Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Dr. Marilyn and I grew up in Middle Tennessee. I attended Parker University in Dallas, TX to obtain my Doctorate of Chiropractic after discovering my passion for serving pregnant women, young kids, and families! I am a huge advocate for physiological birth, empowered pregnancies, and birth freedom. I feel like I was called to serve the community out of abundant love & to empower all women to respect their divinely-created bodies. I am passionate about addressing childhood stress & trauma with chiropractic care. Offering holistic, non-pharmaceutical options for health is My life’s pursuit.
