Dr. Shelby Carter, DC is a Nebraska native, who grew up outside of Lincoln. She was an avid athlete that played select/travel softball in Lincoln and went on to play softball at Briar Cliff University.

She continued her education and earned a Master’s in Sports Science and Rehabilitation from Logan University in 2016.
