Dr. Josh Farmer
My name is Dr. Josh Farmer (Dr. Josh) & I am the owner of Maverick Chiropractic. I travel between the Forney and Wills Point locations to serve each community. I graduated from Parker Chiropractic College in 2009. I am proud of the exceptional Chiropractic education and training I have received. My primary focus is on wellness, and I aspire to help people achieve optimal health. I have worked with patients ranging from only a few hours old, to patients well into their 90’s. My adjusting techniques are gentle, specific and thorough. I have mastered a wide range of techniques including Diversified, Drop Techniques, Pediatrics, Activator, and Sacral Occipital Technique (SOT). This allows me to care for you in a manner best suited for what your body requires. I believe you have the right to know how your body works! I will support you in addressing your specific and personal areas of concern in order to help you reach and maintain optimal health.
I was born and spent most of my childhood in New Mexico. After graduating high school, I attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. This is where I met my beautiful wife, Mandi, who is from Arlington, TX. After I completed Chiropractic school in Dallas, we decided to move to Australia. I was employed by Total Lifestyle Chiropractic in Australia for seven years and was fortunate to serve and help many people.
Our family has grown since we left Texas eight years ago with the addition of our six-year-old daughter, Mckinley, our five-year-old son, Kyler, and our newest addition, Kolbie. My spare time is mainly spent on reading, cycling, soccer, volleyball, church, and spending quality time with my family. I am passionate about education and sharing my knowledge with the community. I am available for speaking engagements at your school, workplace, church group, or community group.
I look forward to meeting and supporting you and your family on your journey for health and wellness. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve you.
Dr. Vladimir Vedock
My name is Dr. Vladimir Vedock (Dr. Vlad). It is my upmost goal to maintain the level of excellence and dedication to your health that Maverick Chiropractic demands.
I am a graduate of Parker University, class of December 2018. I am proud of the exceptional Chiropractic education and training I have received. My primary focus will be providing the community of Wills Point and the surrounding area with affordable and quality chiropractic care. I have worked with a wide variety of patients and conditions during my time in school and I look forward to helping you achieve the health goals that you have.
My adjusting techniques are gentle, specific and patient focused. I am trained in a wide range of manual adjusting techniques and low force techniques. This variety ensures that your care is individual and focused to what you need. To be a Doctor means to be a teacher thus I will take the time to educate and answer any questions or concerns that you may have about your health and/or chiropractic care at Maverick Chiropractic.
I was born in Russia and adopted by my parents when I was 5 years old. I lived in Rochester, NY for 5 years and then moved to North Carolina about 16 years ago. I graduated from Appalachian State University (ASU) with a degree in exercise science. I met my wife Rachel at ASU while playing Quidditch (Yes the sport from Harry Potter). We moved to Dallas when I was accepted to the chiropractic program and TX has just grabbed our hearts. Once you come to Texas it’s hard to leave!
If I am not working I am spending time with Rachel, fiddling with my motorcycle, working on my car, playing with my dog (Lamborghini) and my cat (Kyra), or enjoying a cup (or more) of coffee.
I look forward to seeing you at Maverick Chiropractic!
Dr. David LaFerney
My name is David LaFerney (Dr. David), and I am enthusiastic about becoming the newest member of the Maverick Chiropractic team in Forney. One of my goals as a doctor in the Chiropractic profession is to help increase the population of people who receive Chiropractic care.
I was raised in Irving, Texas, and I earned Bachelors degrees in both Finance and Biology at the University of Texas at Dallas, and then I received my Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker University in 2017.
I have always wanted to pursue a career as a doctor due to the severe migraines I suffered from as a child, which were only relieved by Chiropractic care. I also chose the path of Chiropractic due to its emphasis on treating others by utilizing one’s own body to help heal itself from within without the use of medications and/or surgery. I also recognize that God has worked through me by helping me motivate people to consider their health as a priority in their busy lives, through education and guidance. I pride myself in being a principled Chiropractor by utilizing a holistic approach to my patient care, which includes not only caring for physical health and well-being, but also emotional and spiritual. I help patient’s achieve this by providing gentle, safe, and focused Chiropractic adjustments.
When I am not serving my patients and the community, I enjoy hunting, fishing, playing the guitar, and spending time with my family and loved ones. I look forward to joining the team at Maverick Chiropractic in Forney to help serve my community in providing long lasting Chiropractic care.
