Emily Peterson Watters

Dr. Emily Watters is an enthusiast of learning, having graduated cum laude with departmental honors from the University of Oregon with Bachelors of Science in Psychology and General Science, and minors in Biology and Chemistry. She then continued her education at the University of Western States (UWS), graduating summa cum laude.

Dr. Emily’s clinical interests focus on pediatric care and she has been an active steward to this population, serving at the academic, clinical and legislative levels. During her time as a chiropractic student she founded and was elected the President of the Pediatrics Club on her campus. She was also elected the first American Chiropractic Association’s Pediatrics Council Student Liaison.

Dr. Emily is trained in Craniosacral Therapy and places a high value on mindful clinical practice. She helped create, alongside the university president, the first Art of Mindful Practice group at UWS. Dr. Emily was also involved with several extracurricular groups while in school that focused on collaboration and integration between the many forms of healthcare to help foster an understanding between professions.

Dr. Emily’s passion for entering into chiropractic was based on the help she received from a chiropractor during her most physically and mentally formative years. It is from that experience that she has devoted her future chiropractic practice toward helping aid in the optimal development of pediatric patients. Through her education and technique with children she is honored to be able to provide the same second chance of an active life to another young person as she received through chiropractic care.

In her free time Dr. Emily loves to travel abroad, sing and spend time in the outdoors with her husband, Sean. She was married this spring and looks forward to being Dr. Watters as she continues towards her goals.
