Dr. Alyssa Brooks McPeak ~ Doctor of Chiropractic

I am a local Waupaca girl, and I am passionate about helping moms find answers to their healthcare questions. After being failed by the medical system, I went on a personal mission to find answers to my own health questions, and have continued to search for more holistic alternatives that allow the body to heal the way it was suppose to. I received my doctorate from Logan University and performed additional chiropractic training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) to specialize in pregnancy and pediatric care. As a mom of 4, I appreciate the importance of natural healthcare for myself and my family. Away from my practice, I enjoy time with my husband and kids, yoga, reading, the great outdoors, and anything on the water.

Natalie Gauerke ~ Chiropractic Student

Hello!  I am originally from Iola, WI.  I graduated from the UW La-Crosse in 2018 receiving my Bachelor’s in Exercise & Sports Science.  I am currently finishing my doctorate at Northwestern Health Sciences University, graduating in November 2021.  I am also obtaining my certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).  I have a passion for working with pregnant moms, children, and young families, but love taking care of people of ALL ages.  Health is the greatest blessing to us all, and I enjoy helping others maintain and optimize theirs.  I’m so excited to join the Roots family and meet all their wonderful patients!  When I’m not at Roots, you can find me walking my giant Newfoundland, lifting weights, hiking, reading a good book, and spending time with my family.

Stefanie Turzinski ~ Licensed Massage Therapist & Owner of Nurtured Roots Prenatal Massage

I grew up in Northern Illinois and moved to Central Wisconsin in 2012 where I became a Licensed Massage Therapist and earned my Health and Wellness Promotion degree.  I have always felt a strong pull to serve pregnant women and infants so I have made it my mission is to give total support throughout pregnancy, birth, and motherhood.  I want women who are pregnant to be comfortable as their bodies change, to feel nurtured and to be truly supported and empowered throughout pregnancy.  I want infants to get relief from gas pains, colic and to help them sleep better while their tiny bodies are growing.  Outside of the office you can find me in my craft room, outdoors hunting or fishing with my husband, or cuddling with my pups!

Heather Lyman ~ Business Development & Operations Manager

I am a graduate of Western Illinois University earning my B.A. in Communications with an emphasis on broadcasting, business, and psychology.  My years of experience in sales/marketing and business management, coupled with MY LOVE of being a long-time Roots patient, allows me to connect and support our team and amazing families like yours!  And speaking of families, I have one of my own and they are my favorite people to spend time with!  We love all things outdoors that keeps us fit and active -- camping, biking and kayaking are a few of our favorites!  I may be an Illinois girl born and raised but I'm a northern girl at heart and can't think of a better state to call home than beautiful Wisconsin!

Hi there!  My name is Laura.  I graduated from FVTC in 2011 earning my Licensed Practical Nursing Associates Degree and I worked at the WI Veterans Home in King for a few years.  When my husband and I had our son, I decided to be a stay at home mom and now we have two fantastic children!  I am so excited to be working at Roots Wholistic Health!

I am happy to be helping people with their health and wellness again.  We have such a great team of caring and helpful people here.  When I am not working, I enjoy time outside, gardening, hunting, camping, and spending a lot of time with my family.

Cesslie Klockzien ~ Patient Services

Hello!  A little bit about me...I started coming to Roots in 2020 because I had heard great things about how chiropractic can help moms-to-be.  At the time, I was pregnant with my third child and wanted to have an easier labor and delivery than my I had with my last two.  What a difference chiropractic made!  I really couldn't have asked for a better birth experience.  Now I bring all my kiddos in for adjustments; and I am proud to be part of a team helping other moms and families grow and heal through chiropractic care.  In my spare time (HA!HA!), I am earning by Bachelor's in Human Services at Upper Iowa University, boating or at the ball fields with my family, on the hunt for wild edibles and awesome garage sale finds, and crafting.
