Karen D. Azevedo D.C.

Karen Azevedo 9755 SmallFILESIZE"I am a Chico local, born and raised in our friendly, active, outdoor loving community. I have been blessed with three healthy children, a daughter and two sons. I enjoy my family,  working out and being a member of Omega Nu Sorority. As a Palmer Chiropractic graduate, I earned a clinical excellence award among my peers, and have demonstrated that excellence throughout my 20 years of providing patient care. I am passionate about chiropractic because I have seen thousands of  my patients benefit from it. I believe wellness is achieved through a balance in spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health.

My holistic approach is based in science and education,  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education from California State University Chico,  an emphasis in  Exercise Physiology, a minor in Nutrition, and certifications as an Exercise Science Specialist from the American College of Sports Medicine. I have worked as a health and fitness instructor, a nutritionist, and a diet counselor.  I enjoyed being the team chiropractor for many  professional athletic teams, including the Chico Rooks, the Chico Heat and the Chico Outlaws. Keeping athlete's at peak performance level and achieving a quick rehabilitation rate  is a personal standard of excellence that I pride myself in as a professional healthcare provider."

Helping people achieve healing and health is a deeply rooted motivation in my life.  I am deeply spiritual and suzlive my life with a passion for God and loving others.  I'm a Chico native, and met my amazing husband, Jeff, at Chico State, where  I received my BA in Communications. We have three beautiful children, my son Xander and my two daughters, Bridgette, and Kendra, who recently married her soulmate in Bryan.  We enjoy time together as a family,  traveling, biking together in the park, sailing and playing music.  I also enjoy cooking for optimum health, jewelry designing, satisfying my avid curiosity with reading and researching, capturing the wonder of the great outdoors in photography, creating beauty in art or life, and doing anything that inspires my playful spirit!
