Hey y'all! My name is Dr. Brandon or Dr. B! Here's a little bit about me...I am a Christ-follower, husband to my beautiful wife of 18 years, Breann, father to my 6 amazing children, and a pediatric, prenatal, and family-focused chiropractor. My journey with chiropractic started way back in middle school when a bully grabbed ahold of my backpack and pulled me backward to the ground. I had muscle spasms in my low back and a local chiropractor from my hometown (Washington, IN) helped restore my function. I have received regular chiropractic adjustments ever since.
I first moved to the beautiful city of Knoxville right out of high school. I attended Johnson Bible College (now Johnson University) in South Knoxville and graduated with a double major in Bible and Church Music in 2007. My first career out of college was in Worship Ministry. I served in a local church for 5 1/2 years and another church in northeastern Ohio for 5 years. After almost 11 years in vocational ministry, I felt God calling me out of it and into chiropractic.
I, my wife, and 3 children (at the time) took the leap of faith and moved to St. Louis, MO where I attended Logan University College of Chiropractic. My time at Logan further solidified my passion for serving families. I had the opportunity to do half of my clinical rotation in the Adult Clinic and the other half in the Pediatric Clinic at Logan University. My passion grew immensely for serving families and witnessing the vast array of benefits of chiropractic firsthand.
Three years and 2 additional children later, I finished my training at Logan and moved my family back home to Tennessee. Once back, I had the opportunity to do my preceptorship under Dr. Devin Reissing, one of the best pediatric chiropractors in East Tennessee. I learned so much from Dr. Devin and his wife Ashley. All of these experiences allow me to better serve my CFC family and offer excellent individualized care to families in our community!
My family and I are so glad to be back home in the greater Knoxville area. We missed our family, our beloved Basswood Church, volunteering on the praise team at church, the mountains, VOLS football, sweet tea, southern hospitality, and hearing "Hey Y'all!" We are so blessed to be part of and to serve this wonderful community! We look forward to doing life together!
