You’re in good hands with our team

Sharon Cannon

Hello I am Sharon Cannon. I have had various jobs within the health field and was a volunteer member of St John Ambulance for many years. I discovered chiropractic and its natural approach to health when I started working as a Chiropractic Assistant in August 1994 (when the centre opened) and I have been passionate about it ever since.

I enjoy seeing the benefits chiropractic brings to our many patients. I have one son (Chris) who has also enjoyed the chiropractic lifestyle and he is now studying in Auckland at N.Z. College of Chiropractic.

I do have another passion in my life and that is Petanque. I have been playing competitively since 1999 and am a New Zealand Representative at this sport.


Catherine Jones

Hello, I’m Catherine and I’m loving my job as a chiropractic assistant. I was introduced to First Chiropractic as a patient and my health and my daughter’s health have improved markedly since being under chiropractic care.

I have had a variety of jobs including the national aquarium, wine industry and was a volunteer ambulance officer.

In my spare time (not often!) I love to garden and enjoy photography.


Brett Mead

I joined the team at the Hastings practice in 2015 and love the friendly environment and seeing all of our patients improvements first-hand.

Having discovered chiropractic care myself in 2010, the most common remark I hear from our new patients is ‘I wish I knew about you guys years ago!’ which is such a rewarding part of the job.

Originally from Gisborne, I now enjoy the Hawke’s Bay and the lifestyle it offers my wife and I along with our young daughters Pippa and Isla. Exploring the cycleways throughout the Bay are where I love to spend my free time, as well as time at the beach with the family.
