Alexus and Weston Squires have spent the past 11 years preparing for their respective health care careers. Their education and training has taken them many places away from Mason County, where they both grew up. Now, the couple has decided to return home. 

Alexus, 28, is a doctor of podiatric medicine and surgery. Weston, 30, is a doctor of chiropractic. 

Both are alumni of Mason County Central High School; Alexus graduated in 2010 and Weston in 2009. They currently live and work in Milwaukee where Alexus is completing a three year foot and ankle surgical residency training at Wheaton Francisican/Ascension Wisconsin and Weston works at a chiropractic office. 

Beginning January 2021, Weston will return to work alongside his father, Dr. Lewis Squires, at Squires Family Care Chiropractic, 414 W. US 10, Amber Township, just outside of Scottville. In July 2021, Alexus will begin seeing patients at her clinic, West Michigan Foot & Ankle, 333 N. Jebavy Dr., Pere Marquette Township, a medical practice previously owned and operated by Dr. Al Mast, who retired in 2019.
“This has been a dream of ours to live, work and raise a family in a community we love so much,” Alexus said. The two began dating in high school and were married in August 2019.

Alexus is the daughter of David and Tonia Cox. She grew up on her family’s farm in Custer Township. Weston is the son of Dr. Lewis and Wanda Squires. He grew up in Amber Township. 

Alexus said she became interested in medicine while taking the allied health course offered by through the West Shore Educational Service District’s Career and Technical Education program. 

“My first job in high school was at Ludington Foot & Ankle Clinic where I worked for Dr. Alan Mast, who helped guide me onto the career path of podiatric medicine,” Alexus said.

Weston grew up in a chiropractic family. He also credits his sports background as an influence for his career choice. “With such a heavy sports background I became fascinated with how the human body operates,” he said. “This lead me to continuing my studies after high school to specialize in human physiology, anatomy, and biomechanics. Seeing first hand the connection of my studies with the work of chiropractic, I knew this was the career I needed to pursue.”

Alexus has a bachelor of science degree in human biology from Michigan State University and a doctorate of podiatric medicine from Des Moines University. 

Weston received a bachelor of science degree from Michigan State University with a major in kinesiology and a doctorate of chiropractic medicine from Palmer College of Chiropractic. 

“We are ecstatic to serve the members of our community which have always motivated us to excel within our specialties,” Weston said.

“Our mission as a couple is to provide the highest quality evidence based care to our patients and to promote the health and well-being of our community,” Alexus said.
