Dr. McKenzie Bayless
Doctor of Chiropractic
Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner
Dr. McKenzie was born and raised in Shawnee, KS. She attended Kansas State (Go Cats!) where she majored in Life-Sciences, with an emphasis in Pre-Medicine. She always had a heart for nutrition and natural medicine, but was a little undecided on what she wanted to do in life. She shadowed and worked with different professions, but she kept coming back to Chiropractic.
She spent the next 3.5 years earning her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Cleveland University, where she graduated Summa Cum Lade.
She believes that preventative medicine is the best form of medicine, and strives to help people live healthier and more fulfilling lives. She is currently working towards her Diplomate from the American Board of Nutrition.
In her free time she loves to hangout on her mini-farm with her husband, Wyatt, and their Dachshunds, Willie and Hank.
