Live life on your terms

Imagine the freedom… imagine waking up every morning free from aches and pains, clear headed, well rested…no alarm clock needed. Coffee supplemented only because you LOVE the taste, not because you couldn’t imagine making it through a day without the caffeine; no morning medications, no mid-day fatigue, no evening crash. The muscle aches that stop you from going to the gym….gone. The sharp shooting pains that inhibit you from crawling on the floor with your grandkids…gone. The headaches that destroy family outings….gone. Can you imagine how freeing that life looks? Is it possible? We believe it is. We know it is because each and everyone of us is designed perfectly with the potential to not only survive each day, but to ATTACK it. That is what our clinic offers. We offer the opportunity to create the freedom that we all deserve. The freedom of health.

Paige Farder | Office Manager/CA

Hello Everyone!

I’m Paige! I truly feel so blessed to be working with Dr. Jenna & bringing this type of wellness setting to my hometown of Grand Forks. After graduating high school in 2009 (Go Roughriders!) and a few adventures later, I found myself introduced to the chiropractic/holistic medicine world and my life hasn’t been the same. Since then, I have seen miracle after miracle and I’m so excited for you to all experience it too! I currently live in Grand Forks, with my fiancé, our daughter, and our Boston Terrier. If I’m not at Paragon with my tribe, I’m probably at home with my tribe, cuddled up to a good book or doing some meditations and yoga in the corner!

Namaste friends ~ xoxo

Matt Smaby | Business Manager

Matt SmabyHey everybody!

A little about me – I grew up in Minneapolis (not as a Gopher fan) and I was lucky enough to be asked to attend UND to play hockey. I attended UND from 2003-2006, which is when I met the love of my life, Jenna. While we were at UND, both of us were mentored by so many special and wonderful people that helped prepare us for life after college. Grand Forks has always held a special place in our hearts. While Jenna and I were in school, and especially after we moved away, we came to understand the strong sense of community that Grand Forks represents.

After traveling the world for my hockey career the past 11 years, we thought about what would be important to us when we settled back into a area to raise our kids, Sloane and Jack…quality people, and a strong, caring community. Grand Forks was an easy choice. We didn’t want to just move to a great community, we wanted to contribute to it.

I am a firm believer in the benefits of chiropractic. Not only did chiropractic care and a holistic lifestyle extend my career as a hockey player, it gave me a front row seat to the benefits to my kids. Jenna is an extremely bright, caring, and communicative doctor. I know that your experience with her will afford you all of the benefits I saw throughout my professional career, and that my kids see on a daily basis.

Jenna and I are so happy to be a part of the Grand Forks community. Come in. We’d love to meet all of you. We can’t wait to start contributing to the community that means so much to us.
