Meet the Whole Family Chiropractors Team

Dawn Price, Practice Manager

Meet Dawn Price, our Practice Manager! She is from Fayetteville, AR but has considered Austin her home for more than 30 years. She graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Administration. As the granddaughter of an Internal Medicine Doctor and two Register Nurses, as well as a sister who is a Midwife, working in healthcare was a no brainer. Dawn found her niche for medicine in operations and has more than 20 years’ experience, which includes in-depth knowledge of Revenue Cycle, Finance and Patient Services for over 30 specialty types. In her free time, Dawn loves to listen to live music with her husband, watch her daughter pitch on the softball field and, on Sundays, you will find her curled up on the couch with her 2 dogs and a cat rooting for the Dallas Cowboys.

Join us in welcoming our new Lead CA, Silke! (Pronounced Silk-ah.) Silke is originally from Germany, but grew-up in San Antonio where she graduated from UTSA with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science and Health Education. She has called Austin home for the past five years and YES – she speaks both German and Spanish! She has worked as a health + wellness coach for eight years and brings extensive knowledge of holistic and functional health. A great fit for our practice and patients alike! She also has training in biometrics, nutrition, insurance verification, billing, and x-ray. In her free time, Silke loves…and we mean really, really LOVES live music and sporting events. So much so, that she works part-time as security at venues around town so she can enjoy those shows for free. She and her family enjoy spending time together watching movies, cooking, playing with their dog Booboo, and being outdoors. Her son is a Senior this year and she is soaking up every last minute with him!

Katharine Bills, Chiropractic Assistant

Katharine Bills was born in Houston but has traveled extensively. Her mother was a teacher and decided to home school her by having her learn around the world. Being young and beautiful, Kat came to RejuvaWell as a patient. Though she was already beautiful, we agreed to help her along just a wee bit more. She was so excited by her treatments here, that she asked if she could intern, just to learn. Then, unfortunately, she got into a car accident and became a chiropractic patient. So obviously, she wanted to learn everything about chiropractic and has now become an integral part of the team. She is trained as a chiropractic and medical assistant, CPR, and BLS certified for health care providers, and is learning x-ray. She does great DermaSweep, Fire & Ice, and AquaGold facial treatments as well as being certified to perform all of our body sculpting services. In her spare time, Kat enjoys sleeping and eating. No really, she does! But she also likes to spend time learning all about chiropractic and aesthetics and has now decided this is the profession she will pursue in her future. We are thrilled to have her with us.

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.

Max and Margo

Max and Margo are Dr. Paris’ kids. They have been adjusted since birth and have also been helping their mother for many years. Currently, they both pass out fliers, sort mail, model exercises for video and listen to Dr. Paris talk about various business issues and physical conditions. They have very good insights and are learning many things about being a chiropractor and running a business. A few times a week they make dinner and have it ready for Mom when she comes home from work. READ MORE ABOUT MAX AND MARGO »
