Meet Our Chiropractors

Dr Jackie Elkins-Pole

Chiropractic Licensee

Jackie grew up and was educated in Melbourne, finishing Bachelor of Applied Science (Chiropractic) at RMIT in 1992. 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.

Dr Megan Kruger

Megan grew up in nearby Castlemaine, before moving to Melbourne in 2008 to study Chiropractic. 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. After graduating Megan moved to Bendigo to begin working with the team at n8 Health.

She decided to become a Chiropractor after seemingly endless injuries began to significantly hamper her heavy involvement in sport as a junior. Frustrated with only being offered assistance once the damage was done, she and her family began seeking answers as to the cause of her issues, and found them in Chiropractic.

Megan and her husband Ryan are parents to their two very busy boys, Angus (born 2017) and Spencer (born 2019) who are both fond of playing in the mud, and eating it.

Through their own fertility struggles and two very different pregnancy and birth journeys Megan has developed a passion for everything pregnancy and birth related. She loves nurturing women and their families through this transformational time.

Megan squeezes in home workouts around nap time and also enjoys playing and umpiring netball. She is a member of the Victorian Netball League umpiring squad and has officiated in every local Footy Netball League, where she has also taken on a mentoring role supporting up and coming umpires.

Dr Hayley Patullo

Hayley is excited to be joining the N8 Health group after growing up in the small town of Charlton.

After completing her primary and secondary education in Charlton, Hayley moved to the big smoke of Melbourne to study for 5 years at RMIT University. As an avid hockey player, her only other worry was finding a club and joined RMIT Hockey Club not long after.

Hayley became a chiropractor after a great week of Year 10 work experience in Melbourne and believing that this is something that needed to be provided in the small community she grew up in.

She is fascinated with how the body works and it’s ability to do things without even thinking about it! Hayley is looking forward to meeting new people and helping them function at their best!

Meet Our Receptionists

Karen Wishart

Karen grew up in New Zealand and moved to Bendigo 15 years ago after meeting her husband Dave while travelling overseas. She has two children – Jacob (born 2009) and Zoe (born 2012).
Since a young age Karen has always been intrigued by natural remedies and the body’s ability to heal itself. Her interest in Chiropractic is what led her to devoting her career to supporting the profession – a job which she loves. But when she’s not busy on the front desk you’ll find her taking long walks in nature or enjoying a bike ride with the kids. In the winter she enjoys skiing the slopes of Mt Hotham and in the summer camping anywhere near a beach with a good book is up there with one of her favourite activities. 

Travelling to New Zealand to visit extended family is something she hopes to be able to do more of in the future.

Aleisha Matthews

Aleisha is excited to have recently joined the N8 health team.

Aleisha is a Bendigo girl who previously worked as a Team Leader at the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank and has specialised in management roles in her working career. Aleisha took maternity leave in 2012 to have her gorgeous boy Cohen (born 2012) and another beautiful boy Cruz (born 2014). Aleisha has spent the last 9 years raising her two boys and now that they are both in school, she is excited and eager to have returned to the workforce.

Aleisha loves travelling, walking her German Sheppard, theatre, but most of all spending quality time with her husband Andy and her two boys who can always be found kicking a ball in the yard and exploring.

Aleisha has a passion for caring and helping people and being that friendly face to greet you.
