Dr. Develle was born and raised in New Orleans but knew she wanted something different. In 1991, she came to Boise for a “temporary” position and quickly fell in love with the abundance of outdoor activities and laid-back lifestyle. It immediately became her home. She enjoys hiking, cycling, white water rafting and all the summer activities Boise has to offer like the Shakespeare Festival and concerts in the park.
She attended the University of Western States, graduating in December 2005. She owned her own practice for several years but desired a more complete, holistic practice. She went back to school at Idaho State University for her Nurse Practitioner degree, graduating in 2013 and started working for St. Luke’s Health System.
Dr. Develle has always believed that most health problems can be avoided with the proper lifestyle choices and nutrition. So when she re-connected with Dr. Woolner and Dr. Allen and they shared their 5 Fundamentals of Health, it was a natural fit to join forces. She loves helping people who want to correct the underlying health problem instead of just treating the symptoms with medication.
Dr. Chad Woolner was raised in Portland, Oregon where he began his college studies originally in preparation to enter dental school. During his prerequisite schooling he and his wife were involved in an auto accident. His wife sustained whiplash injuries and began seeing a local chiropractor. As he accompanied his wife to her appointments he was amazed to see how chiropractic helped his wife. It didn’t take him long to decide that chiropractic was exactly what he wanted to do. After finishing undergraduate schooling, he applied to chiropractic college. Dr. Woolner graduated from the University of Western States in December 2008 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After graduation, he moved to the Meridian area with his wife and children.
Dr. Woolner has done post graduate studies in the management of whiplash injuries, clinical nutrition and is a graduate of the Kalish Institute, one of the premier post graduate training programs for functional medicine. He is also a graduate of the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. He is a member of the Idaho Association of Chiropractic Physicians.
Dr. Allen and his family moved to the treasure valley back in 2002 after graduating from chiropractic college. They put down their roots in Meridian in 2003 and have loved living in this beautiful part of Idaho. Dr Allen Enjoys spending time with his family, camping, fishing, and just about anything in the outdoors. He also enjoys an active role in his community volunteering his talents in the BSA scouting program, leading church youth groups, and serving as president of his neighborhood association.
Dr Allen was introduced (drug by his wife) to Meridian Crossfit in 2013 and has been hooked ever since (he drank the Kool-aide). He and his wife have enjoyed learning Crossfit, making many friends in this community, sponsoring/treating competitive Crossfit athletes, and even participating in a few competitions themselves.
Dr. Allen loves helping people get out of pain but, he especially loves helping people create vibrant optimal health in their lives. He is an accomplished chiropractic physician and has treated thousands of residents in the Treasure Valley for more than 13 years. During the past nine years he has spent hundreds of hours training in the specialty of weight loss, lifestyle and nutrition.
