Dr. Jamie Adams was born in upstate N.Y. but was relocated to Newnan, GA as a teenager. She graduated from East Coweta High School in 1999 and from there, attended GA College and State University, where she graduated with a B.S. degree in chemistry in 2003. She then went on to Graduate School at Clemson University with the intent of pursuing a PhD in medicinal chemistry. While in graduate school, she married her college sweetheart, Brook. They have been happily married for 15 years and have two beautiful children, Landon, 13 and Logan Olivia (Lola), 10.
Dr. Jamie always knew growing up that she wanted a job where she’d be able to make a difference in people’s lives, so in going to graduate school for medicinal chemistry she thought she was on the right track to do so. But while she was at Clemson, she discovered, that as a nation, we have a really backward view of health and she began researching where health and healing truly come from. In her fourth year of graduate school, she found out she was pregnant and soon realized that she would no longer to be able to work in a chemical lab. This was such a blessing in disguise because it gave her the opportunity to discover the truth about health; that it only comes from within, not from putting a bunch of chemicals in our bodies. She immediately applied to Life University and started the Doctor of Chiropractic program when her son was only seven weeks old. She graduated from Life University in December of 2011.
In October of 2013, she opened Covington Family Chiropractic, after spending a year as an associate doctor. Since 2013, she has grown Covington Family Chiropractic to be one of the largest pediatric and prenatal chiropractic offices in the State of Georgia and in the Southeast!
