Prior to becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Maura had a successful career in sales and project management in corporate America. She enjoyed her career but always felt that she was put on this earth for something else. Her physical pain lead her to her new career in chiropractic family health and to living the chiropractic lifestyle. Dr. Maura experienced left hip pain and severe headaches for over three years. This was extremely frustrating for her because she was very fit and active and did not understand why the pain persisted. For three years, Dr. Maura tried to figure out the cause of her pain. She tried everything from going to a general practitioner, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeon, psychologist, neurologists and the list goes on. As a last effort, she saw a chiropractor. She was amazed by the relief she felt from the chiropractic adjustment. Ten months after her first adjustment she enrolled in chiropractic college, convinced of the power of chiropractic and the need to share it with others.
Helping create healthy families is Dr. Maura’s passion. She lives this passion through her work as a family wellness chiropractor. Dr. Maura specializes in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic care. As a female chiropractor, she is passionate about helping pregnant women experience the pregnancy and birth that they desire. As a mother, Dr. Maura knows firsthand how essential chiropractic care is to a healthy pregnancy, easier delivery and healthy baby.
Dr. Maura has always been passionate about the healthy development of children. She believes that all people have the right to be healthy, especially children. It is her opinion that it is a lot easier to grow a healthy child than repair a broken adult. Pediatric chiropractic care is an essential ingredient in growing healthy children. It is this belief that drives her to help the west Denver community realize and understand the need to have their children checked for vertebral subluxations in order to live life to the fullest.
Dr. Maura graduated Magna Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Dr. Maura is Certified from the Academy of Family Practice.

Outside of the practice, Dr. Maura enjoys downhill skiing, yoga, the mountains, learning about fertility, pregnancy and studying the mind-body connection.
