Mariah Encinas

Massage Therapist

I’ve always been interested in the medical field. The idea of helping people and making them feel better has always appealed to me. With massage, you can see the results right away and see how much people appreciate it. After high school, I stumbled upon the idea of massage therapy and after some thought, I knew it would be a good fit. I graduated high school early and started with massage school right away at Universal Spa Training Academy in Downers Grove. I’m certified in hot stone, prenatal, Thai, and cold stone. I grew up in the country so I love to be outdoors! In the summer I love to go camping and go to music festivals. I think any live music is wonderful!

Jenna Pape

Care Coordinator

I am originally from Warrenville, Illinois and moved to Dekalb last spring. I received my undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from North Central College. As a study abroad student in Ecuador, I was able to work at the local hospital for four months and solidify my passion for healthcare.

My last year at North Central allowed me to complete an internship at NAMI DuPage where I researched the neurological pathways of psychotic illnesses. In my free time, I love to spend time outdoors with friends and go bowling with my boyfriend. This fall, I am excited to start my journey towards becoming a chiropractor at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida!

Breanne Hatfield

Medical Care Manager

I have worked at Sycamore Integrated Health for almost 6 years now and have worked several different positions. I started off as a massage therapist my first few years and realized I loved making people feel better. I then transitioned into the role of the floor manager where I had a lot more one on one patient care with the goal being to get them out of pain. I enjoyed the challenge of coming up with a different approach to relieve pain which varied patient to patient as well as day to day.  I am now the medical assistant and love learning something new every day. Overall working at Sycamore integrated Health has opened my eyes on to how much I enjoy health care and working my hardest to make people feel as best as they can. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family. My winters consist of crafting and my summers are spent on the boat. I may not win first place in karaoke but I do enjoy trying!
