Dr. Tecia Abatelli

Dr. Tecia Abatelli, DC is passionate about helping people live life to the fullest. Dr. Tecia believes NetworkSpinal (NS) care proves to be the best chiropractic approach to helping people achieve their optimal health goals. Over the years, she has seen how this care contributes to a change in a person’s mindset, wellness and overall quality of life. “It’s amazing to see how people transform throughout care and how empowered they are to make changes for themselves and their families.”

Dr. Tecia graduated from Sherman College of Chiropractic, where she obtained her Chiropractic Doctorate degree. Dr. Tecia also holds Bachelor’s degrees in Dietetics and Communications and is a qualified Nutritionist.

In the past, she had the pleasure of working in Boulder, Colorado, serving as an Associate Doctor, marketing coordinator, and technical assistant. She spent countless hours working with thousands of patients to help them make the necessary changes in their health. She also prepared, marketed, and spoke at public events, coordinated local screening events, and networked with local businesses.

As owner of Cheshire Wellness Center she is dedicated to giving, serving, loving, connecting, and contributing to the expansion of health and well-being within the Keene community!

In her free time, Tecia enjoys traveling, playing tennis, hiking, biking, being outdoors, spending time with her husband, Dr. Matt, and playing with her cat Vader.


Dr. Matt Abatelli

Dr. Matt Abatelli, DC is committed to his passion and purpose of assisting people in reaching their authentic, whole, and healthy life experience. He describes this as, “A state of being where your highest potentials in health and yourself are not only known to you but also achieved!”

Dr. Matt’s journey in chiropractic began as an adult patient struggling with chronic Lyme, gut inflammation, brain fog, and fatigue. He had managed his symptoms for years, tried many different therapies, modalities, and medications, but never got to the root cause. It wasn’t until he entered under NetworkSpinal Care that he finally found the resource within himself to heal his health concerns. This achievement was one for which he had almost given up hope!

Today, Dr. Matt has created a whole new energy-rich baseline of health within both his body and his life, fueling his passion to pass this incredible healing wisdom forward to as many people as possible.

Outside of the office, Dr. Matt enjoys playing saxophone in local bands, writing, naturalist studies, and spending time at home or traveling with his wife, Dr. Tecia.

Dawn Berthelette


When you visit Cheshire Wellness Center, one of the people you’ll meet is a relatively new face around the office. Her name is Dawn Berthelette. Having recently moved to southern Vermont from Massachusetts with her husband Daniel, she’s grateful for the opportunity to provide wellness support for you and the Keene community.

As you receive excellent service from this impressive and talented woman, you’ll be fascinated by her background. After an almost 20 year career as a portrait photographer she most recently took some time to live closer to the land in the wilderness of Maine and also worked on an organic vegetable farm in Rhode Island. Her passion and skill for helping people of all ages to create balanced wellness in their own lives by using real food as one of the foundations of good health is phenomenal. In her quest to reverse the effects of a poor diet and a sickly childhood, Dawn received her certificate training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2007 and has worked as a Natural Foods Chef and Integrative Health Coach for the past ten years.

She enjoys spending time exploring new ways to live in better harmony with the cyclical rhythms of the earth and can be found barefoot in the forest any chance she gets, with her little cat Rowan in tow.
