Holly Suarez, Owner, Doctor of Chiropractic, Birth Doula
I am a chiropractor and doula serving the Twin Cities area. I grew up in a small town in Western Wisconsin amongst a family full of chiropractors. Taking a natural approach to our health and getting regular adjustments was important to my family and I knew at a young age that I too wanted to become a chiropractor. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse. From there, I went to Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN and graduated in 2007 with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree. While I enjoy treating patients of all ages, I have always been drawn to working with pregnant women and children. I love being able to help people throughout their pregnancy as their body is constantly changing. In 2012, I completed my birth doula training through DONA International. Helping birthing women realize their bodies potential, supporting families physically and emotionally and witnessing new life enter this world is truly rewarding and an honor to be a part of. I've practiced throughout the Twin Cities but in 2013, I moved my practice to Saint Paul and joined the fabulous group of women that made up Enlightened Mama and Enlightened Wellness. In 2016, the opportunity arose for me to take over as the owner of Enlightened Wellness which I gladly took. I'm thrilled to be able to offer a wide array of services with skilled providers to clients throughout the metro area.
In my free time, I love taking my dog Louie for walks in the neighborhood, cooking, knitting, reading and supporting our local culture. I currently serve as the President of the Childbirth Collective, a non-profit in the Twin Cities that supports families throughout birth and the childbearing years.
