Brandi Rashidian-Clinic Director
Brandi grew up in the Midwest with chiropractic care as a part of her normal wellness regime, so it is no surprise that she ended up marrying one of the3 most skilled Chiropractic Physicians this area has ever seen. Brandi and Dr. Amir have been married for 14 years and have 3 active little boys. Brandi and Dr. Amir started Mid Atlantic Chiropractic Center together 13 years ago and have really loved becoming an integral part of the Frederick Community. When Brandi isn’t taking care of the boys or the Clinic, she really enjoys sharing her gift of hospitality. She is known for hosting dinners and parties for the Clinic staff, family, and friends even sometimes at a moment’s notice. She has also been found using her skills and talents in the area of event planning assisting non-profits such as Habitat For Humanity of Frederick County and also Grace Community Church where they attend regularly as a family. She truly has a passion for Chiropractic and loves hearing patient’s share stories of their success. When asked to give one piece of advice for individuals new to chiropractic care she said this, “Don’t let chiropractic care be your last resort. I have seen so many people suffer for far too long that could have been helped far sooner than they were otherwise. I have heard so many people over the years say, I wish I would have come sooner. One problem is that most of us are willing to spend a lot of money on the next big “quick fix” but the reality is that sometimes it takes time to achieve our health goals. Stop listening to the naysayers and just be willing to do something you have never done and maybe you will get the results you have never gotten! You deserve to be happy, healthy, and pain free”
Kadi Englehart - Clinical Coordinator
My name is Kadi Englehart and I joined the team in January 2015. I am the Clinical Coordinator for the office and a registered Chiropractic Assistant. I came from the nursing world where I was an LPN for 2.5 years. After graduating as Valedictorian of my class, I spent my time working in nursing homes where I watched the people I cared for get sicker and sicker. Since joining the team, it has been such a breath of fresh air to see my patients get better! I wake up every day excited to change the world through chiropractic. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Biobehavioral Health from Penn State University. I completed my Master’s degree in Public Health in September 2016 after maintaining President's List throughout the duration of the program, and I love how well chiropractic and public health align! (Align, like your spine, get it??) Getting chiropractic care is the best way to improve health and prevent disease and I love watching patients grow healthier and healthier with each adjustment. I love spending time with my husband, learning, coffee (you need a lot to get through grad school), and being outdoors. I am here to answer your questions and provide you with a welcoming experience every time you come to the office.
Kristen Willard - Front Desk Assistant
Kristen joined the team in March of 2017. Kristen received her Associates Degree in Medical Assisting through FCC where she graduated with honors. She is currently working towards becoming a Certified Chiropractic Assistant. Kristen enjoys seeing her patients' smiles and hearing their stories of how their care has improved their lives. She looks forward to continuing to see her patients improve their health and achieve their goals. Kristen is originally from California and moved to Maryland 10 years ago. Her favorite thing about living in Maryland is the changing seasons; she is one of those unique individuals who especially enjoy Maryland winters! She enjoys getting back to visit family and spending time with her husband.Prior to joining the team and receiving care, Kristen experienced severe pain and tingling all throughout her legs and feet, with occasional tingling throughout the entire body. The pain was so severe that it made the simplest things nearly impossible. On one occasion, she was trying to grocery shop and the pain became so overwhelming that she became nauseous and barley made it out of the store before she collapsed. She had to wear compression braces daily just to walk. After seeing medical doctor after medical doctor, and being told they don’t know what is wrong and "sometimes things just happen" and they don’t know why, she began to give up hope. After her first adjustment the tingling was gone. The pain is gone more days than not, but when she is having a bad day the pain intensity has still decreased by 85%. She no longer has to wear braces daily and has started getting back to the thing she enjoys, such as exercising and shopping. She is truly grateful for the life-changing effects chiropractic has had in her life, and loves helping others reach their goals as well.
Haley Dilley - Chiropractic Assistant
Haley started at Mid Atlantic Chiropractic in September of 2018. She’s been working in the chiropractic field since June 2016 as a Licensed Chiropractic Assistant. She realized her passion for Chiropractic, and natural healing, when she had a grand mal seizure in September 2016. After her seizure, she was unable to walk or move as she had prior to the seizure. She also had a very hard time getting up out of bed in the morning due to the muscle contractions that occured in her upper back and neck areas. For the first two weeks after her seizure, she was getting adjusted regularly while taking ibuprofen because of the pain. After that, she stopped taking the ibuprofen and then realized how big of an impact the adjustments were making.Through chiropractic, she was slowly restored and able to move and do all the things she had prior to her seizure. This experience gave her a deep appreciation for Chiropractic care and all it has to offer. Another passion of Haley’s is working out and being active. She does this by taking her dog, Lola, on walks, going hiking and lifting weights at the gym. She will continue to strive to stay healthy and well while helping others do the same!
