Kara Bonnefoy
I was raised in the beautiful Fraser Valley in Chilliwack, BC. My journey towards becoming a chiropractor began as a teenager, inspired by a particular uncle whose love for chiropractic and natural healing left a lasting impression. Since that time, I graduated from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California, joining the over 40 relatives before me who have committed their lives to helping others through family chiropractic care.Upon moving back to my hometown of Chilliwack in 2006, I joined an existing practice, determined to help those in my own community. I found it completely rewarding watching my clients lives transform due to the restoration of proper nervous system function to themselves and their children. By teaching the benefits of maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system, I encouraged all ages to be a part of the ‘chiropractic lifestyle’. Nowadays, after a small stay in Vancouver, BC and an upgraded training with regards to chiropractic care in pregnancy and infancy through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, I am excited to be settled once again in Chilliwack with my own office, ‘Serenity Chiropractic’. With this next journey underway, I look forward to caring for all of my clients wholeheartedly!

Dr. Joanne Menard
I graduated with first-class standing from Queen’s University with a Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Life Sciences in 2002. I then completed four years of medical training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, graduating in 2006. During this training I had the opportunity to preceptor with breastfeeding expert Dr. Jack Newman at the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic and Institute.

I am passionate about healthy living and believe it is important to provide individualized treatment plans to each of my patients. As a primary health care provider I have experience treating a wide spectrum of conditions from digestive concerns to cardiovascular health and have a special interest in women’s health (menopause, fertility, pre & post natal care, pre-birth acupuncture) and pediatrics, including well-child visits. I have taken additional courses and training in the areas of infertility,acupuncture for pregnancy-related conditions, pre-birth acupuncture, and advanced botanicals training for pregnancy, birth & postpartum.

I am a licensed naturopathic physician with additional training and certification in acupuncture and I am a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the British Columbia Naturopathic Association, and the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia. I am also licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical medication in the province of British Columbia.

I live in Chilliwack with my husband and our two young children. I maintain a part-time practice at the Sardis Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Chilliwack and I am currently accepting new patients.
