Meet the Staff

  • Dr.
    John Watson, DC

    Dr. Watson has been practicing in Morro Bay since 1989. He moved to this area from Los Angeles with his wife and two children. He originally came to California to pursue a career in music after graduating from the University of Michigan where he majored in trumpet performance. After suffering a low back injury and finding relief from a Chiropractic Doctor, he decided to make a career change. He graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic of Los Angeles in 1989. Constantly striving to give his patients the most up-to-date care possible, Dr. Watson is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner, Licensed Qualified Medical Evaluator for the state of California, and a Certified Wellness Practitioner. He is currently working on a certification in Functional Medicine to further help his patients with all their needs. Professionally, Dr. Watson is a member of the California Chiropractic Association, Chamber of Commerce, Foundation for Wellness Professionals, and the International Chiropractic Association. 

     Dr. Watson has always enjoyed sports and martial arts. He likes weight lifting, water skiing, wakeboarding, horseback riding, and lake days with his awesome office staff.

  • Dr. Carrie Silveira, DC

    Dr. Silveira was Dr. Watson’s assistant from 2010 until 2017, when she left for chiropractic school.  She is trained in all the same core techniques as Dr. Watson, Dr. James and Dr. Jenna, and has received additional training in Activator method.  While in school, she developed a special interest in geriatric care and gentle adjusting for more fragile bodies.  She is also currently completing an additional three year diplomate program as a chiropractic internist, which gives a broader perspective into functional medicine. She looks forward to working with the patients she already knows and loves, as well as serving the rest of her hometown community! 

    Dr. Silveira enjoys being in the sunshine in any capacity, hanging out with her family and friends, and pretending like she'll have time to travel one day. 

  • Diane Watson
    Office Manager

    Diane is a specially trained chiropractic assistant and office manager. She is certified in Chiropractic Wellness and Nutrition so she could help patients with their nutritional needs while her husband corrected their structural problems.  Diane loves living on the central coast and is thankful to have been able to raise their two children and 3 grandchildren in this beautiful environment.  Riding horses and walking are a few of her favorite activities.

  • Katie Lasslett
    Patient Relations
    Katie joined our team on Halloween of 2014 and we are never letting her go. Getting hired at Watson Chiropractic was her first experience with chiropractic and even massage, and her view on wellness has completely changed since she started here. She excels at customer service and has also been trained to help with therapy and routing. Before landing at our office, Katie was a slave to the retail world and is probably scarred for life. Katie also excels at all things Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. In her free time she likes to hang out with her man, her dog Petey, and Mad Eye Moody the cat. (He has one eye.)
  • Margaret Pauls
    Doctor's Assistant

    Margaret joined the Watson Wellness Team in January of 2019. Being raised in a family that used a holistic approach to wellness exposed her to chiropractic at a young age. Margaret is also interested in nutrition and completed a certificate program in 2019 to become a Functional Nutritional Therapy practitioner. Margaret loves talking to the Watson patients while performing her doctor assistant duties around the office. Margaret feels at home on the Central Coast even though she moved from Newfoundland in eastern Canada in 2013. Most weekends you will find her and her husband running trails, playing with their chickens, or BBQing with friends and family.
