Meet Dr. Maria Fournier

Dr. Maria Fournier is a 5th generation Texas Aggie. But now says she is from Lafayette and she loves it.

A career as a chiropractor was not Dr. Maria’s plan. Like many chiropractors, a personal experience with chiropractic changed her path.

“I was on a pre-med track,” remembers Dr. Maria. “But I was plagued by symptoms from an old high school car accident. It started with shoulder pain and then became neck and mid-back pain. I remember watching a TV drama that featured a chiropractor. I wondered if chiropractic could help me.”

After doing her research she began chiropractic care. After she got relief, her plan to become a medical doctor was discarded. Instead, she was off to Texas Chiropractic College. That’s where she met Dr. Scott.

“After graduation we decided to practice here in Lafayette,” says Dr. Maria. “This is where Scott is from. With his family, the food, music and Cajun culture, we knew this would be a great place to raise our family.”

Relieving Pain Naturally

She gets a lot of joy seeing her patients recover. Especially when they start out a bit cautious as she was. Being able to relieve pain naturally, without pushing pills, fulfills her original dream of being a doctor.

Outside of the Practice

When Dr. Maria isn’t in the practice helping patients, you’ll find her working out, running, swimming and serving as a taxi driver for daughter and son. Charlotte is in the gifted music program and Nate is in the gifted academic program.

Amazingly she still has time to deliver meals for the United Way and volunteer as a Casa Child Advocate for abused or neglected children.
