Janelle Lester

Clinic Director

Originally from northern California, Janelle has been a part of four MaxLiving offices, in three different states, now spanning 15 years. Though she started as a patient, due to an auto accident, it was only the beginning of a journey.

Two years after graduating University, Janelle’s adventures took her from northern California to the sauna known as central Florida where she continued her patient care and joined a MaxLiving team in Orlando. If you’re going to spend 10 years in the sauna (Florida) then you may as well experience the frozen tundra as well, right? Janelle was invited to run her second clinic and moved to Minnesota in March of 2015 - just in time to still be able to walk out on a frozen lake!

Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue, Adrenal Fatigue, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Migraines… these were the diagnoses given to Janelle to go with all of the symptoms she was experiencing. After seeing many specialists, enduring all their testing, and many blood tests later, each doctor gave her their respective diagnosis, with a prescription, and said they could not help her. Discouraged and skeptical, she started her MaxLiving journey - slowly implementing the 5 Essentials. With time, all symptoms ceased, health was restored, and quality of life was higher than she'd known. After experiencing how much corrective chiropractic changed her life, she was excited to join the mission and team in Orlando. She’ll be sharing the message of hope and healing the rest of her days.
