About Kim

While managing First Choice Chiropractic since 1995, Kim Klapp has spoken for many chiropractic universities, colleges, companies and associations.

An author and coach, she founded Assistants for Chiropractic Excellence (A.C.E.) in 2000 which provides quality CA coaching and training via monthly online courses. Kim Klapp teaches chiropractic teams the most up-to-date techniques and communication strategies for generating more referrals, collections and patient compliance.

Kim with late husband, Dr. Tom Klapp, and their daughter, Tori.


“I created Assistants for Chiropractic Excellence (A.C.E.) in 2000 when there was a massive dearth of quality resources for chiropractic assistants. While many DC-based coaching companies have added some CA training to their programs, they remain focused primarily on the chiropractor. Alternatively, A.C.E. is focused on the the entire team. Why? CAs are the gatekeeper for new patients, referrals, retention and collections in a chiropractic office; CAs are truly the most valuable asset in your practice. Furthermore, I actually currently run a chiropractic office in Michigan. Unlike many other coaches and chiropractic gurus, the success strategies that I teach are not based on theory, or what used to work, but on high-volume profitable practice in today’s environment. Whether your practice is long established or brand new, whether you have one CA or a large team, there’s always room for growth. I’m looking forward to helping your team reach new levels of excellence.”
