If you had the privilege to grow up in a small town or currently live in one, you know that you have to step up to make your community vibrant as there are less bodies to serve on boards, volunteer on emergency service agencies, and attend school functions. As the saying goes – if you want to get something done, give the task to a busy person.

This couldn’t ring truer in the case of Dr. Rebecca Kasian, a chiropractor serving the Medora and Dickinson communities. Growing up in the rural Medora area, Rebecca left to attend Chiropractic School at Northwestern Health Sciences University, but returned to her roots to open her practice Little Missouri Chiropractic in July 2015. Not only does she help relieve pain in patients and promote healthy lifestyles through her occupation, but she is also such an asset to the Medora community. She is involved in the Medora Chamber of Commerce where she assists with the annual Hunter’s Feed (fundraiser for Cowboy Christmas in Medora) and organizes the Beer & Bacon event in the fall. This event attracts visitors to Medora, benefiting all businesses.

As a mother of three beautiful children, Rebecca works hard to maintain balance in running her practice and spending time with her family. Thanks to her supportive husband, Mark, Rebecca was able to jump at an opportunity to begin a new practice in Dickinson, Back in Balance Wellness Center LLC, with two other partners.

If something is needed at school, you can always count on Rebecca to provide what is needed or be the organizer for things such as treats during teacher appreciation week. The whole school will likely get a treat when one of her kids has a birthday! She treats her patients and those in the community like family, making herself available to serve patients outside of her posted business hours should an emergency arise. If there is a community function going on that she herself isn’t organizing in Medora, she no doubt is helping or sponsoring the event.

Kudos to Rebecca for returning to her roots and making her community better due to her contributions of time, talent, and treasure, and for being a successful female business owner!
