Dr. Julie Howard



Dr. Julie Howard began her career in health care in 1994 after becoming licensed as a practical nurse. Since that time, she has continued to advance her education, obtaining her LPN, RN, BSN, and MSN degrees. She was worked in a variety of nursing areas including: Burn/Trauma, ICU, ER, medical/surgical care, OB/Gyn, postpartum, and office nursing. She also taught clinical classes for Southeast Community College on a couple of occasions and currently is an adjunct instructor for the University of Mary in their Master's of Nursing and Doctorate of Nursing programs.

Dr. Julie chose to extend her career into Chiropractic in 2001 when she enrolled in Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. She attended Palmer College and graduated in 2004. After graduating, she waited to open her own practice for a while and instead worked as an associate in Norfolk, NE. In January of 2006, Dr. Julie chose to open her own practice in Plattsmouth, NE. This practice has been an ever-changing and ever-growing practice. Dr. Julie’s personal philosophy includes always growing as a professional and as an individual. As such, she continues seeking new ways to improve her practice and herself.
This practice is an ever-changing and ever-growing practice. Dr. Julie enjoys expanding her knowledge and experience to accommodate the needs of those who trust her with their health and wellness needs.
