I’ve been fascinated by the human body and holistic health for as long as I can remember. Then at age 12, I fell in love with birth- so being a holistic family chiropractor and helping families develop well from the start, is truly the job of my dreams!

Holistic chiropractor and coach for families who want to feel empowered from preconception, through pregnancy, into motherhood / infancy and beyond

hi friend, i'm dr. sara

I’m a lover of books, learning, and all things natural. I’m a homebody who loves nature and adventure, skiing’s in my blood, farmers markets fuel my soul, and I don’t think that there’s much a warm cup of tea can’t help soothe.

At the age of 9, after suffering traumas from falling off my horse, jumping on my bed, and being dropped from a teeter totter (resulting in a spinal compression fracture), as well as, years of migraines and nocturnal seizures which left me severely ill and scared to sleep, I was introduced to chiropractic.

we all have a story - here's mine

As a holistic family chiropractor and mama bear who’s always loved birth, still loves birth, and specializes in caring for pregnant mamas and babies, It was the events that took place on April 11, 2019 that humbled me to my core.

After a beautiful home birth with our second daughter, Grace, it became apparent that my placenta wasn’t going to detach, and in a traumatic turn of events I was transported, underwent an emergency D&C, and received a blood transfusion.

Long after the physical trauma disappeared, the PTSD remained. The fear of leaving my babies without their mama haunted me daily and kept me up at night. We hadn’t planned to be finished growing our family but I was terrified of what could have or might happen next time.

Refusing to accept "sometimes these things just happen", I made it my mission to find answers to questions that came far too close to costing my life.
 
After a relentless search, I found the Schaefer Protocol, and finally for the first time, answers to my questions. I’m one of the first doctors to be Certified in the Schaefer Protocol and I now work “hand in hand” with Dr. Marcia Schaefer furthering the mission of creating healthy humans and educating on preconception and the truth about fertility.

My holistic in-person practice, Be Well Barn, is located near Vail, Colorado where I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve families in our community from preconception, through pregnancy, into motherhood/infancy, and beyond.

you are
worth it!

let me be clear, mama
