Hello! I just want to introduce myself, my name is Leah Hood. To start off I'll give a little background information about myself. My family has lived within the Manchester area for the past 45 years. I grew up here and love the small town feel. I graduated from West Delaware and went to Clark University for my undergraduate degree of, Bachelor of Science in Biology. I got my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa. I married Chad Hood, a Manchester, Iowa native as well on March 1, 2014. I am loving every moment of married life. We have 3 beautiful kids, McKenna, Mason, and Maylin! We are very busy, but I love every moment and memory!  I can't wait to see what the future holds for our family!

Bio coming soon!!

Hello!! My name is Stefanie Dingbaum. I live in Earlville, Iowa with my husband and our Siberian husky, Luna. I have lived in Earlville since I was 6, met my husband in Earlville, and we decided to put roots down close to home. We love being close to our families! I graduated from Maquoketa Valley High School in Delhi. I got my undergraduate degree from Coe College in Cedar Rapids and majored in Psychology/Sociology. I worked as an in-home behavioral health/crisis counselor for 5 years and then went back to school to get my Masters in Social Work at Clarke University in Dubuque. I got licensed immediately out of graduate school and started working as a School Social Worker with AEA/West Delaware. I was at the school for 4 years before I took the leap of faith to start my own therapy private practice right here in Manchester. Creating my own business was the best thing I ever did for myself! I could not be happier, being a mental health therapist and entrepreneur truly fills my soul!
