Set on Career in Collaborative Health, Chelsea Shultis Eager to Heal Future Patients
Originally on the pre-med track in her undergraduate school years, Chelsea Shultis (D.C. '22) knew her passion was for healing. Receiving chiropractic care for injuries from high school cheer and track motivated Shultis to pursue an education and career in chiropractic. Northeast College was recommended as the school that would teach her the best evidence-informed techniques to heal others.
Shultis talks passionately about the importance of being involved. Since becoming a student at Northeast, she has attended the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) leadership forum and the Professional Football Chiropractic Society Student Combine, held in Indianapolis during the 2022 National Football League Combine.
Shultis has also been a member of the New York State Chiropractic Association (NYSCA) and the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) in both the Northeast and national levels, and served as the secretary/treasurer of the class of November 2022. She has even met and networked with the New England Patriots' team chiropractor -- yep, the man who has adjusted football legend, Tom Brady. Shultis has high hopes she might be able to job shadow the Patriots' chiropractor in the future, and ultimately get a job in the New England region.
Shultis' goal is to work in a multi-disciplinary setting that combines chiropractic, nutrition, acupuncture, athletic training and massage therapy, among other modalities. She notes that, with her powerful preparation at the College, she's ready for whatever comes next: "The (chiropractic) program at Northeast is incredibly challenging in many ways, but at the end of the day, striving towards the goal of improving health and function of my future patients allows me to stay motivated and learn how to provide the best possible care."
