Meet Dr. Korie Gardner Schofield
Dr. Korie Gardner Schofield: Dr. Korie Gardner Schofield was born and raised in West Bend, WI. She excelled from an early age both in athletics and academics and always had a love for children. In high school, Korie excelled in volleyball and helped her team to win two state championships. From there, she walked on to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It was there that she earned a scholarship and her team won two Big Ten Championships and finished #2 in the country in the NCAA Tournament. After graduating with a degree in communications, Dr. Korie went on to work in Insurance at the Willis Company for 2 years.
From a young age, her own chiropractor, Dr. Gamache, always told her she would make a great chiropractor because of her passion for athletics and helping others. Dr. Gamache passed away suddenly from cancer around the same time that Dr. Korie was feeling unfulfilled at her insurance job. At Dr. Gamache’s funeral, she remembers hearing thousands of people telling stories about the ways in which Dr. Gamache helped them. It was at this moment that Dr. Korie realized how she could make a difference: She decided to go to chiropractic school.
Dr. Korie enrolled at Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa. She excelled in class and became a Presidential Scholar, earning a spot on the International Chiropractic Honor Society and graduating Magna Cum Laude. At Palmer, she met her future husband, Dr. F.J. and they decided to come back to her hometown to start their own practice.
Excited to be back in West Bend and opening a practice, Dr. Korie has since earned certificates in Advanced Nutrition, Orthospinology, and Low Speed Impacts & Injury Mechanisms. Dr. Korie has a passion for helping children and pregnant mothers especially. She is now a mother herself and understands the difficulty of raising a healthy family in the modern world. Her mission is to have the same kind of positive impact on the West Bend community that her chiropractor did. In her free time, Dr. Korie loves exercising, watching the Packers and swimming with her son. Dr. Korie is currently not practicing as she is at home raising her and Dr. FJ’s son Freddie.
