Dr. Ross is grateful to be back serving Carteret County at Barnum Chiropractic Center where he strives to sit along side all patients and guide them through the process of decreasing pain and maintaining overall health. As always, Dr. Ross looks forward to meeting all perspective patients and providing a no charge consultation to discuss their problems and the ways in which he can help them achieve their goals from decreasing pain to living a healthier lifestyle.
As an Office Administrator, my job is to oversee the office operations and I am committed to making our patients and their families experience in our office an amazing one! I joined the Barnum Chiropractic team in 2015 and have over 17 years of medical office experience. My goal is to incorporate the wealth of knowledge and customer service that I have acquired over the years to best serve our patients and their families.
I am a Carteret County local, in which I still reside, along with my husband and three children. I'm always ready for a boat ride and, together as a family, we enjoy summers at the Cape.
I have been a part of the Down East community my whole life. I was an early graduate from East Carteret High School and I became a Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant in January 2018. Working as a Chiropractic Assistant, I have the ability to help others achieve their goal to become healthier and get back to doing the things they love! It is very rewarding to be a part of our patient's improvement and healing. As a Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant, I have been able to bond with each patient to make them feel comfortable and show them that I genuinely care. If I'm not working at Barnum Chiropractic Center with patients, you can usually find me out fishing or at Shack! I love calling the Crystal Coast home and the wonderful people of this community my family!
