Bryn Anderson

office manager

Bryn recently moved to Hoboken from Madison, WI where she attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Bryn became passionate about Chiropractic after working for another holistic Chiropractic office in Wisconsin. After suffering from migraines from an early childhood, Chiropractic changed her life and has been medication-free for years! Over the years, Bryn has enjoyed learning about holistic healthcare and she cannot wait to become a Chiropractor herself!

Bryn loves that our office sees the entire family. Her favorite parts of the day are holding the newborns or playing with the older children while their parents get their well-deserved “me’ time. Outside of work, Bryn enjoys watching sporting events, working out, and spending time with her family and dog Lexi.
