Trista - Chiropractic Assistant

Having grown up as a military child and later embracing the life of a military spouse for 15 years, I've been blessed with the experiences of diverse cultures, places, and people. From the enchanting coasts of Spain to the vibrant vibes of Hawaii, every place has left an indelible mark on me.

Before stepping into the realm of chiropractic care, my heart was with teaching. I spent seven rewarding years shaping young minds as a preschool teacher. However, my innate passion for health and fitness pulled me into a different direction. I trained ardently, securing my personal training certification, and soon found myself as a strength trainer for the BJ Penn UFC Gym. Here, my fascination with the recovery aspect of fitness grew. I added cupping and IASTM (Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) to my repertoire. And recently, in May 2023, I donned the hat of a Licensed Massage Therapist.


Outside the confines of work, you'll often find me immersed in the world of weightlifting. Powerlifting has become a rewarding journey for me, challenging and strengthening me both physically and mentally. My family and I also share a mutual love for travel. Europe, with its myriad cultures and landscapes, remains our favorite destination. We've been lucky to explore the streets of Portugal, Paris, Gibraltar, and various cities in Spain.


At Planet Wellness, it's not just about healthcare; it's about genuine care. The warmth and welcoming nature of our office is unparalleled, and I genuinely believe it's what sets us apart. To us, every patient is family, and our commitment goes beyond just health; we truly care about you as an individual. Our passion is evident, and I hope it resonates with every individual who steps into our haven. I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your wellness journey!

Away from the clinic, my heart belongs to my four incredible children – three girls and one boy – who not only light up my world but also continually inspire my "WHY." Our home is filled with love and a little bit of chaos, thanks to our seven furry companions: a dog, three cats, and three bunnies.

Hello! I'm Trista, and I'm thrilled to be your Chiropractic Assistant at Planet Wellness. With over a year under my belt in this amazing establishment, I take pride in handling new and current patient exams, x-rays, neurology exams, and advanced therapies. I cherish every moment I get to spend with the Planet Wellness team, helping our patients on their health journeys.
