Mark Howarter, D.C.


As owner and founder of The Chiropractic Experience here in beautiful Lawrence, KS, my mission has always been to use my resources and talents to help others. So, I have been more than blessed over the past 18 years to do exactly what I LOVE! Everyday, I get to help families, not only to feel better, but to experience more balance and movement in their lives…whether it’s playing with the kids, going on vacation, working in the yard, training for an event or just enjoying a more peaceful night’s sleep…Chiropractic WORKS! And people get well…naturally, and without drugs.
My qualifications, I’m a Cum Laude graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri, and certified in pediatric chiropractic care through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. I’ve been entrusted to care for tiny babies to professional athletes and celebrities that you may know. I’ve also traveled to other countries like Guatemala, Ghana (West Africa) and Uganda, Africa to bring chiropractic, hope and healing to people in need there. You might have seen me around the community or in Baldwin City playing with my kids, volunteering for local service organizations, going to church at Lawrence First Nazarene Church or cheering for the Jayhawks.

I look forward to meeting you, and finding out how chiropractic can help YOU best!

Michelle Beard

Chiropractic Assistant

Hi, I’m Michelle! I have lived in Lawrence since 1972. I’ve been married for almost 34 years and have two grown children. Over the past 28 years I have taught Sunday School and Children’s Church, helped with Vacation Bible School, attended Women’s Bible Studies, and prepared meals for new mommies. I am also very involved with our local Special Olympics team and lead a weekly Book Club for individuals with special needs. In my free time I enjoy crocheting (I’ve made over 100 baby blankets), reading and shopping for clothes.

My true desire after working in many other settings, was to be in an office interacting with people.

I am delighted to be working with Dr. Mark at The Chiropractic Experience and look forward to serving and, hopefully, blessing you!
