Dr. Dawn Thomas

Dr. Dawn Thomas

Dr. Dawn started out in the medical field as a registered nurse for ten years prior to being introduced to chiropractic. She spent many years working on a cardiac step-down unit in a hospital in Lima, Ohio. Dr. Dawn’s introduction to chiropractic came after exhausting all other medical routes for her daughter who struggled with neuro- developmental delays including delayed speech, balance and coordination challenges, and fine motor delays. She also struggled with sleeping habits and constipation at an early age.


Through regular chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Dawn’s daughter began making great developmental strides. Her sleeping difficulties began to disappear and her vocabulary quickly exploded. Constipation was a thing of the past. Dr. Dawn and her husband quickly fell in love with chiropractic and the science behind it. They knew that they had to share the hope that they had found through chiropractic. After much thought and prayer the Thomas’s moved their family to Georgia so that Dawn could work toward her doctorate of chiropractic degree at Life University

During Dr. Dawn’s time at Life University she attended additional seminars focusing on pregnancy and pediatrics. She spent her internship working with Dr. Tony Ebel, a world-renowned pediatric chiropractor and his team in Illinois. She will forever be grateful for this experience. In her words, “It gave me the confidence and certainty needed to become a pediatric chiropractor.” Dr. Dawn now assists Dr. Tony Ebel and his team training and certifying other pediatric chiropractors through The Pediatric Experience. She is also certified in the Webster technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).

Dr. Paola Nieves


Dr Paola was born and raised in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, where she found chiropractic at a later age after years of suffering with scoliosis & intense headaches. The care she received and the results she experienced inspired her to pursue a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

Shortly before moving from Puerto Rico to Georgia for chiropractic school, she was able to work for a local pediatric chiropractor in her community. This opened her eyes to the missing piece she had seen so many parents struggle with in the search for health for their families. She was hooked! It quickly became the direction of her study in at Life University.

She is passionate about helping others find hope through chiropractic.

When Dr. Paola is not serving our practice members in the office, you will find her exploring outside with her dogs, Ruu and Cooper. She also loves movies and anything Harry Potter...


During Dr. Paola’s time at Life University she quickly became interested in furthering her education in pediatric chiropractic. She has completed many pediatric courses through the ICPA (International Pediatric Chiropractic Association) and is certified in Pediatric and Family Care through The Pediatric Experience.

Dr. Nikki Emrich

Dr. Nikki Emrich

Dr. Nikki was born and raised in Farmington, New Mexico where she fell in love with working with kids. She first began going to a chiropractor for back pain issues while she was in high school. While under chiropractic care, her back pain was significantly improved, but she also noticed a massive shift in her hormonal health. Having a long history of hormonal issues with no answer to the cause, it was only when she was under consistent, neurological-chiropractic care did her hormones stabilize and begin to function properly! Nikki began to dive deep into chiropractic and the role of the nervous system.

After graduating from undergrad and lots of praying, she decided to move to Marietta, Georgia to attend Chiropractic school at Life University.

While in school she attended The Pediatric Experience Club where her whole outlook shifted and began to explore the world of pediatric and prenatal chiropractic care in depth.

In her off time, Dr. Nikki loves to spend time with her fiancé who is also a chiropractor in Auburn, Alabama. They spend their off time with family, outside hiking, or watching movies and sports games.

While in school, she attended The Pediatric Experience Club where she served as a leader in the club and continues leading chiropractic students in clubs all over the country. While in school she served as a Scanning CA and learning all about neurological scans at Perfect by Design. She spent her internship at the same space where Dr. Dawn did working with Dr. Tony Ebel, a world-renowned pediatric chiropractor and his team in Illinois. She is certified in Pediatric and Family Care through The Pediatric Experience and is Webster certified. She is currently working to finish her Birth Fit Leader and Coach Certification to continue serving the moms in our community!

Dr. Jordan Cline

Dr. Jordan experienced many health challenges as a child including allergies, asthma, GI issues, & recurrent illnesses. She saw a myriad of specialists in an attempt to discover the root cause of her aliments, but never received the answers she was desperately searching for.

When Dr. Jordan was a teenager, her family began seeing a chiropractor and she finally discovered what she had been looking for all along. Her entire family experienced improved health while under chiropractic care, but the most dramatic changes occurred for herself and her younger brothers. They were never healthier or happier than when they were under consistent, neurologically based chiropractic care. By experiencing firsthand the remarkable transformations that chiropractic made in her life and in the lives of her younger brothers, she knew that she had to explore chiropractic deeper & understand why.

After earning her Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology from LSU, she enrolled at Life University and moved to Marietta, Georgia to learn everything she could about chiropractic. While there, she fell in love with caring for kids and pregnant moms. She became passionate about educating and empowering families to take charge of their health through natural means and realized her deep, burning desire to help the next generation thrive.

When Dr. Jordan is not serving pregnant mamas and kiddos in the office, she enjoys practicing yoga, baking, and spending time outdoors with her husband, Andrew, and their two sons, Roman and Lincoln.

During Dr. Jordan’s time at Life University she attended numerous seminars that increased her knowledge of neurologically based chiropractic care specifically focused on pediatrics and pregnancy. Through active participation in many clubs including Functional Neurology and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) she gained the valuable skills necessary to meet the challenges of caring for these special populations. Dr. Jordan has extensive training in prenatal chiropractic care and is certified in the Webster Technique through the ICPA. She is currently working to finish her certification through The Pediatric Experience for Pediatric and Family Care.
