    Dr. Sarah Roseberry is the owner of Boardwalk Family Chiropractic in Manasquan, NJ. She opened the practice in April 2021 after practicing in NYC for many years. She specializes in caring for the pregnant and pediatric populations with special certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Her passion is to bring health and wellness to the families of the Jersey Shore through gentle and specific chiropractic care while educating people on how their body was designed to work and that health comes from within. She loves helping women advocate for themselves and their families when it comes to health, pregnancy, and birth and she works with many holistic birth workers to ensure women get to experience the pregnancy and delivery they deserve.

 Dr. Roseberry’s goal for 2022 is to serve as many families as possible. From preconception to the fourth trimester, birth to adolescence, her love for working with these special populations is constantly growing. She is also excited about her fiancé, Dr. Sean Stewart, joining the practice. He is currently still working in the city but will be coming on full time at Boardwalk Family Chiropractic this year. They are thrilled to finally get to work together and share their passion for creating happy and healthy families and giving back to the community they love so much.

 Impact 100 Jersey Coast is a collection of women of different ages and backgrounds who combine their charitable dollars, experience, and energy to make a tangible difference in our Monmouth County community. The idea is simple and spreading – that there is power that can be unlocked when women pool their funds and give collectively by funding high-impact grants to local nonprofit organizations.  In 2021, we awarded $430,000 to four high-impact projects throughout Monmouth County. Since 2016, we have awarded over $2.0 million dollars to 18 non-profits in our local community and that is just the beginning!

  Impact is built for the busy women! Our members can choose their level of involvement. There is no required time commitment. We encourage any and all women to attend an event to learn more about Impact and to meet other dynamic women in the area. Come see how your individual donation can make a tremendous impact in the year ahead. Now more than ever our nonprofit community needs our philanthropic support. The more members we have, the more grants we can award and the more lives we will impact together! Learn more at www.impact100jerseycoast.org.

 MyKidExperience.com is an experience registry site dedicated to gifting kids with memories that’ll last a lifetime.  You can create an experience registry tailored to your child by choosing from the many experiences listed or even add your own!

Site creator, Julia Brandon, is a mom of two active boys. Her first son Donovan, managed to accumulate a ton of toys prior to the arrival of her second son, Broderick. Between their similar interests, and Broderick being born right before Christmas, Julia soon realized that the boys really did not need more toys, but rather she’d prefer them to get out and explore the world with experiences. With this in mind, she set out to look for a company that provided this- and came up short every time. And from this Mykidexperience.com was born!
