Our Team

Jessica Menard

Jessica Menard

CEO - Outreach Team Directory

Jessica has been passionate about health and wellness for many years. Having first worked with geriatric patients suffering with Alzheimer's disease for several years, then as case manager for the severely mentally ill, she began the journey into chiropractic as a patient herself. After suffering for many year with undiagnosed piriformis syndrome, a chiropractor finally diagnosed the syndrome. After some much needed treatment and a referral to a podiatrist she finally found relief for the severe sciatica. It wasn’t long after that she decided that chiropractic was her calling. Going against mainstream medicine and pharmaceuticals, in a bold move, she made a career change from Nursing to start Menard Chiropractic Health Center, Inc.

Jessica has enjoyed participating in other wellness practices in communities throughout Massachusetts. She hopes to empower families to lead a life of optimal health and wellness. She is passionate about having returned to her hometown of New Bedford with her childhood sweetheart, David their four children, Ariana, Isaiah, Gaije and Gavin where they all continue to explore their love of the outdoors!

Lissette has an amazing family who loves to spend time together! Lissette, her husband Jesus and daughter Marilize have been in love with chiropractic years, and we were thrilled when Lissette joined our team over a years ago.
