Lona Cook, DC

Mission Life International, Inc

Vice President of Public Relations

Dr. Lona Cook, DC is a chiropractor, author, and mentor for female chiropractors. Her love for chiropractic paired with her passion for teaching and mentoring combine to provide an exceptional resource for female chiropractors who want to improve their lives and their practice. When Dr. Lona graduated from chiropractic college a few years ago, she decided to take the road less traveled and begin on her own as a fresh graduate and new DC. She opened her own practice from ground up and through dedication, focus, and hard work within two years had built it to a level at which she was able to pay off more than six figures worth of student loan debt. At the time, she felt as though if someone would just tell her what to do, she could do it. There was no resource available at that time providing a real step by step guide to build a successful practice for new DC's. Dr. Lona took copious notes during the process and used those notes to write "Just Tell Me Where To Start," her first book. The book includes a real life step by step account of every issue faced in opening a new office from finding a space, getting insurance, marketing yourself with little or no money, setting up your systems, and more. All learned in the trenches during the first two years of business. The book led to many national speaking engagements, coaching and mentoring opportunities, then international speaking engagements, and other appearances. All the while, Dr. Lona has continued to focus on her practice and patients and has at the same time grown her original practice to more than double in size and open another practice, adding associate DC's and additional CA's to the team. Dr. Lona practices what she teaches for a happy and full life in alignment both at home and in the practice.
