Dr. Emmanuel A. Kamara

Chiropractic Physician

Dr. Emmanuel Kamara was born in Montreal, Quebec and raised in Toronto, Ontario. He was introduced to chiropractic as a teenager when his mother started seeing a chiropractor in the Greater Toronto Area. After seeing how much chiropractic improved his mother's physical state, he began volunteering at chiropractic clinics and decided this was the profession he wanted to be in. Dr. Emmanuel graduated from York University in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. In 2015, Dr. Emmanuel moved to Davenport, Iowa to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. During his time at Palmer College he met his wife and best friend, Dr. Ashlee Kamara. As a chiropractor, Dr. Emmanuel has a passion for educating people on how they can live a healthy life. He believes that his job is not only to help patients regain their health, but to give patients the information they need to help maintain their health once they have regained it.  For Dr. Emmanuel, being a chiropractor is a dream come true.

Chiropractic Physician

Dr. Ashlee Kamara was born and raised in West Bloomfield, Michigan. In high school, she experienced a traumatic fall down the stairs that resulted in a concussion. She began to experience intense migraine headaches that were unresolved by multiple medications. Her headaches continued to worsen as she refused to give up her competitive cheerleading/gymnastic career. She found her way to a chiropractic clinic that changed her life forever. Within a matter of months of manual adjustments her headaches were completely gone after years of suffering from migraines. In 2016, she graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy with her Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry. She furthered her education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, where she earned a multitude of scholarships and graduated magna cum laude. At Palmer College, she developed a passion to help people regain and maintain their health.  Her mission is to educate people on the role that lifestyles plays on the most common health conditions we face, and to empower everyone to take charge of their health and the health of their families.


In her free time, Dr. Ashlee likes to read, watch movies, and spend time with her family. She also loves tutoring students in various subjects.
