I was born in upstate N.Y. but was relocated to Newnan, GA as a teenager because of my dad’s job. I attended East Coweta High School and graduated in 1999. From there, I attended GA College and State University and graduated in 2003 with a B.S. degree in chemistry. I then went on to Graduate School at Clemson University with the intent of pursuing a PhD in medicinal chemistry. While in graduate school I married my college sweetheart, Brook.
I always knew growing up that I wanted a job where I’d be able to make a difference in people’s lives, so in going to grad school for medicinal chemistry I thought I was on the right track to do so.
But while I was there, I found out that as a nation, we have a really backward view of health and where health truly comes from. In my fourth year of school, I found out I was pregnant and soon realized that I was no longer going to be able to work in a chemical lab. This was such a blessing in disguise because it gave me the opportunity to discover the truth about health; that it only comes from within, not from putting a bunch of chemicals in our bodies. I immediately applied to Life University and started the Doctor of Chiropractic program when my son was seven weeks old. I graduated from Life University in December of 2011.
I opened Covington Family Chiropractic in October 2013 and have grown it to be one of the largest pediatric and prenatal chiropractic offices in the State of Georgia and in the Southeast! We are an award-winning office and have been voted best chiropractor in Newton and Rockdale County in 2016 and 2018 and was nominated for Small Business of the Year in 2017. I am an avid crossfitter and hope to compete in the Crossfit Games Masters Division in 2020 and I am enjoying an amazing life with my husband Brook (married now for 14 years) and my two children; Landon, 11 and Logan 9.
Dr. Grace Gilbreath was born into a military family which consisted of moving around a lot but considers Alabama home. She received her undergraduate degree from Southeastern Louisiana University with a BS in Exercise Science. She then went on to receive her Master's degree from Southeastern Louisiana University with a MA in Health Promotion and Exercise Physiology. Her initial career track was to either be a physical therapist or work in cardiac rehabilitation because of her extensive background as a competitive athlete. At the very end of her Master's degree, she started having back and neck pain from studying long hours for board exams. She went to a local Chiropractor and knew instantly that this was the profession she wanted to be in and change lives. She has always loved the concept of healing the body through holistic and natural ways. Little did she know that chiropractic lines up ideally with this philosophy!
After her Masters graduation, she picked up and moved to Marietta, Georgia to attend chiropractic school at Life University. For the last six months of her internship, she interned at Covington Family Chiropractic. It was here that she had the pleasure of meeting many different patients. She cared for families, athletes, the elderly, special needs children, infants, school age children, and pregnant mothers, just to name a few. These patients helped Dr. Grace gain experience in many different techniques of Chiropractic adjusting. Her main focus is using Diversified Spinal Technique along with Torque Release Technique. Her passion strives in being a wellness Chiropractor and serving the community of Covington, GA.
