Blending a passion of dedication and tenacity, Delilah Renegar, DC has been practicing internal medicine since 1989. Yet, her life-long dream of becoming a doctor started early on, proven by her first copy of Grey’s Anatomy – purchased at 10 years old!

Today, Dr. Renegar’s devotion to healthcare and wellness lifestyle thrives on at Aligned Modern Health where she leads the growing scope of Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition. Committed to empowered health, Dr. Renegar believes that nothing is more sacred than the doctor-patient relationship that is honored through Functional Medicine and personalized medicine.

Dr. Renegar earned her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, graduating with honors. She received her medical degree, Summa Cum Laude, at University of Arts, Science and Technology and her chiropractic medicine degree at the National University of Health Science (where she was awarded the Joseph Janse “Outstanding Graduate” award).

Prior to joining the Aligned Modern Health team as the Director of Functional Medicine in 2019, Dr. Renegar was in private practice in the far western suburbs of Chicago. In addition to her current role at Aligned Modern Health, she has served as President on the Council on Nutrition for the American Chiropractic Association. Dr. Renegar also serves on the post-doctoral faculty of both National University of Health Sciences and the University of Western States, and is a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. Her special interests include preventive health, education and motivation.

Dr. MaryAnne Dimak is an Associate Professor in the Clinical Sciences Department at Parker University. Prior to Parker, she and her husband Cody owned and operated an active-care and rehabilitation-focused practice in California.

In 2018, they relocated to be closer to their families and found opportunities to transition to the academic environment at Parker. She teaches Functional Assessment and Multimodal Rehabilitation of the Prenatal and Postpartum Patient and has been heavily involved in integrating more active care and functional movement principles with students, clinicians, and coaches through the various programs at Parker.

Dr. Kliethermes joined Logan University in 2021 as a faculty clinician where she mentors interns at the beginning of their clinical careers, assisting with critical thinking, clinical diagnosis, treatment plans, billing and coding. She introduces them to the clinical environment and helps to bring all the knowledge they have acquired together to formulate a treatment plan and carry out appropriate treatment for patients.  Since January 2024, she has overseen the Women’s Health Specialty Clinic at Montgomery Health Center Logan University.  This is the first Women’s Health Specialty rotation at a chiropractic institution in the country and is open to Trimester 8-10 interns.  The specialty clinic has seen interesting cases and helps educate the interns in networking and preceptor opportunities in Women’s Health.

Dr. Kliethermes earned her doctor of chiropractic and her Bachelor of Science in Human Anatomy from Parker University in 1998.

Her background includes owning and operating her own chiropractic practice, working as an independent contractor and associate.  She has also taught in higher education for the past 18 years.

She works closely with other healthcare professionals providing comprehensive and collaborative care. As part of a family’s health care team, Dr. Young helps resolve musculoskeletal issues leading to breastfeeding difficulties including neck tension, TMJ dysfunction, tongue and lip ties, torticollis, cranial bone asymmetries and painful latch. She also provides pre and post-frenotomy/frenectomy care to resolve musculoskeletal issues contributing to tongue and lip ties. Providers and patients rely on Dr. Young for her comprehensive diagnostic and treatment approaches, including gentle chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic exercise, soft tissue, Webster and craniosacral techniques.

Dr. Nichelle Gurule, the owner of Gaia Health, is from Colorado and met her husband Dr. Antonio Gurule at the University of Colorado at Boulder before moving out to California for graduate school at Palmer College of Chiropractic.

Her chiropractic journey began in the hospital working in an integrative setting at a Department of Defense Hospital at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, treating wounded warriors, she then transitioned into working in a sports chiropractic setting, before she began her own practice and put her focus into her true passion of women and family health.

When people describe her they often use the words motivated and passionate, which couldn’t be truer. The things in life that she is most passionate about is her work in the health care world with women and children, along with her roles as a mother and wife.

Her family loves to be active! You can find them at the gym (or in our garage gym), on bike rides, hikes, neighborhood walks, and paddleboarding. They love the outdoors and are so grateful they live in Colorado where the weather and scenery are so beautiful.
