Meet the Team
Lindsay | Chiropractic Assistant Superstar
Chiropractic Assistant & Nutritional Ninja
As a certified nutrition consultant, avid gym-goer, yoga-doer, traveler and food lover, I have known since a young age that my calling would be one where I could help others be healthier.
Known as the “mother hen” amongst friends as well as an “old soul” amongst family and colleagues, I’ve been told often that I’m wise beyond my years, nurturing towards others, thoughtful and easy to talk to.
In 2012, I began my invaluable health journey. I became intrigued in improving my overall health and discovered the importance of quality nutrition and an active lifestyle.
In 2013, I became a patient of Dr. Darren’s and from there, I began to see the strong correlation between chiropractic care and maintaining my body at optimal levels.
As I continue to learn more about optimal health, I am overwhelmed by the results so far. I am healthy, energized and have a better relationship with myself than I ever even imagined. Connect with me if you would like to chat nutrition, chiropractic care, and how to maintain an active lifestyle.
Drew | Chiropractic Assistant
Growing up in Calgary, I have always lived a busy life being involved in sports, music, and volunteering. I have played the flute and piano for many years, and have competed in soccer, wrestling, quidditch, highland dance, skeleton, Aussie Rules football, track and field, cross country, and field hockey, to name a few. I also love to spend the weekends hiking in the Rockies.
I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. While at U of S, I competed as a varsity freestyle wrestler on the Huskie women’s team. I am now “retired” and have switched my focus to coaching high school wrestling and giving back to the wrestling community which has given me so much. Following University, I worked as a chiropractic assistant and also volunteered at South Health Campus hospital in the Emergency Department and Mental Health unit.
In September 2016, my fiancé and I boarded a one-way flight to Hong Kong and began our 11-month backpacking journey around the world. We visited 13 countries and tried crazy things like skydiving, sand dune sledding, hitchhiking, scuba diving, couchsurfing, sea kayaking, elephant bathing, caving, and more! Travelling has really taught me how to live in the moment and to be open to all adventures that come my way.
Once I returned, I was eager to get back into a clinic where I could be a part of people’s journey to health and a better quality of life. The opportunity came to work at Douglasdale Family Chiropractic and I have loved every moment since I started in January 2018. This clinic is so special with their dedication to providing exceptional care and service to every practice member who walks in the door.
Paula | Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant
As a lover of food and Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant, I have a passion for finding the root of the problem and creating balance through natural detoxification and nourishing foods. I don’t believe in band aiding health issues when there may be a very simple and natural approach.
If I'm not at the office, I can be found seeking out the best matcha latte in the city, hanging out at the farmers market, painting, hiking with my husband or creating a new recipe!
My personal journey in finding health began in 2010 here in Calgary. I was experiencing poor health in the form of frequent illness, skin issues, hormonal & digestive imbalances. Through research and nutritional therapy I learned that so many of the symptoms and illnesses we experience do not have to be if we do the simple things to take care of ourselves.
This led me to my studies at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in 2012 where I discovered my calling. Through proper food choices, eating habits, physical activity and supplementation I believe our bodies can thrive by design.
In 2015, my business Healthy Roots Nutrition was born, where each day I look forward to helping others achieve a healthy lifestyle! I would love to work with you to improve your quality of life, and allow your body to be as healthy as possible so you can thrive!

Jami | Accounting Manager
I spent the first 20 years of my life living in Yuma, Arizona. I have been working in the business industry for over 8 years. Shortly after college, in 2003 I moved to Northern California where I started my career in the mortgage industry. During that time I not only met my husband Dr. Darren Scheirman but was also introduced to Chiropractic.
For several months I had been suffering from migraines. My M.D. had prescribed me numerous amounts of migraine medication. I quickly became a guinea pig for treatment as nothing seemed to work. All of the tests that I underwent all came up inconclusive. At this point I didn’t know what to do. It had been over 30 days straight of migraine pain.
Due to my frustration with the medical system I decided to go to a chiropractor. I met Dr. Scheirman and he suggested that I stop taking all of the medications. First of all, they didn’t seem to be helping my condition anyway, and second, they may have actually been one of the triggers of the migraine. I was always very open to chiropractic and made a decision to give it a try…. 100% of my attention. With the support of Dr. Scheirman I stopped taking all medications and focused myself towards a wellness approach. After numerous weeks of consistent chiropractic care, my migraine started to subside. Soon after, my migraine disappeared.
I do still get migraines from time to time, but Chiropractic care is the reason for their dramatic decrease. I now know the importance of chiropractic care in not only alleviating symptoms but allowing me to live a normal life. It feels great to have my life back, and to have control over my migraines rather have them control me.
Because I have seen the value in chiropractic I look forward to helping you in any way that I can. I look forward to meeting you and seeing you achieve your health goals!
