We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Amanda Foster and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Amanda, has the Covid-19 Crisis affected your perspective on work-life balance?
Since Covid-19 hit in mid-March, we have cut back on open patient hours. I have been bringing more self-awareness to my work style, finding ways to work smarter, more efficient and effective. I’ll adjust my schedule accordingly to fit my patients’ needs. When I am working I am focused and present. When I’m not working I get outside, workout daily, talk to my family, try new recipes, and meditate with my fiancé. I recommend doing something you love every single day.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I’m a Chiropractor in San Diego at North Park Chiropractic. We are very fortunate to be an essential business and stayed open during these Covid times to help those in need.
We are a family run business at our core. My grandfather built our office from the ground up in 1952. My father, myself and now my younger sister have followed his footsteps with chiropractic. I have so much respect for my father and grandfather. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. We are extremely proud of my sister, Brook, she graduated in April 2020. Excited to have a Chiropractic sister team!
I believe that nothing is more important than your health. All of the doctors in our office are board certified Chiropractors and X-ray certified. We take X-rays in house and neuromuscular scans that show muscle imbalance and inflammation. Our office also provides deep tissue massage and physiotherapy.
We treat many families, military/veterans, & specialize in personal injury cases such as car accident recovery.
We strive to treat everyone that walks into our office with love and respect. We help people everyday reach their health and wellness goals.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Due to COVID, a lot of businesses and restaurants are still closed. I recommend getting outside, the weather has been amazing! Pack a lunch, snacks and plenty of water. The app AllTrails, shows you the open hikes around San Diego. Take your shoes off and get grounded at the beach, especially in La Jollla or sunset cliffs.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to give a special thank you to my life partner & fiancé, Chris. We postponed our wedding in response to COVID, like many others. He loves and supports me unconditionally, and motivates me daily to be the best version of myself. I love and appreciate him beyond words.
