Meet The Practitioners - Helping You Along Your Journey To Be Pain-Free

Dr. Kyla Miller

Dr. Kyla Miller

Chiropractor

Originally from BC, I attended University of Victoria for my undergraduate studies, and then continued on to Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2007, and was a member of the Sports Chiropractic Team.

I look forward to meeting you and your family, and working together along the path of health and wellness.

More about Dr. Miller

My favourite part of my job is that it feels like I treat friends all day long. I love to hear about your families, workout routines, new challenges you are facing at work, trips you are planning, and activities you are participating in. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, and hearing the giggles of children after getting adjusted, working with a pregnant mom and then meeting her new baby, and listening to the stories of my “snow birds” who have returned from a winter of golfing down South.

Knowing how important chiropractic care is to my health, I continue to be adjusted every week, so I can continue to play competitive water polo, keep up with my very active dog (Wattson, an Airedale), golf, learn how to play hockey, take time out to relax and enjoy my husband’s company, and function at my best.

When I’m not at the office or the pool, I volunteer with Rotary International, working directly with international youth exchange students, helping them learn our Canadian culture, and appreciate all that Canada has to offer. For those patients who speak French, I am also bilingual, and would really appreciate being able to practice my French, so please challenge me to do so!

Dr. Linda Li

Dr. Linda Li

Chiropractor

I was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Canada most of my life. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Alberta and continued my studies at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where I graduated with a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic. In addition, I am certified in Clinical Acupuncture, Thompson Technique and Graston Techinque®.

More about Dr. Li

Growing up in a Chinese family, I have always been exposed to alternative therapy and have noticed that the body responds very well with fewer side effects. I was first introduced to chiropractic when my mom was suffering from severe back pain. Not only did chiropractic treatment helped relieve her complaint, her chronic headaches were also resolved. She no longer carries pain medication in her purse, which she had been doing for years.

During my internship, I volunteered for the CMCC Chiropractic Outreach Abroad to the Dominican Republic to provide chiropractic care to the less privileged. This experience has influenced my perception on how effective and beneficial manual therapy can be in treating a variety of different conditions.

Outside of professional practice, I enjoy baking, playing ball hockey, badminton, and swimming. Chiropractic care has been a very important part of my health in maintaining an active lifestyle. I look forward to working with you and your family to achieve optimal function and health.

Dr. Valerie Forrester

Dr. Valerie Forrester

Chiropractor

I have had the pleasure of being a Chiropractor in Calgary since 2001, with a focus on whole family wellness. I graduated from Northwestern Health Science University in 2001 with a Doctorate of Chiropractic and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Anatomy. At which time I had the opportunity to treat the Minnesota Vikings Football team as part of my internships.

More about Dr. Forrester

​I love chiropractic and being able to treat a wide variety of ages, including pregnancy, and pediatrics. The love of kids led me to complete a 200-hour certification from the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association). This additional training with the world leaders in pediatrics and pregnancy adjusting has given me advanced knowledge to help the entire family from birth onward to our later years in life. I am certified in the Webster Technique.

I have learned a variety of techniques over my years in practice and strive to find the right one that works for each individual body, preference and condition. When I am not seeing patients I love to cook and do a wide variety of work out classes, from Barre, weight training, spin, and yoga. In the summer I love wake surfing with my kids and husband. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your health goals.

Her gentle, chiropractic approach incorporates manual/instrument and drop table techniques.

Jenny Limoges

Jenny Limoges

Midwife

As a twelve-year old looking through healthcare magazines, I discovered my passion for helping women at various stages of their life. I even created a scrapbook page which included snip-its of nursing and obstetrics content. At the time, I did not know the name for the type of practitioner I wanted to become… a midwife! I completed my Bachelor of Science (Health Science, 2013) at Mount Royal University (MRU) and applied to medical schools. Shortly after completing my BSc, I discovered the midwifery model of maternity care and returned to MRU in 2017. In 2021, I graduated from MRU with my Bachelor of Midwifery and a Minor in Women & Gender Studies.

