Dr. Entner's clinical background and passion is to help women to make sense of their health and her clinical experience is in all aspects of women’s health – from puberty to menopause. Her experience in women’s health has made her a sought after speaker for many North American conferences, magazines and local events. She has had a variety of speaking engagements over the years, travelling to local Rotary meetings, teaching elementary students about fast food, working with university nursing students and culinary students and has even been invited to the Oscars as a natural health consultant.

While busy with her practice, Dr. Shelby Entner’s biggest passion is her family- her chiropractor husband Ryan, CrossFit enthusiast son Aidan and Paralympic swimmer daughter Senna.
