Dr. McCleary has been recognized for her attention to detail, a comprehensive approach, and the ability to connect with her patients.
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 athletic performance through natural and conservative care options. Dr. McCleary's experiences have led her to work directly with young athletes, professional sports, international competition, and athletes at local gyms. She admits that she enjoys learning more all the time and is passionate about 'quality care'.
Some of her other professional interest include female hormone imbalances, chronic pain syndromes associated with stress and fatigue, and digestive distress. When she is outside of the office she enjoys trying new restaurants, teaching yoga, jogging with her husband, and spending time with her son.
