Gena Bofshever, DC is a Plantation chiropractor who serves Plantation and the greater Fort Lauderdale area.
Dr. Gena Bofshever
“My mission is to motivate and inspire people to live life to its fullest potential.”
With a zest for life as vibrant as her personality, it is no wonder that Dr. Gena Bofshever has become one of South Florida’s most sought-after Chiropractors. An accomplished name in the industry and a 2015 Opencare Patients Choice Winner with a powerful ability to connect with clients on all levels, Dr. Gena prides herself on helping clients commit to a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle. For seven years, she has utilized her passion for prenatal, pediatric, and family wellness care as a driving force behind her mission, and has recently opened her own center, Dr. Gena Chiropractic, in Plantation, Florida, where she thrives on enhancing the lives of others through wellness care and a wonderfully positive attitude.
Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Dr. Gena felt a calling to health and wellness from a very early age. Following her graduation from the State University of New York at Binghamton with a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology, she worked as a fitness trainer at a well-known New York health club chain. While she enjoyed assisting clients in reaching physical fitness goals, Dr. Gena knew she had to find a way to heal her clients on a deeper, more meaningful level. After developing a love for chiropractic care through trusted family members already engaged in the practice, Dr. Gena set her sights on a career in the industry and enrolled in Life University to obtain a Doctorate in Chiropractic.
Through the course of her education, Dr. Gena discovered a love for working with pediatric clients as well as expectant mothers. She embarked on post-graduate training to build on her talents for working with young children through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). To date, Dr. Gena is now one of a select few chiropractors in South Florida certified in the Webster technique, restoring balance to the pelvis ahead of labor and birth. For the first three years following graduation from Life, Dr. Gena further developed her skills at a clinic in Pennsylvania, before moving to Florida to build a business of her own. While in practice in PA, Dr. Gena learned first-hand how to apply the practices of chiropractic care at a high-volume family practice.
Now comfortably practicing in a state-of-the-art location, her patients include expecting mothers, newborn babies, children, and an impressive list of wellness clients of all ages. Regardless of age or need, one constant remains the same – Dr. Gena’s adoration and commitment to the individuals and families she serves on a daily basis. Though she tells each patient she sees, “Your health is in your hands, my hands are here to help,” she doesn’t stop there. Dr. Gena enthusiastically educates clients on the Five Pillars for Optimal Health, a holistic view on living that she not only preaches, but practices as well. Starting each visit with a positive affirmation and ending with a hug, every client bears witness to Dr. Gena’s absolute-allegiance to their well-being, a practice that no doubt makes her a family favorite, with a radiant spirit to boot.
As part of her dedication to a life lived holistically, Dr. Gena firmly believes in paying it forward. She regularly engages in community activities to bring awareness to wellness beliefs and gives of her time to multiple charities. She participated in a mission trip to the Dominican Republic with a group of hundreds of Chiropractors, to provide care to women and children in underprivileged areas. Through her work with the Boys and Girls Club, Dr. Gena was nominated for the 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County award. Additionally, she volunteers for Mothers Against Destructive Decisions (MADD) and the PACE Center for Girls. Recently, she was also a committed planner and participant with Deliver the Dream, which raises money for the families of people with disabilities to be able to engage in fun, stress-relieving health retreats. Dr. Gena rounds out a lifestyle that nourishes her soul as a member on numerous boards, including Femfessionals and The Plantation Chamber of Commerce.

Our newest member on the Dr. Gena Chiropractic team, Jewel Perry Pena, joins us as a committed health and wellness champion, and a hands-on, energetic chiropractic assistant.
With a background in building and nurturing client relationships coupled with a deep desire to learn and grow within her career, Jewel spent time in customer service-focused roles before joining Dr. Gena’s team. After studying Sociology at Sante Fe College in Gainesville, Florida, Jewel expanded on her talents in digital marketing, event planning, and social media management while working as a service representative with a local auto trader.
Jewel quickly realized a desire to build on her ability to connect with others and make them feel comfortable. After starting out as a dedicated Dr. Gena Chiropractic patient, she is now on a path to building a wellness-focused career. Jewel is also currently working towards receiving a yoga certification, while remaining committed to keeping meditation and mindfulness a part of her daily life.
Jewel was raised in North Miami Beach, Florida. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her three dogs and cat, most likely at the local dog park. She is a proud volunteer with the Make A Wish Foundation of Broward county, participated in a triathlon to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and was once awarded “Service Representative of the quarter” in a previous role.

With so much pride, we introduce you to our newest team member, Helice Bjorklund. Helice is a professionally trained massage therapist, who obtained her license to practice the art of massage from Florida College of Natural Health.
Born in New York City, NY, Helice moved to South Florida at the age of 10 with her family.

With her compassionate, patient, and positive nature, Helice excels at achieving her goals of making others feel great, while she remains dedicated, ambitious and determined to further her knowledge base in her industry. She is currently planning to obtain certification in craniosacral therapy and Reiki.

As someone who has always instinctually felt the calling to help others, it’s no wonder that Helice began a career in massage therapy. Since working as a massage therapist, Helice is proud of having been able to “create a safe, calm, and healing space” for her clients.
