Dr Jolene Cooney - North Lakes Chiropractor

Jolene Cooney is a passionate chiropractor, avid reader and researcher, continually curious and constantly in wonder and awe of how amazing the human body is. A self proclaimed nerd, Jolene is a regular at conferences and seminars always updating her knowledge especially in the field of paediatrics, neurology and nutrition. 

Jolene’s journey into Chiropractic started with her Aunt, she was and still is an amazing chiropractor. Through her Aunt’s care and later working as a receptionist at her practice, Jolene knew she wanted to be just like her. From high school it was straight to the University of Queensland to complete Jolene’s Bachelor in Science majoring in Anatomy and Physiology.

From there Jolene moved to Sydney to complete her Masters in Chiropractic. Upon graduating she worked at Chiro Care for Kids in Sydney for 2 1/2 years working closely with a mentor to up skill in her chosen field of interest, paediatrics. In 2006 Jolene moved back to her home town of Brisbane and eventually settled in North Lakes.

Jolene’s other great loves are her family and travel. She is happily married to her high school sweet heart and they have two kids (her greatest teachers), and one fur baby (just to keep life more interesting and chaotic) together.

Bronwyn (Bron) Miller began her chiropractic journey in high school when she started regular chiropractic treatment and went on to become a chiropractic assistant at the clinic. It was here that she was exposed to the wide range of benefits that chiropractic can bring to people of all ages. 

Bron then went on to become a registered nurse, working in both private and public hospitals, she settled into both emergency and oncology care.  During this time she thought there had to be more to health care than hospitals and she made the decision to move to Melbourne and study at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, graduating with a Bachelor Health Science (Chiropractic) and a Masters of Clinical Chiropractic.

Outside of the clinic, Bron loves to visit the beach and markets and she is a proud dog mum to Harold. 

Bron is currently on maternity leave and will return later 2024.

Dr Harry graduated from Central Queensland University in Brisbane with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and a Master of Clinical Chiropractic. 

Harry’s love for chiropractic stems from years of personally experiencing the benefits of healthcare that chiropractic offers. He was an avid tennis player during his formative years and credits chiropractic care for maintaining his performance on the court.

He believes in addressing the underlying cause of pain and dysfunction, establishing personalised care plans, and providing his patients with the tools to take an active role in their health journey. His motivation is to serve, educate and empower the community regarding their innate capacity to restore function, heal, and achieve optimal health.   

Harry is well-versed in a wide range of chiropractic techniques including diversified manual adjustments, soft tissue therapy, sacro-occipital technique (SOT), trigenics, drop piece, activator instrument, functional exercises, and tailored lifestyle advice.  

Outside of practice, Harry enjoys going for coffee, working out at the gym, and going for walks with his sausage dog Mimi!
 
I’m Leticia, and I invite you to join me on a journey towards improved health and wellness.
 
Originally from Brazil, my passion for healthcare began as a nurse in an intensive care neonatal unit. However, it was a pivotal moment – my first chiropractic adjustment – that set me on a new path. This experience illuminated the transformative power of chiropractic care, igniting a passion within me to become a chiropractor and dedicate myself to promoting health and well-being for people of all ages and backgrounds.
 
Seeking to expand my knowledge and embrace a healthier lifestyle, I made the life-changing decision to move to Australia in 2015. Here, amidst the captivating beauty of this country, I not only discovered a better quality of life but also found invaluable opportunities to deepen my understanding of chiropractic care.
 
In my chiropractic practice, I take a holistic approach, considering all aspects of health.  I strongly believe in the importance of exercise as a fundamental component of overall well-being, tailored to each individual’s specific needs. Through personalized care, I strive to uncover and address the root causes of health issues, empowering my patients to live their best lives. 
 
Outside of my practice, I am an avid enthusiast of an active lifestyle. You’ll frequently find me at the gym or by the beach with my partner and friends, engaging in activities such as swimming or stand-up paddling.

Trudy - Director of First Impressions

Trudy loves to take care of people from the moment they walk through the door at Ohana. Just call her the Director of First Impressions!

She started her CA (Chiropractic Assistant) journey in Melbourne where she enjoyed working for two chiropractors and an osteopath.

Trudy’s husband’s work commitments brought her to Brisbane where they have now lived for over 15 years. After working for 7 years as a CA in Brisbane she decided a change was in order. Trudy bloomed in a new career in floristry and owned her own business.

After a time, the wellbeing field called her back and she began working in reception at a natural therapies clinic before joining the Ohana team.

Trudy has two amazing adult children who are the light of her life, not to mention Cooper, her very cute fur grandchild.
