Dr. V graduated from Troy Area High School in 2013. There she was an active participant in local sports playing soccer, basketball, and running track. After graduation she pursued a pre-med degree at Misericordia University before realizing her heart didn't lie in medicine, but in something else that she didn't quite know just yet. She transferred to King's College where she received her Bachelors in Exercise Physiology and fell in love with Chiropractic in the meantime. Through chiropractic, Dr. Vanessa realized the power of the human body and its ability to self heal when given the opportunity. She pursued her Doctorate in Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida where she graduated in March of 2021.
Dr. V utilizes techniques such as Diversified, Gonstead, Activator and Thompson. She has completed the Webster Certification to treat pregnant moms and is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
Dr. Vanessa is trained and certified in a specific technique designed for pregnant women, called the Webster Technique. The goal of this technique is to improve mom’s nervous system function, balance the bones, muscles and ligaments of the pelvis which in turn can help keep mom and baby comfortable throughout pregnancy. Side effects may include less back pain, easier movement, and more comfort during pregnancy. Specific chiropractic care may also optimize baby’s positioning closer to birth, allowing for an easier, smoother birth experience.
Frequently asked questions
Can I get adjusted once and feel better?
Short answer, yes. Long answer, no. A lot of people feel relief after one chiropractic adjustment. But the lasting effects of chiropractic come from continuous care. Your chiropractor will use their expertise to design a careplan right for you.
Do you take my insurance?
We are able to provide necessary paperwork to submit to insurance for reimbursement but we do not bill directly. This office does NOT accept Medicare or Medicare beneficiaries (in short, we cannot see patients over the age of 65).

Do you "crack" ?
There are many different chiropractic techniques. Some involve a "cavitation" which is a release of gas within the joint during an adjustment. Dr. Vanessa utilizes techniques that produce these, and also ones that don't. If you have any concerns regarding an adjustment, communicate these with Dr. V.
What can chiropractic do for my pregnancy?
Chiropractic can be extremely beneficial for pregnant women. Utilizing a special technique called Webster, Dr.
Vanessa will do an assessment of the pelvis and deliver a very gentle and specific adjustment balancing the pelvis and restoring proper biomechanics. This allows optimal room in the uterus for baby to achieve a head down position, and keep mom comfortable throughout pregnancy. Dr. Vanessa has received additional certification through the ICPA to perform this technique .
I always feel welcomed and at home at Meraki Wellness. Dr. V. is very knowledgeable and does an excellent job listening to my concerns each and every time I see her. I leave feeling better than when I got there and have noticed a major difference since going regularly. I definitely recommend trying it out!
I started seeing Dr. V in my third trimester and it’s been a total game changer. I don’t even feel 36 weeks pregnant and I’m not in the same pain I was with my first pregnancy. Dr. V is amazing with children. My 18 month old loves going to see her and it doesn’t take him long to liven up once we’re there.
I had never been to the chiropractor before Dr. V, but watching her journey and seeing everything she stands behind there’s no one else I trust more
Dr. V is wonderful! She is amazing with kids! She has helped me fix my neck and shoulders along with helping my 11 month old son stay happy and healthy! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
