Yes, you did read that correctly, Dr. Ellis is the ninth generation William Ellis! Originally from Fostoria, a rural town in Northwest Ohio, Dr. Ellis grew up in a small family with a younger sister and an ingenuitive attitude towards life. He always knew his aspirations would take him beyond the opportunities available in his home town.
Upon graduating from high school with honors, in 2001, Dr. Ellis kept his family tradition alive by enrolling in The Ohio State University for the 2001 fall semester. After attending OSU for two years with an undeclared major, he decided to focus his studies on a degree in Exercise Science. One day, during his senior year, an ad in the OSU school newspaper caught his eye. The ad had been placed by a local Chiropractor’s office, offering an internship to a student majoring in Exercise Science. At the time, his focus was not on becoming a Chiropractor, however it was not long before he discovered this internship would ultimately be opportunity of a lifetime!
Dr. Ellis graduated from The Ohio State University in 2006 with a Bachelors of Education in Exercise Science. He spent the next two years working as a Chiropractic Tech/Personal/Group Fitness Trainer at the same office where he had completed his internship. While he loved his job, Dr. Ellis quickly realized his true passion and career goal was to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.
Subsequently, in February of 2008 Dr. Ellis made the move to Davenport, Iowa to attend the Palmer College of Chiropractic. Although graduate school was a bit of an adjustment with all of the late nights and long hours of coursework, Dr. Ellis embarked on the daunting journey towards pursuing his passion. Along the way, he was fortunate to have met some life-long friends, while at the same time reveling in the clashes of collegiate banter from his classmates. Along with his studies, he enjoyed Palmer bowling intramurals and being an Ambassador for Palmer's Center for Business Development. After ten trimesters and three and a third years of intense coursework, Dr. Ellis graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in the summer of 2011.
During his leisure time, Dr. Ellis enjoys several hobbies including watching sports, especially his beloved Buckeyes, Strength Training, Woodworking, and Electronics.