More about Jenny

The past few years of my life have been filled with loss and joy. The experiences remind me to remain present, and to live in the moment. As a parent myself, I know firsthand how sacred childbirth is, and how transformative pregnancy, labour, and parenthood are. I feel that empowering others and walking with pregnant people during the experience of pregnancy and childbirth is exactly what my twelve-year-old self had dreamed of. Now, as a result of learning about the physiology of how our human bodies build, birth, and feed our babies, I am convinced that pregnancy is an experience that renews trust in our bodies capabilities.

I feel honoured to be a midwife, because this role affords me the opportunity to live out my passion and to fulfill my purpose. My practice of midwifery integrates discussions about how our body’s physiology, our intuition, and evidence-based maternity care influences pregnancy, labour and birth. My hope is to encourage confidence in my clients (and partners), about the body’s ability to build, birth, and nurture a baby as they navigate pregnancy and childbirth. From a young age I have been involved in initiatives that support and encourage women and girls. It just so happens that now my career as a midwife is also my life’s calling. I am humbled by the clients and families I serve, and I appreciate being a part of these sacred and precious the moments.

Bailey Patton

Bailey Patton

Midwife

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to work alongside and support birthing people in some capacity. I attended the University of Calgary and graduated with a science degree in 2018 with my primary focus being biology and chemistry. Near the end of my studies I came across this wonderful world of midwifery and was fortunate to begin my training at Mount Royal University shortly after. To me, midwifery extends far beyond a profession – it has shaped the way I take in the world and the way I want to be present in the lives of others. Thank you for including me in your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. I look forward to getting to know and share so many incredible experiences with the birthing people and families of Honeycomb!

More about Bailey

Inclusion, bodily autonomy, evidence-based care, informed choice, and consent are at the forefront of my approach to midwifery. I also recognize the privilege that encompasses an invitation into a birth space, and I feel profound gratitude to be able to develop collaborative and trusting relationships throughout each individual parenting journey.

Savannah Schellenberg

Savannah Schellenberg

Midwife

Prior to pursuing midwifery I studied and worked as a kinesiologist in the Okanagan, where I was continually amazed by the design and capability of our bodies. My passion for midwifery was ignited when I joined a research project promoting reproductive health in rural Ghana. The relationships and experiences I gained during that opportunity solidified my desire to care for families throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

More about Savannah

During my midwifery training I had the privilege of working with skilled midwives, many of whom are here at the hive! They instilled in me passion for informed choice, evidence based practice, and person centered care. These elements are core to how I approach midwifery. My goal is for clients to be informed, respected in their choices, and feel well supported. Supporting families during such a transformative time is beyond a privilege. I am deeply grateful to the families that have allowed me to share in their journey, and am excited to welcome and walk with future families!

Jodie Campbell

Jodie Campbell

Functional Medicine AFMC | Health Coach

I’m Jodie but you already figured that part out! I’m a Functional Medicine Health Coach, gut geek, mom, wife, and bookworm. I love raw chocolate, green smoothies (even in winter), Amazon Prime, and helping women love their guts. When I’m not supporting clients, you can find me playing in the Rocky Mountains with my husband, son, daughter, and our dog Nora!

More about Jodie

I started this whole, wild ride because I was just searching for ways to improve and protect my family’s health (something I’m sure everyone can relate to). Before I knew it I was elbow deep, sifting through media fear mongering, false advertising, fad diets, and a nauseating amount of just plain stupid advice.

What I needed more than anything was someone to shoot it to me straight, someone to actually help!

And so instead of looking for her, I become her.

I couldn’t have known then how much of a health nerd I would turn into, how amazing I would find the design of the human body for optimal health, or how obsessed I would become in helping others build lifestyles (and legacies) that make them truly happy and healthy.

So that’s me!

You can expect me to be consistent in sharing useful and simple information. You can count on my excitement and dedication in motivating you in exactly the ways you need. You can trust that I am results oriented, and strategic towards giving you a life of freedom (and fun!). When I’m not totally geeking out on gut health topics, you can find me camping in the Rocky Mountains with my husband of 21 years and our two fantastic kids.

Massage therapy seemed to be the next natural progression in my journey. I studied at the University of Calgary, and graduated in April 2003. Massage has branched out into relaxation, therapeutic, pre/post natal, and for the last two years I have incorporated “Jade Stones” into my work.
