Dr. Kelly Fredricks, DC, CACCP
"MEET OUR STAFF! 👋 Dr. Kelly Fredricks is the owner of Family First Wellness Center in Winter Park, Fl. She earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2014, from Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida. She loves treating patients of all ages but her true passion lies with pediatric, pregnancy, and full family wellness care. Being a parent herself, she understands the challenges of raising a healthy child in today’s environment.
Dr Fredricks has completed over 200 hours of post-graduate education which focuses on pediatrics and maternity through The Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice and has acquired her CACCP pediatric certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). The rigorous, 200-hour curriculum offers techniques and protocols of care for children and pregnant women. The 15-module course covers levels of training and expertise additional to what is offered in chiropractic colleges. Dr. Fredricks is a Webster-certified doctor through the ICPA. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment for all people but most specifically pregnant mothers. The Webster technique is a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function for pregnant mothers with the goal of achieving optimal fetal positioning and a reduction in birthing difficulty.
In 2023 Dr. Fredricks successfully completed 80 hours of postdoctoral training sponsored by Life University Department of Postgraduate Education and The Pediatric Experience. This grants her Certificate of Proficiency in Pediatric and Family Chiropractic and assures our community that the specialized care received at Family First Wellness Center is truly world-class and encompasses the whole family.
Dr. Fredricks’ primary method of adjusting is the Koren Specific Technique (KST). Using KST, Dr. Fredricks is able to provide a gentle correction, which does not include popping or cracking. This less traditional adjusting technique which releases the body's energy to allow healing is gentle enough for all members of your family, including infants and the elderly. Along with KST, she is proficient in Activator Methods, Thompson technique, and also performs a soft tissue technique called Graston which is very beneficial for sports and extremity injuries.
Kelly has been with her husband Ben for over 20 years and they have a beautiful 8-year-old daughter named Stella. When Kelly and Ben aren’t busy running several businesses they enjoy traveling, going to concerts, and golfing as a family."
Dr. Jeffrey S. Haskel, DC, PhD
"Dr. Jeffrey S. Haskel has practiced Toxicology, Nutritional and Energetic Medicine, along with Functional Neurology Medicine since 1997. He has a Ph.D. in Holistic Nutrition. At the age of 29 he suffered with a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome. Barely able to make it out of bed in the morning, he struggled through the day just trying to function. Heeding his mother's advice, he went to see a Holistic Physician named Dr. Gene Putnam. Using many of the same nutritional, neurological and detoxification strategies that Dr. Haskel uses today, Dr. Putnam guided Dr. Haskel's body to heal itself. Over the course of a year of treatment, his energy and focus returned! Now, over 20 years have passed and he has maintained a high level of energy and focus. The chronic fatigue became chronic energy!
It was after treating with Dr. Putnam that Dr. Haskel decided to become a Holistic Physician. He attended Life College for his chiropractic degree and went on to Clayton College to obtain a postgraduate degree in Holistic Nutrition. Dr. Haskel believes that God has put an awesome intelligence in the human body, and with gentle guidance, the body can heal itself. Mission Dr. Haskel's first mission is to restore hope.
All too often, people have lost their sense of hope from having endured numerous experiences with high medical costs, pharmaceutical side–effects, ""quick–in–and–out–the–door"" treatments, doctors not listening to them, and more, just to end up feeling the same or worse. Looking for the underlying CAUSE(s) vs. just covering up symptoms allows Dr. Haskel to truly begin the healing process.
A wide range of health challenges have shown to respond favorably to Dr. Haskel's Toxicological, Metabolic and Neurological treatment approaches. These conditions include, but are not limited to: Autism; ADHD/Dyslexia/Learning disabilities; Allergies; Migraines; Hot Flashes; PMS; Fibromyalgia; Depression/Anxiety; Fatigue; Vertigo/Dizziness/Balance issues; Irregular Menstrual Periods; Infertility; Insomnia; Eczema; Chronic Fatigue; Thyroid Issues; Peripheral Neuropathy...and more."
Dr. Alexandra Antoine, DC
Hi, I’m Dr. Alexandra Antoine. I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio before moving to Lexington, Kentucky to attend undergrad at Transylvania University.
There, I followed the pre-med course schedule until my senior year. I was being interviewed by the pre-medical committee for a letter of recommendation when I was asked “Why do you want to go to medical school”. I was unable to give a genuine answer and it was obvious that I needed to change something. A few weeks later my chiropractor invited me to Palmer College during homecoming week. I knew then that this was the path I was supposed to take, and I have never looked back. After earning my bachelor's degree in biology in 2020, I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida and graduated in 2023 with my certification in the Webster technique.
