Marnie is our Practice Manager, the leader of the Chiropractic Assistant Pack and the mum of the group (literally, with Chiropractic Assistant Charli being her daughter!). Nothing is too much trouble for her and she works hard to make sure our patient’s needs are met from the time they call the clinic, their experience whilst at the clinic and once they’ve left the clinic. She has a genuine concern for the people around her. Her organisational skills and ability to multitask (some may say she has OCD) makes for a smooth running of the clinic. Without her the clinic wouldn’t run! In her spare time, Marnie enjoys spending time with family, walking her dogs in the sunshine, and reading a good book.
