WDM Watch List

Standout leader from the community featured each month

Thanks to Adam, who has served as West YP Chair this past year, for all his help with West YP, the West Des Moines Chamber of Commerce, and the community over the years!

 Meet Adam Ries.

What college did you attend?

Wartburg College and Palmer College of Chiropractic 

What is your hometown? 

Hopkinton, IA 

Where do you work?

Yost Family Chiropractic

What is your favorite part of your job?

Helping patients get back to living life to the fullest, doing the things they love to do, without health issues holding them back. I also enjoy the relationships I get to make with all of my patients.

What is one of your life mottos?

I am here (on this earth) for a purpose and I need to do all I can to figure out what that is, and take full advantage of it.

What are some things that make you unique?

I enjoy traveling with my wife, Megan, to places where we can hike (especially National and state parks). I was in choir through undergrad, traveling to numerous countries in Europe as well as to Brazil. And, I can talk like Donald Duck.

What have you enjoyed about West YP?

As outgoing chair, having been on the committee before West YP was established, it has been awesome to see how the group has grown, and the success it continues to have. I have made many connections and friendships over the past couple of years.

What are some of your favorite things about West Des Moines?

West Des Moines, to me, has always been the bedrock of success and expansion in the metro. We can look to West Des Moines to see why this area continues to be at the top of numerous “best of” lists. West Des Moines is also where I go to church and has many places to eat, shop, and play.
