Meet The Team
Dr. Steve was born and raised in Long Island, NY. Growing up, he competed in several sports, including lacrosse and football. As a competitive athlete in contact sports, he suffered from recurring shoulder dislocations that later caused chronic pain and discomfort throughout his mid back.
Dr. Steve received a lacrosse scholarship to play at Lenoir-Rhyne University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. Throughout his studies, Dr. Steve spent time working with a chiropractor that diagnosed him with a thoracic spine scoliosis. He began receiving chiropractic care and noticed that the adjustments not only helped reduce and eliminate his pain, but also improved his overall function and athletic performance. This experience drove Dr. Steve to want to give back to athletes like himself.
Dr. Steve attended Life University in Marietta, GA, where he completed his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. During his time in the program, Dr. Steve became interested in functional neurology and functional nutrition, as he discovered that they are great additional tools for helping people improve their health.
His mission as a chiropractor is to assist people in overcoming obstacles that limit them from achieving their health goals, as well as support athletes through injury prevention and recovery.
Dr. Steve is also a lacrosse coach with Team 91 Charlotte and continues to help athletes of all ages optimize their health and athletic performance.
Dr. Lindsay grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. She began her health education journey at UNCW, initially pursuing a degree in nursing. After working as a nurse aide and witnessing the considerable effects that conventional modern medicine methods had on patients’ health and vitality, she sought to help people through more natural and holistic approaches to health care. Dr. Lindsay ultimately finished her undergraduate studies at North Carolina State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition.
While completing her degree at NCSU, Dr. Lindsay spent time working with various health care professionals. During this process, she was introduced to a local chiropractor and began receiving care. It was at this point she personally experienced the true power of chiropractic in helping the body function optimally and heal innately. After only a month of care, Dr. Lindsay noticed that she was no longer struggling with intense digestive issues, something she had experienced her entire life. She developed a great appreciation for the chiropractic profession and knew that it was how she wanted to help people.
Dr. Lindsay attended Life University in Marietta, GA. During her time in the doctor of chiropractic program, she became passionate about providing vitalistic chiropractic care and inspiring her patients to adopt healthy lifestyle habits. She has developed a special interest in serving women and children, and has strengthened her experience serving these populations through extensive courses, seminars and mission trips.
Dr. Lindsay is also a certified yoga instructor and continues to work on developing her base of holistic healing and living knowledge that can be passed on to her patients.
Dr. Sydney grew up in Fort Branch, Indiana. She began her higher level education journey at Indiana State University, initially pursuing a degree in nursing in hopes to work in the Organ Procurement Organization realm. After seeing how modern health care was centered around medicine she went back to the drawing board on what she wanted to do. After a few degree changes, she ended up graduating with a Bachelors degree in Human Development and Family Studies. Upon graduation, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee where she worked alongside hospitals and families that had just lost a loved one and helped facilitate the donation process.
Starting at the age of 3, Dr. Sydney began seeing the local chiropractors in town and continued care with them until leaving for chiropractic school. She used them as her primary care physicians which is ultimately what lead to her differencing opinions on the modern healthcare system in undergrad. It was also during her time working with families who were grieving the loss of a loved one, that she realized how big of a need there was for more preventative care within the healthcare system.
Dr. Sydney attended Logan University in Chesterfield, MO. During her time in the doctor of chiropractic program, her passion for providing preventative wellness grew. She also has a passion for serving pre and postnatal women and children. While she was completing her degree at Logan, she was accepted into a specialty rotation in pediatrics. Dr. Sydney is certified in Webster Technique and acupuncture. She continues to further her education in these populations through seminars, mission trips, and coursework.
