Lise Ritter - Office Manager, Chiropractic Assistant
Lise is a long time advocate of regular chiropractic care, which began at the age of 18, to correct a significant spinal curvature that was causing a number of health issues. With regular adjustments, over time the spine was restored and the health issues she had been experiencing were resolved.
Through her journey of healing and passion to learn, she came to understand the importance of treating the body, mind and spirit as a whole, since they are intrinsically inseparable.
She is especially passionate about the powerful potential to heal through whole food nutrition.
Lise is a Reiki Master, Holistic Health Practitioner and brings over 30 years of office administration skills to our practice. She is a perpetual student and is always eager to share her vast experience and knowledge with our patients.
Sharon Heslip Kennedy - "Superstar" Chiropractic Assistant ...and Dr. Paul's wife
"Every day I am inspired to go to our Chiropractic & Laser Centre and look for more ways to serve our patients -- A smile, a hug, a thoughtful word, or simply just listening. Over the years, I have seen many miracles occur with Dr. Paul at our Centre. I am very grateful to the chiropractic profession because it has meant so much in my life. Chiropractic relieved the many pains I had in adolescence that medicine had no solution for (migraines and 'growing pains'). It has taken me on a life journey of health, wellness and true healing. Because of this, I am living a healthy life and can pass my knowledge and experience on to others so they too can discover wellness through chiropractic."
Like her Grandmother and Mother before her, Sharon is a third generation Chiropractic Assistant. She has been involved with the chiropractic profession for over thirty-five years. After graduating from Centennial College's Medical Secretarial Program, fate would have it that she began her career as a Chiropractic Assistant. She concurrently served as Recording Secretary for the Council on Chiropractic Education (Canada) (CCE) for 15 years. She is a practicing Reflexologist and has a passion for wellness related knowledge. She is constantly studying, attending seminars and reading. She LOVES her job as a Chiropractic Assistant for the North Bay Chiropractic & Laser Centre. She is Dr. Paul Kennedy's wife and a mother of one. Her favourite hobbies are Belly Dancing, which she has studied for over fifteen years, Gardening, Hiking, Photography and Kundalini Yoga.
Julie Rioux - Registered Massage Therapist
When Julie experienced her first massage, an amazing calmness and sense of rightness occurred to her as she got off the table. She loves the fact that her work is important, stress reducing, flexible, challenging, empowering, helpful, rewarding, and fun – overall an awesome calling she is proud to be a part of. Since becoming a RMT she has experienced both increased health and general contentment, and a more positive outlook on life by working with similar minded practitioners. Her mission is to support individuals in achieving life balance through personal wellness.
Julie has been a Registered Massage Therapist working in North Bay soon after she graduated from Sutherland-Chan Schools Inc. in 2004 and has experience working with a variety of conditions using Swedish massage techniques and other modalities. She will soon be adding Matrix Repatterning to her repertoire of techniques to further help her clients.
Outside of the treatment room, Julie can be found practicing yoga, reading, networking in the community, spending time with family and friends and pursuing her personal goals.
Maria White - Chiropractic Assistant
As a graduate in Microbiology and Genetics from the University of Wales, Maria has been interested in healing and health for many years. She came to Canada from Great Britain intending to stay for just a couple of years but fell in love with North Bay and its wonderfully hospitable, friendly people. She often says, 'I just love our patients' and has been working at this Chiropractic Centre for almost 3 years! She has three children and enjoys being a grandmother of three beautiful grandchildren.
Kathleen Kennedy - Office Consultant
"At the age of nine, I was part of the polio epidemic, which left me with a crippled leg and a neck that could not bend. Medicine had nothing to offer, and in desperation my parents turned to a chiropractor for help. It worked! I was soon walking and bending and able to return to school. I have relied on chiropractic for my health ever since. Medicine may mask symptoms but chiropractic allows the body to heal itself. I married a chiropractor and happily assisted in his office for many years. It was a joy to watch nervous New Patients enter the office and leave elated, having found the help they so badly needed."
After graduating Teachers College as a Primary Specialist, Kathie taught Kindergarten. She later took over managing the Kennedy Chiropractic Wellness Centre working along side her husband the late Dr. George E. Kennedy (father of Dr. Paul). Because of her many years of experience with chiropractic, even though she is officially retired, she agreed to continue to act as a Practice Consultant.

I'm on the computer many hours every day. My back & neck were killing me. I was getting regular migraines. My doctor told me I had carpel tunnel. After the first treatment with Dr. Paul, I started to feel better. Within a few treatments my migraines stopped. At this point the numbness in my hands is almost gone. I feel fantastic! Thanks for everything - Dr. Paul is one of the best chiropractors in Toronto and this is one of the best decisions I've ever made about my health.
