Kellie Allridge started her career in the healthcare field as a pharmacist. After surviving a potentially life threatening car accident which left her with a broken neck at the age of sixteen, she knew she wanted to go into a profession where she could help others. She attended Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from their pharmacy school in 1992. For the next 10 years Kellie practiced pharmacy in various settings. What she discovered during this time was that her favorite part of pharmacy was having the opportunity to educate her patients about their health and medications.
Although Kellie was able to completely heal from her broken neck, she was left with some residual effects. She often suffered from neck pain and headaches. When consulting with her doctor she was told she would have to live with this pain or take medication for it. In 2003 Kellie had a grand mal seizure, which her physician felt was due to the very medication she was taking for the pain. It was at this point the Kellie knew there had to be a better way to approach this problem. After taking a leave of absence from pharmacy so she could take care of herself she was introduced to Dr. Joseph Childs and Dr. Charles Durr. Kellie experienced positive changes in her health almost immediately after starting chiropractic care.
Wanting to use her experience to help educate others Kellie has teamed up with Dr. Childs and Dr. Durr to empower people to take care of themselves. It is her mission to work through the Wellness Education Foundation to reach as many people as possible and educate them about health and wellness.
