FSBDC client of the Month

“Starting my own business has been both the scariest and most exciting thing I have ever done.  Tracy Nazzaro and the SBDC provided priceless support and training from the very beginning when all I had was an idea for my practice to when we were able to open our door to the public.  Anyone looking to take the next step in opening their business should use all the FSBDC has to offer.”

Dr. Kevin Lin was interested in the field of medicine and healing from a young age.  After graduating from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, with dual bachelor degrees in Pre-Med and Art History he turned his gaze toward the chiropractic profession. Dr. Lin was looking for a treatment protocol that would provide long-lasting and life-changing results, which is what he found by using the Neural Restorative Method taught at the Life University in Atlanta, Georgia.
After graduating from Life University in 2009, Dr. Lin practiced with several seasoned chiropractic professionals before deciding to open his own practice on Amelia Island. While Dr. Lin is very confident in his healing skills, he sought guidance from the FSBDC at UNF to assist him with the business planning process to ensure that his practice reaches its maximum potential.   One-on-one meetings with his FSBDC consultant, Tracy Nazzaro, began a full nine months before the practice opened.  FSBDC consultation sessions included: site selection, loan package preparation assistance, brand development, market research, financial projections, marketing strategy and staffing needs.
On May 5, 2014, the FSBDC and the entire Amelia Island community celebrated the grand opening of Precision Chiropractic on 14th Street in Fernandina Beach.  The state-of-the-art facility offers technologically advanced patient care in a comfortable environment.  Each Neural Restoration Chiropractic examination includes: onsite radiographs, neural structural spinal analysis, neural system analysis, neural shift detection and orthopedic and neurological tests.  Patient intake has been brisk, and Dr. Lin is already looking at opportunities to expand the practice and the FSBDC will be with him every step of the way. Dr. Lin’s business is doing so well that it was recognized by the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach–Yulee Chamber of Commerce as the Small Business of the Year at their annual awards banquet.
Dr. Lin has five years of training in Neural Restoration Chiropractic through the Knee Chest Upper Cervical Protocol. He is currently an active instructor with the KCUCS program and has led three mission trips the past three years to Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.  He is a very active member in the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce and is on the board of directors for the Amelia Island Montessori School.
