Support Team
Mel - Senior Chiropractic Assistant
Mel - Senior Chiropractic Assistant

Mel has returned to C2C after an absence of 3 years because as she says "I love it here and missed the people and the friendships I had made." After a too long absence spent growing her family's own business in the Lockyer Valley, Mel is back in a big way, putting the lessons learned from her own business to good use here at the clinic - wooing customers and team members alike with her customer focused can-do attitude.

We asked Mel what she gets up to when not at work: "I have two very active teenagers and enjoy watching them playing and/or refereeing soccer, I love to find a quiet time to read, I love fishing and enjoying quality time with my family.

Rosie - Chiropractic Assistant

Rosie's cheerful smile will always greet you warmly when you walk into the clinic. Her nurturing, motherly nature makes her the perfect person for our team in addition to her many years working in customer service.

Tori - Chiropractic Assistant
Tori - Chiropractic Assistant

As you walk into our clinic on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday you will find Tori waiting to greet you with a warm smile. She is always happy to help you with just about anything - whether it's making an appointment, billing or even if you're just after a heat pack or a coffee while you are waiting to see a practitioner. Tori has been with the clinic, as a chiropractic assistant for nearly a year now and she is winning over hearts with her second to none customer service skills.

When she's not working, Tori likes to spend time with her friends and be social. She's also a lover of animals and hopes to one day own a place big enough to accommodate all the animals that her heart desires. 

Joelene - Administrator
Joelene - Administrator

Regulars to C2C will know that Joelene looks after all things administrative - from banking to business tracking and payroll. Joelene does all the back-end stuff that makes the rest of us look good, in her discreet and unassuming way. We couldn't do what we do without her.

When Joelene is not at work she enjoys spending time with family, catching up with friends for smoko and enjoying her favourite hobby - Millinery. What is a milliner I hear you say - "a person who designs, makes, or sells hats." Don't hesitate to ask Joelene to show you her latest hat designs next time you drop by the clinic.
