Meet The Directors

PENNY KOVAL

FOUNDER, DIRECTOR OF CARE

As an integrator, Dr. Penny has managed the physical/emotional discomfort of her patients for thirty years.  Through research and experience, Dr. Penny has become a front runner in the area of Whole Person Health. Drawing from her chiropractic background, her expertise in "Integration and Balanced Living" is particularly related to the correlation between physical pain with emotional, spiritual, or mental conflict.

 

Dr. Penny founded The LivingWell Institute, a non-profit organization, in 2005 and has developed a lifestyle education program to help individuals and families achieve optimal health or overcome major chronic issues.  

 

She and her husband, Dr. Dan Koval own Well Care Chiropractic in Hershey, PA. They have three children: Caleb, Kylee, and Karli. Together, the Kovals serve the health care needs of their community through education and the provision of chiropractic, rehabilitation, and wellness services.

STEPH EISENBISE

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Stephanie has 20 years of experience in nonprofit leadership, environmental and community health restoration, and education. Stephanie's passion is to build connections in the community and expand an innovative and experiential approach to health and well-being.

 

Her background in business leadership, partnership development, and environmental restoration provides a foundation to support a unique community-based approach to Whole Person Health & Recovery.

KAREN GISH

DIRECTOR OF INTEGRITY

FOUNDER, THE RIVER EXCHANGE

Karen believes that life is the glorious and heartbreaking adventure by which we discover ourselves and the One who brings life, love, and meaning to each new day. After losing everything in a house explosion in 2014 she came face to face with a world in pain, and through that journey discovered the healing power of hope and a new beginning.

 

In February 2016 she was introduced to Dr. Penny Koval and her vision for LivingWell resonated with Karen’s vision for healing and freedom so she completed a 6-month internship with the LivingWell Institute.  This vision continues to grow as Karen’s 75-acre property overlooking the Susquehanna River has joined with the LivingWell Institute to become the River Exchange, a place for renewal and restoration.

 

Karen serves as the Director of Integrity, provides integrative care, spiritual mentoring, and facilitates several community programs at LivingWell Institute. Her passion is found in photography, outdoor adventure, creative expression, and inspiring people with Hope.
