The 1st Place Chiropractic Team
Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter
“Dr. Kyrie was a teacher when she fell seriously ill with “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” in her early twenties. She was unable to work or even participate in the everyday activities of life. Suffering from constant bodily pain and weakness, memory loss, inability to concentrate, and severe lack of energy she sought care from several medical doctors. She was told she might always be like that. It wasn’t until she started NUCCA care that she got her life back. It was then that Dr. Kleinfelter decided to dedicate her life to helping others with NUCCA Chiropractic.
Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA in 2001.
Dr. Kleinfelter is the sixth chiropractor in three generations in her family. Kyrie’s grandmother became a chiropractor after the birth of her first child (Kyrie’s father). He had seizures that were medically untreatable and it was predicted that he would die. She took him to a chiropractor who adjusted his spine and he never had a seizure again. In addition to Kyrie’s grandmother, her great aunt, great uncle, cousin, and uncle became chiropractors as well.
Kyrie studied with other NUCCA doctors before opening 1st Place Chiropractic in early 2002.
Kyrie was married to her husband Marc in 1995. They have five children, Jacob, Max, Ella, Zoe, and Zachary.”
Dr Alexis Gorman
Dr. Gorman is the associate doctor at 1st Place Chiropractic. She is a 2012 Chiropractic Graduate of National University of Health Sciences. After working a year at trying to build her own practice, she found out about NUCCA Chiropractic. She then shadowed Dr. Kleinfelter for a day and fell in love with the practice and philosophy. When the opportunity arose to be an associate doctor at 1st Place Chiropractic, she jumped at the chance. Since starting in March with 1st Place Chiropractic Dr. Gorman has steadily been building her practice and educating all on the benefits of NUCCA Chiropractic.
“I love what I do. To me, it is truly an honor to be in a position to help others understand what is going on, get them out of pain, and increase their quality of living.”
Dr. Gorman grew up in the Northwest suburbs and is a graduate of Fremd High School. After high school she attended Northern Illinois University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree. Growing up she was always active and played any and every sport growing up. Softball however was her favorite, as she continues to play. Dr. Gorman also loves to cook, run, snowboard, and hot yoga. Currently, some of that is put on a temporary hiatus, because she and her husband are expecting their first son in December.
Debbie Wentzel—Office Manager/Mind reader/MacGyver—For those of you too young to know that reference, it basically means Debbie can fix any problem with a matchstick and a stick of gum! Some of her other super powers include an elephant-like memory, giving directions more precise that MapQuest, and 8 arms, 6 of which move so quickly you’ll never see them. Seriously, she’s kept the office running smoothly and efficiently for 12 years all while having fun.
“I love seeing our patients regain their health through NUCCA care! I encourage everyone to see if they can benefit from NUCCA chiropractic.”
When not in the office Debbie is enjoying the outdoors with her family. She loves to garden, camp, and trek through the north woods. Her more adventurous activities include snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and motorcycle touring back country roads!

If you see her at an event, be sure to stop by and say hi!
In addition to working at 1st Place Chiropractic, Katelyn enjoys spending her time cheering for all University of Arizona teams (Bear Down, Wildcats!), booking trips to new destinations – throughout the US and abroad, and doing any and every outdoor activity!
