Dr. Annelies Wentzel

Hi! I am Annelies (or Anna) and I proudly call Kelowna home. I hold a Bachelor of Human Kinetics from UBC-O, and earned my Doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic, in San Jose, CA.

I have over six years of experience working at EverAthlete Performance, a clinic-gym hybrid in California. My experience also includes a residency position at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Martinez, CA, along with practicing in state of the art Corporate Wellness Centers, including Apple Inc.

Being active and playing sports have been an interest and focus of mine for as long as I can remember. Bottom line – I value my health and make it a priority. I consistently work on this by getting outside for a hike or trail run (with the P.A.C.E. community), staying strong by lifting weights in the gym (ideally at REC!), spending time with my cherished family & friends, and fueling myself with the most delicious Okanagan grown goodies.

Dr. Ben Whiles

Hey there! My name is Ben and I am Okanagan born and raised. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology & Health Science from UBC Vancouver, and earned my Doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic, in San Jose, California.

With over four years of private practice experience, including corporate wellness care at Apple Inc., and a residency position at two Veterans Affairs hospitals in Palo Alto and San Jose, I bring a diverse range of professional expertise to my work.

A former university lacrosse player and varsity rower – I now spend most of my free time on the golf course, in the gym or in the mountains hiking/backpacking and skiing.
