Jackie Kanak

Executive Director, Laser Spine Institute

Profile Overview

Standing still isn’t something Jackie Kanak does well. It’s why when given the chance to grow her skill set, she’s all in and absorbing every ounce of knowledge she can, to help others be their best.

Laser Spine Institute was where Jackie witnessed patients experience the transformative power of relief. It’s what drew her back to our healing halls, this time as Executive Director. Her previous roles included five years as a Medical Assistant and Seminar Coordinator.

Prior to rejoining Laser Spine Institute, Jackie was the Senior Clinic Manager for the University of Oklahoma’s pediatric orthopedic clinic. While there, she motivated and inspired a team of nearly 50 medical professionals.

Jackie earned her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Kansas State University and her master’s degree in Health Care Administration from Ohio University. She’s an active member of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and the Health Finance Management Association.

Giving back to those in need is something near and dear to Jackie’s heart. While working at University of Oklahoma, she became an active volunteer with Live to Give, an organization that supports numerous charitable causes that make improvements in the community.

As a leader, she considers her proudest moments to be watching her team reach for and accomplish their goals.
