Meet the team of chiropractic doctors and professionals at our clinic.

Meet the Doctors

Drs. Brian and Merissa are passionate about living the MaxLiving lifestyle, and enjoy sharing it with their patients. They believe you already have everything within you to allow healing, and will work alongside you to remove interferences in your life (and spine!) to allow 100% expression of YOU!

Dr. Brian Beard

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Merissa Beard

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Merissa grew up in Victoria, BC, Canada where she obtained her BSc. Kinesiology, with Honours, from the University of Victoria. She learned about the power of chiropractic after having her horse adjusted by an equine chiropractor, leading her to seek care for her own health as well. Dr. Merissa attended Parker University where she obtained her Doctorate of Chiropractic (and her husband, Dr. Brian!) in 2014.

Dr. Merissa is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is certified in the Webster Technique for prenatal care. In 2018, she launched BIRTHFIT Conway, AR as a Regional Director, placing Beard Family Chiropractic at the epicenter of care in the Motherhood Transition. Her heart is for serving women and their children to create empowered, healthy families!

In addition to living the chiropractic lifestyle, Dr. Merissa is passionate about fitness! She is a CrossFit L1 trainer and has been a member of CrossFit Conway for 4 years. Her additional certification in Applied Kinesiology through the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK) is a favorite among athletes she serves, allowing improved neuromuscular performance and biomechanics.

Our Staff

Our staff members work with our doctors every day to provide our patients with a professional and friendly experience.

Justin Chambliss

Office Manager

Justin is a proud native of Arkansas. He has always known his passion was to help others, but after spending five years in the Justin joined the team in 2015 after being in the optometry field and realizing that he wanted to help people in a bigger way. God led him to the best job posting he could have imagined at Beard Family Chiropractic! After meeting the Beards, Justin realized this was where he needed to be in order to accomplish his purpose.

Justin loves watching MaxLiving change so many lives, and also how it continues to change his own life. In the office, Justin handles the day to day operations including scheduling and patient care management. He's the first face you'll see when you walk in and he'll probably be the voice on the phone reminding you of your appointment! When he's not at BFC, Justin enjoys spending time with his wife, Katie, and son, Braxton. His favorite activities are playing basketball, swimming, running, or attending any sporting event for the Razorbacks (much to Dr. Brian's dismay).

5 Essentials Chiropractic Assistant

Jackie was born and raised here in Central Arkansas. She has always had a passion for helping others and a desire to see lives changed. She joined the Beard Family Chiropractic team in July 2017 and has found her life passion - Chiropractic!

While you are in the office, Jackie will teach you how to maximize your life according to all 5 Essentials. She will also help you with your warm-up exercises, show you how to use your homecare equipment, and keep you informed about upcoming office events.

Outside of the office, she enjoys spending her time with her husband, Justin, and their two French Bulldogs, Gizmo and Annabelle. She loves doing anything active- especially outdoors, such as Crossfit, Mountain Biking, and Hiking.

Paige Revis

5 Essentials Chiropractic Assistant

Paige Revis was born and raised in Arkansas. She loves living in a vibrant and healthy community like Conway. Paige has been in the fitness and wellness industry for over 20 years! She began at BFC as a patient when it first opened in 2014. Later that year, she became part of the team and has been maximizing lives ever since!

She will show you how to use all the homecare equipment you receive and remind you to invite all your friends and family members to every event we offer. Paige loves the 5 Essentials and wants to share her passion with everyone. When she’s not running around Beard Family Chiropractic, you can find her teaching Jazzercise or traveling with her husband, David.

Carolyn Wells

Back Office Manager

Carolyn was born in Ohio and loves Ohio State football. She bleeds scarlet and gray! If you want to talk college football with a woman who knows her stuff it's Carolyn. She is just as passionate about chiropractic! Carolyn joined the office staff in the fall of 2014. She handles the accounting, reporting, and all back office details. You will see Carolyn at many of our events manning the blender and food tables!

Carolyn loves the outdoors. She likes to hike, camp, and be a part of all the beauty nature has to offer. She is married to Thad and has a beautiful adult daughter, Candace.


Patient Support

Ribbon is our resident Patient Support Dog. You may have seen her basking in a patch of sunlight, or letting the kids pet her while their families are being adjusted. Ribbon is affectionately called "The Booj" because, as most of you know, she likes to do things on her own terms. One may consider her a bit snobbish because she can be slow to warm up to new people (we believe she has been abused in the past). Once she gets to know you, she'll be your friend for life! She will accept offerings of organic treats and belly scratches.
