In Good Hands chiropractor: practice opens in Wolfeboro with assistance from WEDCO

Dr. Renee Tetreault cites whole body, whole life benefits of chiropractic care

WOLFEBORO — Just in time for those New Year’s resolutions for better health, Dr. Renee Tetreault opened In Good Hands Chiropractic, PLLC, on Elm Street, an endeavor brought forth with many local helping hands, in fact.

After earning her Doctorate of Chiropractic at Life University in Marietta, Georgia, and spending the requisite amount of time earning credit hours and passing four national boards to become licensed, Dr. Tetreault set her sites on opening her own practice in Wolfeboro. She chose Wolfeboro as her husband, Matt Tetreault, works as a guidance counselor at Tuftonboro Elementary School and she also worked locally at other chiropractic practices – filling in for vacations and such -- after earning her license. In March 2016, she “jumped in with both feet,” and when she met with a business mentor from SCORE Lakes Region, he recommended she speak with the Wolfeboro-based WEDCO [Wentworth Economic Development Corp.], a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and support businesses and the creation of employment opportunities by providing development assistance and financing.

WEDCO holds 24th annual meeting at Sap House Meadery

OSSIPEE — The leadership and board of directors of the Wentworth Economic Development Corp. held the organization’s 24th annual meeting at the Sap House Meadery in Center Ossipee on Tuesday, Jan. 10.

The event provided an opportunity for attendees to see the fruits of the WEDCO Revolving Loan Fund, along with funding from the Mount Washington Valley Economic Council. It was this funding enabled Sap House Meadery founders and co-owners Ash Fischbein and Matt Trahan to significantly expand the business and production by renovating the vacant abutting property as well as their original building. Fischbein led a tour of the renovated Mead Pub and the production/brewing area, and reported that sales – and visitations -- have risen exponentially.

Following introductions and networking over coffee and muffins – too early for mead tasting – Board President Daniel Mills of GI Plastek recapped the organization’s accomplishments.
