Dr. Ben Knight was born and raised
on a farm outside of the small town of Sergeant Bluff, IA. He
completed his undergraduate studies at Morningside College in Sioux
City, IA where he was a four-year letter winner and an All-American
in wrestling and he later attended Northwestern Chiropractic
College, where he met his wife, Chelsie.

volume, high-collecting, vitalistic practice, but he has been able

Ben now resides in Chanhassen, MN
with his wife Chelsie and their two dogs Bailey and Grecko.
The two of them love spending time in nature, fishing,
listening to vinyl records and working on growing the new start-up
