Hi, I’m Dr. Emily!
For more than 11 years, I have enjoyed my clinical experience as a Functional Medicine Chiropractic Physician supporting thousands of frustrated patients to transform into healthier versions of themselves.
I am a pilot & meteorologist… turned doctor, so you can say I am an ultimate science nerd. God has graced me with the ability to problem solve and link the mechanical systems of the human body with current research and alternative therapies to get you an amazingly successful outcome. You may find me reading, researching and writing after hours and posting on social media about the stuff I love.
