Meet the Team | Active Family Wellness
Jessica came to Active Family Wellness after 20+ years in Retail Management. She was driven to help others to wellness after being a caregiver for her grandmother. She desires to help others find their way to natural wellness away from pharmaceuticals and surgeries. She was born in Germany into an army family. Living abroad for her formative years, her family returned to the States and was last stationed at Fort Belvoir. Jessica has been in Northern Virginia ever since.
When she is not working, she loves spending time with her fiancé and two adult kids. An avid crafter with her Cricut, she also loves sewing, cooking, and baking.
Sonja grew up in the Netherlands, where she enjoyed riding her bike around almost every day. After spending a few years in Korea, she came to the United States. She enjoys spending time outdoors with her two wonderful kids, and her favorite place to go to is the beach. Sitting in the sunshine with a good book and a cup of green tea or coffee brings her joy.
Having joined the office as a caring member first, she has first-hand experience and knows and believes in the amazing benefits that chiropractic can bring into all facets of your life. She loves to connect with people and give free hugs!
