The Devine Chiropractic Team in Portland
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I moved to Portland in December 2016 with a dream of exploring the trees, good eats, and meeting some friendly new folks.
Before packing up and making the drive up the coast, I helped manage a successful gourmet BBQ Food Truck and restaurant in Downtown LA. Food has always been such a passion of mine. It brings people together, it fuels the body, feeds the soul, and I knew that Oregon would have so much to offer in that department. I graduated with a BA in Fashion Merchandising from California State University of Los Angeles, and although it was not my passion to pursue a job in that industry, I was able to learn a lot about myself and what I wanted to do with my life; anything that let me put a smile on someone's face:)
For as long as I can remember, I've had major issues with my posture and pain in my lower back. I started getting chiropractic adjustments last year when I was unable to walk for almost a week. Even before that, I was unable to move certain ways; afraid that I would become immobile and pull something by making the wrong move. It restricted so many things for me over the past few years and became quite the emotional subject as I grew older and was unable to figure out the core of the problem.
Working at Devine Chiropractic has been a blessing. Not only was I adopted into this amazing and supportive work family, but I know that receiving the care and adjustments from Dr. Devine will lead me to a positive and successful change to my body. I am on the right track to wellness and healing and I could not be more thankful to be here!
Yen-Ling Pan | LMT
Growing up, I lived in Taiwan, Ecuador, and the Netherlands. These places inspired me to have a multicultural approach to health. I began my career as a medical doctor (M.D.) in Ecuador but it was not until I discovered the healing power of massage that I found my true calling. I graduated from East West College in Portland, Oregon. The bulk of my massages focus on pain relief and therapeutic massage. I favor techniques with the profound relaxation of Swedish massage, and I tailor every massage session to help my clients achieve their goals such as pain reduction, stress relief, and relaxation.
Working with Dr. Devine and the team at Devine Chiropractic, we focus on promoting wellness care to our clients and their family members. You let us know what you need to achieve, and we will be with you every step of the way.
Sajara | Chiropratic Assistant
I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida but my family moved to Portland, OR in 1991 so Portland is what I consider home. Growing up I was involved in various sports including soccer, track and field, cross country running, horseback riding, and cross training programs. Additionally, I participated in the many outdoor activities living in the Pacific Northwest provides. I continue to maintain an active lifestyle and enjoy family time, cooking/baking, travel, language, reading, film, music and social events.
In 2012 I graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.A. in Sociology focusing on politics & social movements and international systems with a minor in French. Post college I lived and worked abroad for a year as an Au Pair in France before moving back to Portland. From early 2013-mid 2015 I worked as a French immersion teacher at a local preschool. I’m a former patient of Dr. Devine’s and welcomed the opportunity to join the team at Devine Chiropractic in September of 2015.
I believe in practicing a healthy lifestyle through diet, exercise, and general wellness. I feel that the philosophies shared at Devine Chiropractic promote this outlook and I’m excited to be a part of that. As the Chiropractic Assistant I will do my best to make your experience here one in which you feel welcomed, comfortable, and catered to as more than just a patient. Your participation and support is key to the success of your goals and our mission.
Ben | Billing Director
Raised in Fort Wayne, IN this Hoosier took the leap in October of 2013 by moving to Portland for the many great opportunities it has to offer. In my free time I am a huge Star Trek fan, an avid movie buff, concert go-er, cook, hiker, and traveler of the Pacific NW.
I have been working in the healthcare industry specializing in insurance verification and benefits, prior authorization processes, claims resolution, and billing for the last 14 years. Although I might look a little gruff, I’m actually a very approachable guy and enjoy talking to patients. Please feel free to reach out to me directly for any of your insurance or billing questions.
Working at Devine Chiropractic has been an extraordinary experience. Their culture of encouraging wellness through good nutrition, exercise, maintaining a solid work/life balance, and regular chiropractic care has inspired me greatly and has made a huge difference in my personal life. Being free of headaches, debilitating back pain, and getting better rest have given me back the energy to be active again. I could not be more grateful for the inspiration my team provides.
Jodi Franken, NC | Wellness Coordinator
I am a lifelong east coaster new to the PNW. I live in SE Portland with my kids and am in love with all the new experiences the west coast has to offer.
I have a BA in History from University of Florida and additional certification in Holistic Nutrition from Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts. Upon moving to Portland I started my own Nutritional Counseling practice, Homegrown Health, LLC., where I guide my clients to adopt healthier eating habits to address their personal health goals and or health concerns. I embraced the opportunity to work at Devine Chiropractic as the Wellness Coordinator because the office philosophies espouse my own holistic approach to life.
My deep regard for wellness was spurred by personal need. My son has severe food allergies and autoimmune issues and when conventional medicine couldn’t provide answers, we found success in modifying our diet and lifestyle habits. Because of my real-life experience, I am passionate about helping other achieve their health goals. I look forward to meeting you.
