Dr. Carri holds two doctoral degrees—Chiropractic and Naturopathic Medicine. Additionally, she has training in Functional Medicine and The Kalish Method, and is a Certified Gluten Practitioner.

Dr. Carri has been married for eighteen years to her husband Benoȋt, who is also a chiropractor. They have two rescued Basset hounds, Bailey and Sammi, who couldn’t be chiropractors because of their lack of opposable thumbs and propensity for slobbering on patients. Carri and Ben like to travel, hike, and just spend time together.
