Dr. Witter-Davis became the interim sprints and hurdler coach at the University of Tennessee, which allowed her to coordinate workouts, demonstrate proper lifting techniques, circuit/weight training programs incorporating strength and agility, designed to maximize each athlete’s potential.
The realm of athletics and fitness opened the door to chiropractic medicine. Dr. Witter-Davis graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences Cum Laude and was the recipient of the President’s Award. She furthered her knowledge by becoming a Diplomate American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physician (DACBSP®), a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS®), an Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation Practitioner and a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner. This has allowed her to merge her knowledge of human biomechanics and chiropractic care to work closely with many elite athletes, weekend warriors and the general public.
After graduating from Spelman College, Dr. Heckard-Dunn chose to attend Bastyr University to continue developing her knowledge of integrated medical care. As a student clinician, she discovered her passion for lifestyle medicine and treating chronic disease. She participated in specialty shifts to gain an advanced understanding of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic pain management, and community medicine models. Ultimately, she received her Doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine and moved to Colorado to begin practicing.
Pairing her knowledge of conventional medicine with naturopathic modalities, Dr. Heckard-Dunn strives to support patients in achieving optimal health by correcting imbalances in body, mind, and spirit. She believes in treating the cause of health issues, instead of merely correcting symptoms, and takes a holistic approach that emphasizes patient education and empowerment.
