A Little Bit About Me: Meet Dr. Richelle Martins

When I sat down trying to brainstorm ideas for this blog, I really had no idea how to start. Did I want to make it super educational, more formal, or just more laid back and personal?? I honestly was LOST. After some deliberation, chats with my partner over wine and lots of procrastination, I decided to do a bit of, well, everything. I say everything because that’s who am I – a little bit nerdy, a little bit lazy and a ton of crazy. So to kick off my blogging days, I started simple with 10 (somewhat) interesting facts about little ol’ me.


10 (maybe little known) facts about me:


  1. facts about me - Dr. Richelle Martins Fort Erie ChiropractorI started dancing at the age of five years old (and stopped at 20).
  2. When I was younger I also did figure skating for one year but I had to stop because I found out I was…
  3. Alllergic to the cold (yes, it’s a real thing).
  4. I started seeing a chiropractor when I was eight years old (but ironically enough, never considered it as a career choice until I was in my 20s).
  5. When I was 17 I tore three out of the four ligaments in my right knee and fractured my fibula while playing with nerf guns (yes, you heard that right – I am a bit clutsy).
  6. Traditional sports and I do NOT mix (but I do love watching them).
  7. I never considered myself a cat person, but now that I have one I have realized I definitely am!
  8. My workout routine is currently bodyweight and kettlebell workouts with some running. And I am LOVING IT!
  9. I grew up in Hamilton, Ontario but currently live and practice in the Niagara region.
  10. While I was going through school I worked as a receptionist at an amazing clinic that focused on pre- and post-natal care. Being there is what inspired my passion for the care of moms, moms-to-be and their little ones.


I hope you enjoyed this quick little introduction about me post! I plan on posting weekly blogs every Tuesday with tips and tricks on topics like health, fitness, recipes, chiropractic and overall wellness.
