Dr. Kim Gambino

I am on a mission to have people reclaim their health. I feel that our society has changed and they have lost their desire to search for the cause of their problems. Individuals have given away their God-given right to be free of debilitating disease. When I talk about "giving away their right", I mean they have allowed allopathic medicine to replace healing with drugs (medication) to cover up the symptoms. I am eager to work with you to find the cause of your problem so you will not have to cover the symptoms only to deal with the larger problem later.

I did my undergraduate studies at West Virginia University and received my Doctor of Chiropractic at Life University in 1991. I attended WVU with the intention of being a pediatrician and then found that Chiropractic would be a much better way at helping sick children get well.

My passion is centered on my desire to help pregnant woman and children. I believe in the natural healing potential in the human body and that fueled my decision to have 3 home births. Dr. Dan and I believe so firmly in the power of the adjustment, we have been known to go to the hospital and take care of patients and even babies minutes after they are born. When I am not busy being a mom, wife, or chiropractor, I travel extensively either studying how to improve our society or am speaking at chiropractic conferences around the country.


Lori Office Manager

I was born and raised here in San Diego and graduated from Santana High School and then Grossmont College. In 2005, I married my Junior High sweet heart and we have since added three lovely kids to our family. Kassidy (15) is going into high school next year and is our star softball player. Issiac (11) is our desert baby; always outside and loves riding his many different bikes. Harley (3), is the sweetest, most loving, little girl and can often be found running around the office. Make sure you say “Hi” to our “office baby” when you come to the office!

After being lucky enough to be an at-home mom for 3 years when Kassidy was born, I decided I wanted to get back to work. I stumbled upon an ad for a “Dream Part Time Job.” I didn’t know what to expect, but it peaked my interest so I put together a resume and here we are 11 years later. Yes, you read that right, I have been here for 11 years! Full of Life Chiropractic has become an integral part of my life and I can't imagine anywhere else I would want to spend all my time. I can’t wait for you to also experience the love and positive energy that Full of Life Chiropractic provides!


Reem Chiropractic Assistant

HI Everyone, I’m Reem! I am so excited to be part of the Full of Life team. I moved to San Diego 6 years ago, and was exposed to a vast holistic approach with chiropractic care, mindfulness practices, and nutritional education. Previously in the financial field of sales and customer relations for 14 years, my heart spoke to me once I watched the documentary, Trial of Labor. Knowing that listening to our gut, and educating ourselves is key to happiness, and health.

Growing up living a life that showed what I did, said, and ate affects my life was a blessing my parents instilled in me. There are different types of healers. I love working with people who have the same heart felt mission, who are educated, and caring My passion in life is supporting and empowering those in the journey of health and wellness. I am a certified DONA Doula, Postpartum Doula, and currently getting my PTO and Nutritional CT through NASM.
