About our guest:

Dr Cynthia Shaft was raised in a chiropractic family eventually numbering 22 in all in 3 generations.  She was surrounded by chiropractors and spent much of her childhood listening in on seminars and conversations about the profession.  The  youngest of 3 children of Ray Elwart DC and Mary Elwart, her two siblings Dan Elwart DC and Linda Atkinson DC distinguished themselves in the profession as well.  Linda, held the first license to practice chiropractic on mainland China.

Dr. Shaft always wanted to be a chiropractor and finished high school early and accelerated the rest of her education graduating at age 22 as the youngest in her class, as well as being a mother of 2 children. She eventually completed her family and now has 7 children and 8 grandchildren.  The difficulties of balancing family life with practice inspired her to reach out to other women in chiropractic and create a network of doctors who are passionate about chiropractic. This lead to the creation of Women Chiropractors, a nonprofit group working together to achieve these ideals.
