Founder, CEO, Lead Doctor
Kari Boudreau, DC
I founded Ambiente Gallerie to further the mission of “helping our community achieve better, improved, and enlightened health.” Health and wellness has always been very important to me and for over 25 years I have provided care to hundreds of people with various conditions and have helped them improve their lifestyles. I believe, with 100% certainty, that people have greater potential for better and improved health. I am so proud of our environment which enhances healing and stimulates inspiration. I hold a Bachelor of Science from Iowa State and Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Science Universities.
I would like to travel anywhere in the world that would increase my understanding of people and cultures and cuisine. Top of my list includes Thailand, Japan, Croatia, and Costa Rica.
When I am not working I'm traveling, cooking with my gourmet dinner club, reading at least a couple of books, planning trips to see friends, taking my dogs to the park, taking mountain bike coaching lessons & traveling to fun trails around the country.
Little Known Fact- I am always learning and taking personality tests. My favorite, The Myers Briggs.

Courtney Bliese, DC
I have a Bachelors in Mathematics with a Minor in Chemistry from University of Minnesota Duluth and a Doctorate of Chiropractic Research Track from Life University. I enjoy forming interpersonal relationships with my patients, helping them find a solution for their health concerns and seeing them thrive as they reach true wellness.
My research focused on the effects of stress on the body and how chiropractic care can help reduce the physiological effects. This translates into my care as well, I'm not only passionate about helping patients reach physical wellness but truly helping guide them into overall wellness so they can improve their quality of life.
If I could travel anywhere in the world it would be back to Switzerland. My grandparents were both born there and going back to learn about our family, explore the country and perfect some family recipes are some of my favorite memories with my grandmother.
In my free time I enjoy reading, going outside and spending time on the water, running and hosting dinner parties and game nights for my friends and family.

Health & Wellness is important to me because without it you have nothing- no enjoyment in any aspect of a person’s life. It really is that simple.

"Ambiente offers such a unique and beautiful environment for our patients. My goal is to have as many people as possible experience this for themselves. I aim to connect everyone to the personalized care they need in a space that feels natural, friendly, and elegant. I am doing this through a wide variety of community outreach and informative events.
I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The Ohio State University in 2016 with a specialization in digital media. I started here at Ambiente in early 2020, and love working in such a creative, vibrant office. When I am not working you can probably find me at the golf course, on the lake fishing, or doing some gaming online with friends.
