Dr. Steph is a pediatric and prenatal chiropractor and founded the Cafe of Life in order to bring community and connection to local families with a love for natural health care.

She’s extremely passionate about chiropractic care for the whole family and has extensive training in pregnancy, fertility, postpartum, infants and breastfeeding, and is currently training to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She holds advanced certifications in pediatrics and pregnancy through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. With the various types of conditions and ages of our patients she has a deep desire to deliver masterful adjusting skills and has a broad range of adjusting abilities, from the most gentle techniques to the traditional heavier adjusting styles. She and her husband Dean have two kiddos, Aubree born in 2016 and Roland born in 2018. As a mother she’s able to connect with many mothers who have gone through tough times, from miscarriage, to birth plans gone awry, post partum depression, breastfeeding challenges and so much more. The Cafe of Life is much more than your average chiropractic office. It’s a place to connect, bond, and grow… together.

If chiropractic were a love language, it would be hers. She has served on several chiropractic mission trips around the world, she maintains membership with organizations such as the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, International Federation of Chiropractors & Organizations and supports organizations like the Spinal Research Foundation, Life Chiropractic College West and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic Research Facility. If you’re not careful she will nerd-out on all things chiropractic, babies and birth! She also serves on the Board of Trustees of Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery and is the President of a local non-profit birth center within Tourmaline Birth and Wellness Collective, a new birthing center in Pacific Beach.

On her off times you can catch her trekking around Pacific Beach with the kiddos, playing at the parks and beaches and drinking coconut milk lattes. Her parents are Australian and British and you’ll often see them around the office, especially during Christmas when her dad (who is a professional Santa) visits for photos!

Show Notes:

Kelly LeVeque is a holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, celebrity health coach, and the best-selling author of Body Love and Body Love Every Day. Her deep desire to help her clients, her passion for human nutrition, and her curiosity about how and why the body works drive Kelly to diligently study the latest research, evaluate competing theories and use this information to make individualized recommendations for her clients. Most importantly, Kelly’s practical and always optimistic approach to nutrition and wellness helps her readers improve their health, achieve their goals, and develop sustainable habits to live healthy and balanced lives.

Kelly’s website serves as a resource for her readers to find the latest research and rationale behind important nutrition principles, as well as delicious recipes and recommended products to fuel them well. In 2020, she launched the Be Well By Kelly Podcast to further provide listeners with her nutrition and wellness wisdom, and to introduce them to other health professionals with a wide array of experience and insights. With the desire to provide her coaching expertise to the public, Kelly developed the Fab 4 Fundamentals course, in which she simplifies the science of nutrition and empowers participants to confidently take charge of their health. She has expanded her nutrition curriculum to include a second course, Fab 4 Pregnancy, to provide moms-to-be with the wisdom, encouragement, and thoroughly researched recommendations they need to nourish themselves before, during, and after pregnancy. Additionally, Kelly released the Be Well by Kelly Protein Powder to round out the Body Love toolkit. This protein powder harnesses the power and benefits of simple yet wholesome protein and can easily be used in one of Kelly’s favorite tools, the #fab4smoothie. Through all of these resources, Kelly seeks to provide men and women with the tools they need to transform their health and their lives through nourishing whole foods and body-loving practices.
