Dr. Tennille was in a terrible car accident. It was so severe that it left her in a state where she was told that life as she knew it was over. Her traumas included concussion, retinal detachment, lacerations, medial meniscus tear, medial collateral ligament tear, and three dislocations. She also had two herniated discs and the pain was so great that she couldn't sit for longer than five minutes at a time. It was through treatments including chiropractic and exercise that helped her overcome this difficult time in her life. It allowed her to live a pain-free, fully functional life that every person deserves to live. It also inspired her to become a chiropractor and help others the way chiropractic helped her.
Dr. Tennille decided to further her education by attending Life University in Marietta, Georgia where she obtained a Doctor of Chiropractic and a MS in Sports Health Science. For her MS, her major focus was injury prevention for athletes.
Besides her thirst for knowledge, it is no surprise that Dr. Tennille also has a passion for athletics. She has played many sports including basketball and running track. Dr. Tennille's true passion is martial arts. She holds many black belts in various techniques including a Kukkiwon in Taekwondo.

It was because of Dr. Tennille's experience as an athlete that she pursued education in healthcare. She has had multiple concussions. She has had sprains and strains. She has had broken bones.
