Dr. Anthony received her first chiropractic adjustment at just 30 minutes old by her mom, and has been getting regular chiropractic care her whole life.

As a college athlete, Anthony saw a need for chiropractic care even at the athletic collegiate level. Seeing this sparked a  in her a determination to bring chiropractic care to the world.
As Anthony started to see how kids with serious health conditions started healing better with chiropractic care, Anthony said her new mission to help as many kids and families as possible experience natural health!
