  • Jennifer S.
    Billing Specialist

    ~ I am proud to call myself Alaskan! I grew up in Soldotna, Alaska and attended the University of Alaska Anchorage where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and a minor in Psychology. I have been employed in the medical field since 2006. I have worked at hospitals in both Alaska and Oregon, with experience in family practice and surgery scheduling. I moved to Portland in 2008 and became certified as a chiropractic assistant. I joined Dr. Bodtker when he became the owner of Symtrio Chiropractic in 2012. I am committed to providing you with the very best service and quality of care. I believe that includes making sure you understand the financial aspect of your health care. Health care coverage is continually changing and can be very confusing. It is my mission to make sure there are no financial surprises regarding your services with us. Please feel free to call to schedule an appointment or discuss your account with me at any time. On my free time you can find me creating artwork, locating new restaurants & wineries. My husband, chocolate lab, and I are always searching for the perfect spot to pitch a tent in Oregon’s great outdoors.
