Our Team

Jessica Menard

Outreach Team Director

 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 two children, Ariana, Isaiah, Gaije and Gavin where they all continue to explore their love of the outdoors!


Lissette Robles

Billing Manager / Outreach Team

 Lissette is the sparkling, smiling face you’ll see when you enter our doors! Lissette keeps the office running and makes sure everyone has everything they need. It’s not an exaggeration to say we would implode without her! Before coming to Menard Chiropractic Health Center, Inc. Lissette worked many years as a manager at Spectrum. 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. Lissette is a Fall River native but calls Menard Chiropractic her home away from home.


Gladirys Verdejo

Chiropractic Assistant / Team Member

 She started as a patient at MCHC and some of you may recognize her from training as an intern at our Fall River location. Gladirys ensures that our patients are comfortable; with her warm personality and hospitable nature she schedules appointments and monitors patient therapy to ensure every patient gets one on one attention. After graduating from the Salter School Gladirys continues to pursue her education, staying up to date with the latest therapies to bring our patients the best care possible. We are very proud to have her on our team! When she’s not greeting patients she can be found making great memories with her three children Michael, Alan and Janirys.
