Aracelis (Chely, as we call her) is our Community Relations Coordinator/Front desk person for the past 5 years! She will be the first face you see while you set foot in our office! Chely has had extensive training in sharing the message of Chiropractic with “big companies” as an added health benefit for employees, and organizes all of our lunch and learns. She prides herself in accommodating each patient needs and makes them feel at home. For parents, she is a lifesaver as she is known to be the “baby holder” while parents get their adjustments in. All the children want to hang out with her!
Chely is also very passionate about Chiropractic and makes it a personal goal to continue learning and sharing the message and benefits of chiropractic with the world.
In her spare time, Chely loves spending quality time with her family especially her nieces and nephews. She enjoys nature, as well as living a healthy lifestyle!
Phil Braun has been a patient at McKinley Chiro since he moved to Chicago almost 10 years ago. He is happy to now be on the team here at the office as the Community Relations Coordinator. If you scroll past any photos or videos on your Facebook or Instagram feed, that’s his arena. He loves puns and the power of laughter; we love that new energy he brings to the office. Be sure to stop by and say hi!
Phil’s Dad is also a doctor of Chiropractic, so Phil has literally grown up with health and wellness as his middle name. Phil is also the king of office swag:)
