  • Dr. Megan DeJana, DC

    Dr. Megan DeJana was born and raised in Kalispell, Montana. She continues to claim that you can take the girl out of Montana but not the Montana out of the girl. Dr. Megan started her migration west to attend Boise State University. She studied and graduated with a bachelors of science in Human Kinesiology. Dr. Megan had the privilege of interning at the prestigious Idaho Sports Medicine Institute where she discovered that she did not want to pursue a career as an orthopedic surgeon but that she had a love for manual medicine and caring for patients. Chiropractic found her during this time, and after a visit to the campus of Western States Chiropractic College (currently University of Western States) Dr. Megan had found her calling.

    Dr. Megan graduated Valedictorian of her class in December, 2005. After the birth of her first child, she discovered a deep passion for caring for pre/post-natal mothers and pediatrics. She started her Diplomate program in Family Wellness through the ICPA, and she has enjoyed serving the Hillsboro community for the past eight years. Dr. Megan opened her practice, Active Wellness Chiropractic, in 2014 and looks forward to caring for the greater Portland, Beaverton and Hillsboro communities.

    In her spare time, Dr. Megan enjoys spending time with her husband Adam and their three beautiful children. She is blessed to be called mom by Mia (5), Elyn (4) and Grey (infant). The Pacific Northwest is their playground and the family enjoys wakeboarding, skiing, and hiking together. Dr. Megan is an avid runner and enjoys running half marathons and hood to coast. The family lives a whole foods, Paleo lifestyle and believe that nutrition and exercise are essential to their Active Wellness.

  • Katie Briggs, MSPT, CD, CIMT

    From a young age, Katie knew she wanted her profession to involve working with kids. She received her Masters of Science in PT from Boston University in 1999, and has since worked with children of all ages in a variety of settings. Over the past decade, she has become a Certified Labor Doula and Certified Infant Massage Teacher and her physical therapy practice has gradually narrowed to focus on younger children.

    Katie now works with infants, toddlers, and pre-school aged children, helping kids with developmental delay as well as neurological and orthopedic conditions. She focuses on therapy that is developmentally appropriate and fun for the child, and helps caregivers learn to facilitate their children’s development. Katie believes strongly in helping all kids reach their full potential in order to live healthy, fun-filled lives.

    When she is not treating patients and working with families, Katie can be found cheering on her own kids at various sporting events, trying to grow new fruits and veggies in her backyard, exploring Portland’s waterways on her stand up paddleboard, or curled up with a good book.
