Upon completing undergraduate studies in the basic sciences at the Ohio State University, he entered Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated in 1989 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After a 5 year associateship with Dr. Donald Moon, Dr. McCoskey is now the senior associate at Living Well Spine Center.
Since graduating, Dr. McCoskey has attended numerous post-graduate technical seminars searching for more effective ways to correct spinal problems. He has worked to advance the chiropractic profession by serving in a variety of capacities for the Miami Valley Chiropractic Society, past president of the Ohio State Chiropractic Association, the American Chiropractic Association, the International Chiropractic Association, and the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. Committed to community service, Dr. McCoskey is a member and past president of the Fairborn Rotary Club as well as the Fairborn Chamber of Commerce.
Dr McCoskey is a contributing editor for Envision magazine, focusing on health related topics providing timely information on living your best life. He also serves as a guest lecturer at chiropractic colleges, community organizations and corporations. As a result of the knowledge that he has acquired over his time of service, Dr. McCoskey is becoming widely known as the “go-to guy” for health and wellness information, and life-style tips. You can see him regularly on WDTN's Living Dayton as he shares his experience with the Miami Valley.
His passion for life, health, and the Holy Spirit are reflected in his family, work and lectures.
Dr. Emily Staples was raised in northwest Ohio, where many of her family members still reside. She received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology from the University of Dayton, in Dayton, Ohio. While working on her bachelor’s degree, she spent two summers working for the Boy Scouts of America at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. She, also, spent a summer at Texas A&M University as part of the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program sponsored and funded by grants through the National Science Foundation (NSF). While there, she completed a research project in evolutionary genetics which was later published by the Ohio Academy of Science.
After completing her undergraduate work, Dr. Emily pursued her interest in genetics and started working at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in the Division of Human Genetics. She worked in both Molecular Genetics and Cytogenetics. She learned a great deal about genetic testing and clinical genetics from peers, post-doctoral fellows, medical residents, and lab directors.
After 8 years in genetics, Dr. Emily was ready to pursue a new chapter in her life and moved to Marietta, Georgia to start chiropractic school at Life University. She graduated Magna Cum Laude, with additional honors for exhibiting Vitalism, and for providing supplemental instruction to her peers
Dr. Emily was diagnosed with scoliosis while in junior high and was told she would need a back brace if the curvature in her spine progressed before she finished growing. Shortly thereafter, she began her lifetime commitment to regular chiropractic care. Thankfully, regular chiropractic care combined with an active lifestyle as a runner and tennis player prevented her scoliosis from worsening. As a chiropractic patient, Dr. Emily preferred a more gentle approach to getting adjusted and was surprised that her migraine headaches significantly improved when she started under upper cervical specific chiropractic care. This is ultimately what led Dr. Emily to decide to become a chiropractor. She started learning about upper cervical specific chiropractic care as soon as she could after starting chiropractic school. She attended numerous upper cervical seminars while in school, took several upper cervical technique courses at school, and was an intern at the Sweat Institute, learning from Dr. Roy Sweat who invented the Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic technique. She is always sharpening her skills as an upper cervical chiropractor by attending seminars, continuing education, and is currently working towards her Level One Certification in NUCCA.
Dr. Emily lives with her husband David in Fairborn along with their cat Milo. She enjoys traveling, hiking, cooking, and living a healthy lifestyle. She has been to all 50 states and a number of countries.
Before working here at Living Well Spine Center, I was a payroll manager for a trucking company. Very stressful and unfulfilling job. I became a patient of Dr. McCoskey in 1996 with my husband and 2 boys who were 3yrs old and 18 months at the time. After a year of treatment my family and I were starting to get healthier and happier. So then I became a team member of Living Well Spine Center in 1997. I feel God had placed me here and instilled a passion for providing help and hope to others who have been suffering unnecessarily. My oldest son has graduated from college and the youngest has 2 years left in college. My husband and I enjoy shooting, eating and traveling. I believe in God, He does all the healing.
I have called Fairborn home my entire life, as has my husband. We met in high school while cast in a play together, and were friends for years before we started dating. We have been married since December of 1985 and are blessed beyond measure with two incredible children! Katie, our eldest, is a UD graduate and lives and works locally, for which we are most fortunate. Our son Patrick serves in the military and currently lives in Germany
Tim and I are passionate about all things regarding nature/conservation, the environment and especially the amazing animal kingdom! The Columbus Zoo is one of our favorite destinations. In our spare time we enjoy golfing and also traveling – whether it be to the beach, the mountains in TN, or to another country to visit our son. We enjoy serving, worshiping and learning with our faith family at Enon United Methodist Church.
Before joining the team here at Living Well Spine Center, I had worked for ten years in sales for State Farm Insurance. I was happy when the opportunity arose to transition to a totally new role that entailed more of focus on service for our patients here. It is a joy to be part of such a caring, informed and dynamic team and I am grateful that each day provides the opportunity to learn something new regarding the wellness approach to a happy and healthy life!
