Dr. Mikhaila Weister, DC
I was born in Marshfield, Wisconsin but shortly after moved to Appleton, Wisconsin, and currently reside there. Growing up, I was always interested in serving others and studying science, biology, and medicine.
I attended UW-Oshkosh and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I knew I wanted to pursue further education and shadowed a family friend that was a chiropractor in Appleton. After the first day of shadowing, I knew that this was the correct profession and applied to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. I graduated in October 2016 and worked at a local chiropractic office until opening 920 Wellness Studio.
I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. I also worked at a local fitness club as a certified personal trainer while attending chiropractic school. In addition, I specialize in supplementation and am a nutritional consultant for nutraMetrix.
To have the most optimal health and balance, the following three pillars need to be maintained:
- Structural (your physical body)
- Emotional (your emotions and stressors)
- Nutritional (fueling your body with proper nutrients to fuel your cells, tissues, organs, muscles, nerves, etc.)
Chiropractic care addresses the structural misalignments that arise due to daily stressors and repetitive motions/trauma. Maintenance chiropractic adjustments are crucial in obtaining proper alignment and structural care. Emotional stressors are also addressed in the initial wellness consultation. It is important this is addressed and implemented into the wellness education and treatment plans. Nutritional consultations are also available to maintain proper nourishment and make healthy lifestyle choices. Genetic testing and supplementation are discussed in these wellness visits to address all three pillars of health. I believe that holistic care should be implemented first and foremost when treating patients.
Holistic care is ever changing, thus learning never ceases.
I enjoy spending time with my daughter and my family. Some of my hobbies include boating, reading, and playing volleyball.
Allison Eastman, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach
Hi, I’m Allison! I’m a wife, a mom of 3 beautiful little kiddos, and an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. Health and wellness are a top priority in my life as I care for myself and my family. After ups and downs of dieting, weight loss and weight gain, eating well and not eating well through my teens and 20s - I finally got it after having my first child and even more so when cancer and heart disease affected our family.
After three pregnancies and three c-sections, I wanted to eat better, be healthier, and lead by example for my kids. Eating clean, eating quality food, choosing food for its nutritional value instead of counting calories while also nourishing body, mind, and soul…I found my passion in health and wellness. I’ve learned that not only a healthy diet - but also a healthy lifestyle and mindset - will bring you to the balanced, happy, and healthy life you want.
I have previously worked as a cosmetologist and in Human Services working with at-risk youth and Client Services in outpatient mental health counseling. I studied at UW-Fox Valley, Gill-Tech Academy of Hair Design, and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Anja Farin, Midwifery, Lactation, and Arvigo® Supported Pregnancy
I am a Certified Professional Midwife, licensed in Wisconsin. My journey as a birth worker began with my own four births, all of which were un-medicated; one in a hospital setting and three at home. These babies were raised with breast-sleeping, child-lead weaning, attachment parenting, homeschooling, and public schooling. As they are all teens and young adults now, I can assure you that they do eventually sleep in their own beds!
As a doula and childbirth educator, I began serving families in 1997. After some time devoted to the above-mentioned parenting of four busy, growing children, I came back to the work of studying midwifery. I earned my CPM and Wisconsin license in 2010. I began studying the Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy in 2013, taking a total of four-week long classes, including Self-Care, Professional Care, Advanced Pregnancy, and culminating in Certification in the techniques in 2017 with the final class in Belize. I am an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since 2016, though I spent many years in various La Leche League groups gratefully receiving and eventually providing mother-to-mother support for breastfeeding parents.
I have been married to the love of my life since 1991, and my whole family works behind the scenes to make the support of young families possible. In my free time, I love to hike, take photos, knit, sew, and sing.
Sara Trochinski, Yoga Instructor
Hello! My name is Sara Trochinski and I am the yoga instructor at 920 Wellness Studio. I was born and raised in Berlin, WI and I currently reside in Oshkosh, WI. I attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Education and minor in Mathematics. I am a 7th/8th grade Math teacher in Neenah and coach JV volleyball and middle school track - and of course, teach yoga.
Growing up, I always had a strong passion for being active and living a healthy lifestyle. I love helping and inspiring others, both young and old. While suffering from Lyme Disease, I turned to yoga as a way to heal my mind and body. After practicing and experiencing the benefits of yoga for a few years, I knew I wanted to become a yoga instructor to share all that it has to offer. I earned my 200-Hour RYT certification at Wild Abundant Life Yoga in June of 2017. Since then, I have gained experience by teaching group and personal yoga classes, creating and facilitating a kid’s yoga camp, and working with various sports teams. When I am not teaching yoga, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy Target, Starbucks, traveling, the beach, and being outdoors.
Courtney Donati, M.S., Mental Health Therapist
My name is Courtney and I am a Mental Health Therapist at 920 Wellness Studio. I grew up in Berlin, Wisconsin and moved to Dayton, Ohio shortly after I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. I earned my Master of Science in Education and Allied Professionals at The University of Dayton and spent several years living in Ohio. I returned to Wisconsin after a series of deaths in my family.
