Dr. Kennedy was born and raised in Southern California. His first experience with chiropractic was as a senior in high school when he took a field trip to the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC) in Whittier, CA. He was so impressed with the facilities and all of the things a Chiropractor could do, that he signed up for their weekend course to become Certified Chiropractic Assistant. It was during this course that he fell in love with the profession and decided to devote his life to it. Many years later, while in his first years of practice, he felt a call to service and enlisted in the United States Army.
After 4 years in the service he decided to further his education and enrolled in the Acupuncture program at his alma mater, now called Southern California University of Health Sciences (LACC). After he graduated with his Masters degree he moved to Oregon to experience all that life in the Pacific Northwest had to offer. (This was an easy decision as he had been visiting Keizer for about 5 years and just fell in love with the kindness of the people and the natural beauty of the area.)
Heresco Chiropractic allows Dr. Kennedy to care for his patients with compassion and to provide the kind of high quality health care that people deserve. He is able to give them his full attention and the best experience every single visit. Every day is a reminder that chiropractic care is a wonderful and powerful way of restoring function to peoples bodies and lives. At home Dr. Kennedy and his wife, Jill, has a very neurotic Australian Shepherd named Snickers and two alley cats, Princess and Pie, that love to go on walks and get a little too excited about other pets. Dr. Kennedy also loves to hike and just be in nature. He enjoys table top and card games and loves to spend time with friends.
