Drs. Chae and Monya Tracy crossed paths at Parker University, a chiropractic college in Dallas. After graduation, Dr. Chae, hailing from Oklahoma, had a longing to return home, while Monya, a West Texas native, envisioned a life in San Angelo. To find common ground, they considered Austin, where Monya had family ties. Both underwent additional training in upper cervical chiropractic care in Austin, shaping their decision on where to settle, serve, and raise a family. Although many towns were considered, fate brought them together in charming Dripping Springs.
They immediately immersed themselves in the community. Chae became involved in the Lions Club, Ducks Unlimited and the Chamber of Commerce. While Monya devoted her philanthropic efforts toward the Rotary Club and “The Springs” which is now the YMCA.
They are also continually involved in numerous initiatives, from Founder’s Day to supporting athletes and students. They are most passionate about Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center, a large-scale philanthropy that transforms the lives of kids with life-changing chiropractic treatments. Starting Family First Chiropractic in 2005 with a mission to serve families, they have since expanded to Curis Functional Health, adding holistic services. They aimed to go beyond chiropractic bringing in Dr. Tracy’s sister, Dr. Breca Tracy, Ph.D., to run REGENERATE alongside Curis making the trio of partners a comprehensive healthcare center for alternative and holistic care.
Balancing between their two practices, involvement in boards and committees, and their children’s activities, the Tracy family remains actively immersed in our community. Despite witnessing significant growth over the past nineteen years, they appreciate the enduring small-town charm and maintain a strong commitment to helping, loving and serving others in the wonderful community we fondly call Drip.