Even though sadness and huge life changes brought me back to Wisconsin, I am happy to be back and bring a wealth of experiences that I gained while living away from the area. I have always loved working as a counselor; helping others work through the obstacles in their lives is one of the most rewarding experiences for me.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes my daughter and all my fur children!
Courtney Martin, Licensed Massage Therapist
I am originally from northern Illinois. We moved to Appleton in 2015. I have always enjoyed massage, but I especially found relief when I was pregnant and received monthly massages. After a rough labor and delivery with my first son, I was left with a lot of lower back pain. A combination of massage and chiropractic care got me back to feeling great! In fact, that was the driving factor in my decision to become a licensed Massage Therapist.
I graduated from Fox Valley School of Massage Therapy in 2016. I also became a Certified Personal Trainer. I love to learn and continue to take new classes, such as Hot Stone Therapy, Reiki, and Craniosacral Therapy.
After graduating from Fox Valley School of Massage, I worked for three years at Wholistic Health Spa in New London, WI. I was fortunate to work with other talented therapists. In 2017, I had my second son. In the spring of 2019, we finally decided to really make Wisconsin our home and bought a house in Sherwood. I am very excited to now be a part of 920 Wellness Studio team!
Michelle Timmers, Hair Stylist
Hi, my name is Michelle and I have been doing hair since 2008. Originally from Marion, WI, I moved to the Fox Valley area after completing my cosmetology schooling. I married my husband in 2014, and we have four cats.
I would say I specialize in color, as it is my favorite thing to do and it is what fills up 90 percent of my schedule. Education and staying on top of all the current trends are very important to me, so when I am not in the salon I am expanding my education through online classes or hands-on learning at one of the local supply stores. Coloring and cutting are my passions, but I offer an array of services, including facial waxing, smoothing treatments, and makeup! Throughout the past year I have really fallen in love with special event hair and makeup, specifically for weddings. Weddings can be such a stressful day for brides; I love that for the hour or two they are in my chair they are completely relaxed and at peace.
In my free time I enjoy going back home to hang out with my family, visiting to Door County, and curling up on the couch watching some of my favorite shows with my furkids!
Katie Cleveland-Bouressa, Licensed Massage Therapist
My name is Katie Cleveland-Bouressa, and I am the owner of Woodland Soul Massage LLC. I graduated from Fox Valley School of Massage in 2008. I am Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, have 10 years in the industry, and over 130 hours of continued education. As a proponent of holistic healthcare, I believe the use of therapeutic and alternative healing tools is essential for living a happy and healthy life. The focus of Woodland Soul Massage is to assist clients on their unique wellness journey.
My style is a blend of therapeutic and relaxing bodywork with attention given to the client’s preference of pressure. Two of my specialties are Reflexology and Reiki. Reflexology focuses on massaging the acupressure points in the feet and hands. Reiki is energy healing in which hands are placed over the chakras for stress reduction, alignment, and deep relaxation. I also have a passion for working with expectant mothers and offer pre-natal massage designed to comfort and nurture. I create a healing atmosphere with soothing music, lighting, and aromatherapy. Intuitive hands and communication will lead to a rejuvenated soul.
Massage is preventative healthcare. We have an innate ability to heal and it begins with intention. Intention is a concept that I apply to my life and career — it is a presence of mind and the creative power that fulfills the mind/body connection — the application of this philosophy is what makes all the services I provide at Woodland Soul Massage a personal and rewarding experience.
Apart from being a licensed massage therapist, my wonderful husband Jeff and I enjoy nature and adventure. We partake in year-round activities such as hiking, boating, and swimming. We are also fond of singing, dancing, and the arts.
Jennifer Erb, RN and Certified Master Cosmetic Injector
I am a Fox Valley native and have been a registered nurse for over 30 years in our local community. My career in skincare began 30 years ago selling products for skin breakdown which was followed by working in clinical research for personal care products.
In 2001, I found my passion in medical aesthetics. I have over 18 years of experience having performed over 50,000 aesthetic procedures. For the past 12 years I have specialized in cosmetic injections for enhancing facial features and treating signs of facial aging.
I am currently offering Botox® and Dysport® for treating lines and wrinkles caused from movement; a variety of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers including Voluma®, Juvederm®, and Restylane products to help fill wrinkles, restore lost volume, lift and support areas that are sagging; and biostimulatory treatments like Sculptra® to stimulate your own natural collagen and elastin. I am certified in multiple other aesthetic procedures and will be offering some of these services in the near future.
From my years of experience, I have developed an artistic eye. My goal is to enhance your natural beauty without making you look different so that it leaves others guessing, “Does she, or doesn’t she?” I take great pride in treating each client as I would treat my sister or best friend, so I take my time and listen to you.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time outdoors and going to local venues with my two sons, fiancé Jesse, and my extended family and friends. I also enjoy volunteering at church as well as visiting elderly who are homebound and at the warming shelter.
