After a long and disheartening experience with "traditional medicine", our faith led us to Dr. Jim Warner, a local chiropractor. In a matter of visits, he was able to turn her entire clinical picture around. This began her family's journey into alternative medicine. Today, Dr. Kim's passion is to return the gift that was given to her family in 1998.
Dr. Williams returned to school in August 2003 at National University of Health Sciences. She received her Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine in December 2006. During that time, she also received specialized training in acupuncture, botanical medicines, and women's health. Dr. Kim received an advanced proficiency rating from Activator Methods Inc. In October 2005. She became certified in Family Practice in November 2008. Dr. Williams is completing her National board exams for her Diplomate from the American Board of Chiropractic Internists.
Dr. Williams is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, Illinois State Chiropractic Association, and the Christian Chiropractors Association.
Today Dr. Williams practices in Rockford. She married on February 26, 2016, to her life partner Doug and along with their 8 children blended family share their passion for health and wellness!

Hi, I’m Chandra. I am an AANP board-certified family nurse
practitioner born and raised in Rockford. I received my
Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Rockford University and later
pursued my Master of Science in Nursing from Olivet Nazarene
University in Bourbonnais. I have a diverse nursing background and
am well-versed in integrative, regenerative, and functional medicine, hospice, acute and long-term care, school nursing, and nursing education. After feeling unfulfilled in Western medicine and experiencing my own unresolved health issues, I began to pursue additional training in functional and holistic medicine with a significant interest and personal connection with alternative cancer
treatment, metabolic disorders, and women’s health/infertility. I found a passion for alternative medicine with a specific focus on wellness care and disease prevention, in a world that too often focuses on illness care. When I’m not serving my community as a healthcare professional, I enjoy spending time with my family
