Skyler Knight, LMT

My name is Skyler and I am the Massage Therapist at Embrace Wellness Chiropractic Center in Keizer, Oregon. I first received my license for massage in 2014 after completing my education with the University of Western States here in Salem where I was born and raised.  After gaining a few years of experience and working with so many different clients and their individual aches and pains, I was eager to put my knowledge to the test to help those with accident and sports-related injuries. I enjoy working with a diverse group of patients, each with their unique needs and paths to recovery.  Massage is a much needed complement to chiropractic care and all forms of complementary medicine. Outside of Massage, I enjoy time with my husband Isaiah watching the Dodgers play, working on pitches out on the baseball field, and exploring our beautiful State of Oregon! We make plenty of trips to the beach and the mountains and even checking out old forgotten ghost towns. I also enjoy watercolor painting, planting succulents, and collecting books for our growing library.

 

Nancy Garcia, Asst. Manager

Hola and Hello! My name is Nancy, I have been a chiropractic assistant since 2013 in Keizer, Oregon.  I have worked with Dr. Doria for three years now.  I am now the assistant manager, making sure the patients are taken cared for from the time they check in and checking out.  I love that I meet many different people here at Embrace Wellness.  My goal is to help them with their care and the process of recovery for their injuries.  I also speak Spanish to further help our patients, and I enjoy being able to do that for our patients.  When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and taking trips with my daughter to the coast, hanging out at the park and going to the Portland Zoo.
