Five Questions with Luke Laga, L.Ac.
Owner, Structural Elements® MKE
Chief Brand Officer, Structural Elements® Franchising LLC
1. Tell us about your business!
At Structural Elements® we are Body Engineers, evaluating the human body and providing solutions for orthopedic wellness and athletic performance. We develop long-term relationships with our patients to support them in overcoming injury and achieving their active goals. As wellness providers, rather than offering a one-time fix, we provide continuous care to keep our patients feeling good and doing the things they love.
2. When did you start your business, and what drew you to Milwaukee?
After moving to Milwaukee to study under my mentor and founder of Structural Elements® Doug Bertram, I opened Structural Elements® Milwaukee in November of 2017.
3. Do you have a special connection to the Maryland Avenue Montessori School or MPS?
My son started at Maryland Avenue as a 3K student the month we moved to Milwaukee. The school is a pillar to his life and a centerpiece to the community we have become part of in the city.
4. What is something about your work you are particularly proud of?
Working with patients from all walks of life and in all stages of fitness and health, nothing is more satisfying than helping peoplemove beyond the pain that comes from injury and the daily grind, and empower each person to achieve their own unique goals.
5. Why did you choose to sponsor Maryland Avenue Montessori School's Springfest?
Structural Elements® found its roots in Milwaukee and is always working in exciting ways to both integrate with and support this amazing community. Maryland Avenue Montessori and MPS are keys to the strength and growth of our current and future Milwaukee community, and we are proud to sponsor Springfest.
Thank you to Luke and to all our corporate sponsors for supporting Springfest! Each week leading up to the event, we will shine a spotlight on one of our corporate sponsors, exploring their story within our community. We hope you enjoy getting to know these valued friends of Maryland Avenue Montessori. If you haven't already, please check out their businesses!
