Owner, Doctor of Chiropractic

I grew up in the small town of Little Falls, located in central Minnesota. I completed my undergraduate studies at St. Cloud State University where I enjoyed being a supervisor at the Recreation Center and being involved in numerous outdoor activities.

After completing my undergraduate degree at SCSU, I attended Northwestern Health Sciences University where I received a Bachelors Degree in Human Biology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic in the fall of 2007. While attending NWHSU I participated in various clubs, most notably I served as the secretary of the Student International Chiropractic Association.

Some of the activities I enjoy are camping, hiking, ice skating, and being with friends and family.

Dr. jenna biegle

Doctor of Chiropractic

I’m from the Twin Cities but currently reside in Somerset, WI with my husband Alec. I went to UW-Stout for my undergraduate and attended Northwestern Health Sciences University for my doctorate. For fun I love to read, go fishing, play volleyball, and spend my time with my friends and family. My goal is help others reach their full health potential and I believe Chiropractic is the key in reaching those health goals. I love what I do and I love to share the word of Chiropractic with others. I look forward to working with Dr. Nichole and the staff here at Family First Chiropractic to help everyone reach their highest potential!

Dr. RAE BEAVER

Doctor of Chiropractic

I grew up on a farm in the small town of Rolette, ND. After finishing high school, I attended Valley City State University in North Dakota and Bethel University in St Paul while playing college basketball. After my undergraduate studies, I continued my education at Northwestern Health Sciences University, where I recently received my Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2021.

I was initially introduced to chiropractic after receiving treatment for a chronic sports injury. This sparked an interest, and after learning more about the benefits of chiropractic care, I knew that this was something I wanted to dedicate my career to.

I am extremely passionate about holistic health, and I value educating patients about positive lifestyle choices. I treat the body as a whole, with the understanding that each system affects the others. I believe that education and curiosity are some of the most valuable things in life. I enjoy treating a wide variety of people—young and old. It is a privilege for me to be a part of anyone’s health and wellness journey.

When I am not treating patients, I love to be with my family and friends. I also spend time watching and playing just about any sport, cooking, and being outdoors.

annie wojtowicz

Chiropractic Assistant

I grew up and reside in Andover, MN with my boyfriend, Eddie, and our two pugs, Rallo and Rosie. I am completely obsessed with my dogs. In my free time, I like to spend time outside, whether that is four-wheeling, swimming, or watching my puppies run and play. I enjoy hearing everyone‘s jokes and the laughs that come with them. As part of the front desk team at Family First Chiropractic, I like to joke that I am the head of the sticker department for the kids and a professional baby holder! I’m so happy to be working with this amazing team and our amazing patients!

Tina

My background is in Nursing; however, for the last 12 years I have done a variety of jobs from ministry to delivering groceries while watching my boys grow.
I'm from West Virginia and married my high school sweet heart Skip. We live in Ham Lake with our two boys Lucas (16), Sam (15) and our Labradoodle Kenosha.
When I'm not working you'll find me watching soccer. I love playing any game, spending time with family and walks with friends.
