Jeanne Ohm was a chiropractor, author and educator. She was the mother of 6 and grandmother to 8. She was the CEO of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), creator and editor of Pathways magazine, and a leader in the chiropractic profession. She was a colleague and friend to countless people in the natural birth and natural health communities. Her energy and enthusiasm for life touched so many, and she will continue to inspire us into the future.
Jeanne was born and raised on Long Island and grew up having known her husband, Tom, since the second grade. They attended chiropractic school together and after graduating in 1981 opened a home office in Media, Pennsylvania where they practiced side by side. They were married for over 41 years. Always balancing work and her growing family, Jeanne began serving the ICPA after her friend and mentor Dr. Larry Webster passed away in 1997.
During her 17 years as CEO of the ICPA she expanded membership from 500 to over 6,000 chiropractors. She developed and taught the Webster Certification course, certifying nearly 10,000 chiropractors in this technique. She inspired chiropractors across the world to care for pregnant mothers and babies by honoring women throughout their pregnancy and motherhood, and supporting a woman’s right to make informed choices for her family.
Jeanne believed that family is the heart and home of our human potential and that the loving and gentle care of chiropractic for each individual strengthens the family, strengthens the community, and opens the possibility for a greater tomorrow. She is beloved and she will be missed by many and remembered forever by her family and friends.
