The Devine Chiropractic Team in Portland
Sue– Community Outreach Director
I was born in New Jersey and have lived all over the US (even Hawaii!). I teach several fitness classes a week and love personal
training. I am passionate about health and strive to have a community of wellness aware individuals. On the weekends I love to explore all the trails and forests Portland has to offer with my sweet puppy!
Brian – Client Advocate
I was lucky enough to be raised in south Texas, the land of perpetual summer and swimming holes. Though I loved the land of sun, I recently moved to Portland in October of 2014 to get out of the Texas heat and experience the outdoors that the Northwest has to offer. In my free time you will find me mountain biking, camping, or finding new places to explore.
Prior to moving to Portland, I achieved my Masters in Health Psychology and worked in a functional rehabilitation clinic as a Behavioral Health Counselor. I’m a believer in preventative healthcare and non-medication managed chronic pain treatment.
I have a passion for building healthy communities and think that chiropractic care is an important component in keeping the body and mind functioning at their highest potential. As Client Advocate I will go above and beyond to help you meet your health goals and live the wellness lifestyle.
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.
