Dr. Jordana Beutelschies Parker College of Chiropractic
My name is Dr. Jordana Beutelschies. I grew up in Van Buren, AR with my two brothers Josh and Jonathan Seubold. My parents are Ramona Seubold and the late Dr. Torsten (Doc) Seubold. I married Cody Beutelschies in 2009.
When I was younger (about 13) I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor but I also wanted to work with animals. Needless to say, I was a little torn. So I thought I’d make up my own career and put them both together to make a veterinary chiropractor. My dad took me to a farm to watch this lady adjust some horses, and I. Fell. In. LOVE. Once I found out I could put my two passions together, I knew exactly what I had to do to achieve this goal.
So once I graduated from Van Buren High School in 2005, I attended the University of Arkansas in Fort Smith and graduated from there in 2010 with a Bachelors in Science and Technology in Organizational Leadership. After that I moved to Dallas where I attended Parker College of Chiropractic (now Parker University) and graduated from there April 2014 with my Doctorate in Chiropractic.
While attending Parker, I was chosen to be a part of the Susan G. Komen 3 Day walk for the cure where I adjusted all the participants throughout the weekend of festivities. I was also chosen to finish my internship at the Dallas Veterans Affairs Hospital.
Outside of my chiropractic curriculum, I was able to attend my animal chiropractic studies. It was a 6 month, 250 hour course in the study of animal chiropractic. I passed my animal certification and licensing written and practical examinations later that year.
Now I’ve moved back home and currently have a human practice in Fort Smith, AR with Seubold Chiropractic Clinic. I am a licensed, AVCA certified doctor of animal chiropractic in both the state of Arkansas and Oklahoma. I am a mobile clinic, so I am able to make farm calls (in Oklahoma only) if necessary. If you do not live in Oklahoma or want to make an appointment in Arkansas, please call my cell number for an appointment (Located in Contact Tab).
