Kellie Brown is the co-owner of Advantage Therapy Solutions. She graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy and certification in Suzuki Pedagogy.  She received her certification of Neurologic Music Therapy from the Center for Biomedical Research in Music and began specialized practice in Neurologic Music Therapy working with many different populations around Eastern North Carolina from 2001-2006. One of her most rewarding and educational experiences was working as a NMT for a Neurodevelopmental Pediatrician at the Clinic for Special Children in New Bern, NC on a team with Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy. 

 

Kellie was treated with whole body PBM herself, relieving years of built up spinal arthritis from old injuries that no other pain management, surgery or medication could address. She and Dr. Mathew Wilding then partnered together to bring these therapies to Greenville, NC.  Kellie has received training and certification from the Rocky Mountain Laser College in photobiomodulation safety and implementation.

After obtaining her Bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) Noel earned her Laser Therapy Certification from Thor Photomedicine.  Due to her lifelong interest in wellness and her fascination with the Nutritional methods that Dr. Wilding uses in practice, she decided to complete a Nutrition Certification from the International Sports Science Association, and is also currently in the process of completing her Masters in Clinical Nutrition at the University of Bridgeport. As one of our very first employees, Noel has been a part of every stage of growth at ATS. This, combined with her love of leadership and the mission of our clinic, is why she was promoted to Operations Manager in 2021. In addition to offering Nutrition Counseling and assisting Dr. Wilding in Follow-Up Functional Nutrition Assessments, Noel oversees the daily operations of all departments at ATS.  

 

Through her personal venture, Nutrition with Noel, she also provides educational classes (check out our next Nutrition Night program!) and resources to our community and beyond about how to thrive through a nourished and active lifestyle.
