My husband and I started our practice right out of school in 2010. I am from Jasper, IN and decided to settle into the Indianapolis area after graduating.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from Indiana University. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Life Science and my Doctorate in Chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic.
I studied extensively with post graduate training in functional rehabilitation through the Motion Palpation Institute during and after school. I have also received training in head, neck, TMJ, and orofacial rehabilitation through the Central Institute for Human Performance. I am trained in craniosacral therapy through the Upledger Institute. I have also taken various courses in bodywork and craniosacral therapy for infants, kids, pregnant mothers, and adults.
I have a deep knowledge and understanding in assessing and treating infants with breastfeeding difficulties including tongue and/or lip ties, torticollis, birth trauma, and any other issues you or your baby may be experiencing.
I have a passion for treating each person as a whole and finding the cause of your symptoms. This can be related to biomechanical issues, diet, nutrition, trauma, stress/anxiety, among many other things.
I love treating the whole family and being a mother myself led me down the path of focusing on pregnant mothers, infants, children, and women of all ages. I want pregnant mothers to feel confident in their bodies and empower them to have the birth that they want and desire. It is also very important to me to nurture this new motherhood transition for first time mothers.
I am in practice with my husband, Dr. Steve Smiley. We have a daughter Presley, who is now 2 years old. We have one dog, Josie. Family and health are very important to us, and that is why we take pride in making you and your family as happy and healthy as you can be!
