LaRissa has been a Chiropractic Assistant at New Leaf Chiropractic almost 4.5 years total. Her job functions as different things on different days, but regularly includes the Front Desk position of answering phones, scheduling, and taking payments (if you have an insurance question, she'll likely have to defer to Jessi, our Insurance Specialist); Chiropractic Assisting including New Patient exams, re-exams, nerve and foot scans, and developing X-rays; and Marketing Ninja by scheduling and organizing Lunch and Learns, running all the social media, working on Google Rankings, and occasionally even some IT Support. So if you've ever looked at her computer and you've caught her playing on Facebook, Youtube or blogs or on her phone on Instagram, you can rest assured, she is actually working! LaRissa is also a Licensed Massage Therapists and does Massage in the office on Wednesday afternoons and Fridays.
LaRissa says she loves Colorado so much she moved here twice! First time was in 2010 to go to massage school at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy. Second time she moved here was after a year and half of living in San Francisco where she ran another chiropractic clinic. However, the call of the Rockies proved to be too strong and she and her wonderful husband of 5 years returned to Longmont and bought a house! Now when LaRissa isn't trying to figure out how Twitter works, she loves to be hiking with Apple and Enza, doing yoga, backpacking, traveling, eating vegetarian food, taking pictures, trying to make her cats internet famous, playing the Ukulele, embroidering, knitting, or gardening.
If you want to get a free lunch set up for your entire office or if you have suggestions for amazing hikes, let LaRissa know. She'll be thrilled to hear all about it!
