Rae Oldenburger - Office Manager
Rae joined the team as office manager at Ruof Chiropractic in October 2014. Prior to joining the practice, Rae worked in the hospitality industry as a meeting planner for 12 years. The majority of her clients were medical associations, for whom she planned everything from board meetings and small seminars to annual conferences with over 7,500 people and 500+ booths. She feels lucky to be able to continue working with medical professionals, but truly enjoys the patient interactions that she encounters daily.
Rae moved to the south side of Chicago about two years ago and is enjoying all the changes that living in Oak Lawn has brought. In her spare time she crochets, reads, takes her pooch Lily to the dog beach and for walks, and tries (but fails) to keep her cats Sadie, Archie, and Fritz entertained enough to keep them out of trouble.
Nadia Martinez - Practice Representative
Nadia is the newest member of our team at Ruof Chiropractic and is joining us as our practice representative. Nadia previously worked as a financial advisor with the largest Christian non-for-profit financial services firm in the United States. She advised, educated, and presented to Christian communities all over Illinois and Indiana. We are excited to see her relationships with local churches, food pantries, and charitable organizations expand on the charitable nature of our practice.
Nadia and her husband Hector have been living in the Oak Lawn area for over ten years. Hector was raised on the southwest side of Chicago, while Nadia grew up in the northwest suburbs and north side of Chicago. They have been married for two years and hope to expand their family in the near future. Both Nadia and Hector have enjoyed the benefits of chiropractic care for many years.
Outside of work, Nadia is an avid 8-ball and 9-ball pool player. She regularly participates in leagues and tournaments. Her unwinding activities include pilates, yoga, massages, and chiropractic adjustments. She loves her nieces and babysits every week. She was recently blessed with the role as godmother to both of them.
