Meet our Team
Jackie grew up and was educated in Melbourne, finishing Bachelor of Applied Science (Chiropractic) at RMIT in 1992, with Andrew.
She first practiced in a number of associateships in Melbourne, Armadale NSW and Swan Hill, prior to establishing Elkins Chiropractic Centre in Swan Hill in 1994 where she practiced for over 10 years. This all changed when she married and moved to Bendigo in 2004.
After nearly 12 months of locuming all over Victoria (including for Andrew) Jackie settled into working 2 and a bit days a week at Cameron Chiropractic (now n8 health) in February 2005 and apart from a short stint of maternity leave has been here ever since. When Jackie is not working she is a Mum to Mitchell. In the very little spare time that she has, you will find her out beside the netball court coaching and assessing umpires or when she’s really lucky hitting the slopes of Mount Hotham on her skis.
Jackie’s passion is chiropractic care for the whole family; making sure kids are getting the best start in life. One of the main issues for individuals and families alike in life today is the business and consequent stress on us. This has led her to complete the SD Protocol course (multiple times) to be a certified SD Protocol Practitioner.
Megan grew up in nearby Castlemaine, before moving to Melbourne in 2008 to study. She graduated with Distinction as one of the top students in her class from RMIT University in 2012 obtaining a Bachelor in Health Science (Chiropractic) and a Masters in Clinical Chiropractic. She is delighted to now live locally with her husband Ryan and their two crazy pugs!
Seemingly endless injuries began to significantly hamper Megan’s heavy involvement in sport as a junior. Frustrated with only being offered assistance once the damage was done, and faced with the possibility of reconstructive ankle surgery Megan and her family began seeking answers as to the cause of her issues-and discovered Chiropractic. With less injuries came higher performance and from here her journey to become a Chiropractor began.
Megan maintains her passion for all things fitness, and founded our Dynamic Core Activation classes. She spends a lot of time on netball courts all around the state both playing and umpiring, and thoroughly enjoys a tough gym session or a long run with music pumping!
Megan loves using Chiropractic to help people live a life they never thought possible. She delights in seeing people get back to their best and starting to make the most out of every day. She has special interest in working with children of all ages and helping the elderly remain independent and active.
Megan is constantly inspired by the positive outcomes Chiropractic care brings to patients at every stage of life, and feels blessed to work with the professional, highly dedicated and caring staff at n8 health Bendigo. This passion for amazing service and dedication to the profession has seen her undertaking professional coaching roles, and mentoring new graduates, and experienced Chiropractors alike
Andrew graduated from Chiropractic in 1992. He first practiced in Coffs Harbour (playing the 1996 winning AFL grandfinal with North Coffs) and after marrying Jane he went to work and live in Ireland for a year. In 1997 he moved back to Bendigo to raise a family (is there anywhere better?).
Andrew and Jane established Cameron Chiropractic in 1997 which grew into n8 Health. N8 Health Bendigo is dedicated to Andrew’s grandmother Joyce, who suffered needlessly with lower back problems that left her unable to live a productive life. This was due to some poor surgical advice and operations, when a different direction could have been so easily achieved.
“In establishing N8 Health Bendigo, our aim to help prevent the same loss of a productive and rewarding lifestyle.”
They have three boys Louis, Jimmy and Sol. Andrew recently returned to playing cricket with Marong Cricket Club with 2 of his sons and 2 nephews. Marong’s coach Tom says that he “believes Andrew has some potential, we just have to find it”. In the Winter Andrew does orienteering and undertakes Jane’s gardening suggestions.
