Who are the people behind this clinic and what drives their passions? They are people like you; they have lived with chronic health issues with seemingly no relief in sight. Because they were tired of being health victims, they fought back…hard. They found hope, healing, and relief. That’s the passion that drives them to help others. Our staff knows, cares and desires to help you find healing, too. Read on.
Kristyn Madalinski, RN, LDHS, Co-Owner, Clinic Director
Kristyn Madalinski, RN, Certified Digestive Health Specialist, overcame her chronic health issues naturally using diet and nutritional supplementation and is passionate about offering similar hope and healing to others. Chronic health disorders, digestive or otherwise, often start with nutritional excesses or deficiencies. Proper testing finds the cause and defines the recommendations needed to restore health and wellness.
After receiving her Registered Nursing license in 1992, Kristyn Madalinski worked her first twelve years in traditional medicine before launching a restorative health practice.
After receiving a diagnosis of depression, starting medication, and being told she would need that medication lifelong, she started researching the disease. She discovered an integrative medical approach to depression and underwent alternative medical treatment. Within six months, she weaned off her medications and has been thriving ever since.
That event changed the course of her career and she has practiced in the restorative health field since her recovery. She has received training under holistic practitioners and has been a health and wellness coach for hundreds of individuals. Her passion is to unlock health and wellness by finding the true cause of chronic disease symptoms. Her certification as a Digestive Health Specialist from the Loomis Institute in Madison, Wisconsin enables her to do just that.
Jen Borley, RN, MSN, DHP, Co-Owner, Clinic Practitioner
Jen Borley is a Food Enzyme Institute Certified Digestive Health Professional at Alo Health. She graduated from Bellin College of Nursing with a Bachelors of Nursing degree in 1998. Jen’s nursing career has been diverse. She has cared for and guided women during pregnancy, helped deliver babies in labor and delivery, worked in orthopedics, neurology, mental health, home health, public health, long term care and hospice. Her desire to guide another generation lead her to complete her Masters in the Science of Nursing from Gonzaga University in 2011. She has served as adjunct faculty at colleges in Green Bay and the Fox Valley.
Jen is dedicated to lifelong learning. Her desire to uncover the root cause of symptoms lead her to explore holistic and alternative approaches to wellness when traditional treatments were not effective for autoimmune issues. She believes that people can reach their wellness goals with education, determination and support. As an Alo Health Practitioner, Jen works with each client to reach their full potential.
Jen and her husband, Scott, have three boys and live in De Pere. When she’s not cheering her boys on along a sideline or in a gym, she likes to tend to her garden, practice photography, watch her chickens, and spend time with family and friends. Her passion for well-being compels her to continue learning, so you will often find her taking courses to expand her knowledge base.
“Our bodies and minds have amazing capabilities! When we nourish our cells adequately, reduce toxic exposure, manage stress appropriately and allow ourselves to rest, we can find balance. I love guiding people on their wellness journeys. Having overcome multiple autoimmune issues using holistic practices, my passion is helping others realize their full wellness potential.” ~Jen

Addie Grace, Clinic Superdog
Addie is our Alo Therapy Superdog. She is currently training to become a Certified Therapy Dog. When you visit Alo Health, you may be greeted by her and her “baby” (a stuffed animal of her choosing). Addie is super smart but is still a teenager. She enjoys running outdoors, getting her belly rubbed and joining the trainers during their exercise classes. She lives with Toni Ver Voort and family, but “works” in the clinic daily.
