A unique experience she holds dear and will never forget.
Collegiate and more
Dr. J earned her doctor of chiropractic degree from Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) in Pasadena, Texas, Spring 2015. She graduated cum laude as the salutatorian of her class, member of the Omega Psi Honor Society, and student ambassador. While at TCC, she became passionate about being in-tune and involved with the advancement of chiropractic nationwide. She served as TCC’s chapter president of the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA). Her involvement with SACA, gave her a unique platform to lobby various chiropractic bills to US congressmen each year on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, alongside other chiropractic students and Doctors of Chiropractic across the US.

Furthermore, she engaged in clinical rotations at the Bridge Over Troubled Waters, bringing chiropractic care to individuals seeking shelter from domestic and sexual violence, Rice University, working closely with the athletic department towards rehabilitating the athletes to their peak performance, and at the University of Houston-Clear Lake Health Center.

She currently holds special certificate training in the Webster Technique for pregnancy care, Activator technique, and Rocktape Fascial Movement Taping, Level 1.
The journey to Chiropractic
Many say that “You don’t choose chiropractic, chiropractic chooses you.” In her case, Dr. J believes this to be true. Dr. J discovered her passion for chiropractic near the end of her journey as a pre-med student at The University of Texas.
All about the kids
Kids have always been her passion, for as a pre-med student, Dr. J was solely interested in pursuing a medical doctor education to become a pediatric reconstructive plastic surgeon. In her senior year at UT, she received a unique opportunity to spend a month of weekly observation of both orthopedic and reconstructive plastic surgeries at University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin, Texas. Although her respect and gratitude grew immensely for the doctors in these professions, she became compelled with the realization that the hospital setting was just not at all for her. A role in healthcare and helping others remained a constant desire of hers, but her only question became, “Where do I belong?”
It all started with a friend
Despite having known that chiropractic care is optimal for the treatment of neck and back pain, Dr. J credits her true introduction to chiropractic to a close friend who had just begun his chiropractic school education. He spoke candidly to her about the true philosophy of chiropractic, opening her eyes to a clearer understanding of the fact that the nervous system controls our ENTIRE being and is the root source of life for every cell, muscle, and organ in our body. He explained that via the relationship the spine has with the spinal cord, chiropractic is more concerned with clearing nervous system interference, providing relief for more than just neck pain and back pain, but overall health.
A perfect fit with her beliefs about health
Dr. J did her research to learn more about this vast world of healing that she was never exposed to as a pre-med student. She had no idea until this moment that the holistic outlook towards healing that chiropractic is based on mirrored everything about her health choices at the time … alternatives first, medication second. She was further shocked and pleasantly surprised upon learning that a specialty in pediatric and pregnancy care could be attained as a chiropractor. With this realization, Dr. J knew that chiropractic was her perfect fit and she hasn’t looked back since!
She’s usually on the run
Dr. J enjoys holding true to a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and staying active as an avid long-distance runner. When she’s not in the office, you can spot her on the running along the roads of Austin with her running club or Lady Bird Lake, spending time with friends and family, traveling, or once a year on the field in Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium marching with the Longhorn Alumni Band.

Meet Shelbi King, Chiropractic Assistant
A passion for wellness
Growing up in a medical family I have always had a passion for health and wellness. I was a collegiate cheerleader at the University of North Texas where I studied education. Going through school I knew that becoming a teacher wasn’t my passion. I have always gravitated toward helping my community become more educated on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
I had an amazing opportunity to start a career as a chiropractic assistant/office manager for Dr. J at Empower Family Chiropractic. Since joining the team I have personally witnessed people having better movement, children and babies finding comfort, and people finally finding pain relief in chiropractic treatment.
Just for fun
In my spare time I enjoy going on adventures. I love to explore new places and to be outdoors. I enjoy running and doing CrossFit. I love to learn and experience different cultures and atmospheres to have a better understanding of this beautiful world that we live in. I find peace when I participate in community events and I find happiness when I’m surrounded by people that I love. I choose to constantly be in practice of being authentic, spiritual and compassionate.
I’m excited to be a part of the Empower Family and I look forward to working with patients in hopes to better each and everyone’s quality of life.
