The Thrive Team
Dr. Bryon graduated with highest honours and the distinction of class Salutatorian from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California. Initially, he was working towards a masters in psychology at the University of Manitoba, with plans of finishing a PhD. After meeting Chantelle at the U of M, and learning more about Chiropractic and its impact to health and the nerve system, he made an immediate shift in education. When Dr. Bryon is not caring for his patients, he enjoys spending time with his two daughters and fishing and camping in western Ontario.
Dr. Chantelle graduated with highest honours from Life Chiropractic College West in California, where she earned the great distinction of class Valedictorian. Prior to her move to California, Dr. Doerksen obtained a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from the University of Manitoba. After graduation, she and Dr. Bryon returned home to Manitoba and were married. Together, they created and opened the doors to Thrive. When away from the office, she enjoys cooking, sewing, and new adventures with Bryon and their two girls.
Both Dr.’s Bryon and Chantelle have travelled to Central America with the El Salvador Outreach Program of Life Chiropractic College West. There, they were able to provide chiropractic care to hundreds of people and educate them about the benefits of chiropractic. This opportunity allowed them to help people of all ages with a variety of health concerns.
