Dr. Kaylyn (Dr. Molly) was born and raised in rural Wisconsin. She grew up with a passion for animals and sports. She was active in 4H which included dog training/agility and all things horses. Dr. Molly has a nurturing personality, so it was natural for her to serve her hometown community as a Certified Nursing Assistant at a local Nursing Home from age 16 – 21. She graduated from UW-River Falls with a degree in Biology and a minor in Animal Science. She started going to a local chiropractor at age 12 to help with knee pain. That is where she learned about the benefits of getting regular adjustments. Her chiropractor was instrumental in leading her to continuing her education in the chiropractic field and helped with selecting Life University to complete her Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
As well as a Doctor of Chiropractor from Life University, Dr. Molly is a certified Animal Chiropractor through the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). This complements her life goals and passion for nurturing people and animals through natural health. Dr. Molly loves seeing her animal patients as she understands animals are a part of many families.
