Dr. McCleary says one of the most common questions she gets is why she became a chiropractor. 'The desire to teach and my love for the sciences and athletics initially lead me towards Athletic Training and Physical Therapy, but once I learned more about the chiropractic profession, I realized that the vitalistic approach of the Doctor of Chiropractic was a better fit with my philosophy on health and healing. I was interested in looking at the whole person and trying to identify natural ways encourage the body to body to heal itself.'
As a sports chiropractor she enjoys helping individuals return to the field as quickly as possible and helping her practice members boost their performance through conservative care. Dr. McCleary's experiences have led her to work directly with athletes in professional sports, the U.S. Olympic Training Centers, and local gyms. Dr. McCleary admits that she enjoys learning more all the time and is passionate about quality care. She says 'I am blessed to have had the opportunity to work with not only some of the best athletes, but also to have worked along side some of the best health care providers out there, and that is what helps me to continue to grow.'
