Dr. Ashley Jefferies graduated with her bachelors degree in Natural Science from Hawaii Pacific University. She continued her education in Southern California, graduating from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 2013. She has gained experience over the years both in solo practice and as part of a team in prenatal and pediatric practices.

Dr. Ashley first experienced chiropractic as a sophomore in high school due to a sport’s injury. After the success of her care, she became a huge advocate for Chiropractic and has since learned more about the benefits of not only relief of pain, but the proper functioning of the entire body.

 

While in Chiropractic school, Dr. Ashley went on a Chiropractic Mission Trip to Peru to share the gift of chiropractic with those in desperate need. It was there that she was able to see and adjust hundreds of people from all walks of life, age 7 months old to 97 years old, and found her passion for helping mother's to be and children.

While she has spent extra time studying and learning about preconception, pregnancy and pediatrics, she takes care of individuals of all ages. From her experience, she knows that creating a healthy foundation with the least amount of interference is the best chance for success. Her mission is a healthy lifestyle for the whole family, there is no ONE that chiropractic excludes!
