Diane Watson- Office Manager
Diane Watson grew up in a household where health was important. While studying dance in college, Diane had to drop out after contracting Mononucleosis. This was the first time she realized how being ill can take away all your dreams, and she became dedicated to knowing more about health and fitness. After gaining her health back, she made a career change. She decided she wanted to help people live healthier lives. She started working at a fitness center, teaching classes, customizing workout programs and counseling people on good nutrition. She became more focused on helping people lose weight, and for the next four years she helped hundreds of people achieve their weight loss goals, rewarded by watching them become healthier, happier people. She supervised many locations for a major weight loss organization, and in the process, discovered how stress can affect us as well. It was time for a change, which would start with a back injury while at work. Diane discovered the benefits of Chiropractic after her first treatment. Shortly after, Dr. Watson had a calling to go to Chiropractic school. After his graduation, Diane began to receive more nutritional information and attended classes to become a Chiropractic Assistant. She also received a certificate in Chiropractic Wellness and Nutrition so she could help patients with nutritional needs while her husband corrected structural problems. Diane still loves to dance. She spends most of her free time being outdoors wakeboarding and hiking, and especially horseback riding.
Carrie Silveira- Doctor's Assistant
Carrie graduated from Sonoma State University in 2005 with a degree in Theater Arts, specifically concentrating in Stage Management. She then promptly spent the next eight years working in the medical field and completely ignoring her college degree. She is a certified Massage Therapist, graduating from California Holistic Institute in San Luis Obispo in 2007. After obtaining her certification, Carrie became much more interested in a holistic approach to medicine and wellness. She has been seeing Dr. Watson since she was a teenager for chronic headaches, and is a firm believer in the power of natural healing. She finally got the opportunity to work in the field when she was hired at Watson Chiropractic. Carrie has held every position there, from therapy assistant, to Dr.’s assistant, to the front desk. On her days off, Carrie is rearranging the furniture, painting, going on adventures, hanging out with her best friend Heather, or taking a twisted pleasure in cleaning all the things. She lives in Atascadero with her two kitty children, one human child, and one adult male....child.
