Brett grew up in Davenport, Iowa, where chiropractic was founded, and returned after college to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. He now practices using the Palmer Package, a comprehensive set of chiropractic adjustment techniques that includes elements developed by chiropractic innovators, such as Toggle Recoil (developed by Dr. B.J. Palmer), Diversified (developed by Dr. D.D. Palmer), Thompson (developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson) and Gonstead (developed by Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead).


Brett founded Skinner Chiropractic in Lexington in 1996 and expanded to offer integrative and functional medicine by opening Skinner Wellness Center in 2018.


"We saw a need to offer an alternative experience for our patients who get pulled in different directions depending on the specialist they last visited," he says. "We go beyond the individual condition to look at the patient as a whole."

Brett is an avid golfer and is married with two children.
