Meet the Staff at Absolute Integrated Health – Romeoville
Get to know the very professionals that will be assisting you during the process!
Meet Dr. Matthew Schultz, D.C. - Romeoville Clinic Director
Dr. Schultz attended Lewis University where he received his Bachelors of Science in Chemistry. He then continued his education at Logan College of Chiropractic where he completed his Doctorate in Chiropractic, as well as a Bachelors of Science in Human Biology.
An important moment in Dr. Schultz’s career was when he was chosen to be apart of a small group of students that worked in the Jefferson Barracks VA hospital to assist veterans in their recoveries. He says it was an enlightening experience because they got to help with cases uncommon in the civilian population. The opportunity has taught him to think outside the box when it comes to traditional patient care.
Dr. Schultz began working at AIH in August of 2013. Dr. Schultz aims to take a proactive approach with patients in the education of their treatments and handle all of their questions.
He hopes his approach enlightens patients on the technical aspects of their treatment and how it is going to change their lives for the better.
Meet Jen - Front Desk / Assistant Manager
Jen received her EMT license at the Romeoville Fire Academy. Her training was fast-paced and hands-on which was an exciting and preferred aspect for her. Much of her training has actually prepared her for the responsibilities she has here at AIH.
Jen began working at AIH in September of 2017. Jen is the Office Manager of the Romeoville location and is responsible for scheduling team members and patient appointments. She also assists the doctors with transitions between patients and setting up exams, while also handling all communications that come in and out of the facility.
Jen’s favorite part of working here at AIH is that she is able to witness the progression of patients through their treatment and see their transformation as they get better in the program. She says as their pain diminishes patients are noticeably happier and more outgoing. She is excited to see them regain their health and get their life back!

Meet Melissa - Nurse Practitioner
Melissa earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at Lakeview College of Nursing and then enrolled at Olivet Nazarene University where she received her degree as a Nurse Practitioner.
