Clinic Manager & X-Ray Tech

Hi, My name is Tonya and I have been at Swendsen Chiropractic Clinic for over 8 years. Gradually my role has grown and now I help manage the clinic. My job here is to help the doctors run a smooth and efficient office so we can provide the best service possible to our patients. We have a fantastic fun team and helping people get better is really rewarding. I really like working here as all the staff at the clinic are so easy to get along with and there’s a great family friendly atmosphere. The thing I like most about working here, however, is meeting all our patients, getting to know them and helping them feel better. I like working for a clinic that listens to their patients. My passions includes spending time with my husband and daughters, taking road trips, and camping at our Ocean property.
