Dr. Christina has a passion for serving her community. She is committed to helping others better their health so that they can live their best life.

Dr. Anthony Pellegrino is a Monmouth County native whose heart for service began at an early age. While growing up in Shrewsbury, he served as an EMT on the First Aid Squad and an Eagle Scout. After becoming a chiropractic patient and learning how chiropractic helps the body function optimally, facilitating healing from the inside out, he was hooked. Under chiropractic care, Dr. Pellegrino experienced relief from years of gastrointestinal symptoms and dysfunction which no prescription medication had ever helped. Dr. Pellegrino questioned why he had never known about the amazing power of chiropractic and decided he needed to educate and serve his community so they too could function better and live healthier lives. Dr. Pellegrino received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, GA during which time he helped to build one of the largest chiropractic practices in the southeast. He also earned his “Advanced Proficient” certification in Torque Release Technique, published research on the effects of chiropractic and autism, and pursued his post-doctoral diplomat in Pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
Dr. Anthony Pellegrino is committed to always delivering the highest quality of neurologically-based chiropractic care possible while expanding the science and research base of chiropractic so that others may follow suit.
Dr. Ericka Montelione always knew that her passion was to serve others. Throughout her childhood she always participated in community church events, and found a passion for helping people. She battled over the decision of what she wanted to do for a profession for some time but after meeting her husband in undergraduate school she realized that chiropractic was a way to help people of all ages using her hands, and avoiding the usage of medication and surgery.
When she was a child she was very sick with allergies and asthma. Medication and injections were always the treatment administered for 12+ years, but health was never achieved. After beginning care in Chiropractic College the allergies and asthma melted away. For that case illness is a rarity. Because of her own experience with chiropractic and a passion for children she is in the process of receiving her ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) CACCP pediatric certification, a 180 hour course tied in with research and a final examination. She also recently attended a mission’s trip with Dr. Mike to the Dominican Republic through Chiromission to give chiropractic care to those less fortunate. This experience amped her passion for the greatness of chiropractic and the desire to serve people holistically and naturally even more!
Dr. Gabriel Long had the privilege to serve in multiple offices prior to opening Awaken Chiropractic. He served at CTC Chiropractic; the largest pediatric practice in the state of Texas and ADIO Chiropractic in Golden, CO which is regarded as the fastest growing practice in the history of chiropractic.

Dr. Grant and his wife Sam had the honor of serving alongside Dr.’s Jeremy and Amanda Hess at Discover Chiropractic in the state of Georgia for four years. Together they built the largest pediatric chiropractic office in the southeast United States. During his time in Georgia Dr. Lisetor served various homeless ministries by not only helping to lead food and clothing drives, but also providing complementary chiropractic care to the homeless: offering hundreds of people an opportunity to achieve greater health and freedom from drugs.
Dr. Lisetor received his doctorate from Life University, the largest and most advanced chiropractic school in the world. Dr. Lisetor is an expert of upper cervical, Thompson, and Gonstead adjusting techniques. These techniques are some of the oldest in the chiropractic profession, which through years of research have become the most effective and reproducible techniques. They are all gentle, low force, high speed techniques. He also has extensive training in adjusting children and pregnant women. His dedication and expertise allow him to deliver the highest quality of care.
Dr. Grant suffered a major wrestling injury in high school. He had gone to a number of doctors and as a last resort went to a chiropractor. After a few adjustments he was remarkably able to return to the mats. He continued care through the rest of the season and noticed improvements in his sleep habits and energy levels. He was also named team captain that season due to marked improvement in athleticism. It was this experience that fueled the fire in him to become a chiropractor and open Greater Life Chiropractic in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Dr. Kyle grew up in Thief River Falls, MN. From a young age, he deeply desired to serve and help others, which led him to the University of North Dakota where he pursued a degree as a Registered Nurse. Dr. Kyle started his nursing career at Sanford Health in Fargo, ND. His first nursing position was in the operating room. He later served in the medical Intensive Care Unit (ICU), in preparation for his future goal of being a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).
While working as a nurse, Dr. Kyle’s wife (Rachel) experienced life-changing healing from chiropractic care. Dr. Kyle began to understand that TRUE health comes from within the body, not from over-the-counter medications or prescription drugs, which only put a band-aid on health concerns. The significance of Rachel’s story triggered a call to action by Dr. Kyle. He made it his new life’s mission to pursue chiropractic care, so that he could share this same life-changing story with thousands of individuals and families in his own community.
Dr. Kyle loves to serve his community with excellence. He strives to deliver great customer experiences at all times. He enjoys mentoring chiropractic students as well, spending several hours per month training, speaking, and leading student chiropractors, to help create critical mass in the chiropractic profession through the next generation of chiropractors.

Dr. Paige grew up in the small Eastern Iowa town of Anamosa. She went on to receive her undergraduate degree in Athletic Training and Biology from the University of Northern Iowa. During her high school and college years, she was introduced to chiropractic and the profound impact it had on her health and the health of others. She always knew she wanted to pursue a career that allowed her to serve and empower others and knew a career as a chiropractor would do just that!
She went on to pursue a Doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While in chiropractic school she learned about the body’s incredible ability to self-heal, and the impact the nervous system plays on the functioning ability of the body. While at Palmer, Dr. Paige pursued additional courses outside of required curriculum through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This equips her to serve children at the highest level with the most effective techniques. She also earned her Webster Certification, which is an advanced certification that instructs doctors how to specifically care for prenatal and postpartum mothers.
Dr. Jacob Duvall grew up in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, where his entire family is from. At a young age he lost his father to an illness and his desire for the healthcare profession began. He was a very competitive basketball player throughout high school and went on to play basketball at Oklahoma Baptist University, where he won a National Championship as a freshman and met his wife KyLeigh. Due to his mother being in poor health, Dr. Jacob decided to move back home to Tahlequah to be closer to her where he continued his education at Northeastern State University. He graduated from NSU with a degree in Cellular Biology and a minor in Chemistry.
During undergrad, Dr. Jacob’s wife suffered from severe headaches and digestive issues. After getting under principled chiropractic care, her headaches began to go away, as did her digestive issues. Due to Dr. Jacob’s fascination with the human body and the strong desire to help others find true health, he felt like Chiropractic was the perfect fit for him after seeing the results his wife received. He went on to get his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker University in Dallas, Texas.
While in Chiropractic school, Dr. Jacob worked to earn extra certifications. He is currently certified in Webster technique through the ICPA, which is a special certification to help treat pregnant women. He has always been passionate about children, so he wanted to make sure he got extra certifications in prenatal and pediatric care.
