Meet the Staff - Dr. Therese Miller of Miller Sports & WellnessDr Therese Miller – Owner & Chiropractic Physician

Education

I have been incredibly lucky to train under some of the most recognized names in manual therapy since beginning private practice as a Chiropractor/Manual Therapist in 2010. I originally graduated with a BA in Exercise Science from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2005. After spending one year in the fitness profession as a strength and conditioning coach, I pursued my Chiropractic degree at National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. Graduating magna cum laude in 2010, I was awarded the prestigious Joseph Janse Award. The award is given to an outstanding graduate who has made significant contributions to the school, the community, and has a bright outlook for the profession ahead.

History

I grew up enjoying all types of sports but found my true love in gymnastics. I competed in several gymnastics organizations including YMCA, USAG through level 10, my high school’s gymnastics team, and finally as a NCAA collegiate gymnast. Throughout my competitive career, I suffered 16 major injuries including 2 surgeries. As difficult as this was, it taught me perseverance, and drove me onto the path I am on today.

Interests

Helping people and providing the highest quality care and techniques is my passion. I am constantly pursuing continuing education seminars, working to master current techniques and continue learning from others in my field. In the near future, I will complete my Diplomate in Chiropractic Rehab as well as most coursework required for a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician.

I currently live in Waterford, WI with my husband and young daughter. My hobbies include family time and trips to the zoo. I also dabble in competitive power lifting, power-kiting, swing dancing and binge watching movies whenever I get the chance.

Dr. Moira Martin – Associate Chiropractic Physician

Dr. Moira Martin is a board certified, licensed, doctor of chiropractic who specializes in the treatment of spinal and extremity sports injury along with repetitive strain conditions.  She earned her associates degree from Kankakee Community College, her bachelors from St. Norbert College, and her doctorate, Cum Laude, from Logan College of Chiropractic.

Dr. Martin believes in the ability to live pain-free for a better quality of life while maximizing human performance and minimizing injury.  She uses a comprehensive approach, taking care to listen to individual concerns and provide patients with customized solutions and treatment plans.  She employs a “test, treat, re-test” model which assures appropriate progress is being achieved within each visit. Through functional movement assessment, chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue treatment, and dynamic neuromuscular stabilization (DNS), Dr. Martin is able to create a multifaceted approach to treat the true origin of symptoms and not just the site of pain.  Her goal is to empower patients to take control of their own health and not become dependent on care.

Katherine Adamek, OLY

Katherine Adamek – Owner: Fix Your Mindset

In 2010 Katherine won a silver and bronze medal at the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. Shortly after she needed her first of what would eventually be three hip surgeries followed by several injections, countless second opinions, and years of rehab. She retired in 2013 and began coaching.

After 3 years of coaching she realized that her passion was still in speedskating. She quit her job and started a comeback for the 2018 Games. Instead of moving back to Salt Lake City, UT to train with the National Team Katherine stayed in Milwaukee to train with the team that she had worked so hard to develop. Within months she was back on the World Cup Circuit, racing in contention for a medal.

A concussion in 2017 kept her from competing in the 2017 World Championships. After 6 months off the ice and lingering concussion symptoms Katherine began her preparation for the 2018 Olympic Trials. Her coach and her team helped her get back within tenths of her personal best times, but it was not enough. Katherine finished 5th at Olympic Trials, but only the top 3 made the team.

The disappointment of not making a 2nd Olympic Team was difficult to overcome, but the mental challenges throughout the entire process of the comeback are what inspired Katherine to find her next passion in life, Performance Mindset Coaching.

Katherine started her own business, Fix Your Mindset, to teach high performing individuals, teams, and organizations the mental skills necessary to break through mental barriers in order to achieve their goals.

Katherine is particularly excited to work with clients at Miller Sports and Wellness to help them change their perception of pain and manage the emotions that go along with chronic injury. In addition, users of the curriculum report a 35% reduction in stress, 26% reduction in boredom and monotony, and a 99% increase in the amount of time spent feeling good without escape activities.

Emma Weisensel

Emma Weisensel – Chiropractic Technician

In December of 2018, I will be graduating with a BS in Kinesiology and a minor in Nutritional Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am very excited to work with Dr. Miller and her team as a chiropractic technician. I hope to learn new skills and techniques that will prepare me for a future career in chiropractic. My love for sports and a passion for health and wellness are what drove me to pursue an education in exercise science. My mission is to work hard and dedicate time into helping others so that they can return to their best quality of life.

In my free time you can catch me cheering on any of our Wisconsin sports teams, binge watching a show on Netflix (or Hulu), playing a friendly game of lacrosse, or experiencing new adventures with my friends and family.

Katie Gates

Katie Gates – Office Coordinator

I graduated cum laude from the University of Tulsa in May of 2016 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Vocal Music Education. After graduation, I realized that my true interests lie in Information Technology. Shortly following this discovery, my husband, Grant, accepted a position in Racine, so we packed up our two dogs and headed north. Once we got settled, I was accepted to the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and began working on my Master’s Degree in IT. I hope to have the program complete sometime in 2020. As I work on my Degree, I’m enjoying learning more about Office Management with Miller Sports & Wellness. I hope that my growing knowledge of information science will be an asset to Dr. Miller and her practice.
