Angie Becerra, DC


Dr. Angie Becerra felt a calling to become a chiropractor after being faced with a number of health problems in her early twenties.

Dr. Angie graduated from Parker University where she focused her studies to better serve pregnant women and children in her community. She is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is Webster Technique Certified. Dr. Angie is also knowledgeable in soft tissue techniques, dry needling, and functional taping that are beneficial to athletes and people with repetitive stress injuries.

Kierstn Stolhandske, DC


Dr. Kierstn Stolhandske grew up as a multi-sport athlete where she relied on Doctors of Chiropractic to keep her injury-free and ready for her next event. After working in the fitness industry, coaching, and in child development she knew that she needed to do more for her community.  She found her calling after holding her infant nephew as he was being adjusted for the first time. Feeling the relaxation and relief in his body after a gentle adjustment, she knew chiropractic aligned with her desire to help others.

Being a Bracken Christian School Alumni, Dr. Kierstn is familiar with the rugged nature of the hill country lifestyle.
