In Good Hands chiropractor: practice opens in Wolfeboro with assistance from WEDCO
Dr. Renee Tetreault cites whole body, whole life benefits of chiropractic care
WOLFEBORO — Just in time for those New Year’s resolutions for better health, Dr. Renee Tetreault opened In Good Hands Chiropractic, PLLC, on Elm Street, an endeavor brought forth with many local helping hands, in fact.
After earning her Doctorate of Chiropractic at Life University in Marietta, Georgia, and spending the requisite amount of time earning credit hours and passing four national boards to become licensed, Dr. Tetreault set her sites on opening her own practice in Wolfeboro. She chose Wolfeboro as her husband, Matt Tetreault, works as a guidance counselor at Tuftonboro Elementary School and she also worked locally at other chiropractic practices – filling in for vacations and such -- after earning her license. In March 2016, she “jumped in with both feet,” and when she met with a business mentor from SCORE Lakes Region, he recommended she speak with the Wolfeboro-based WEDCO [Wentworth Economic Development Corp.], a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and support businesses and the creation of employment opportunities by providing development assistance and financing.
