Marisa Poole - Office Manager

33I discovered chiropractic in 2002 when I was looking for a small part time job while I was in college, I did not know then that it would become a career! I’m a huge college football fan and Saturdays in the fall you’ll always find me routing for my favorite team The Ohio State University Buckeyes! I’m a military kid who has lived and traveled all over the place finally settling down here in Texas where I met my husband, Clarke. We have one large lap dog named Buddy who we love to take down to our lake house when ever we have free time.
