Meet Our Staff


Sharon Fraum | Business Administrator

I have been married to Dr. Brad Fraum for 35 years. Together we have one son, Collin, one daughter, Blake who is married to Jimmy Schmid. Blake and Jimmy have one child, JP, who is our first grandchild.

I have been very involved with chiropractic through the years, as I have worked in Fraum Chiropractic Life Center for 25 years. My job is the business administrator, however, I have held many positions at Fraum Chiropractic Life Center. I enjoy seeing patients find answers to their health situations with chiropractic. It is also amazing to see how healthy the chirobabies are! I love children.

I was born and grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. I attended Georgia Southern University where I studied Sociology. The family enjoys the beach, boating, and traveling to other beaches. I also enjoy traveling to new places to explore.

I have two cats, Skye King and Petunia, now and have had cats most of my life. I enjoy living on Hilton Head Island with so many beautiful sights around us.


Maggie Defazio | Front Desk Coordinator

My name is Maggie and I am the Front Desk Coordinator. I was born in Poland and came to the United States at 16 years of age. I finished both high school and college in New York City, while working in the fashion industry. I got married in 1977 and we moved to upstate New York.

At one point in my life I suffered serious back problems and needed a chiropractor. As a patient, I found out how important and beneficial a doctor of chiropractic is to your overall health.

I have been working in the chiropractic field for over 35 years and therefore know firsthand how important these doctors are for people to function and live their lives pain and drug-free.


Bree Shepard | Office Manager and Stem Cell Liaison

Hello! My name is Bree and I am the newest member to join the team, as the Chiropractic Assistant for Dr. Fraum, Dr. McGinnis and Dr. Morris. You can find me in all areas of the office, particularly performing therapies (spinal decompression, cold laser, muscle stimulation, traction, and HakoMed therapy for Peripheral Neuropathy) with patients. I also develop x-rays, verify insurance, analyze metabolic data with laboratory bloodwork for Dr. Morris, and many more tasks within the office.

My favorite part of the workday is getting adjusted by one of the highly decorated chiropractors in the office! I came to work at Fraum Chiropractic Life Center with my love of health wellness and desire to work with patients. In my younger adult years, I was involved in a car accident and needed chiropractic care throughout my entire pregnancy of my now teenage son. I was inspired throughout the entire process and decided to enter the healthcare field.

I was born in Rhode Island and moved to Hilton Head Island when I was three years old with my twin sister and family. I recently graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Healthcare Management from South University in Savannah, GA. In my free time, I like to spend it with my teenage son and enjoy outdoor activities within the Lowcountry. I also enjoy writing, painting, medical research, traveling, fishing, boating, and music festivals.


Priscilla Schorr | Insurance Billing Manager

Hello, my name is Priscilla. I am a local girl. I was born in Beaufort, South Carolina and I was raised between Hilton Head Island and Bluffton. I have two amazing daughters, and they are my world. In my free time I love going to the beach and soaking up the sun or being a cheer coach with my oldest daughter.

When I was about 24 years old, I suffered with pain in my lower back, I tried everything from muscle relaxamts to physical therapy but nothing helped. Finally when I was about to give up, I decided to try a chiropractor, and I have to say, it was amazing to watch and feel my body go back to normal.

I am excited about being a part of this team, not only because of the wonderful staff and skillful doctors, but also to be able to witness each patient’s healing process. It is exciting to watch how different each doctor is and what you can learn from each one of them.

Elyse Riendeau

Elyse Riendeau | Chiropractic Assistant

Hello, my name is Elyse! After I moved away from my hometown of Marietta, Ohio, I became a resident of Hilton Head Island in December 2017. I graduated from Marietta College with a BS in Health sciences and two minors, one in English and one in Psychology. Hilton Head is a beautiful place and I am happy to live here.

The patients and the act of helping to ease other people’s pain is why I love working at Fraum Chiropractic Life Center. I enjoy getting to know other people and listening to what they have to say. Overall, making other people comfortable feels meaningful to me.

In my free time, I enjoy reading books, especially those that involve fantasy and adventure. I am also trying to learn French and I adore playing with my cat, Rosemary.
