Meet Dr. Kari Skertich

Dr. Kari and family

A Passion for Health

Dr. Kari always knew that she was meant for a career in the healthcare industry, but was initially stuck on exactly what path it would be. While in college, she had the opportunity to shadow a chiropractor. There, she was able to interact and speak with patients about their own experience with chiropractic care. The responses were overwhelming—Dr. Kari learned that chiropractic had the ability to heal, help people, and most importantly, change lives.

From that moment forward, Dr. Kari felt that becoming a chiropractor was her calling.

The reason I do what I do is to see patient’s transform their lives.


Continuing Education

Dr. Kari's children and dogUpon graduating from Southern Illinois University, Dr. Kari attended Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri, a top chiropractic college. Here, Dr. Kari’s abilities as a doctor began to shine. She learned several different adjustment techniques that allow her to help patients from newborn to 100+.

While in school, Dr. Kari graduated cum laude, made the Dean’s List on multiple occasions, became certified in acupuncture and earned several awards:

• Certificate of Appreciation as Group Leader in the student clinic
• Health Center Achievement Award
• Senior Intern Assistance Award
• Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges

An avid learner, Dr. Kari enjoyed attending numerous seminars during her time at Logan, including one on pediatric chiropractic techniques which allowed her to become certified in the Webster technique, a safe, gentle and effective adjustment method for pregnant women.

Outside of the Office

Dr. Kari and familyWhen Dr. Kari isn’t helping patients improve the longevity of their health, she can be found spending time with her husband, Nick, their daughter, Adelynn, their son, Camden, and their golden doodle, Cooper. Dr. Kari thoroughly enjoys being a part of the Edwardsville and Litchfield communities.  She’s also a proud supporter of the Metro East Humane Society and the Riverbend Down Syndrome Association.
