About Dr. Drew Vercellino
Dr. Drew Vercellino graduated with Honors from Life Chiropractic College West in 2015 and was immediately welcomed to the team at The Specific Chiropractic Center in Chico, CA. While attending chiropractic college, he invested in advanced training through “The Art of The Specific” and joined the ranks of a select few chiropractors proficient in the specialized work of specific upper cervical care. He shared this knowledge and training with his fellow members of the Upper Cervical Club at Life Chiropractic College West and now is part of the team that teaches “The Art of The Specific” program.
Throughout his doctoral training, Dr. Drew was an athletic performance coach for a highly sought after training program for high school volleyball athletes. This program not only focused on physical performance, but mental growth and development as well. He also maintained an active role as a Functional Movement Specialist and Kettlebell trainer and continues to compete at a professional level in Kettlebell Lifting.
Throughout his training, Dr. Drew served with the El Salvador Outreach Program four times. These events, initiated by The Art of The Specific training program, have allowed Dr. Vercellino to see thousands of patients and educate people about chiropractic care internationally.
When he is not in the office, Dr. Drew enjoys hiking the everlasting trails of the Bay area and bringing the community together by teaching Kettlebell classes in various parks around town. You can also find him walking around the Farmer’s Markets looking for the freshest food… and coffee around.
About Dr. Aanand Sharma
Dr. Aanand “Zip” Sharma graduated with Honors from Life Chiropractic College West in 2022. A recipient of multiple philosophy and clinical awards, Dr Sharma spent countless hours during his doctorate program studying neuroscience and human health, leading him to join the advanced training group, “The Art of the Specific”, or TATS. Through TATS, Dr Sharma became aware that there was no better team to join than The Specific. Now, Dr Sharma gives back to the Chiropractic community by supporting his alma mater through the Knee Chest Technique club, engagement with the Delta Sigma Chi professional Chiropractic fraternity, and aspires to return to teach.
Prior to becoming a Chiropractor, Dr Sharma studied Mathematics at Whitman College and went on to serve as a Data Scientist and Consultant in Seattle, WA, working with large technology companies to solve complex business problems using mathematics and computer science. At the time, he struggled with anxiety and depression, and discovered Upper Cervical Chiropractic when the medication no longer served him. Though he enjoyed his first career, Dr Sharma believed that he could use his love for problem solving in a clinical setting to help patients who struggle with similar issues. He loves nerding out about data, systems, and research.
In addition to all of the above, Dr Sharma loves espresso, karaoke, and hosting dinner parties. He aspires to own a coffee shop back in his hometown of Seattle, WA, where he will eventually run his own Specific office.
