Dr. Dasha Ilushin D.C., Pediatric Specialist, was first introduced to chiropractic medicine at a young age through her experience as a gymnast and competitive cheerleader. Her passion for these sports helped foster her appreciation for the potential her body held as well as her ability to perform at an elite level. Dr. Ilushin's involvement in athletics helped her to recognize the impact chiropractic medicine made on her performance and later played a key role when deciding her career path.
Upon receiving her B.A. in Kinesiology from The University of North Texas, Dr. Ilushin went on to pursue her interest in chiropractic medicine at Parker University in Dallas, TX. In addition to extensive doctoral coursework, her passion for working with children led her to complete the 14-month chiropractic pediatric certification as well as a certification in the Webster technique. Dr. Ilushin loves working with mothers-to-be and believes that women can experience an easier pregnancy as well as decreased labor & delivery times if given best chiropractic care during the crucial 9 months following conception.
In her free time, Dr. Ilushin enjoys working out, spending time with family and friends, and being outdoors with her dog Andie!

Dr. Kelly Byrne D.C., Pediatric Specialist, has always been very passionate about working with children.
Dr. Kelly received her BA in Chemistry and Biology from the University of Colorado and her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Parker University here in Dallas. During the last year of Chiropractic school she went through the 14 month pediatric certification as well as doing an internship under a pediatric/pregnancy Chiropractor in Colorado. Dr. Kelly has a range of techniques to treat things such as torticollis, colic, reflux, flat head, nursing problems, constipation, allergies, etc. Dr. Kelly also does Chiropractic wellness checks on children to make sure their bodies are functioning at 100%. Pregnancy is also a passion of Dr. Kelly’s. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is not only very important for mom, but also for the baby. Chiropractic care will help mom be pain free, allow the baby to have the space he/she needs in the womb and helps lower labor and delivery duration.
“I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91

Emily “Emma” MacLaughlin is so excited to join Forever Young as their front desk receptionist!
Emma has spent the last 5 years in differing customer service jobs and has a real passion for connecting with people. Growing up, Emma witnessed the battle her mother went through with a chronic pain disorder and has gained empathy for the unseen illnesses that are so painful and debilitating. During that time she saw the benefit and relief her mom got from seeing a chiropractor and it began her journey into a more holistic lifestyle. She looks forward to embarking on this new journey with such an amazing team!
In her free time, Emma tries to tame her cat Scout or can be found playing crosswords and Sudoku.
