Meet the Staff
Shari Allen, B.S.
You could say that I have been with Dr. Allen since he started in practice 26 years ago as I am his wife as well as the practice manager. My job is to keep the business end of our office running smoothly. I oversee our staff and handle patient billing and accounts and generally fill in wherever I am needed.
I have a bachelor's degree in dietetics from Michigan State University and was a licensed Dietitian for about 16 years. After our son Matthew was born I resigned from St. Thomas Hospital to start helping out part time at our office. 23 years later and I am still helping out.
Each and every day I am blessed to be able to work in an environment where the Doctor and staff really care about the patient's. I love to see our patients get well and return to our office smiling and happy because we have provided them with excellent care in their time of need.
In addition to being a mom to three young adults Matt, Taylour and Kristin. Just this last year we added a new family member Eric. Taylour married a wonderful young Eric Seo originally from Seoul South Korea. He has been a wonderful addition to the family and makes Taylour very happy.
I am Doctor Allen's Office Manager. I have been with Marshall County Chiropractic since October of 2006. I was born in Michigan; we then moved to Florida and finally settled here in the Lewisburg area since 1990. I started as the front desk manager and worked my way up to the assistant office manager and just recently got promoted to Office Manager. I love to watch our patients grow wtih our clinic just as I have in the past and still do. I enjoy being able to help our patients in any way that I can whether it is being available to answer questions, help with paperwork, to give a listening ear or even to give a hug or two when it is necessary. I feel that if I can make at least one person smile or laugh each day, then I am making this world a better place.
I have been blessed with a wonderful family. I have been married to my husband Tommy Jett since August of 2005. I also have two daughters; Tori who keeps me busy with her being on the high school bowling team and the youth trap and skeet team and Heather who has blessed us with two grandchildren; Brady and Ben, who definitely keeps us on our toes. In the summer months I love to be outside camping, fishing, hunting and I recently found out that I love to canoe. It does help though that my husband does all the paddling as I soak up the sun! I also love to go on cruises with my mother and Tori, we have been to many different places and have seen many wonderful things. I feel that we should live each day to the fullest because we may not be granted tomorrow.
Since October of 2009, I have enjoyed being the office marketing assistant, and Dr. Allen's stat Rat! I love being able to help out where and whenever needed. This leads to never having a dull day at Marshall County Chiropractic.
In 1986 I received an Associate Degree in Business from Baker College in Flint, Michigan, where I was born and raised. I came to Tennessee in 1990 to settle in Marshall County.
I have been married to Ken for over 30 years. Ann, the office manager, is my one and only daughter who has blessed me with the best gift ever, my granddaughter Tori. In my spare time I love to go on cruises and go to Vegas, and spend time with my family.
I joined the Marshall County Chiropractic family as the Front Desk Manager in October of 2014. I enjoy interacting with our patients on a daily basis, and I wake up each day looking forward to coming to work. I hope that I can share some of that enthusiasm with my fellow staff and our patients.
I was born in Memphis, TN and moved to Nashville in the fourth grade. I graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1986 with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development. Over the course of my adult life I have lived in Tennessee, Mississippi, North Carolina, Arizona and Virginia. I came back home to Middle Tennessee in 2010. I have been blessed with five children and eleven wonderful grandchildren. On August 5, 2017 I married the love of my life. My husband Dennis is truly a blessing from God in my life.
I strive to live a self-sufficient lifestyle through gardening and preserving my own food, raising chickens, foraging for wild edibles, and using and selling essential oils. My next adventure is to tap my own maple trees for syrup. I prefer to take a natural approach to my life and healthcare. I believe that God gave us the best resources in nature for taking care of our bodies; and we need to get back to treating ourselves with nature's medicine cabinet as opposed to what is behind the pharmacy counter.
My name is Teresa Longshore. I am the newest staff member at Marshall County Chiropractic. I started as Dr. Allen's Assistant in October of 2017. Formerly, I was a stay at home mom and chose to get back into the work force. After exploring my options, I decided to begin my career at Marshall County Chiropractic. Every day I look forward to learning about all the different personalities our patients have.
Having been born and raised in South Dakota, I moved to Marshall County in 2008, and graduated from Cornersville High School in 2012. My husband, Corey, and I have been married since September of 2017, but we have been together as a couple since 2010. We have two sons, Brantley was born in 2013 and Gannon was born in 2015. As a family, we enjoy being outdoors, riding four wheelers and riding on the tractor while bush hogging.
