Samantha Hedrick

Chiropractic Assistant/Health Coach


I am Samantha. I recently moved to Waukee with my husband and my two amazing kids. I began working at Waukee Wellness and Chiropractic in October of 2019. I came to work at Waukee Wellness as CA, But plan to bring my background in nutrition and fitness to the team. I have my bachelors degree in nutrition science and I am a certified personal trainer. I am excited to bring health coaching to Waukee Wellness as another offered service to help patients on their health journey. Outside of work I enjoy being outside playing with my kids and husband, working out, and exploring what Des Moines area has to offer.

Chiropractic Assistant


Hi, my name is Victoria and I was born and raised in Missouri. I’m fairly new to Iowa after moving from Lake of the Ozarks! I graduated from Missouri Western State University in 2018 with my B.S degree in Health and Exercise Science. Health and wellness has always been my passion which is why I love working at Waukee Wellness and Chiropractic. Seeing the progress of our patients on a day to day basis is the highlight of my week! I believe chiropractic and massage therapy is the most prominent way to heal the body naturally, along with exercise and good nutrition. I’m so grateful to be a part of an amazing team who truly cares about the well being of others.

Katie Nyberg

Prenatal/Post-Partum Consultant


I am married to Dr. Wes and Waukee Wellness is definitely a family business! While you might occasionally see me in the office with our boys getting adjusted (or decorating for a holiday!), I spend time working on social media and education for our patients. I work primarily as a labor doula, postpartum doula, childbirth/new parent educator, and doula trainer through my personal business, The Iowa Baby Lady. If you are a pregnant patient in our office, be sure to let Dr. Wes know if we can be of any help. I love talking to patients about their birth options in Des Moines and staying comfortable during pregnancy and birth!

Mental/Behavioral Health Therapist


Originally from Cedar Rapids, I moved to the Des Moines area in 2013 after graduating from the University of Iowa with a master’s degree in social work. My personal passion for health and wellness led me into the field of medical social work where I have spent the majority of my career.
