Dr. Brandy Ferrara has always had a passion for holistic healthcare and nutrition.  After graduating from National University of Health Sciences as a Doctor of Chiropractic she went on to obtain her Masters in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.  While setting up a private practice, she started to teach anatomy and physiology and decided that this was where her career path should take her.  She has lectured on nutrition and anatomy and physiology at numerous colleges and universities in Wisconsin for over 7 years, both online and in the traditional classroom.  She has also taught graduate and undergraduate courses for Huntington College of Health Sciences in Knoxville, TN.  

Dr. Ferrara is working towards becoming a Certified Clinical Nutritionist and has held several clinical positions in the medical field.  As an intern, her main patient clientele was nutrition centered, which she treated using holistic care.  She also has a passion for botanicals and nutrition for children. 

Recently, Dr. Ferrara has published articles for LiveStrong.com and is developing curriculum for various colleges.  While spending time with her family, she enjoys cooking and outdoor activities.  “Having two young daughters keeps me busy, but I love teaching them how to live a healthy life through proper nutrition and active lifestyles.”
