Get to know your Doctor
Dr. Erika grew up in Newark, Ohio where she participated in many sporting events throughout high school and college including: volleyball, track, weight lifting and figure competitions. During her free time, you can find Erika playing competitive volleyball, doing any outdoor activity, and hanging with friends and family.
After high school she pursued a Physical Therapy degree, Holistic Nutrition and Wellness degree and a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic. While receiving her doctorate degree, she also studied through The Wellness Way. Dr. Erika first worked in many settings with a career in physical therapy including: acute and rehab floors in the local hospital, outpatient, pediatrics and geriatric skilled nursing facilities. Although her love for physical therapy still persists, Dr. Erika started to research the chiropractic profession.
Her road to Chiropractic was heavily influenced by her own health journey that significantly improved through receiving chiropractic care. Dr. Erika spent years researching and looking for answers, believing that a pill for symptomology wasn’t the answer! After realizing the human body doesn’t make mistakes and that all systems work together, Dr. Erika became persistent on making sure others didn’t have to go years without answers to their health concerns. For that reason, Dr. Erika then pursued chiropractic as a career and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa.
While in doctorate school, she trained for 3.5 years under a world recognized spine and extremity expert addressing foot, knee, hip, wrist, elbow, arm and TMJ. She also spent time studying through the Institute of Functional medicine and many more awesome years learning from the Wellness Way practitioners as a student and then joined the team as a doctor.
Dr. Erika is extremely passionate in finding the root cause and creating a roadmap to unlocking the body’s full potential of healing. The healing journey can begin for anyone at any age. Dr. Erika is determined to bring this new perspective of health to the Newark, Granville and surrounding areas of Ohio.
DR. CAROLINE CONNOLLY D.C.
Dr. Caroline grew up in Newfane, New York where she participated in sports and the arts, including cross-country, tennis, volleyball, softball, swimming, musicals, chorus, and band. During her free time, she enjoys board/card games with family and friends, arts & crafts, travelling, hiking, reading, volunteering, playing volleyball, singing karaoke, and watching musicals. Dr. Caroline attended Elmira College where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and ran NCAA DIII cross-country.
Dr. Caroline graduated with Magna Cum Laude with her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa. While working on her doctorate, she trained for over 2 years with a world-renowned extremity expert, learning on how to address the foot, ankle, knee, hip, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, and TMJ. She spent time in The Wellness Way student club and then interned at The Wellness Way - Green Bay during her final trimester of doctorate school.
Dr. Caroline is spirited about finding the source of patients' health problems and helping people learn about how they can heal on their own health journeys. She loves The Wellness Way for the simplicity and hope that it brings to patients. Dr. Caroline is excited to be able to guide people on their journeys to new health in the Granville & Newark areas, as well as other areas of Ohio.
DR. DANAE FIELDS D.C.
Dr. Danae is a small town girl from Cambridge, Ohio, who grew up diving head first into a whirlwind of activities. From nailing gymnastics routines to smashing softballs, dribbling soccer balls to sinking hoops, sprinting on tracks to spiking volleyballs, she did it all! But that wasn't enough for her versatile spirit-she also tickled the ivories on the piano and let loose on the saxaphone. And if that wasn't adventerous enough already, she even hopped on horses for barrel racing and trail riding. When she's not busy conquering the world, you'll find Dr. Danae sweating it out in a competetive game of sports, soaking up the sun outdoors, or sharing treasured moments with her cat, Shady.
After High school, Dr. Danae's journey led her to Cedarville University, where she majored in exercise science and became a force to be reckoned with on the NCAAD II softball field. Her quest for knowledge then took her to Logan University in Saint Louis, Missouri, where she earned her Doctorate in Chiropractic. But her academic pursuits weren't confined to the classroom-she was an active member of The Wellness Way student club and honed her skills while interning for 2 different Wellness Way offices.
Dr. Danae's Fascination with chiropractic care ignited during her freshman year of high school when a volleyball season brought her face-to-face with back pain. She went to a chiropractor who revealed an undetected pars fracture that healed incorrectly. While the fracture remains a part of her, her chiropractor was able to get her back to the sports she cherished.
Dr. Danae is so grateful for that chiropractor and wants to be the same light for others.
Dr. Danae is on a mission to empower parents with the unwavering confidence needed to raise strong and healthy children. In a world where health seems to be slipping through our fingers, she proudly defies the norm, guiding prospective parents, moms-to-be, and parents at every stage in making the wisest, healthiest choices for their family.
But that's not all- Dr. Danae is on the relentless quest to help individuals reclaim the life they want to live. Whether it's reclaiming their vitality, chasing after little ones, getting back into sports after injuries or time off, or pursuing any other passion, Dr. Danae stands ready to offer a helping hand.
