Dr. Joe Kelley
My name is Dr. Joe Kelley and most of our patients just call me Dr. K. I was born in the Seattle area and have lived here most of my life. Besides my California adventure for graduate school I have stayed true to my Northwest roots! My education background reaches from Interlake High School, to Western Washington University, to California State University at Hayward, to Palmer Chiropractic College West…what a journey it was.
I truly believe my learning will never stop—whether it be through my continuing education seminars, growing and healing with my patients, or just watching my daughters learn and grow. As one of my rock heroes once said… “I thought I taught the world, turns out the world taught me.” That being said, it has been and will always be my purpose “to educate, check and adjust as many families as possible toward optimal health through natural chiropractic care.”
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help people improve their lives, extend their lives and to participate in their family’s overall wellness. Health is our most priceless asset and it will always be my mission to help our community (and ultimately the world) naturally restore and maintain their health at an optimal level. As a former stock car driver, I was brought into my first chiropractor’s office following a very serious racing accident in 1992. My healing experience change my life and I immediately decided to shift my career path from engineering to the field of chiropractic health. I have devoted my life to helping others regain their lives!
I currently live in Woodinville with my lovely wife Yohko (my rock), my two daughters, Amber and Lexi (my inspirations), and our dog Jake. Family is the most important thing in the world and I feel lucky to have mine! I hope when our paths cross some day we are both able to teach each other something.
