A message from Dr. Jenny Mejia, Chiropractic Physician:
Chiropractic in my family goes back to the 1950’s. My great grandmother, Georgia Anderson had high blood pressure and allergies. She had tried traditional medicine, but nothing seem to help. She figured she needed to try something. She found out about Chiropractic and began going their secretly. My great grandmother was treated by Sid Williams when he was a student. My grandmother was a school teacher who began getting terrible migraine headaches. When my grandmother; Irene Nelson, was sick with migraine headaches her mother Georgia insisted that she try Chiropractic care. My grandmother was skeptical in the beginning, but she began receiving chiropractic care and was amazed how much better she was doing. Her great results under Chiropractic care made her decide to become a Chiropractor herself. She ended up working as BJ Palmers head secretary. My grandmother, Irene Nelson graduated from Palmer School of Chiropractic in 1959. My grandmother was one of the first to get an Illinois Chiropractic license. It was a test that was taken with the medical doctors at the time. Since my grandmother got such great results under Chiropractic, she had the entire family under care.
My mother and her brother both decided to become Chiropractors. My mother; Dr. Glenda Foy, graduated from Palmer in 1975. My Uncle; Dr. Gaylor Nelson, graduated from Palmer in 1977. My parents began attending Parker Chiropractic Seminars together. My dad; Robert Mejia Jr, couldn’t believe how motivational the seminars were. My father was concerned that he might be too old to attend Chiropractic School. One of his Chiropractic friends, Dr. Gary Seibert said to him, “How old will you be if you don’t attend school? and How old will you be if you do?” My father started Chiropractic school when he was 43 years and graduated in 1989.
I am originally from a small town in Illinois. I went to Augustana College in Rock Island, IL for my undergraduate degree. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Speech Communication, Pre-Med and a minor in Scandinavian Studies. I decided after a year of working in marketing that I would like to pursue my dream of becoming a Chiropractor. I was very fortunate because I had been under Chiropractic care since the day I was born.
I decided to move to Port Orange, Fl to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida campus. I received a scholarship from the World Congress of Woman Chiropractors in 2008. I graduated from Palmer in 2008. I moved back to Illinois for a short period before moving to Tampa, Florida. I worked as an Independent Contractor before opening up Active Family Chiropractic, PA in November of 2014. In 2014, I received the Parker Seminars award of Chiropractor of the Year. I have also received the award of GTO from Parker Seminars. In 2016, I was nominated as Tampa Bay Woman of the Year.
I am blessed to have a successful practice where I see families, pregnant mothers, children, auto accident patients, and athletes. I love to travel the world when I can. I am very involved in a lot of different organizations. I am an active member of the Florida Chiropractic Association. I enjoy being involved in the Westchase Area Business Association (WABA), Professional Philanthropy Network (PPN) of Tampa Bay, and Woman in Networking (WIN) of Tampa Bay. I am on the board for the World Congress of Woman Chiropractors. I am on the board for the Sigma Phi Chi Sorority, the Oldest Chiropractic Organization.
