Meet the Team
Chief Executive Officer & Chiropractor
Dr. Jennifer Walker is the founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chiropractic Physician for Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine. Dr. Walker started the practice 2006 with a vision to radically change how people view healthcare. Her mission is, and always has been, to show patients how they can take an active and proactive approach to their health.
Dr. Walker started her career as an Exercise Physiologist in a chiropractic and medical clinic. Through that early experience she learned that even at a young age she was already showing signs of spinal degeneration in her neck. She also discovered that chiropractic care helped to relieve pain from severe ear infections. Throughout these experiences, she was inspired to help others avoid surgery and drugs and live better with the help of chiropractic care. This time in her life was the inspiration to become a chiropractor.
Dr. Walker earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Western States Chiropractic College in 2001. She continues to grow and evolve the practice at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine to bring the best healthcare options to her patients and the Roanoke Valley.
Treigh Crouch is the Executive Director at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine and oversees the entire patient experience. He holds a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology and joined the Balance team in 2016 as a rehab technician. The rehab department was just getting started then, and Treigh played an integral part in building, growing, and overseeing that department. His role provided the opportunity to meet and work with thousands of patients on attaining their function and lifestyle goals.
Today you can catch Treigh anywhere in the office, offering a helping hand where needed. Afterall, one of Treigh’s main goals at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine is to provide the best patient and employee experience that can be offered. You might see Treigh in the gym after hours practicing all the cues he gives to others, as his biggest passion is lifting weights and staying fit!
Dr. Cameron Clowser is a Chiropractor for Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine in Roanoke, VA. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from Old Dominion University. He graduated Cum Laude with his Doctorate of Chiropractic (D.C.) from Sherman College of Chiropractic. Dr. Clowser also received the Milton W. Garfunkel award, the highest award given by Sherman College of Chiropractic, which honors a student for showing superior abilities in academic, clinical, and philosophical aspects of Chiropractic. He was also awarded the Clinical Excellence Distinction award.
Dr. Clowser’s primary goal with patients is to improve their functionality on a day-to-day basis while providing education on coping strategies for pain within movement. He wants to increase the number of years they are able to be active and participate in the activities they love. He strives to build patients’ confidence in their abilities to live life to the fullest with as little pain and restrictions as possible.
He enjoys working with athletes and helping them in the process of rehabilitation, injury-risk management, and overall sports performance. When Dr. Clowser is not in the office, you can find him in the gym practicing what he preaches and building a foundation for longevity in the future through movement and exercise.
Olivia Ferguson serves as the Physician Assistant at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine. Olivia will perform an exam during your first visit, including a functional movement screen (FMS) to assess muscle/joint mobility and strength, to develop a baseline and better guide your specific rehab plan based on your individual needs. Olivia’s specialties include administering trigger point injections (TPIs) in various tight muscles, utilizing platelet rich plasma and/or allograft tissue injections into inflamed or irritated joints or tendon sheaths to promote healing.
Olivia has a passion for developing relationships with patients and seeing how their lives are transformed by the care provided. “When patients come in my office saying they ‘haven’t felt this good in (insert time period- days, months, years),’ THAT is why I do what I do.”
Olivia’s top three most proud moments to date are 1) being the four-year starting catcher for a division two collegiate softball team, 2) graduating from PA school, and 3) obtaining a first job out of graduate school working as a Surgical First Assist in Orthopedics with a subspecialty in Sports Medicine. Her overall goal in life is to continually improve on placing others’ needs before her own and to maintain a positive, uplifting mindset. When not at work, you can find Olivia either training or coaching at Big Lick CrossFit, playing with her three fur children, (Copper, Miner, and Barkley), reading (shout out to Harry Potter), practicing guitar, hanging out with family and friends, or traveling (when it’s safe of course)!
