Meet Julie Stevenson of Yonge-Steeles Family Wellness Centre in North York

Julie Stevenson with her husband, Dr. Gary Stevenson

Julie is not only the office manager at Yonge-Steeles Family Wellness Centre, she’s also a extensively-trained healthcare professional and Dr. Gary Stevenson’s wife. She started working with Dr. Stevenson in 1990 after working in dietetics and nutrition for 15 years.

“I was 16 years old when I started in healthcare; first job was in hospital housekeeping and that summer the first rotation was in the emergency room. This is when I had the call that my passion was in helping others. My experience made me realize how illness/disease can create so much distress and destruction in one’s life. Initially, I thought I would work in nursing but eventually moved into Dietetics.”

With a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Food and Nutrition, Julie entered the world of dietetics. After enjoying much success, she began working at numerous hospitals.”My dietetic internship was a shared program, so I was exposed to many different hospitals. When I left it, I was managing 60 employees and 7 supervisors and working a 60 hour week. Dr. Stevenson said you are working so hard, why not utilize that great energy towards managing my clinic so I can focus solely on the clinical aspect of the practice? I said ok…as long as I am the boss…ha ha!”

Julie loves watching the great relief chiropractic care can bring to patients. “I love watching miracles happening everyday through chiropractic, and giving people hope when they feel so hopeless. I love igniting people onto chiropractic. I love people…helping them, talking to them. We help them but they help me more, by teaching me so much about the human spirit. Challenging me daily…there isn’t anything that hasn’t come my way when dealing with people, and after many years of experience I can honestly say I can do it and do it well, always with a peaceful outcome.”

In her free time, Julie loves to spend time with my grown-up children and dogs, plus she enjoys running, sewing, and creating a life filled with joy and love.
