Originally from Pennsylvania, Melody moved to Baltimore to attend Towson University. Just like Dr. Loomis, Melody loves the outdoors and hobbies such as hiking, biking, swimming, and hammocking. A huge part of Melody's life is the performing arts, she enjoys Broadway and singing! She is currently taking voice lessons and focuses on learning lullabies for her daughter. Some of her other hobbies include photography, scrapbooking, and traveling. Melody is also an avid essential oil user. She sells Young Living products and truly believes "life is better with essential oils". Her greatest love is being a wife and a mother.
Melody handles all of the daily operations behind the scenes that keep the wheels turning at Carney Chiropractic Center. She is the point of contact for everyone - from patient care, billing, staffing, marketing and more.
"I educate our patients, followers and employees all the time about chiropractic care. It's easy for me to spread the word and invite people to become practice members with us because I've been doing it my whole life. I've been in 5 car accidents too, and, because of chiropractic, I have little residual effects from them. My body was able to completely heal each time. Chiropractic is for everyone - EVERY SINGLE PERSON. Invest a little now to maintain your health or invest a lot later with big pharma and all its side effects. It's your choice."
Born and raised in Frederick, Maryland, Allison moved to Towson, Maryland in 2015 to study chemistry at Towson University. She's a proud mother of two beautiful cats named Flora and Ophelia. In her free time, Allison enjoys painting with watercolors, reading poetry, and taking her cats for walks. A perfect day for Allison includes going to brunch with her friends, attempting a new recipe from Pinterest, then cozying up on her couch at night to watch foreign horror movies with her cats.
Starting off in the wellness field, Allison worked at a health-centered massage therapy office for 3 years. She loves watching people heal and assisting in patients' health goals. She began working at Carney Chiropractic Center in 2019 as the front desk chiropractic assistant. As the "director of first impressions", she'll make you coffee, talk to you about your day, and get you scheduled throughout your care plan.
"I love being a part of people's health journeys. It's extremely rewarding watching patients come in barely able to walk and over time becoming more active and able to play with their kids and live a more carefree, healthy life."
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Jill graduated from Towson University in 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, and again in 2018 with a Master's degree in Human Resource Development: Educational Leadership. Jill is a first-time mom, with her son Owen arriving in October 2021. Jill and her husband, Tyler, live on his family's dairy farm in northern Baltimore County with their 300 cows. Jill enjoys spending time with her family and friends when not working, as well as cheering on the Baltimore Ravens.
Jill has a unique position at Carney Chiropractic, as she started in a hybrid position: in-office Childcare Director for Melody and Lance's son, Lucas, for much of his infant and toddlerhood. While taking on this role, she also entered the Chiropractic Assistant program, and has since gone through much hands-on training while working with patients. Moving forward post-baby, she will return as a part-time Chiropractic Assistant and focus on receiving her full CA license.
"It has been really fun to have such a unique position here at Carney Chiropractic. I was able to focus on Lucas, really displaying my talent and background in early childhood education. To watch him grow and learn has truly been an honor. I have also found a career in something that is totally outside of my education and training, but have loved being part of it. Being a Chiropractic Assistant, you can help and, in turn, watch patients progress in not only their physical health, but mental health as well. Much like teaching, being a Chiropractic Assistant allows you to be that educator for the patients."
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Christian faces each day with a smile. A true people-person, he finds great value and passion in making a positive impact on the lives of others. He has a deep love for his hobbies. He plays volleyball at least 2-3 times a week, whether it be in one of his leagues or in a pick-up game among friends. He is a fierce competitor, and is always striving to be at least 1% better than the previous day. He loves hiking, and he has made it a goal of his to see the most beautiful parts of Maryland over time. He has a deep passion for graphic design, learning his first Adobe software at age 10. He uses that experience to express himself through picture edits and music cover art that he creates for others.
Hailing from the wild plains of childcare, Christian worked as a certified teacher at a childcare facility for 5 years. His passion for chiropractic began years ago when he would stay up until 2 AM watching "ASMR Chiropractic Adjustment" compilations, but his true understanding of chiropractic began when he started working at Carney Chiropractic Center in 2020 as the front desk coordinator and began getting adjusted. He is now proudly enrolled in the Maryland Chiropractic Assistant program and is on his way to obtaining his CA license. He looks forward to meeting new people and helping them feel better on their journey to wellness.
