Meet the Interns

We are thrilled to welcome interns to PWC! Our doctors love supporting the next generation of chiropractors. Our interns will make such an impact on the kids and families in their communities when they graduate and share what they’ve learned!


Dawn Thomas – Chiropractic Intern

dawnI was born and raised in Lima, Ohio. Go Bucks! I married my high school sweetheart, Jamie, and we have 2 kids – Wyatt (16yrs) and Macy (14 yrs). In the summer of 2013, we felt led to move our family to Dallas, Georgia so that I could pursue a doctorate of chiropractic degree from Life University.

From a young age, I have always wanted to serve others. This desire led me to the nursing profession, where I worked as a cardiac nurse for 10 years before discovering chiropractic. It wasn’t until my husband and I exhausted every medical option available for our daughter, Macy, who struggled with delayed speech, sensory issues and gastrointestinal problems that a friend suggested chiropractic care. By this time, we were at our wits end and willing to try anything to help our daughter. After a short time of seeing a chiropractor 2-3 times a week, we began to see major changes in Macy. Her vocabulary began to grow, her tantrums became few and her GI issues also began to resolve.

Chiropractic helped us get our daughter back and my husband and I quickly agreed that God had big plans for our lives. He wanted us to help other struggling parents find that hope that we found through chiropractic. One of my favorite scripture verses is: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” Psalms 139:14 and this is true for each and every one of us. The body was created to heal itself as long as the nervous system is functioning at its greatest potential. Chiropractic helps unleash that potential within each one of us. Jamie and I agree that we can’t stop, we won’t stop until every struggling parent has heard the message of chiropractic.

I consider it a great honor and privilege to be spending my last 6 months of school learning from the talented doctors and team at PWC and serving the community of Crystal Lake, Illinois.
