Meet Karina Beckham
Hi! I have worked at SLO wellness for almost two years as
one of the chiropractic assistants. I am a local to the San Luis Obispo Area and live in SLO with three roommates and my cat Sampson.
I'm going to Cuesta college and plan to transfer to a university, most likely Cal Poly and stay local in our lovely SLO! My focus is health and wellness so I'm in the public health field while looking at a minor in Anthropology or Psychology. In my free time i stay active! so you can find me hiking or practicing yoga. My hobbies include reading (my current recommendation is the Tao of Pooh, a book about Taoism and uses Winnie the Pooh as a reference! Super cute and a uplifting read) and baking! Chocolate chip cookies all the way!
I'm a HUGE animal lover, vegan enthusiast and i support a positive loving outlook to everything and all people in life!
I hope to eventually make a impact in people's lives with my tools and knowledge in health!
I'm happy to be a part of the SLO Wellness team :)

She is interested in health care and is currently taking prerequisites at Cuesta college so that she can apply to nursing programs next year.
