About the Editor:
Dr. Dolly A. Garnecki is a licensed chiropractor practicing in central Virginia. By day, she is the President and Director of a health care practice–working with patients of all ages to optimize health and wellness with the added specialty of scoliosis treatment. At night, she blogs at Traveling with Baby and freelances.
She has earned a B.A. in Psychology, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. In the near future, she plans to earn a Certification in Pediatrics. Dr. Dolly enjoys hiking and camping in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains with her husband Steve (married: 9/3/2000) and son Calvin (10/30/2007). You’ll often find her immersed in books and articles on health and nutrition.
One day, she and her husband plan to provide health care to orphans in third-world countries through regular short-term stints. In the interim, she enjoys reading and coloring with her son and racing toy cars.
She was a published author by age 17 for an independent research study on pulmonary and exercise physiology–since then, she’s written articles for Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida’s student newspaper, the Palmer Triune (as a senior staff writer), Command Magazine, and the Tinker Take-Off. She was interviewed and featured in Your Mother Wears Combat Boots: Humorous, Harrowing and Heartwarming Stories of Military Women by Michele Hunter Mirabile, published in November 2007. Most notably, Dr. Dolly co-authored a case study* on cerebral palsy and urinary incontinence that was published in a peer-reviewed academic journal.
Traveling with Baby was launched in May 2007…fresh on the heels of Dr. Dolly’s graduate school blog chronicles: Chropractic Perspectives. Since she became a “Mom Blogger,” Dr. Dolly also blogged for a brief period at Deep South Moms.
She’s often asked for her expert opinion on back health-related articles including a Backpack Basics piece for the September 2009 issue of Scholastic Parent & Child Magazine. Currently, she writes a health column in Forward / Adelante: Virginia’s First Bilingual Business Journal.
