Meet the Team at Advanced Health Center

At Advanced Health Center, our team provides a safe, warm, compassionate, friendly environment for those in Bellingham who want more from their chiropractic care. We look forward to learning more about you, helping you along the way, and celebrating the milestones that improve your quality of life.

Paula's headshotMy life has been directed by two guiding principles. “Do unto others what you would have them do to you,” and “Be the change that you want to be in the world.” These principles have led me to not only my husband, Dr. Keeler, but the chiropractic profession, as well, both of which allow me to serve my community in Bellingham through holistic care.

While Dr. Keeler was in graduate school, I worked as a consultant offering services to chiropractors in the San Francisco Bay area while raising two children. This gave me great insight into practical ways to support Dr. Keeler as he entered into full-time practice, and gave me the ability to create quality time with my children.

For 33 years, my administrative skills have given me the opportunity to support the team at Advanced Health Center and provide effective change in people’s lives. This brings me deep satisfaction and happiness.

I have a degree in Environmental Conservation that allows me to pursue my love of plants and animals. While conducting field research, I discovered two new orchid species in Bolivia and Ecuador, and I was delighted to be able to name them. I spent 10 years on the island of Kauai running a bed and breakfast while working remotely for Advanced Health Center.

When not working, I love to spend time with my dog, Maggie, enjoy the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and flex my artistic muscles with mixed media art, sewing, quilting, gardening, and music.

katie's headshotI have incorporated chiropractic care into my own life since my early 20s and appreciate how it has helped with some chronic low back and neck pain. I tend to have the mentality of “no pain, no gain,” but have realized that you also need to take care of yourself, and chiropractic fits perfectly! I have run four Ragnar Relay races, three road races in the Northwest Passage, and one trail race at Crystal Mountain. I had a goal in 2019 to run six half marathons, and I made five that year. For 2024, I have a goal to run the Dopey Challenge at Disney World that includes a 5k, 10k, half marathon, and marathon in four days!

I came to Advanced Health Center with 10 years in the medical field working in ophthalmology and two years working at a local insurance company. I have always been drawn to positions where I can help and connect with others. Advanced Health Center’s focus on helping patients in a holistic manner appealed to me because it is important to look at the whole body, and not just where the pain is located.

I am a huge movie buff and often participate in local trivia (pre-COVID and, hopefully, again post-COVID). One of my favorite mugs says, “Ask me about my cat,” and I’d love to share some great stories about Beans!

Thomas headshotI have been a longtime patient of chiropractic medicine since age 10 when my mother took me for my first experience. I have found it to be a great help to my overall health. From a young age, my exposure to the philosophy of chiropractic care helped me to understand that the well-being of the whole body is connected, just like the well-being of a family or even an ecosystem. I imagine that, if I had not been receiving chiropractic care throughout my life, my health would not be as good as it is currently. I was introduced to Advanced Health Center by my fiancé who was working here. My favorite part of my job is connecting with and helping people.

Outside of work, I do a lot of cooking and a lot of walking around, especially during my favorite season of Spring. My best dish is salmon curry, and my favorite food is white rice. I have been playing guitar for 15 years, but as the time goes by, I seem to get worse and worse instead of improving, but I keep working on my skills.
