I am a native of the northwest growing up in Renton Washington. During high school I participated in sports including wrestling, track, and cross country. Following high school I attended several local colleges while studying general undergraduate classes. During this time I also was an assistant wrestling coach at Hazen High School. Following completion of the required undergrad course work I then went to the San Francisco Bay area to attend Life Chiropractic College West. I was excited and completed the 4 year program in 3 years by attending school year round. During my studies in college I focused my attention to injury rehabilitation and treatment of traumatic injuries. After graduation in 2001 I returned to my home and moved back to Renton. The next 4 years was spent working for an established chiropractor in Burien treating patients and managing his office. In 2006 it was time to open my own clinic; I opened Pure Chiropractic Center in Bellevue Washington. Since opening we have continued to strive to be on the cutting edge of treatment and have added new technologies such as Cold Laser and Decompression in addition to the Chiropractic and Massage therapy that we offer.
Dr. Hunter was born and raised in Iowa as the son of a chiropractic table manufacturer. Growing up he would often travel to seminars and conventions and watch chiropractors use the tables to adjust each other. It was from these experiences that Dr. Hunter realized he wanted to become a chiropractor. He received a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Northern Iowa and not long after his doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He honed his skills in the Palmer Clinic and traveled to Haiti to provide free care to underprivileged people. He then decided to depart the Midwest for the more scenic Pacific Northwest and is excited to build and expand his practice here at Pure Chiropractic Center. He looks forward to helping his patient’s both get better and stay better through natural noninvasive techniques. Dr. Hunter specializes in non-surgical spinal decompression, laser therapy, and weight loss, as well as providing normal chiropractic services. When not in the office you can find Dr. Hunter taking advantage of all the beautiful Northwest has to offer. He enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, cycling, skiing, movies, board games, and many other interests. He looks forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals for a healthy and happy life.
Hi, I’m Jill and I am a massage therapist that has been working at Pure Chiropractic since 2009. I graduated from Ashmead College in 2005 and entered school with the intent to do sports massage after graduation but while in school I fell in love with injury and rehabilitation treatments. Over the course of my career I have worked with people from all walks of life with a broad spectrum of pathologies and injuries. From the sixteen year old girl who sprained her knee playing soccer to the world champion UFC professional fighter, to the new mother with a neck strain from looking down at her baby, I’ve seen it all. Injuries, illnesses and deep tissue may be my specialty but I also enjoy helping people relax. I strive to give you a massage you will enjoy whether you are coming in for a specific ailment or just want to relive your stress and relax. When I'm not massaging I enjoy a wide range of hobbies which include; knitting, archry, soap making, camping, running,and gardening.
Hi, I’m Alex. I have been a massage therapist for four years now. Ever since I was six years old I was giving massages to my family members. So, after graduating from high school in my home town Kent, Washington, I decided to become a professional massage therapist. I attended Renton Technical College and have completed the 1092 hour massage program where I learned over 15 different massage modalities. I specialize in medical, deep tissue, Swedish, and sports massage. I am credentialed with most insurance companies. In my free time I like to hike, try out new food places, workout, and play paintball.
Hello! I’m Karri and I am the Office Manager for Pure Chiropractic. I started working at the office in 2009 and have been in the Chiropractic industry since 1996. I am an advocate for natural health care and my favorite part of the job is working with our patients and seeing the incredible results of their treatment. The office is a wonderful place to work; everyone contributes to a fun and positive atmosphere. Additionally I have been teaching business courses part time at City U since 2009. After completing my MBA from AIUI, I furthered my education by receiving the Senior Professional in Human Resources National Certificate from HRCI and the Senior Certified Professional certification from Society of Human Resource Management. When I’m not working, I enjoy time with my friends and family, reading, learning, spending time outdoors, traveling, watching the Seahawks, and my newest hobby photography.
Hi, my name is Nicole and I have been working at Pure Chiropractic for a little over a year now. I recently graduated Tahoma High School where I took two years of sports medicine classes. Taking those classes really sparked my interest in the medical field. I love helping people and seeing their progress throughout time. In the future I would like to become an athletic trainer for a sports team (the Seahawks preferably). This job is a great stepping stone for that goal. When I am not working I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, dancing, and my Sundays are dedicated to watching football.
I am a strong believer of chiropractic care, especially after my own vehicle accident in 2008. Chiropractic care has been essential to my good health and I enjoy working to help others who also believe in this care. Outside of work I enjoy reading, working out at the gym, taking naps, and spending time with my family.
