Dr. Jenna Brennan grew up on the East Coast of Florida. She graduated from the University of Florida, with a bachelor’s degree in Biology- Preprofessional Studies. After this, she went on to obtain her Doctor of Chiropractic Degree, graduating with Magna Cum Laude, from National University of Health Sciences in December of 2018. Dr. Jenna is a strong advocate for an integrative approach to treatment and the importance of improving the function of the musculoskeletal system to optimize patient health. She utilizes an evidenced based approach developed from her exposure in an emergency room setting, postgraduate education, along with volunteering at multiple sporting events which grew her passion for physical medicine. She combines the use of manipulation, functional soft tissue and rehabilitation techniques, along with athletic taping strategies. Personally, Dr. Jenna likes to remain as active as she can, by running, indoor cycling, yoga, weightlifting and other outdoor activities. She participated as a competitive athlete for numerous years in powerlifting and swimming which led her to understanding the sports world, injuries endured, and the treatments needed that she found within the Chiropractic profession. She’s a foodie and loves coffee so you may see her around town.

Hunter Baron is our key business relations guy. Having played football as a wide receiver for St. Thomas High School, his interest in sports has always been a part of his daily routine. Hunter became enthused with healthcare in the athletic world during his early teens as his dad would bring him (and his younger bro, Heath) to the Miami Dolphins and Miami Marlins training rooms to treat the athletes, coaches and support staff. Yet, all it took was one influential teacher to shift his awareness towards a passion for the business end of healthcare. Hunter’s communication skills and congenial behavior have paved the way for his ability to comfort patients, and help manage them though their healing and orientation towards better health.
My interest in sports started when I was young as I grew up watching football with my dad. My background also included dancing professionally for many years and competing in powerlifting while attending the University of Wisconsin at Madison. After graduating with a degree in Exercise Physiology I took my skill set and decided to get kicked out of some of the finest office buildings in the City of Chicago wearing high heels rather than gym shoes as an outside sales rep. (We were taught to ignore the “no Solicitation signs”) When I realized high heels and snow don’t work well together I went back to school to get my doctorate in Chiropractic and then earned a diplomate in Internal Medicine and then one in Nutrition and a Fellowship in Medical Acupuncture. Private practice was the way to go and after 18 years I decided to also team up with NeuroSport Elite to treat Pee wee and pro athletes and those of us that fall in-between. The best athlete I work with no matter the level is the one that wants to improve their performance, their health and just their day to day energy level and desire and to improve.
I also run around the country….yes I am still wearing the heels…educating on such topics as Post Concussion Nutrition, Neuroadrenal dysfunction, Common Causes for Fatigue and How to Treat Burnout Naturally and Safely Without Performance Enhancing Drugs, Gut dysfunction and a variety of other fun things to help you be at your best.My priorities are my three kids who double as athletes playing football, baseball, wrestling, basketball and Tae Kwon Do ( my daughter is working on her third degree black belt, she is my personal body guard). We eat gluten and dairy free and they even take their vitamin D and probiotics. We are all artists in our own ways as well so some of our free time goes to being creative.
Locally I serve on our local community football board, am the team Chiropractor for Dreamz Elite competitive cheer and serve on our school district’s Concussion Oversight Committee. I currently reside in Chicago and travel down to South Florida each month bringing me to family and to clients who are looking to improve their game and their health! Can’t wait to see you when I am at NeuroSport Elite.
