Stephanie Gutierrez, Lead Chiropractic Assistant

Stephanie Gutierrez has been working with Whole Family since 2013. Originally an intern from Virginia College in medical assisting, we liked her so much that we have kept her ever since. During the first educational seminar we attended, Stephanie couldn’t have a glass of wine with dinner because she wasn’t even 21 yet!

Stephanie is from Taylor, TX, has 3 sisters, one dog and one boyfriend.  She has come to see the amazing ways that Chiropractic changes lives and is very happy to be an integral part of our team. We love her too!

Alexa Manza, Operations

Now Alexa can be found most days in the office itself, actually doing Whole Family work. Alexa is Dr. Paris’ executive assistant, but she seldom has time to pick up her dry cleaning or make travel arrangements any longer.

Alexa was a patient for 2 years before coming to work for Dr. Paris and has now been an integral part of the team for over 4 years. She believes in the whole body healing of chiropractic and liked the clinic and the doctor so much she talked herself into a job.

Anna Suarez, LMT

Anna Suarez, born here in Austin Texas; has lived in Houston, Dallas, San Jose, Philadelphia. Los Angeles and Mexico City. She has worked as a teacher, bus driver, stay-at-home mom (her favorite), and various office positions.

As a child, Anna was raised within an atmosphere of healers. Her grandfather, who immigrated to this country from the Canary Islands, was a healer and lecturer. Her other grandfather, Dr. Roy E. LeMond, D.C., was a Palmer graduate and practiced in Austin.

READ MORE ABOUT ANNA »

He and his fellow “quack-opractors”, as they were referred to in those days, were instrumental in lobbying the 51st legislation to pass and enact the bill that created the first Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners; he held license #10. In addition Anna has had 3 aunts, a great uncle, and her mom’s brother who all were practicing chiropractors. You could say Anna had a well-adjusted childhood!

Finding herself at a career crossroads, a friend who knew Anna’s propensity to sense tension in a person’s body and want to do something to alleviate that tension, suggested she attend massage school. Since 1992 she has been relieving aches and pains and facilitating healing ever since. Her continuing education includes, but is not limited to: pre-natal massage, cranial sacral therapy, acupressure, reflexology and neuromuscular therapy. She has worked with some of the best chiropractors in clinical settings as well as maintaining a thriving private practice with many clients she has seen for over 12 years.

Anna is excited to be working with Dr. Paris, Dr. Fisher, the other massage therapists, and all the wonderful women in the front office. It is truly a great healing facility.

Marques Johns, LMT

A native of Texas, though recently returning from working in Chicago, Marques has been serving the Austin community since 2006 as a massage therapist. He began training in myofascial release and structural dysfunction therapy in 2007.

He is able to quickly adapt and apply various techniques seamlessly into his scope of knowledge in dealing with numerous structural dysfunctional issues which proven have to be highly effective for our patients. He can assess and treat many soft tissue problems while at the same time educating the patient to give them an understanding of how the dysfunction has been established, as well as helping each individual learn measures of self care that can reduce and sometimes reverse their situation.
