During her 16 years as a social worker, Lisa became well acquainted with the damage constant stress can do to the human body. When her back and neck pain became unbearable, a co-worker suggested she see Dr. Jean. Lisa had grown up going to chiropractors, but after becoming a patient found that Dr. Jean wasn’t like her childhood chiropractor – she was interested in helping the whole person, not just treating symptoms.
Lisa left the field of social work in 2004, and in 2005 brought her skills to the Gibson Center as both the office manager and Dr. Jean’s assistant. Using her extensive knowledge of management and governmental policies, she helped implement the use of Electronic Health Records in 2012. She continues daily to ensure the clinic complies with all Federal and insurance regulations. She also has extensive experience with insurance claims, and can help answer questions you have regarding insurance coverage.
In addition to her management duties, she is also trained in the use of Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NSRT) by BioVeda Technologies, and assists Dr. Gibson with the Contour Light therapy and Knee on Trac therapy as a Chiropractic Assistant.
Lisa and her husband have 1 son, who spent his early years at the clinic. The family is very active in the NWA community helping to serve children and families. She is a Board member of her son’s school PTO, and has previously served as an Odyssey of the Mind Coach for 3 years. Her family is also very active in the Westark Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Her husband David is Scoutmaster for Troop 116, a Scouts BSA troop in Fayetteville, where Lisa serves as a board member and their son is a Scout. Lisa is also a Founding member and current leader for Troop 357, a Scouts BSA all girl troop based in Fayetteville. She understands the busy life most of our patients lead, and wants to see all our patients be able to live the life they want to live.
