Dr. Troy Willis

Lifestyle Chiropractor

Dr. Troy knew he wanted to be a wellness physician when he was first exposed to Chiropractic while at St. Xavier High School.  It was there that he first came to understand that health comes from within and is dramatically affected by the way we treat our bodies and minds.

 Due to his personal struggle with digestive disease and the results he has been afforded through natural health efforts, he decided to dedicate his life to teaching others about the amazing healing potential of the body. Following undergraduate work at the University of Louisville, Dr. Troy attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia where he not only earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree, he met his wonderful wife, Karen. Together they have three children who have grown up in the natural Chiropractic lifestyle with astounding results.

After eight years in practice, Dr. Willis opened Live Well Natural Health in June 2011. His goal: to better serve the Louisville community by providing more pieces of the total wellness puzzle, and encouraging people of all ages to eat, sleep, move and think WELL.


Kristin Fentress

Practice Administrator

Born and raised in Louisville, Kristin is a graduate of Ballard High School. Having spent many years working with children and in Customer Service, she was confident that helping people would be an essential part of her life.

After a significant amount of time "nursing" — pun intended — an obsession with the medical field, Kristin eagerly chose to attend ATA College where she graduated Summa cum Laude in May of 2011, earning a diploma in Medical Office Assisting.

Enter Live Well!

In June of 2011, when Live Well officially opened for business, Kristin was ecstatic to be standing at Dr. Troy's side. 

Still hungry for knowledge and determined to be the best at her job, Kristin immediately re-enrolled at ATA, and again graduated Summa cum Laude, this time with an Associate’s Degree in Clinical and Administrative Medical Assisting.

A dedicated member of the Live Well team, Kristin knows the ins and outs of the office and takes pride in keeping things running smoothly. She rarely forgets a face, and knows nearly every patient by name. Most importantly, she is the smiling face that has all the answers—or at least knows how to find them!

When not at work, Kristin enjoys keeping her brain in shape by doing crosswords and other puzzles. She will squeal at any animal or baby that she comes across, and if granted cuddling privileges, her day will certainly be made!   :)


HeaTHER PERKINS

Wellness Coordinator

Heather is a Level 1 certified Nutrition Coach and is excited to bring her knowledge to Live Well as our Wellness Coordinator. She and Dr. Troy work together to create results driven by realistic programs to help our clients reach their health goals. Heather consults with clients one-on-one, in small groups, and even coordinates challenges and events centered around healthy lifestyle activities.

Heather moved to Louisville in High School and attended the University of Kentucky for her undergraduate work before completing her graduate degree at the University of Louisville. At UK is where she met her husband, Tyler, and developed a passion for running. 25 years later, she is still running and she and Tyler have two beautiful daughters, Lauren and Caitlin (plus a sweet old dog named Lucky.)

Heather holds a degree in marketing, management and education, but for many years now her passion has been in health and fitness. A struggle with infertility led her to re-evaulate her eating and overall lifestyle choices and fueled her passion for nutrition and the body’s ability to heal itself when it is fed and cared for properly.

Heather works diligently to help our clients reach their health goals and become the best version of themselves possible. She believes that we can all find balance in life and live life to the fullest without having to give up the things that we love. Health and nutrition are a lifelong process and she is excited to help others get started on their own journey.

Outside of working at Live Well, Heather enjoys baking and cooking for her family, exercising(especially OrangeTheory), hot yoga and reading. She loves spending time with her family, especially vacationing anywhere that has a warm beach!
