While working as an intern in the Parker University public clinic, Dr. Ellis reached out to many Chiropractors in the Dallas area, as well as Phoenix, San Diego, Denver, even Amsterdam and Paris to research different practices and adjusting styles. In the process of doing so, she was able to secure an internship position with Koala Chiropractic in Dallas that turned into a position after graduation. It was here she dove head-in into sports chiropractic and soft tissue injuries almost a year before she even graduated.
After a small break to have her first child, Dr. Ellis worked full-time at busy chiropractic practice in the Dallas area. It was here she honed her adjusting skills, adjusting thousands of patients, as well as re-connecting with a school friend, Dr. Frank Cox. Wanting a practice that was more personal and hands-on, they eventually left and created Meadows Chiropractic at the end of 2009.
Dr. Ellis is married to another classmate, Dr. Billy Kuykendall DC, whom she met in Gross Anatomy lab. He was a lab aide and helped her wash out a cadaver's heart. Dr.s Ellis and Kuykendall live in North Dallas, TX and have 3 kids, Hudson, Molly, and Mason.

Dr. Katie Langdon was born in Wisconsin and moved to Rockwall, TX when she was in second grade. Growing up she threw herself into gymnastics and competition cheer leading. She then paired this with equestrian and swimming.
Dr. Langdon found that the physical demands of all these activities were taking its toll on her body. Her low back pain was keeping her awake at night, but she refused to give up sports. When she went to see her primary care physician, they recommended stretching which provided no relief. She then looked into other avenues and found chiropractic which provided her a healthy, proactive solution to the physical demands of the activities she enjoyed.
Dr. Langdon graduated from Texas A&M University in 3.5 years with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Science. She received her Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker University in 2018. In her time at Parker she became passionate about serving athletes, people using their bodies in a unique way, and families. Dr. Langdon completed her internship at the Dallas VA Hospital where she developed a new passion for serving veterans and helping them live a healthier lifestyle.
Dr. Langdon is also a certified in animal musculoskeletal manipulation and is overjoyed to be able to serve both humans and animals.
Dr. Langdon still enjoys staying active. She practices yoga frequently and can usually be found working on her handstands surrounded by her three dogs. She also enjoys caring for her horse and riding when she finds the free time. Dr. Langdon continues to seek opportunities to grow in her education and better help those within her community.
