Dr. Chantal Shelstad joined the Rudder Chiropractic team in May 2023 as their resident pediatric and pregnancy specialized chiropractor. Her passion is for growing families, as she is a mom of three young kids herself! Before becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Shelstad traveled the world following her husband's military career, was a doula, and even published a book of poetry (ask her about it sometime!) Her education includes a Bachelor's in History from the University of Colorado (Colorado Springs), CAPPA certified doula, Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner through FMU, certified Webster trained with the ICPA, and of course, a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Cleveland University (Kansas City). When she isn't at work, you can find her reading a good book in her hammock, on a hike with her family, or cuddling her cat on the couch.