My name is Haylie. I am a Dayton native, but have lived in many states. I began my chiropractic journey as a patient in March of 2019. It wasn’t long after that God gifted me a little extra courage to turn in my resume to Dr. McCoskey. Then in November I was offered a job with the Living Well Spine Center team as the New Patient Care Coordinator.
I spend time out of the office surrounded by those I love, boxing at Title Boxing Club, cooking for my mamaw, trying a new hobby, and attending local doula events/births. On the weekends I love to go to local farmer markets and occasionally I call BINGO at a local retirement home. I also like to take short weekend getaways. I love being able to serve and be a part of our patient’s wellness journey, so thank you all for making this such a wonderful place to spend my days. I am truly blessed!
In 2010, I became a medical anomaly. Chronic stress fractures in my legs ended my dreams of playing soccer at a competitive level and stopped me short of my goal to run a half marathon. After numerous tests and scans, no doctor or specialist I turned to could figure out the cause. So, I changed my lifestyle. I began eating locally-sourced organic foods as much as possible, became more conscious of what I was putting on my skin, and soon my stress fractures were gone. That began my journey into health and wellness.
I met my husband Ryan in 2014, and together we have continued our journey and started a family. God led us to Living Well Spine Center in 2017, and we immediately knew we had found our home.
I grew up along the Ohio River in a small town called Ripley and moved to Dayton in 2010 to attend Wright State University. After earning my degrees in communication, marketing, and organizational leadership, I began a career in corporate recruiting at a local software company.
I was diagnosed with scoliosis just before starting 7th grade, and I wore a back brace for two years to prevent the curvature in my spine from worsening. It wasn’t until I started experiencing vertigo in my mid-twenties when I finally considered chiropractic care. I was desperate for answers when my primary care doctor couldn’t provide any reasoning for my new symptoms. Luckily a former coworker of mine introduced me to Living Well Spine Center.
I took full advantage of the services offered here - from corrective spinal care to nutritional consultations and body code energy healing. I also began reducing the toxic burden on my body by switching all of my conventional personal care and household items to ones that included only high-quality, clean, toxin-free ingredients. I no longer experience regular vertigo episodes and have much less back pain from scoliosis. After 3 ½ years as a patient, I was given the opportunity to leave my corporate job and join the Living Well team.
My husband David and I enjoy hiking, traveling and adventuring around Dayton. We are active members of South Dayton Presbyterian Church and spend a good amount of time visiting with our families out of town. We are both passionate about holistic wellness and are so thankful we found Living Well!

Having grown up in a home with a father as a chiropractor and a mother who was diligent on raising her kids as naturally as possible, Ali has been exposed to many holistic ways of healing and nurturing the body that have carried over into raising her own family. Chiropractic care, nutrition, muscle testing and energy healing have been a way of life for the Kettering family.
Ali has always been passionate particularly about muscle testing and the way it can benefit our lives by getting answers regarding our health that even medical doctors sometimes cannot get. With the many types of muscle testing and energy healing techniques out there, Ali knew The Emotion Code and The Body Code were a technique she had to explore. She has always felt God leading her in a way of using muscle testing to help others but had not found the one that fit her best…until now.
Through God’s perfect plan, He brought Ali to a place where she pursued sessions for her own emotional/spiritual/physical health at Living Well Spine Center during a difficult time of transition in her families’ lives. During that time, not only did she experience healing but also a new purpose for her life.
Since then, Ali has pursued and received certification in The Emotion Code and The Body Code. She is beyond excited to be coming alongside with Living Well Spine Center to offer this service to the community remotely! Being able to practice The Body Code from another location, she is grateful for the chance to spread the LWSC mission to serve and educate others by helping them make better decisions for their overall health and wellbeing!
Schedule a Living Well healing session with Grace by clicking here.
Grace is the youngest of the McCoskey girls. She was born an avid animal lover, horses in particular, but she loves and cares for all kinds. She spends her time divided amongst several barns in the area working, teaching people and developing horses. She is very intuitive, and has a deep understanding of the fragile nature of animals, and has seen how destructive some training techniques, poor socialization, or multiple homes can be for these creatures.
Having witnessed The Body Code success, Grace has learned the skills that are necessary to help animals and their owners release old emotions that may be negatively impacting their well-being and also their relationship.
As most people know, animals are highly sensitive and are impacted just as we are. They can not tell us about it with words, but we see it in their actions... disobedience, skittishness, barking, etc. However, they respond quickly to The Body Code sessions because of their willingness to please, and their lack of preconceived ideas. Identifying and releasing their emotional baggage is an ideal way to care for their pure, genuine spirits providing them the opportunity to heal and re-balance from real or perceived trauma in their lives.
When Grace isn't at the barn, she enjoys quality time with Graham, her husband, Hiccup and Rudy, their Great Danes, and Toothless, their cat. And also with Cash, her gelding, Lucy, her mare, and Tamale, her rescue pony.
