Meet Our Staff

Dr. Kathryn Hafer

Kathryn-HaferDr. Kathryn Hafer has lived and worked the Chiropractic lifestyle and philosophy for the last 30 years. She graduated with her Bachelors of Science from Western Michigan University. She got her Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa which is like the Harvard of Chiropractic schools and where it all began for the Chiropractic profession. She gained experience building long term Chiropractic relationships working in multiple offices throughout Southwestern Michigan Communities and owned and operated the Healing Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan beginning in 1997 to 2016. She also simultaneously took over ownership of the Allegan County Chiropractic Health Center (ACCHC) in 2007. Presently in 2017 she is giving her full attention and working at only the ACCHC.

While attending WMU, Dr. Hafer was involved in designing recreational programs and therapy for people with disabilities. This interest has led her to incorporate cranial adjusting and use of a low-force adjusting instrument called the activator into her “tool box” of techniques to use to help people reach their health potentials. These techniques of care as well as traditional Chiropractic methods, have been useful with individuals experiencing chronic headaches, concussions, sleep disorders, as well as developmental delays in children, ADHD, to name a few.

In her spare time, Dr Hafer enjoys the outdoors, playing with her dog Sedona, attending antique auto shows, enjoys movies, and vacationing in warm destinations.

When not working at the office, Jackie spends time walking with her dog Samantha. She draws and paints with a number of different mediums. During warm months Jackie plants and grows much of her own food, preserving it in many ways. If not in her garden or walking, Jackie enjoys the art of knitting.
