DR. KRISTIN OCHS, DC
Kristin moved to Portland in 2001 and has never found a reason to leave. She absolutely loves it in the Pacific Northwest!
Before becoming a chiropractor, Kristin worked as a Personal Trainer and Fitness and Nutrition Director for a local gym. She worked mainly with special populations, utilizing her certification in corrective exercise.
Watching what the body was capable of when given the proper tools inspired her to return to school for her education in human biology and chiropractic.
She received her B.S. and D.C. from the University of Western States here in Portland, Oregon.
Kristin is passionate about helping each patient reach their maximum potential without asking them to stop doing what they love – working to modify their activities until they’re able to do them fully again. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself and Kristin strives to harness that.
In her spare time, she enjoys karaoke, playing pool, trying new restaurants, and spending quality time with her husband and young daughter. Kristin is also active in the community, volunteering as a fundraiser for Cascade AIDS Project. You will frequently find her at various events promoting equality for mankind.
Ariel has been with Renew Chiropractic for three years, and in addition to her duties at work, she is a part-time nursing student as well. Her schedule may be busy, but she finds plenty of time to answer questions, run the front desk, and greet each patient with a smile.
Ariel is bilingual and does her best not to laugh when the attending physicians also attempt to speak Spanish with patients.

Luna joined the team just over one year ago, and already her skill and enthusiasm have made her a patient favorite at the clinic. Luna is intuitive and unafraid to improvise when she performs body work, which are critical skills to possess when working on acute injuries.
Luna Lives in Northeast Portland with her husband, her daughter, her fluffy dog, and her hula hoops; when not working at the clinic, Luna can be found dancing and hooping at Portland's most popular venues.
