Lynn Kanady

Business Manager
Dr. Kanady and I met in 1986, married in 1987 and opened Kanady Chiropractic together in 1988. I have been running the front desk since the beginning and our business is my passion. I raised two kids behind the desk so that I could ensure we were providing the very best care to our patients. I am very proud of the reputation we have built and get so much satisfaction from helping patients get the care they deserve. I am blessed I get to work with my husband and daughter every day and many days you can even find my son and his wife visiting the office. I couldn’t be happier that both of our kids moved back to Alaska after college and live and work so close to us. We truly are a family run business.

Denise Aafedt

Insurance Manager
I was born and raised on the East Coast but married a Montanan who convinced me to move our family to Alaska. Raising our son and daughter, helping with our family owned construction business and volunteer work has made for a busy and rewarding life. In my spare time I enjoy trying new recipes and planning our next trip to Italy. When we became empty-nesters in 2015, I decided it was time to try something new and started at Kanady Chiropractic. I love that this a family business; I feel more like a family member than an employee. Dr. Kanady has been an Anchorage provider for over 30 years and I love that he has patients that have been coming to see him since the beginning. I am proud to work for a facility that puts the patient’s needs first and is honest in all aspects of their business. I enjoy working in the chiropractic field because it is very rewarding to see patients experience real relief from their pain without relying on prescriptions or more costly and invasive procedures. As the insurance manager here, it brings me great satisfaction to help patients maximize their insurance benefits and assist in resolving any issues that arise.

Born in California, but raised in Colorado, I moved to Alaska in 2013 to explore the wilderness! I love backpacking in the summer, road trips to Valdez for snowboarding, camping and hiking. During Alaska’s long dark winters, I’m always up for karaoke with friends! I’ve been at Kanady Chiropractic for about four years and I love everyone I work with! The Kanady’s are very generous people and I’m proud to work for them. There is a mutual respect in the office and we all get along really well. I’ve always had an appreciation for chiropractic care. I loved getting adjusted as a kid. Now working in the field, my favorite thing is to see patients feeling better. It’s always rewarding to see something you believe in benefit others.

Paige Kanady

Special Projects Administrator
Being born into the Kanady clan, and practically growing up behind the front desk, I was destined to join the family business. I have worked here off and on throughout high school, college and started full time in January of 2017. In July 2017 I met my husband, Justin, who is active duty Air Force. So, in 2019 we packed our life into our camper and made our first big move to Madison, Wisconsin. Now I spend my free time taking care of our dogs, chickens and sampling cheese curds every chance I get. The beauty of working for a family business is that it allows me to work remotely from anywhere the military sends us. You can still hear me behind the front desk just about every day, only now it’s through Skype.
I enjoy working in the chiropractic field because I get to witness tiny miracles every day. Our IDD Therapy offers patients an alternative to surgery and I love seeing patients get relief from our treatment rather than undergoing surgery. And of course, I enjoy getting to work with my family every day.

Massage Therapist
Born in California, raised in Portland, Oregon and moved to Alaska when I married my best friend in 2014. It didn’t take long to fall in love with this beautiful place. My husband and I enjoy everything there is to do outside! We especially enjoy backpacking, fishing, biking and climbing in the summer sunshine. Besides taking advantage of the local beauty, we also love to go on adventures and travel to see other parts of the world, especially while participating in a worldwide volunteer work. I’ve been with Kanady since January 2018, and right away I felt like part of the family. The Kanady’s and all the staff sincerely care for each individual patient, which isn’t hard because the patients are incredible! I am so proud and privileged to work with all of them. I absolutely love playing a small role in helping improve someone’s health and wellness, it truly is a rewarding career!

Sophie Cornell

Massage Therapist
I was born and raised an Alaskan girl. My parents came to Alaska as a temporary work trip, and the rest is history! I am so happy that they decided to stay because I can’t imagine a better place to grow up where the outdoors were my playground. I was practically raised camping the first five years of my life living in a typical Alaskan cabin off the beaten path. My husband and I love anything to do with the outdoors whether it’s fishing, camping,hiking, snowboarding, traveling or volunteer work. Working at Kanady Chiropractic has been so wonderful and the Kanady’s make me feel like I am part of the family. I love providing massage in a chiropractic office because the patient’s health and wellness is the focal point.
