Dr. Mattern came to Canada in 1968 from a small town in western New York State, with a degree in Fine Art from the University of Buffalo.
After working several years in the UBC Library and then as a “lady logger” in Sayward and Kelsey Bay, she went back to school in Toronto to become a Chiropractor in 1977.
Since graduating in 1981, Dr. Mattern has been in full time practice in Nanaimo.
She loves to sing and is a member of Camerata Singers, as well as a member of Nanaimo Daybreak Rotary and the Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Mattern’s focus is evidence-based chiropractic for the whole family, from pediatrics to geriatrics. You are never too young or too old to benefit from Chiropractic.
Custom foot orthotics are prescribed by Dr. Mattern by The Orthotic Group (www.tog.com).
