We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Jenny Le and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Jenny, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I have been extremely blessed to get to where I am today, but getting there took a lot of perseverance, dedication, risk taking, and determination. No matter the outcome, taking risks plays a pivotal role in advancing your career and getting through life. Although, taking risks can be scary, if succeeded, you gain such a higher reward than you would have had, had you played it safe. If you fail, you learn a greater lesson; on how to become better, what to work on, and how to succeed the next time you try to do something.
I am currently a chiropractor, working in the Greater Heights, where I see a variety of patients, ranging in age, activity level, and injuries. Getting to where I am today was not an easy journey. Throughout my life and career, I had to undergo many obstacles which made me get out of my comfort zone and take major risks. It has helped me break out of my shell, be more confident in myself and my goals, and not only helps me get a better understanding of what I want in life and my career, but helps me get a better understanding of my patients, their goals, and their needs.
What should our readers know about your business?
Currently, I am an associate chiropractor at a small clinic in the Greater Heights area.
Our patients range in age, and we specialize in prenatal, postnatal, sports-related, and both acute and chronic injuries. We help patients decrease in pain, improve posture and mobility, as well as keep the patient performing at their optimal every day.
What I am most proud of is being able to help hundreds of patients decrease and get out of pain, and also help them to reach their personal goals. Another proud moment for me, is that The Leaders newspaper released their Readers’ Choice results, where the Greater Heights community votes the best in the area, and I was recognized and voted as #1 Womens Health Provider, #3 Wellness Center, and #3 Chiropractor in the area for 2021!!
What sets our office apart from others, is that we are very patient-based. We cater to the needs of our patients and prioritize their health and wellness. Each treatment and visit is tailored to the patient and what they are coming in for, and we prioritize getting to know each patient individually, understanding what brought them in, and how their pain came about. We are also very accommodating, whether a patient has an emergency and needs to be seen as early as 7 or 8 am or due to their work and personal schedule and needs to be seen later, we try to help each patient in every way possible.
The journey of getting to where I am today has not been easy. From completing my clinical studies at the beginning of the pandemic to overcoming personal health issues, if it wasn’t for such a supporting backbone, I don’t think I would have been able to get through many of these obstacles. Through this, it has taught me to be more patient, to have more empathy towards others, to be more confident in myself, and to take more risks in life.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to give a shoutout to my wonderful husband, who has been there for me through thick and thin, and has seen my struggle and my success from the beginning. To my supportive family and friends, thank you for being the greatest cheerleaders. And lastly, to Dr. Nataly Perez, who not only took me under her wing, but has helped me grow as a person, as a colleague, and as a friend, and who has taught me the in’s and out’s of owning a successful business.
