Dr Stacey photo

Dr. Stacey Rosenberg

I was born in Vernon, BC and grew up in the Salmon Arm/Shuswap area. I knew I wanted to work in health care, but not with prescription drugs or surgery. I valued my holistic upbringing. I can remember going on walks with my mum when I was younger and her showing me which herbs were for what. I also had a great uncle who was a chiropractor. I’ve always enjoyed helping people and I wanted to help them in a natural way. It was in college that I felt I could best do this by becoming a chiropractor.
