Chiropractic Frederick MD Brooka Smith



Brooka grew up in a small town in southern Pennsylvania where she spent most of her time with her large family and friends. She enjoys the beach as much as ice cream, and loves to travel to new places. Brooka is passionate about community and desires to build it wherever she goes.

In addition, Brooka has a huge passion for serving and educating people. She wants people to know about the incredible power and design of the human body, that God does not make junk, and our bodies are meant to heal from the inside out. Brooka strives for the masses to know this truth. She wants to see restoration in health and relationships among families. When a family unit is functioning healthier, it contributes to a happier, healthier community.

Brooka graduated Summa Cum Laude from Salisbury University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. She spent 3 years teaching kindergarten and loving on the little ones in Daytona Beach, FL while Dr. Adam started and finished schooling. Her love for chiropractic grew as well as her desire to build a business ministry with her husband, and now she is co-owner and office manager of the practice. Brooka loves to educate people in our community about what true health looks like!

Chiropractic Frederick MD Karina Shnowske



Karina grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota and is the youngest in her family. She grew up spending time with her family, cousins, and going to her grandparents cabin in the summertime, learning to water ski and wakeboard behind the boat. The Land of 10,000 Lakes will always be special as she is a true midwestern girl at heart.

She and her husband, Will, moved to Maryland in early 2020 to pursue a job opportunity and are excited to be on this new adventure and build their life together while exploring a new part of the country. They enjoy trying new restaurants, spending time with friends, and investing into youth students at their church where Will is employed.

Chiropractic Frederick MD Leah Tester



Leah was born in Washington D.C. and moved to the Frederick County area when she was 2 years old with her parents and two brothers. She was active through high school by getting involved with talent shows and playing lacrosse, field hockey and basketball.

She was inducted into the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) her junior year, and enjoyed making art pieces alongside her classmates while helping special needs kids in her school learn more about art and how to create it.

Leah earned her Bachelor’s of Art Degree in the fall of 2020, along with a prestigious award titled the Mary Ellen Randolph Prize for outstanding academic achievement and dedication in her field of study which was a degree in Studio Arts with a Minor in Art History. Leah is a freelance artist who commissions and sells her own pieces, and she feels art is a way for someone to express how they feel and work out their emotions in a fun and positive way. She believes our thoughts control everything around us, and if we think positive thoughts we will live a more positive life.

Leah has always been fascinated with how the body works and how everything is connected. Becoming a Chiropractic Assistant at Restoration Family Chiropractic has opened Leah’s eyes to how important it is to have a healthy and functioning spine, and how if you are healthy, you can conquer every day in the best way! Leah feels very blessed to be able to work in an environment that encourages people to live healthier lives while helping them every step of the way.
