Dr. Tamara MacIntyre is both a Doctor of Chiropractic and Doctor of Natural Medicine. Prior to becoming Dean of Clinical Education at Life Chiropractic College West, she practiced in Ottawa, Canada for 14 years where she was recognized as a leading authority in chiropractic and functional medicine. Patients traveled from all over the world to receive her care and access the depth of her expertise.

Dr. MacIntyre is a gifted educator and mentor known for her power, grace and intelligence. 

She has taught courses ranging from anatomy and physiology to business, communication, hematology, pediatrics and technique. What sets her apart is her ability to make the clinical experience accessible to her students. She inspires a depth of knowledge and compassion in her students that summons forth the doctor within them.


Dr. Monique Andrews is a chiropractor, neuroscientist and Chair of Basic Sciences at Life Chiropractic College West. As an international speaker and sought after teacher, Dr. Mo is known for her engaging presentations and TED style of lecturing, she is a master at making even the most difficult concepts attainable to all learners.

Dr. Mo’s scholastic acumen is an obvious asset, however those closest to her know her greatest gift is the enormity of her heart. Dr. Mo’s compassionate, authentic expression of life is exemplified by her belief that who you are as a person precedes who you are as a chiropractor.

Few people possess the expertise, presence and wisdom to make a meaningful impact on humanity. Dr. Mo is a rare gift to our profession.


With a background in professional cycling and extensive global travel, Dr. Lauren brings an unusually diverse worldview to her practice.

Beyond her Denver practice, Dr. Lauren has launched a series of Nikau programs that cater specifically to female practitioners. Nikau Talks is a podcast featuring frank and inspiring conversations with female leaders from across the wellness industry. Nikau Seminars are two-day workshops addressing the specific physical and psychological needs of female chiropractic students. Finally, Nikau Retreats are multi-day service trips that invite students and active practitioners to engage with underserved communities and take time for self-care.

In developing these initiatives, Dr. Lauren has pioneered the first nationwide program of chiropractic education that addresses the unique strengths and challenges of women in the field.
