Kristen, Office Manager, Chiropractic Assistant

Kristen moved from Northern Indiana to Summerville in 2014 with her husband and two sons. She has worked in healthcare for the past twenty years focusing mostly on home health hospice. She attended the University of Southern Indiana and studied Health Science. Kristen is highly trained in all therapies benefiting active rehabilitation and exercises. Kristen has mastered the all-natural way with combinations of essential oils and current techniques to not only calm the body but mind as well. She believes in the process of getting better it is crucial to keep a positive mind set. “Seeing people that have tried so many times using conventional methods and feel defeated; to having them reach a place where they are hopeful and striving again to feel better is the most rewarding part of what I do.”
While pregnant with her first son, she began researching a more natural lifestyle that has since led to a slight obsession with nutrition, essential oils and anything pertaining to pregnancy and childbirth. In her free time, Kristen enjoys exploring the Lowcountry with her family. Biking and visiting surrounding beaches are always a fun way to enjoy time with her loved ones on her days off. She is currently embracing homeschooling so that she not only can spend more time with her two sons, but also to be involved in their mental and emotional growth.

Brittany, Chiropractic Assistant

Brittany moved from Indiana to Charleston, South Carolina in 2020. She has 5 years in the chiropractic field. At the age of 16, she went to a chiropractor as a patient and to her surprise she was offered a job that became one of the best opportunities in her life and quickly developed into her passion. “Taking a holistic approach has always been a passion and stepping into the chiropractic field has fed that drive. I am so blessed to watch my patients get better daily.” Something fun about Brittany is that she loves baking and trying new recipes. In her spare time, you can absolutely find her in the kitchen. For now, Brittany is enjoying her single life in Charleston and open to new adventures! Brittany loves to spend her quiet time on the beach with a good book!