My affinity for working with children and moms sparked during my summers spent as a lifeguard, swim coach, and water ballet instructor. Their pure joy, boundless creativity, open-mindedness and capacity to love others is what inspires me each and every day. While pursuing my education at Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida, I had the privilege to be able to continue working closely with pediatric and prenatal populations where I truly found my vocation. I feel fortunate to be able to call chiropractic my career.
In my free time I enjoy spending time outside at the beach, floating in the springs, hiking and playing pickle ball. In 2022 I participated in my first sprint triathlon. While I can’t say running is a passion of mine just yet, I am working towards the goal of running a half marathon in the near future!
“I grew up going to the chiropractor with my mom for anything she could think of but drifted away from chiropractic as a young adult. When I was pregnant in 2016, I came running back to chiropractic, and I will never go without it again!
In 2016, I read a Spinning Babies article about the sacrotuberous ligament that sent me searching for a Webster Certified chiropractor. That’s when I was so fortunate to find Dr. Kelly Fredricks. Dr. Kelly helped immensely during my pregnancy, relieving back spasms and ensuring my body was aligned and open, to allow my breech baby to do what she was designed to do: turn head-down. After delivery, my daughter, Kairi, was adjusted for the first time at 3 days old.
Through regular chiropractic care, Dr. Kelly could resolve my daughter’s torticollis and keep her out of a helmet. I’ve been a big fan of Dr. Kelly’s for years, sending everyone I know (and strangers I meet at the store!) to see her. So, it only made sense for me to join the staff in 2022. I love being on a team who is a force for good! It is a joy to help our patients, who are like extended family, on their wellness journey!”
Christy graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Marketing. She lives in Oviedo with her husband, Mike, and daughter, Kairi. They enjoy Tampa Bay Lightning hockey, improv comedy, vacations in the mountains, hiking, kayaking, or skiing/snowboarding/tubing."
Patient Success Coordinator
“Hi! I’m Toni! In 2010 I was in two car accidents within a six-month period, the kind that are “minor” but cause lots of pain that keep us from doing all the things we love. I was treated by several manually-adjusting chiropractors over the years, and while my symptoms would usually improve after an adjustment, I was never fully restored to my pre-accident condition. When a third accident happened in 2018 I went to see Dr Kelly who I knew through business networking. Her style was so gentle, at first I wondered if anything was happening at all! I quickly realized that my adjustments were actually lasting longer and that not only was I experiencing pain relief, I felt an overall improvement in well-being. I started to think better, sleep better, and get through life better. I was surprised, grateful, and I was hooked!
I joined Dr. Kelly’s team in 2021 and absolutely love being at the front desk, where I welcome our patients and take care of scheduling and other details that support their healing and wellness. When people ask what I like about my role, two things come immediately to mind. First, it’s the people, and especially the babies! Who doesn’t like to see new life and watch children grow and thrive? Second, I get to see individuals and even whole families with a wide range of conditions get better and stay well. And that is a profoundly wonderful thing!”
Toni holds a BA from FSU and a MA in Elementary Education from UCF. She has decades of experience in service to clients in the financial industry, public education, and more. She and her husband Rich live in Orlando where they lovingly cultivate their “urban wildlife refuge” and enjoy birdwatching, local theater, volunteering, and being lifelong learners.
"My name is Ashely and I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. My husband, Steven and I decided to move to Florida in July of 2022. We said goodbye to the busy New York life to live a more peaceful life in the South. I’ve spent almost 10 years of my life working in the education field alongside the Principal of a transfer high school, the same high school I attended that changed my life. My job helping students achieve their goals and finally graduating after being labeled a statistic in other schools was so rewarding and fulfilling.
In May 2022 my son, Ocean, was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two. Currently nonverbal, he has had developmental delays since he was about four months old. I knew I had to slow down and dedicate my life to helping my son overcome his obstacles. I am happy to say that he is currently getting the help he needs with therapies, an IEP, and now chiropractic adjustments twice weekly.
Although he’s only been doing chiropractic care for a few months we have already noticed huge improvements! Becoming a chiropractic assistant with FFWC has changed my life in ways I couldn’t imagine. Not only do I feel rewarded, appreciated, and helpful but I also feel at peace. Being able to be a part of someone’s wellness journey and see them reach their full potential is an incredible feeling."
