Our Agency Owner, Dr. Nick

Marketing For Chiropractors Dr. Nick

My passion is marketing, specifically leveraging helpful website content and paid campaigns to spread the message of chiropractic. My name is Dr. Nick Silveri, and I have been a clinic-owning Chiropractor for 12+ years. I say clinic owning instead of practicing because I only regularly saw patients for the first five years of practice. Since then, I have grown my practice from a struggling, stressful office collecting $250,000 per year to a systematized, thriving practice that is on pace to collect $1 Million this year.

Our Team

Jason Barnes

Chief Executive Officer

If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together! I am inspired by what a team can do together to serve a higher purpose when we are all on a mission. Serving others is my passion; the way to do it is to build world-class teams that go further together. I build those teams.

I have been fortunate to help practices throughout my career crush their goals for revenue, retention, and compliance. The only way this happens is by helping practice owners leverage technology, the expertise of others, and teaching accountability at every level. I have learned this while serving as an athlete, a missionary, a team member, and a leader. I have visited over 250+ practices, gaining the perspective of startup clinics and helping those move from single-location businesses to 10+ locations.

After being the COO of a top Chiropractic EHR for 15 years, I am more passionate than ever about helping chiropractors grow.

Brook Hess

Chief Operating Officer & Marketing Director

I have always firmly believed in working for something you love, and that passion for me is marketing. Marketing was my major at the University of Iowa, and since then, I have been fortunate enough to work with marketing teams in several different industries, from electrical distribution to medical devices. I like marketing so much because the game is continually changing. From media print to digital, the opportunities for reaching out to potential clients are endless!

I started working for Nick in the Spring of 2015. At that time, the goal was to focus specifically on implementing marketing strategies for his practice that would reach potential patients in Springfield. Building great content was the long-term strategy, and I am proud to say that The Springfield Wellness Center is now reaping the rewards for our hard work.

The services LVRG Media can provide to a chiropractic office are second to none in the digital marketing industry. I know because I have worked (and still do) for a Chiropractor!

Daniel Desmarais

Chief Financial Officer & Creative Director

I am a chiropractic convert. There’s no salacious backstory, I just wasn’t exposed to it growing up. Quite frankly, I didn’t even know it was an option. If only the chiropractors in my area were actively engaging and educating their community about chiropractic’s potential…

I’ve always recognized the power of storytelling to transform the way we see and understand ourselves and others. Through dynamic copywriting and creative intuition, I’ve watched as our clients use content to capture new leads and grow their businesses beyond what they believed was possible. I delight in breaking down this intimidating venture and giving clients the “white glove” treatment so they can focus on caring for their patients and creating vibrant health within their communities. I do my job so they can do theirs.

Born and raised on the North Shore of Chicago, I have a degree in Geography from UC Berkeley. I know it’s not totally related to marketing, but fellow Geography majors Michael Jordan and Prince William also don’t practice in our field of study. So I’m in good company.

Tyler Piper

New Client Onboarding & Content Manager

I was born and raised in North Dakota, and currently live there with my wife and daughter. I completed my education at the University of North Dakota, and spent nearly a decade as a teacher. During my time teaching, I also worked with local businesses creating websites, graphics, and helping with social media. I enjoyed working with clients and solving problems so much, I transitioned out of teaching and into the content world full time.

My passion has always been helping others reach their goals, and that continues on into my day-to-day at LVRG Media.

When I’m not working, I try my best to enjoy the outdoors year round. 80 degree weather in the summer is great for golf, and subzero temps in the winter are perfect for ice fishing!

Eugene McKinney

Director of Visual Editing

Born and raised in the Chicago area, I have always been drawn to the idea of sharing stories through the visual media. After high school, I pursued my Bachelors of Art Degree in Media Communications from Northern Illinois University. My career in Media spans across several industries, each one with a unique voice that video is able to capture. Since joining the LVRG, I’ve been able to use my passion and skill to bring still motion to life. My focus is supporting the team with dynamic video content that adds value to its client base.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two children in the Western Suburbs of Illinois. When we are not shuffling our kids’ schedules, we enjoy watching a good movie, vacationing somewhere warm and going to hear live music.

Ryan Patamia

Website Designer

I was born and raised in South Florida. Shortly after completing my Bachelors of Science in Studio Art at Florida State University, I moved to Phoenix, AZ, where I worked with several small businesses and agencies needing a creative individual on their team. Today I work for LVRG Media, where I apply both creative & analytical approaches to design and marketing.

At LVRG Media, I love helping our chiropractors look good online, improve their websites, increase search engine visibility, and attain new patients.

Outside of work, I enjoy weekend getaways, festivals, craft beer, video games and technology.

Jason Apryasz

SEO Specialist

I currently reside in Columbus Ohio and have been an Ohio resident my entire life. I Made my debut in web development and online marketing in 2013 while working on a cryptocurrency project that I co-founded and still manage to this day. Fast forward to a year later and I was working full-time as a WordPress developer and SEO specialist for an up-and-coming national marketing agency.

Now at LVRG Media I help our chiropractic clients win online by planning and executing proven SEO strategies that drive organic search traffic to their business.

When not working you will find me at the gym, enjoying outside activities and spending time with family and friends.

Mason Southwood

Lead Generation Specialist

Born and raised in Springfield, Illinois, I live in Cincinnati, Ohio, after graduating from Xavier University. I studied Psychology and Marketing at Xavier, where I discovered my professional interests in strategic marketing, professional selling, and statistical analysis. My coursework exposed me to various opportunities, such as interning as a lead generation specialist for a local startup, interning as a sales representative for FC Cincinnati, and working professionally as a strategic headhunter in the financial and banking industry.

Now at LVRG, I can use my unique experiences to optimize our client’s success! Outside of work, I spend some much-needed time perfecting my amateur golf swing and enjoy quality time with my dog, PJ!
