Chiropractor Bloomington IL Jessica Bruin Meet The Team

Chiropractor & Clinic Director

Jessica Bruin D.C.

Dr. Jess Bruin is a second-generation chiropractor. Being raised in the practice she has been exposed to and then treated a wide variety of patients and conditions from babies to the elderly.

She's resolved everything from headaches to heartburn, digestion to fatigue, earaches to breech babies, and nearly everything in between. She adapts both her technique and the amount of force used per the individual patient's needs (i.e. newborn baby versus heavyweight boxer).

Dr. Jess has always had a passion for travel and exploring new cultures, as such she has traveled the world working as a chiropractor. Amongst her highlights are Bermuda, working in a pediatric and sports injury practice within a multidisciplinary group, and the Netherlands, where she met her husband Tom.

Dr. Jess looks forward to sharing her experiences gained in working with many other doctors and patients from around the world with her local hometown community of Bloomington-Normal.

Dr. Jess has been named 2018 Pantagraph Readers' Choice Best Doctor in Bloomington Normal, and Eastland Chiropractic and Lifestyle Center has been named the Best Chiropractor. This is our sixth year receiving this recognition.

Chiropractor Bloomington IL Elizabeth Skipper

Chiropractor

Elizabeth Skipper D.C.

Dr. Skipper is a chiropractor that has recently moved from Marietta, GA to provide patients with the care that they need. While in Marietta, she treated the athletes at Life University and worked at a personal injury and wellness clinic. She specializes in treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches, numbness and tingling, and much more!

 

Chiropractic has made a huge impact on Dr. Skipper's life. Dr. Skipper competed in cross country and track in high school, and at a collegiate level at Life University. While competing, she experienced low back pain that eventually took her out of competition. During Dr. Skipper's first year at Life University, she sought chiropractic care for the first time. She was amazed by the improvement in her pain and her race performance. "It was after my first few adjustments that I knew I was going to become a chiropractor," Dr. Skipper says. "Since I was a kid, I have always wanted to make a difference in people's lives. My first chiropractic adjustment changed my life, and I want others to experience how powerful chiropractic can be, just like I did." 

Dr. Skipper grew up in Orlando, FL. She is a huge Disney fan and loves going to theme parks whenever she can. If you are a fan of Disney World or Universal Studios, she is the person to talk to! In Dr. Skipper's free time, she likes to run and workout, hike, play disc golf, explore new places and hang out with friends. She is very excited to be a part of Action Wellness.

Chiropractic Bloomington IL Kristy Eggers Meet The Team

Kristy Eggers

I have a very big love for animals! We usually have 10 or more animals in our household, aka the Zoo. I retired as a hairstylist after 20 years, after I discovered the Chiropractic field! Once I saw the amazing results patients and myself get from chiropractic care, I hung up my shears! I have finally begun the health and wellness path I was searching for, for many years. Both with my own health, as well as a wonderful career in this field!

I have been married for over 20 years to my high school sweetheart, Troy, and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Sierra & Chloe. I homeschool Chloe, and we just love it! I love getting to greet our patients and assist in getting your care all lined up, working at our Front Desk area.

Chiropractic Bloomington IL Megan Fike

Community Outreach Assistant

Megan Fike

Before joining the Action Wellness team as the Community Outreach Assistant, I was a patient. Chiropractic care was not something I grew up having access to, but the difference it has made in my adult years has changed my life!

My husband John and I live in Le Roy in a house that belonged to his grandparents. We spent the last year doing a whole indoor house remodel. It was fun to use my creative flare to design a house that felt like us.

We currently have 4 fur babies, 2 dogs (Spencer and JJ), and 2 cats (Gracie and Evie). It's no surprise that I have a house full of 4-legged critters after working in the veterinary/animal field for over 15 years. 

In my spare time, I like to travel, work on my crafting projects and puzzles, participating in game nights, and spending time with friends and family.

Chiropractic Bloomington IL Kathy Wade Meet The Team

Patient Accounts Coordinator

Kathy Wade

Before starting in May of 2022 here at the office handling billing and patient accounts, I worked 12 years as a veterinary assistant and have done pet sitting and grooming as well. My husband, Brad, is a mechanic at Don Owen Tire. We have 2 children, Emma and Austin, who live with us in Towanda.

Emma is a freshman at NCHS, and we have survived the first year of marching band. Austin is in 6th grade at Evan JR high school. He is currently involved in an after-school tech club. Besides being involved in the kids' activities, I enjoy reading, crocheting, and spending time outdoors.
