​Ariel Hildenbrand, Receptionist

Hello! My name is Ariel Hildenbrand. I am a receptionist at the office! I graduated from Larkin High School in 2015. During my time there I participated in an art program, the Academy of Visual and Preforming Arts. I have always loved drawing and because of that I have a strong passion for art. I previously worked a retail job, so when I was told about a possible job with Dr. Jake I applied for it as soon as I could. I quickly learned about the benefits of Chiropractic care and what is involved in healing the body naturally, thanks to that I am very eager to continue learning! I love how up-beat and energetic everyone is around the office and I really enjoy working with Dr. Jake and Melissa, it’s a fun and friendly environment!
