Meet Dr. Stephanie Gessner

The Inspiration Behind Her Chiropractic Career

Dr. Stephanie collageDr. Stephanie Gessner is a North Carolina newbie! She was raised in Batavia, a small suburb just outside of Chicago, Illinois. She grew up in large, close knit family. She is the youngest of 5, with three sisters and one brother. When she graduated high school, she decided she’d had enough of Midwest winters and moved to Texas, where her older siblings had already migrated. There she attended Texas A&M University, earning her Bachelors in Biomedical Sciences. She had always had a love for the sciences, but had originally planned on becoming a Veterinarian. Although she changed her mind about being a vet, it was her love for animals that consequently led her to chiropractic.

Dr. Gessner started riding horses when she was 10 years old, and when she attended A&M she joined the polo club. At the age of 20, after quite a few falls and some whiplash injuries, frequent headaches became an issue. A friend mentioned she should visit a chiropractor. Although this was a completely foreign idea, she decided to give it a go. As you can imagine, it not only worked, but inspired her to become a chiropractor herself! She enrolled at Parker Chiropractic University in Dallas, Texas.

Specializing in Prenatal and Pediatric Chiropractic

During Chiropractic school Dr. Gessner’s amazement with the human body led her to specialize in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic. What better example of how awesome the human body is than growing a brand new life?! So she joined the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and earned her Webster Technique certification. She even trained to be a doula and volunteered for a local maternity home while she was in school. After graduating in 2014, she practiced in Texas for three years where she focused on helping pregnant mommas and children.

Joining Davis Family Chiropractic

Dr. Gessner met Dr. Davis in 2016 when her husband was stationed at Ft. Bragg. She was looking to move to Raleigh and wanted to connect with other chiropractors who were prenatal, pediatric, and family focused. After meeting, they knew they’d make a great team, but Dr. Gessner ended up staying in Texas due to her husband retiring from the army. The doctors kept in touch, and in February 2018 Dr. Gessner and her husband decided to make the move back to Raleigh from Houston to join Davis Family Chiropractic!

Outside the Office

In her free time, Dr. Gessner loves to travel and spend time outdoors with her husband and her two fur babies, named Lucho and Thor. Since moving here they have loved exploring the east coast and all that Raleigh has to offer!!
