Chiropractor Leland NC Marcus Woodburn


Marcus Woodburn D.C.

Dr. Woodburn is from Riegelwood, NC and grew up in the Cape Fear area. He attended high school at Wilmington Christian Academy where he was an all-state baseball player. After high school, Dr. Woodburn went on to attend Liberty University where he studied athletic training and found his calling in chiropractic. He learned how the body is supposed to function when its working at its highest level. 

This drove him to attend Sherman College of Chiropractic where he obtained his doctorate of chiropractic. After graduating, Dr. Woodburn decided to move back to Leland and serve his community by teaching them how to live a life that is healthy and free of drugs and medication. 

Chiropractor Leland NC Nicole Smith Meet The Team


Nicole Smith D.C.

I am Dr. Nicole Smith DC, a prenatal & early childhood chiropractor and certified birth doula. I grew up in the small town of Tewksbury, Massachusetts where my developing passion for chiropractic began when I landed a job working as an assistant for two amazing Chiropractors in Burlington, MA.

After leaving Massachusetts, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia where I graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University in 2019. During my time in school, I focused my studies on perinatal care and early childhood with a special interest in children following birth trauma. I am an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and a Webster Certified Chiropractor, listed on their resource network. Additionally, I am a graduate of the Slak Institute for Functional Neurology of Pediatrics, and The Peak Potential Institute as a certified SOT pediatric practitioner.

When able, I enjoy donating my time as a board member of Mission Life International where I have traveled to Haiti numerous times to provide chiropractic care and aided in the opening of Mission Life Birthing Center. She has donated time in Haiti, Peru, and Mexico for similar missions and hopes to continue her services across borders.

Chiropractic Leland NC Christy Woodburn Meet The Team

Office Manager


Christy and Dr. Marcus met and started dating in 2011. At the time, Christy was an Emergency Medical Technician and a Volunteer Firefighter for Acme-Delco Riegelwood Fire & Rescue. Due to the stresses that Fire and Rescue have on the body, Dr. Marcus introduced Christy to a chiropractor in Wilmington, N.C. (that he had been under care of since he was a young boy). It was there that Christy discovered she had a mild case of scoliosis. She continued with chiropractic care and saw substantial improvement. 

In 2014 Dr. Marcus and Christy were married. After Dr. Marcus graduated in 2017, he and Christy moved back to Riegelwood, NC. In October of 2017, they welcomed their first child, Kinley, into the world. Christy was adjusted by Dr. Marcus all throughout her pregnancy and was only in labor for 4 hours, with no pain medications or interventions. In May of 2020 Christy and Dr. Marcus welcomed their youngest daughter, Brooklyn, into the world.  This time Christy was only in labor for an hour and a half and again, went without pain medications or interventions. Christy gives all the credit to God and Chiropractic.

Jordan was born and raised in Wilmington.  She attended North Brunswick High School, where she was an early graduate.  A short time before Jordan graduated, she began receiving chiropractic care by Dr. Marcus.  She enjoyed learning many fascinating things about chiropractic, and saw the benefits it had in her own life.  She soon found the opportunity to join the GPC team, and begin helping the community she has grown up in.
