Business briefs: Snyder opens chiropractic firm, Bardwell takes reins at YMCA

Woodbury grad returns home to open business

Woodbury High School graduate Dr. Andrew Snyder recently opened Snyder Chiropractic at City Walk.

Snyder said his strategy is to not force patients to pay up front or make any special commitments to length of care.

"My goal is to get you better and on with your life," he said.

Snyder graduated from WHS in 2005 and moved back after receiving his doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He said he's excited to serve the local community and give back to his hometown. While at WHS, Snyder was actively involved in hockey, football, and lacrosse.

Snyder will hold a grand opening Saturday, July 27, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The address for the event is 10075 City Walk Drive, Suite C.

The grand opening celebration will include food catered from local businesses including Carmine's, Great Harvest Bread Co., and Nourish. There will be activities for all ages such as face painting and coloring contest for kids as well as prize drawings.

Bardwell named Y's executive director

The Y in Woodbury has a new leader.

Former branch director Heidi Bardwell was promoted to the role of executive director, according to a July 17 news release.

Bardwell steps into the role vacated by Stephanie Chauss after she was named vice president of operations with the YMCA of Greater Twin Cities, where she is now responsible for 13 locations, including Woodbury.

Bardwell, who also serves as chairwoman of the Woodbury Chamber of Commerce and Math and Science Academy School Board member, first began working for the Y at the Eagan location in 1996.

Heidi's extensive community involvement, commitment to Woodbury and YMCA experience will ensure that the Y remains a vital component of this community," Chauss said in the release.
