A Desire to Help People

When Dr. Slaney was about 12, she broke her leg. She had to make the four-hour drive to St. John’s to have the complicated break treated. Once fitted for a cast, Dr. Slaney began to see the pediatric physiotherapist to learn how to use crutches. She remembers being struck by the idea that you could have a job where you helped others.

Dr. Slaney studied kinesiology during her undergraduate years at Memorial University of Newfoundland. After a time working in the field, she met a chiropractor who was looking to add a kinesiologist to her clinic. It took just a few more months before she realized that her true calling was to become a chiropractor.

Chiropractic Education and Associations

Dr. Slaney attended Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. She earned the qualification of Doctor of Chiropractic. While there, she worked in the student clinic. This experience allowed her to understand the importance of touch in helping people feel better.

She is a member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Chiropractic Association (NLCA) and the Canadian Chiropractic Association. After having served as the NLCA Secretary for three years, she became President of the Association.

To expand her knowledge in chiropractic, Dr. Slaney has achieved the following:

  • Is a Graston Technique provider
  • Has taken courses in Active Release Techniques® since 2009
  • Is certified in spinal stenosis
  • Training in independent medical examinations from the Canadian Society of Medical Evaluators

Outside of the Practice

Dr. Slaney has been married since 2015. She and her husband have three young daughters, Olivia, Breya and Chelsea. Outside of the clinic, she enjoys being with her family in our community and her in-laws in Ontario.
