Dr. nichole rakow

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!

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!

Theresa Tryman

Certified Massage Therapist

I graduated from Globe College/MSB from the Massage Therapy program in 2010. Since then I have attended Continuing Education classes at the Aveda Institute and The Cross Country Institute. I have been trained and certified in Reiki, Cupping, Bamboo facial massage and Ashiatsu.

I worked as an employee for various companies up until 2015 when I started my own company Essential Massage. I absolutely love what I do! Watching clients realize what Massage can do for their entire well-being is my joy. Some of my interests outside of massage are trying new restaurants with family and friends, cooking, traveling, games, and outdoor adventures with my husband.
