She practiced for three years on Bainbridge Island, WA before finally settling with her husband in Ontario, Canada.
Dr. Foster is the owner and clinic director of Foster Family Chiropractic & Associates. She has been a practicing chiropractor for the last sixteen years where she has felt immense gratitude for the hundreds of families she calls practice members. During this time she has enjoyed facilitating many workshops, countless educational seminars, mentored practicing chiropractors and published a multitude of articles on a variety of topics. Her chiropractic practice is truly special and reflective of the unique approach that she’s brought forth and the life lessons she has been open to receiving.
Dr. Foster has received numerous awards and nominations. She was the 2003 recipient of the region’s Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award.

As long as Dr. Foster can recall she has always been reaching forward in life. She is an avid runner, yogi and triathlete. She has twice completed the ultra endurance race, Ironman Canada, which she believes is living proof that you can truly accomplish whatever you have the courage to imagine for yourself. Competing in events which require you to dig deep within yourself has inspired her to live her life with a greater sense of spirit.
Dr. Foster has two fabulous children. Parenting has taught her more about love, forgiveness, authenticity, respect and potential than she ever thought possible. Her passion is chiropractic, vegetarian food, sport, quantum healing, adventure travel and human potential.
