Originally from Michigan, I grew up with a large family. My mother was one of eight which has given me a very large extended family. I have been around kids and babies my whole life. I used to dream of the day I was able to become a mother, in fact, I remember praying to God before bed that he would let me be a mommy before anything else. Graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in Advertising, and working for General Motors for several years, I quickly realized I was not in the right career.
I couldn’t let go of this feeling that my true passion was still waiting for me. After job shadowing my cousin in his chiropractic office for one day, I quit my job and put my condo up for sale. I was all in, without hesitation, and I knew Chiropractic was the job that aligned with my passions. Moving to Marietta, GA to attend Life University turned out to be the right choice for me…it was there that I met my husband, Dr. Nate Gindele. He and I had our first child, Garin, while still living in Marietta and shortly thereafter moved to Florida to start our practice. We have since welcomed our daughter, Teagan to our family and are enjoying our team of four!
Building our own practice has been an incredible learning experience, and gave the opportunity to help many children throughout the years. I have recently made the decision to care solely for prenatal and pediatric patients out of one of our offices in Fort Myers, Florida. After receiving certification from the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP), I have been able to take the prenatal and pediatric portion of my practice to a completely different level than most other chiropractors. I strive to ensure that every patient who comes through the door has a completely unique experience. Care and compassion for the pregnant mom-to-be and building a solid foundation of trust from the very beginning is crucial in our office. You really feel the love when you walk into our office.
Because I’ve had patients move away or refer me to their out-of-state friends and family, I wanted to be able to offer a bit of that care, compassion, and advice remotely through this new website. DoctorBrie.com is intended to be the go-to resource for overall health and wellness during pregnancy and as your child grows.
About Dr. Brie
About Dr. Joann
Perinatal & Pediatric Chiropractor
I received a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland University-Kansas City. I have special training in prenatal, postnatal, and pediatric chiropractic care and I'm in the process of completing my certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). I'm certified in Webster Technique, a technique developed to keep the pelvis of pregnant mothers aligned for an easier pregnancy, labor and delivery. Preparing and empowering the body to do what it was designed to do is one of my favorite roles as a chiropractor.
I am married and have two children, a daughter and a son. I’ve had the privilege of raising them in a chiropractic environment that teaches them that they are healthy, strong individuals with all the potential in the world. That is what I love about pediatric chiropractic care. It gives me the opportunity to instill a wellness mindset so children can grow into happy, healthy adults who believe in the power of their own bodies.
When a patient comes to see me at the office, my number one priority is to provide compassionate care and make sure they feel heard. I want it to be a safe space to discuss and improve their health. I think the Pediatric and Perinatal Chiropractic Center is the perfect place for that! It would be a true honor to care for you and your family.
