Dr. Morrow decided to become a Chiropractor after working for several years as a massage therapist and a physical therapy aide. She wanted to be able to affect not only the soft tissues, like muscles, fascia, and tendons, but to have an immediate affect on bones and joints, as well.
"I wanted to find an avenue that allowed me to continue using my healing hands, provided me with diagnostic tools, and also enabled me to play a role in the hopeful shift towards a more functional and sustainable delivery of health care. Chiropractic has allowed me to do just that.”
While attending the University of Illinois to obtain her Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology, Jennifer spent a year in Perth, Western Australia, where she met her husband. It was there that she decided to return for four years to complete her Chiropractic education.
Some of her extracurricular involvement while in school included treating families in rural India, professional surfers in South Africa, and working as an intern to the Seattle Mariners baseball team. Upon graduation, Dr. Morrow worked in a busy family wellness practice on the Sunshine Coast of Australia before returning to the U.S.
"As an athlete, I have always had an appreciation for how the body works. As a massage therapist, I feel that I gained an intuitive healing capacity with my hands. This has been a wonderful asset as a Chiropractor in delivering safe, effective, and gentle care.
Hood River had been beckoning Dr. Morrow to return for nearly a decade. She has recently settled back in the Gorge with her husband and son, where they enjoy hiking, mountain biking, windsurfing and kitesurfing, yoga, meditation, and cooking healthy meals for friends and family.
