Kerry Byrne - Front Desk Supervisor
My name is Kerry Byrne, I am originally from Long Island NY but have lived in Florida since 2001. I have 3 amazing almost full grown kids Justyn 20, Brianna 18 and Ashley 16. My girls live with me full time and my son is away at college.
I have worked in the chiropractic field for over 10 years, I started straight out of Medical Assisting school when my kids were younger. I left the field to work in education for a while so that I could be closer to my kids and have a schedule close to theirs; I always missed chiropractic and the caring environment of the chiropractic offices. I love working with our patients and learning who they are. I enjoy helping our patients with their journey of health and educating them on how to help themselves. I truly enjoy celebrating their health successes as they heal and feel better.
