Snoqualmie chiropractor working on family guide to outdoor activities

Chiropractor Tiffany Green talks growing business and working on an outdoor activites book.

Working as one half of Snoqualmie Optimal Health Chiropractic, Tiffany Green has followed in her father’s footsteps as a chiropractor and is a prospective author working on an outdoor guide to the Valley.

Green works with her husband Jason at their business Snoqualmie Optimal Health Chiropractic on the Snoqualmie Ridge. Their own business was born from a desire to serve the community and work in the place they live.

Majoring in sports and exercise science at Western Washington University and attending Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California, Green said that she was drawn to the profession due to growing up with a father who worked as a chiropractor.

In her family, she said, chiropractic was a way to stay healthy and promoted healthy living. It’s part of that ethos that drove her to pursue the field as a career.

“I think in chiropractic and other health care, when you have family following each other there is a philosophy about it, something unique,” she said.

Green and her husband, both originally from Washington State, returned home after graduating from Life Chiropractic college in 2006 and 2009 respectively. The pair lived in Renton and Seattle, but ultimately moved to North Bend in 2012 for the small town feel and plentiful outdoor resources. They each worked with other chiropractors in offices around the region, but in order to be closer to home and maintain a strong work-life balance, they decided to open their own practice in the Valley.

Being a part of the business community of the Valley has been very helpful to the stability and growth of their business, Green said. She specifically said that a series of business workshops held by Chamber of Commerce Board Member Earl Bell were very helpful with finding resources of how to deal with starting up a small business.

Green said that she thinks a lot of small business owners don’t want to talk about the times when the business is in “struggle and survival mode,” but feels that talking with others who have gone through the same things can be incredibly helpful in correcting your mindset and finding the right path forward for success.

“Getting out and talking to other entrepreneurs whether they are in the same business or not has been hugely helpful,” she said.

As a chiropractor, Green is pediatric certified and often works with kids of all ages and also works with special needs patients as well.

Green also has a passion for the outdoors, exercise and health. For several years she has worked with Outdoors for All, a nonprofit focused on creating outdoor opportunities for those people with disabilities.

She is also in the midst of writing a family-friendly guide to the Valley and beyond. Her goal is for the book to detail many of the free outdoor activities available within 45 minutes of Snoqualmie.

“I love biking and hiking and skiing, I want to give people an opportunity who might otherwise be intimidated or not go,” she said. “It’s a natural progression, when you are outside you want to do it more.”

The target audience is beginners and kids, she said. Green is finishing up the first phase of book’s development and is planning to have it complete by late fall/early winter. Her plan is to give the book out to the people who come to her office. There are no current plans to sell the book, but that may be a possibility in the future.

Snoqualmie Optimal Health Chiropractic is located at 7726 Center Blvd., Snoqualmie, in Suite 230.