Dr. Elaine Barnett
Hi there - I’m Dr. Elaine Barnett. Professionally, I have close to 20 years in the counseling field. I am a Dallas native and received a BA in Business Management, an MA in Counseling from Texas A&M Commerce, and a doctorate in Counseling from Cornerstone University. Specialties include sexual abuse and working with children. If you are in need of a safe, non-judgmental environment to begin the healing process, I can help. I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families, facing various issues such as sexual abuse, marital and family conflict, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and childhood issues. Making changes can be difficult, but you do not have to go about this alone. I consider individuals to be the experts of their own lives. Taking the step toward establishing a therapeutic relationship is a very personal matter, and it is important to find the right fit for you.
In addition to counseling, I do Neurofeedback. My passion is working with children and helping them to reach their optimum potential. It is my opinion that Neurofeedback should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. Neurofeedback provides a unique drugless approach to treating Brainwave Dsyregulation. Check out my website at braincoretx.com for more information.
I began researching Neurofeedback out of my own personal experience. I was researching alternatives, for my son, who had been diagnosed with Attention Deficient Disorder, in addition to my own experience with a brain tumor. I was intrigued by Neurofeedback and the possibility of a drugless approach to address these issues.
Erica Rose, LMT
Hi, my name is Erica Rose. I am a massage therapist at our Forney location, personal trainer, fitness instructor, owner of Fit Movement and, most importantly, mom to three amazing children. I grew up in Kaufman, but I moved to Forney in 2006. I worked at a local gym for over 10 years as a class instructor and as a personal trainer. My career in the fitness industry is what led me to massage therapy. The amount of overuse injuries that I saw plus realizing the importance of myofascial release made me want to learn more. The desire to be able to really help someone live pain-free and have proper range of motion led me to massage therapy school. I use a variety of modalities to ensure the best outcome for the client. Whether doing Swedish (relaxing) or deep tissue, I take great pride and fulfillment in knowing that I am helping every person physically, mentally, and emotionally through massage.
When I’m not teaching fitness classes or massaging, I am busy being a mom. I love coaching my daughter’s cheer squad as well as watching my children compete/perform in their various sports and activities. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to church, working out, and dancing. I know how busy our lives can be, but I also understand how important it is to slow down and take care of ourselves. I look forward to helping you achieve your desired outcome through massage.

Hi, my name is Mandi Farmer! I am a floating CA, and I work where needed. I grew up in Arlington, TX. I met and fell in love with my husband, Dr. Josh, while attending Texas Tech University. I graduated from Texas Tech in 2006. Josh and I were married the following year, while he was in the middle of Chiropractic school in Dallas, Texas. After Josh graduated from Parker, we decided to be adventurous and move to Australia, where we lived for seven years! We had our first two children while living in Australia. In July 2016 Josh and I decided to move back to the States to be closer to family. We took a three month road trip with our 5 and 4 year old in a (very) small camper around the USA, covering over 11,000 miles (and I'd just found out we were pregnant with our 3rd!). After much thought and prayer, we settled in Forney, TX at the beginning of 2017. We love Forney's small-town feel and the friendly people!
In 2007 I suffered from weekly migraines. After Josh started his clinic classes at Parker, I began to get regularly adjusted for the first time in my life. Slowly, my migraines started to disappear! I also noticed many other benefits from regular Chiropractic care. I love working in the office because I get to hear SO many stories of the body healing itself after adjustments and people getting their lives back. I believe regular Chiropractic care is essential for the body to function the way God intended.
I am a photographer. I enjoy exercising (if friends are present), movie nights, watching Fixer Upper, spending time with my family, anything crafty, essential oils, getting involved at church, serving others, and trips to the beach. I love creating healthy meals for my family and aspire to have my own "clean" café one day! I enjoy working in the practice and connecting with our patients. I am not in the office much as I am spending time with our newest addition, Kolbie.

We love our little town and I look forward to serving you as the Chiropractors Assistant at Maverick Chiropractic Wills Point.
Hello everyone! My name is Tenisha Perry. I am a CA at Maverick Chiropractic in Forney. My husband, son & I were blessed to move to Terrell in 2017 from Richardson & I must say, it reminds me of my hometown of Longview. I enjoy reading the bible & Christian fiction, participating at church & family fun nights at home with my men. As CA I look forward to getting to know the people of Forney, Wills Point & Terrell.
Hi, my name is Cindy Randolph and I’m a CA in the Wills Point office. My husband, two daughters and I moved to the Grand Saline area in 2005, after making the decision to escape the big city of Dallas and raise our kids in a small-town community. I love spending time with my family which now includes a son-in-law, one granddaughter and another granddaughter on the way. I’ve always enjoyed health, fitness and finding natural ways to take better care of my family and myself. In my spare time you can find me taking part in a yoga class, digging in my garden at the house or curled up on my sofa digging into a good novel. I’m excited about the opportunity of serving my neighbors in the East Texas community.
