Dr. Tatum Johnston

Southside Family Chiropractic Co-Founder and Doctor Of Chiropractic

A native of Alabama, Dr. Tatum received her undergraduate degree in Nutrition from the University of Alabama. Dr. Tatum worked as a Registered Dietitian for three years. She went on to pursue a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, Georgia, where she graduated in 2011.

Dr. Tatum has always had a passion for a healthier lifestyle. Her discovery of chiropractic occurred when she started getting adjusted as a child after a neck injury. Even as a young child, she knew the importance of having your nervous system checked and wanted to share this with others.

Outside of practice, you can find her being a mom of two boys, cooking, watching sports, hanging out with friends and family, or at her favorite place, the beach.

Dr. Dan Johnston

Southside Family Chiropractic Co-Founder and Doctor Of Chiropractic

Dr. Dan is also originally from Alabama. His discovery of chiropractic happened in high school due to some extensive low back pain from a football injury. After a few visits to a chiropractor, he was able to play again pain free.

Dr. Dan graduated from Troy University with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Chemistry.

Due to his experience with chiropractic, he knew he wanted to help athletes. After having children of his own he became passionate about helping families also.

Outside of practice, you can find him being a dad to two young boys, coaching little league sports, grilling, and watching football.

Dr. Keisha Smith

Associate Doctor Of Chiropractic

Dr. Keisha Smith was raised in Willacoochee, Ga. In high school, she knew that she wanted to help people. In college, she discovered that it would be through Chiropractic. Her mom went to a chiropractor for severe migraines and it absolutely changed her life, as well as the trajectory of Dr. Keisha’s life. She received her Bachelors of Biology from Valdosta State University and graduated from Sherman College of Chiropractic in 2015 with honors.

Dr. Keisha is married with two boys, and one girl. She has a heart for helping others and is looking forward to bringing that passion to the community of Fayette and Coweta County with the SFC team!


Office Manager

Andrea is a vital piece of the Southside Family Chiropractic team. Originally from Tyrone, GA, she has quite an exciting life story. After journeying away for some years in Air Force service, Andrea graduated with honors at Mid-America Christian University before returning to her hometown and settling there. When not working hard on the job or helping others, you can find this animal lover checking out new restaurants while volunteering at their beloved local theater! She even keeps a menagerie of furry pals at home: 3 dogs, 2 bunnies, 1 cat, plus one turtle too!

She first became a part of the SFC family as a mother of a practice member and was amazed after seeing the results chiropractic care had in her son’s life. She loves being a part of the Southside Family Chiropractic team and seeing the amazing results chiropractic care has in the lives of our patients.

Bella Odum

Chiropractic Assistant

Bella is a Georgia native who moved to Newnan as a teen and graduated from East Coweta High School. Now she’s married, loves spending time with her furry family of four cats, and cheering on Florida football – but when she has free moments, you’ll find her writing poetry or mastering the perfect makeup look while listening to some tunes before setting sail for adventure aboard her favorite cruise ship!

Marisela Hutson

Massage Therapist

Marisela is SFC’s newest team member! After growing up in Newnan, she entered the Marines right out of high school where she completed 4 years of service. Marisela then attended Atlanta School of Massage in 2018, where she was able to pursue her passion!

Once she graduated, she moved back to Newnan with her 2 pups. She says she’s always wanted to be a Massage Therapist and is very excited to be working her dream job at last! We are so grateful to have Marisela on the SFC team.
