself home improvement projects. She also enjoys traveling, the outdoors, and spends her time snowboarding, camping, kayaking, fishing and spending time with her boyfriend Alex and puppy Remi. She also likes to explore new places and things in her new home in Michigan!

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
