Who We Are

The Board

Our Board consists of selfless individuals whose service continues to go above and beyond.  These are the people who make sure we are reaching those in need and these are the people who make sure your experience is unforgettable.

Dr. Jason Gerard

President, CEO, Executive Board Member of ChiroMission, Inc.

ChiroMission has forever changed my life on how I view my practice, my life, and how I serve people everyday. Every trip came with the opportunity to experience a piece of the true essence of what we deliver through chiropractic with our hands and our heart.

I am often known for the one who’s sent on rogue missions to “parts unknown”, only to come back with stories only novels could describe. The stories are endless; an 8 year old with the dislocated shoulder who can now use it again, the paraplegic who regained feeling in his hands after one adjustment, the surgeon with relieved daily headaches who made every nurse get adjusted before their next surgery. So yes there are endless stories of our impact but that’s just a day in the life of a ChiroMissionary serving.

Spreading the message of chiropractic is my passion, and leading a community to true health and wellness is my goal.

Dr. Jason runs a family-based, wellness-based, correction-based, cash-based office serving thousands in Lakewoods, MN since 1999.

Dr. Aura Tovar
Vice President

The miracles I have witnessed through the thousands of ChiroMissionaries that have served on a ChiroMission trip and all the people that we have helped are countless.  I am so proud to call myself a Chiropractor and it’s refreshing to see the impact that Chiropractors, volunteers and families have done in the name of love, service and the pure Chiropractic principle.

My first trip took me completely out of my comfort zone and showed me a new perspective and I left that trip in 2008 with a newfound passion.   To me, there is no better way to spread the message of chiropractic and humanitarian work.

It give me great pleasure to help in taking ChiroMission to a whole new level of service in different countries while leaving a permanent mark for Chiropractic and humanitarian work.

Dr. Aura is a graduate of Life University 97’ and has running a practice in Miami since 2003.

Jeffrey Cobelli 
Creative Director

In 2008, I never would have guessed that my first trip on ChiroMission would open doors to countless new opportunities. This trip allowed me to see things that I could change in my own life and how I could have an impact on the lives of others as well.  It was the inspiration to get healthy, to start my own film and video company to ultimately focus on doing good for others.   For almost 10 years I have filmed hundreds and hundreds of chiropractors, students and volunteers go through the experience of a ChiroMission trip and each trip gives me a new inspiration.

Sounds selfish right?

My intention on these trips is always to give.  Each trip, as I have learned, you will get more and more back in return and you’ll hear so many of our Chiromissionaries tell you the exact same thing.  And you will see that too after you come on one of our trips.  So watch some of our videos, follow us on facebook and become a part of the ChiroMission family.

Jeffrey is a 06’ Emerson College graduate and has been producing films and videos for the last 7 years with his company, Good For You Productions, based in Westchester, NY.

Dr. Deb Morrone 
Secretary

It is my honor to serve on and with the Board of ChiroMission.   My first trip in 2009 was just not going to be enough. Staying committed to local and international service not only is a priority, it is something that gives me great joy.

Leading ChiroMission teams to Haiti, the Dominican Republic and to St Vincent and the Grenadines reassures my purpose to giving as I get to see the impact on the people we serve and the people we lead into these less fortunate environments.

Dr. Deb graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2000, and has been practicing in Frederick, MD since 2002. Dr. Deb currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Frederick Jaycees and the Rotary as President of the Fredericktowne Rotary Club.

Dr. Tiffany Kelly
Treasurer 

Throughout my life I have been passionate about service and I’ve been dedicated to Chiropractic so to be a part of ChiroMission trips was a no-brainer. I consider it a true honor to work with people from all walks of life and encourage them along their road to healing.

ChiroMission has been that opportunity to combine my academic mind and my passion for service.  Spending two of my school breaks serving underprivileged communities in the Dominican Republic with ChiroMission showed me the type of doctor I wanted to be and the trips taught me how to love and serve outside of my comfort zone; I learned the importance of trust and the necessary selfless heart it takes to best care for people.

I am so blessed and so excited to be part of this team as Treasurer and working towards a world of wellness.

Dr. Tiffany has been practicing in Southern Florida since 2012

Dr. James Judge

My love for Chiropractic began from the influence of my greatest mentor, my Grandfather. I am very passionate about teaching the world what true health and true healing really looks like!   I look at my fellow ChiroMission doctors and volunteers as an extended part of my family! We get to travel the world doing what we love and experience things too amazing for words!

Dr. Nikoleta D. Alexander
Special Liason to St. Vincent and the Grenadines

I was at a seminar and saw the call to action for ChiroMission in the Dominican Republic, and I said,” This is it!” I could have made a number of excuses, such as time, distance, scheduling and money, but I came to the realization that I have been blessed beyond measure with the gift to deliver the chiropractic adjustment and now it was time for me to give love and serve out of my own abundance. It was time that I shared this gift with others beyond those that live in my town. After all, we are all God’s people.

I love ChiroMission

Dr. Kalie Judge
Special Ambassador

I believe that spreading the true message of health is my purpose so wherever I can share that message you can count me in.  Mission trips give me the ability to reach more people than I could have ever imagined.

Sue Judge
Special Ambassador

Ever since my first mission trip I have been hooked.  When you see the smiles on their faces you feel like you’re receiving more than you give.  There is no better feeling than service, and for that I want to do all I can.
