Elaine Smith brings 17 years experience in the chiropractic industry to this facility. She started in 1989 as an office manager to one of the largest chiropractic offices in St. Petersburg, FL where she met Dr. Nickse. After working there for 10 years, she branched out to work for a multi-disiplinary healthcare facility also in St. Petersburg, Fl. Two years later, she and Dr. Nickse opened their own office in Seminole, FL. While Dr. Nickse takes care of the patient's, Elaine takes care of the business. They both describe it as a "marriage made in Heaven".

Elaine and her husband Roger have lived in Seminole for many years, raising three sons there. Her oldest son, Roger Jr., graduated from the University of Florida, married a college friend and now has two children, Jacob and Jayden and they live in North Carolina. Her middle son, Aaron, graduated from South Florida, has two children, Grace and Gabrielle living in Largo. Her youngest son, Josh, is currently attending St. Petersburg College and works fulltime for Albertson's in Seminole. She is a very proud mother and grandmother. Just ask her, if you have enough time to see all the pictures and hear all their accomplishments. She always has time to share her love for her family.
