Kaitlyn Miller is originally from Pensacola, Fl. She received her Bachelor’s of Science from the University of West Florida and is currently attending Sherman College of Chiropractic for a Doctorate of Chiropractic.
“I have chosen to pursue a career in chiropractic because I want to make a lasting, positive impact on the health of my community and I truly believe chiropractic does just that. Chiropractic is more than just relieving neck and back pain; chiropractic care is about removing nerve interference to allow the body to express health at its greatest potential. This restoration of health allows people to live their lives as healthy and happy as possible. I strive to soon be a source of hope and healing for my community.”
When she is not studying chiropractic, Kaitlyn enjoys reading, working out, and hiking with her two dogs.
Bethany May is a Huntsville native and both of her parents grew up in the Rocket City. She started a family in 2008 and enjoyed staying home raising her boys. In the beginning of 2016, Bethany began going back to college and earned her Bachelor’s of Science as well as a certificate in Child Advocacy in May 2020.
Bethany has been adamant about diet, nutrition, and holistic health since 2006 when she experienced relief from intense pain and fatigue that started in her early teens. Since becoming a member of our team, she has experienced the many benefits of upper cervical adjustments, with the most obvious being the improvement in her immune and respiratory system function.
In her spare time, Bethany can be found cooking for her family, snuggling up with a good book, working on a sewing project, or spending quality time with her two sons. She loves children of all ages and would love to one day get her Master’s in clinical social work so as to have a career helping children and families.
