Meet the Doctors
Dr. Brandon Shriner
Dr. Brandon Shriner graduated from Ohio University in 2002 with a BA in Exercise Physiology. While there, he competed at 149lbs for the Bobcats until a career-ending neck surgery changed his All-American dreams.
After multiple failed attempts to find the cause to his health problems, Dr. Brandon found Max Living chiropractic and his life was forever changed. He no longer suffered from chronic migraines and numbness in his arms and he decided he wanted to help others the way he was helped. Dr. Brandon met his wife, Dr. Samantha, at Life University in chiropractic school and they were called back to Lewis Center, Ohio to open Revive Chiropractic.
Dr. Brandon’s drive to share the truth about health and healing in the community has allowed him to transform the lives of many families. His love for knowledge has driven him to be an expert in Spinal Correction to restore the God-given potential of our nervous system. He knows the body’s potential to heal itself and has a hard time accepting the chronic need for mainstream drugs and surgery. He has had to watch too many loved ones plagued with the common diseases and sicknesses of our country. He knows God has intended us for more and loves to watch lives be transformed through chiropractic care and healthy lifestyle changes.
Dr. Brandon’s passion and love for people has drawn him to serve in many areas of the community. He loves to impact the youth by serving many sports programs and the FCA in the local community, especially wrestling, in hopes they don’t have to go down the same path he went in his athletic career. In addition to young athletes, he has the opportunity to help some of the top athletes in the world on the Sports Performance Council for Team USA wrestling.
Since his surgery, where they told him he would never be able to lift heavy again, he has competed at the Crossfit Games, as well as providing care to those athletes wishing to push the limits. You can also find him donating his time at the Columbus Dream Center providing chiropractic care to those in need.
When Dr. Brandon isn’t serving patients, you will most likely catch him hanging with his three boys (Beckett, Zeke, and Hendrix) and his boxer Bo. You wouldn’t know this from being in the office, but Dr. Brandon is naturally a “homebody” who loves spending time outdoors, bow hunting and working out.
Dr. Samantha Shriner
Dr. Samantha was born and raised in Portage, Michigan. Growing up, she always had a heightened curiosity for a healthy lifestyle and started off at Grand Valley State University working toward a physical therapy degree. Halfway through her program, she discovered chiropractic and its underlying principle that the body was made to heal itself. She knew this was exactly the profession she was called into, made the switch and headed down to Life University to get her doctor of chiropractic in Atlanta, Georgia.
Going down to Life University was a life-changing event. She was able to work through years of chronic strep throat, ear infections, weight issues, and female issues. She used to get severely sick four times a year and had to take NyQuil every night just to fall asleep. After regular chiropractic care and healthy lifestyle changes, Dr. Sam no longer gets sick every season, lost weight and female issues resolved. Along with restoring her health, she also met her husband, Dr. Brandon, down in chiropractic school. He somehow convinced a Michigan girl to marry an Ohio boy.
Fast forward a few years and the Shriner Doctors welcomed their first (of 3) baby boy Beckett into the world. Despite doing “all the right things” he was a super colicky baby and had A LOT of tummy issues.
Relying on the foundation that God doesn’t make babies or people to be sick and suffering their whole lives, they sought an answer. They discovered this is a common issue with parents and babies today, but knew it definitely wasn’t normal. After getting to the cause of baby Beckett’s health issues, Dr. Samantha wanted to make sure no other babies and families had to suffer and be told this was a “normal baby thing, and to just deal with it until they grow out of it."
Being able to offer patients health and healing the way we live our lives, is one of the greatest blessings and joys Dr. Samantha has. We know in our hearts true healing comes from above, down, inside and out and getting to the cause of the problem is the best “treatment” we can give. She loves to be patient’s cheerleaders in their health journey and believes there is a cause for every health issue. If she doesn’t know the cause immediately, she will search until she finds it, learning and educating herself.
Outside of the office, Dr. Sam loves being a boy mom to Beckett, Zeke, Hendrix and their boxer Bo (who you occasionally see in the office). The whole family loves to be active and outside whenever possible and the boys especially like trying out the new healthy recipes mom makes. She loves disproving the myth that eating healthy doesn’t taste good.
Dr. Mary Finch-Bruney
Dr. Mary was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. She received her doctorate from the National College of Chiropractic and has been in practice for over 20 years. While her passion is in transforming the health of families, her mission is to help people experience true health, hope, and wholeness.
Since joining the Revive team in February of 2017 and incorporating the 5 essentials lifestyle into her own life, Dr. Mary has lost a total of 45 pounds. She has been married to her husband, Scott, for 22 years, and has a 15-year-old daughter, Corinne.
When she is not in the office helping patients, you can find her at the barn helping Corinne take care of the horses. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends, hiking and camping. Dr. Mary is an avid reader, loves animals, and goes to the beach anytime she can.
Meet the Team
Patient Account Specialist and Products Manager
Kate’s journey with Revive Chiropractic first began in October 2017 when she became a patient. During her childhood, she was diagnosed with scoliosis. Although it was not severe at the time, the curvature got worse as she grew up. During her early 20s, she began to have extreme back pain and was also diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and adrenal fatigue. When the pain became constant, she confided in her mom who encouraged Kate to call her cousin, Dr. Brandon.
Shortly after beginning care at Revive, she started to feel the pain go away! Inspired by the education and results she was receiving from her care, Kate began to take full ownership of her health and dove right into learning as much as she could through various Revive events. Kate also enrolled in the Revive Metabolix program so that she could take her health to the next level. During the program, her mental health and energy began to improve significantly!
Now Kate is able to fully enjoy her favorite mode of transportation, biking. As long as the weather permits, she loves hopping on her bike instead of driving to wherever she wants to go. When she’s not on her bike, you can find her reading, being creative, organizing literally anything, cooking delicious healthy meals, listening to podcasts, making anyone laugh, or cuddling up with her rescue cat, Future. Although she is a huge animal lover, her biggest passion is people. Kate loves being with her family and friends as much as possible!
Max Metabolix Manager
Stephanie Mahaney was born and raised in Akron, OH. She attended Ohio Northern University where she received her Doctor of Pharmacy. During her time at ONU, she ALMOST switched majors to biochemistry or nutrition because she was fascinated by how vitamins and nutrients affected how our bodies functioned. This passion for true health and proper nutrition led Stephanie to join the Revive team.
Stephanie was a chiropractic patient at Revive Chiropractic since they first opened and despite the best chiropractic care and improved diet, she still struggled with some chronic health issues. When Revive started their Metabolix program Stephanie was intrigued and jumped on board to get tested. It was through the Metabolix program that Stephanie was able to address the root cause of her health issues and find healing. This led Stephanie to want to learn more and she eventually was able to join Dr. Sam in running the Metabolix Program.
Stephanie completed a Fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in 2018 so she could further her knowledge to better help those she serves at Revive Chiropractic.
When Stephanie is not at the office you can find her spending time with her family – her husband Michael and daughter Charlotte, finding new healthy recipes to try, reading, listening to music, CrossFit or some type of exercise, and researching more about nutrition and health.
