Meet Dr. Lee Ann Kalaba

Lee Ann Kalaba

I envision that the people I have the honor to work with will experience real change in their lives!”

Discovering Healing Naturally

In her mid-20s, Dr. Kalaba was an avid runner and cyclist. “I ran myself into the ground, severely herniating two discs in my lower back. About five years after my injury, I found my way to chiropractic. With just a few weeks of care, I began to heal. More importantly, I realized that no one could fix me. Healing happened from the inside, and it could only come from me. I didn’t choose chiropractic for what it did for my back. I chose chiropractic for what it did for my being.”

On a Mission to Help Others

Dr. Kalaba is on a mission to help transform the lives of patients, using improved health as a catalyst, so they can go out into the world and do something they never thought possible. She has a particular passion for helping people who have recently started exercising again, and desiring to lose weight permanently and naturally. She also helps those struggling with chronic fatigue, brain fog, and chronic aches and pains.

From Corporate America to Chiropractic

Before becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Kalaba received her undergraduate degree in accounting and entrepreneurship from the University of Arizona. She spent nearly a decade in corporate America. Though she achieved success, like Dr. Cox, she felt unfulfilled. During that time she experienced a severe injury that affected her health in many ways, including significant weight gain. That’s where her chiropractic journey began.

Dr. Kalaba earned her Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University, graduating as valedictorian in 2012. “The highlight of my clinical education was simply the honor of being able to support hundreds of community members with chiropractic care.”

Educating Patients About True Health

“One thing I spend a lot of loving energy on is educating patients that healing isn’t about just one aspect of their experience, such as injury or a specific pain or discomfort. True health is about one’s whole being and flourishing in all areas of life.” Dr. Kalaba also has a passion for educating others on the benefits of eating whole, unprocessed, organic foods and creating chemical-free, nontoxic home environments.

Staying Active in Tucson

When she’s not at the practice, Dr. Kalaba is an avid hiker who loves spending time outdoors, especially in Sabino Canyon. She is an animal lover who also enjoys reading, yoga, kirtan, meditation, contemporary shamanism, thought-provoking conversations, and farmers’ markets. And, of course, she is a huge Arizona Wildcats basketball fan!
