Hello, my name is Guinness and I am the official office greeter of Grande Ronde Chiropractic Clinic. I walk to work with my dad every morning and I love getting to visit with all of my dad's patients. My favorite place to be is under the desk at reception or in the middle of the floor where I can't possibly be ignored by anyone. I love treats of all kinds, but yogurt and oranges are my favorites!
When I'm not here at work, I love to go on car rides (literally anywhere will do, I just like to go), walk or run with my dad, and hunt for food. My coworkers swear I can hear an orange being peeled from across the office - nothing gets past me! Lots of people think I'm an Irish Setter because I'm a reddish color, but I'm actually a Golden Retriever!
I look forward to meeting you soon!

Christopher Chipman, Receptionist
My name is Christopher Chipman and I’m 25 years old. I was born and raised in Cashmere Washington before I left for college here at EOU. I grew up wrestling, working for a contractor father, playing paintball, SCUBA diving, and even performed in a circus for a few years. I also have a twin and interestingly enough, we were born under the Gemini zodiac symbol. I enjoy rock climbing, hiking, playing video games, drinking microbrew beer and most recently started enjoying snowboarding.

Mia Stoddard, Office Manager/Billing Specialist
Hello, my name is Mia and I am the Office Manager at Grande Ronde Chiropractic Clinic. I graduated from Eastern Oregon University in 2015 with my Bachelors in Science majoring in Organismal and Ecological Biology and minoring in Chemistry.
After graduating, I worked as an Experimental Biology Aid with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for two years. How did I get to managing a chiropractic office? Long story short, I decided to go back to school and I needed a job I could leave for an hour or two to go to class - not an easy task to accomplish when you are hours out in the field! I am currently working here at GRCC and taking classes at EOU and will be applying for Veterinary Schools this summer and fall.
I absolutely love the outdoors and critters of all kinds. I have my own mini-zoo consisting of a horse, a cat, a hedgehog and a leopard gecko (I am absolutely drawn to odd critters) and regularly have to remind myself I couldn't possibly take on anymore critters no matter how badly I may want one. On my days off I can be found hiking, riding my horse, reading a book, baking or who knows what else. I love trying new things and challenging myself.
