Dr. Shaleigh is originally from Pennsylvania and has always had a passion for living a healthy lifestyle. She was very fortunate to have discovered chiropractic when she was just 10 years old. This happened when her dad took her to a chiropractor due to pain in her hip from being a dancer and a cheerleader. After her hip pain had improved, she continued to see her chiropractor for wellness care and was injury free throughout middle school, high school and even as a college cheerleader.
Dr. Shaleigh attended West Virginia University and received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Having a passion for science, helping people and the functions of the human body, her psychology degree was just the beginning of her education. She decided to pursue a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health at East Carolina University. During this time, she began conducting research in holistic alternatives to medication and chiropractic became a large area of focus in her studies.
Following graduation, Dr. Shaleigh moved to Atlanta Georgia where she decided to continue her education by pursuing her doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University. During her doctorate studies, Dr. Shaleigh worked as an assistant cheerleading coach at Life University and was very involved in chiropractic research. She completed a research study prior to graduation in which she looked at the correlation between chiropractic care and drug addiction recovery. She continues to work on the publication of this study and plans to further her research in the field of chiropractic in the future.
Dr. Shaleigh is fueled by her passion of helping people learn to lead healthier lives through holistic healthcare. Her desire is to not just help people individually, but to help impact whole families for generations to come. This desire stems from her long family history of unhealthy lifestyles and prevalence of disease. Dr. Shaleigh has made it her mission to be proactive about her own health and to teach others to do the same.
Outside of serving at Align Life Chiropractic & Wellness Center you can find Dr. Shaleigh playing with her two puppies, Cannoli & Lupo or spending time working out and exploring Georgia with her husband, Dr. Brandon.
