— Dr. Julie Donoso —

I am married to my super courageous and amazing husband, Dr. Anthony.  We plan to change the world together, ONE person at a time. I am a Christian.  I am a wife.  I am a mother. I am a daughter.  I am a sister.  I am blessed to be the mother of our son Judah and also to be sponsors for THREE beautiful children around the world.  I am also a Chiropractor.

Being a chiropractor is not a job for me.  It’s my calling in life.  I’ve always believed that you must have a passion for what you do and I can genuinely say that I love what I have been called to do!  I also believe that whatever each of us is passionate about reflects what we are willing to dedicate our lives to.

In a very unique way, I am passionate about chiropractic.  I have realized over the years that Chiropractic is a lifestyle choice focused on creating health, not on treating disease.  My passion is lived out everyday by leading families to be fully alive through the principles of Chiropractic.  I do not believe that anyone was created to live a life of sickness and disease.  I believe that each person was designed to be healthy and to live fully alive expressing his or her God-given potential.  My goal is to bring as many families with me to discover health and healing as God intended.

My desire to serve as a Chiropractor started when I was a teenager.  I experienced severe migraines on a daily basis that debilitated my life and left me feeling hopeless. I was desperate and needed a solution.  At that time, I was taking SIX Tylenol a day, just to cope with the pain.  I had seen many doctors and specialists, all who told me that I would have to live like this for the rest of my life, learning to manage the pain with drugs.

During this time, I was pursuing a 4-year undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and Health Science at York University (B.Sc).  I was fascinated with what went on inside the human body and marveled at the complexity of it.  I was excited to learn more and when a friend suggested Chiropractic to me, I was eager to learn about the principles and thought perhaps this is what could save my life from the debilitating migraines I was experiencing.

I decided to call and schedule an examination.  I was hesitant at first, but when the doctor told me I had misalignments in my spine, I knew with all my heart that this was the answer I had been looking for!  After a thorough doctor’s report, I received my first Chiropractic adjustment and instantly felt relief!  It was like a drainage plug had been released and I felt my body starting to heal.  It was a life changing experience for me and from that day onwards, I knew that I wanted to help people in the same way with the power of Chiropractic.

I attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and after 4-years of study I graduated with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree (D.C.).  In 2008 I began serving as a locum Chiropractor in Oakville at North Ridge Family Chiropractic.  After two years, I purchased the clinic and have been faithfully serving the community ever since.

When I am not adjusting at the office, I’m with my husband, our son and family relaxing up north at the cottage, playing tennis enjoying the outdoors or training for my next race, swimming, cycling or running.  For the last few years, I’ve been traveling to AFRICA and the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC to serve the people there through Chiropractors with Compassion Canada.  I plan on doing that for the rest of my life, with the people that I love the most, because those people have changed my entire life forever.  They have shown me a world that is so much more rich and abundant than I ever could imagine.

At the end of my life, I want to be remembered as someone with eternal vision who knew that she was greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved.  I will forever serve God by serving His people with all the passion and limitless dedication that I can!
