Dr. Elizabeth Baker:

Here’s what she wants you to know about her:
I was born in Nashville, TN as a 5th Generation Nashvillian!

Got my undergraduate degree from The University of Tennessee with a B.S. in Animal Science and a minor in Biology. I had the intentions of becoming a Veterinarian until in a moment a cat named “Dumpster” made me see that this was not my path. Though I still have a special heart for animals I had a shift and a short moment of enlightenment and I decided I would then be a Chiropractor. Earning my D.C. in 2010 from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC. I made my way back to Nashville where I started working as an associate, and quickly transitioned to a Private Contractor. 

A year later I was faced with either leaving this location to open up from scratch or to purchase the office I had been in for 3 years. I opted to stay and immediately began changing EVERYTHING.  I learned and absorbed as much as I could from those who seemed to have their business sense together. I took some wonderful advice from multiple different coaches I’ve invested in and started to dig the bordering Bankruptcy practice to almost a half million a year practice in just a few short years!

I began to see that the times where I saw the biggest business growth came in times where I was not just focused on gaining new patients but focusing on being authentic with the ones I had already acquired. I realized patients need their medical professionals to see and treat them as fellow people, not just another patient. This then gave me more confidence to start getting out and educating my community through speaking engagements (sure some of it is to gain new patients of course). I saw where different styles of speaking got the audience more interested in Chiropractic vs other styles. In 2017, I started a Radio Show in Nashville called A Guide to Healthy Living where we talk different topics and tie them into chiropractic.

I won the 2018 Rising Chiropractor of the Year in Tennessee from the Tennessee Chiropractic Association.
I’ve been a part of the TCA’s Realign Your Thinking public awareness campaign and was featured in the PSA produced for this campaign.

Participating with TCA’s Chiropractic Day on the Hill speaking to our legislatures about Chiropractic.
Active member with the League of Chiropractic Women.
Mentor with Women’s Voice’s Matter.
On the board of Reagents for Sherman College of Chiropractic
I’ve been voted Brentwood’s Best Chiropractor in 2016, 2017, & 2018!
I’ve been featured three times in our local Brentwood Lifestyle’s Magazine.

I had my 1st speaking opportunity for the Chiropractic Profession this Summer in June at ChiroSushi in Las Vegas.
