Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

– Helen Keller

After earning her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Luther College, Dr. Lea worked as an RN in the surgical/trauma ICU at the Mayo Clinic, and later in the emergency department of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. She later went on to earn her doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Dr. Lea also holds a diplomate in clinical chiropractic pediatrics, a board-certified specialty in pediatrics and pregnancy. She is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, the American Chiropractic Association and the Illinois Prairie State Chiropractic Association. She is currently working towards a pediatric diplomat from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. In addition, Dr. Lea is trained in Diversified, Gonstead, Pettibon, Thompson, Activator, Toggle and Atlas Orthogonal techniques.

Holcomb enjoys educating and serving families and individuals in the Vernon Hills area about how they can discover their full health potential through chiropractic care.

In her free time, Dr. Lea likes to spend time with family and her dogs, and enjoys traveling. She finds inspiration in the Hellen Keller quote, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Dr. Lea also loves to give back; during her clinical internship at Palmer, she traveled to Bequia, a small island in the West Indies to provide chiropractic care to underserved areas.
