Dr. Kent has over twenty years of experience in the healthcare field.  She began working as a clinical nutritionist upon completing her bachelor’s degree in 1995. After furthering her education with a M.S. degree in Health and Human Performance, she worked as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist in cardiac rehabilitation and pulmonary wellness at Orlando Health.  After many years of caring for terminally ill patients, she developed a strong interest in alternative and preventative medicine. ​At the age of forty, Dr. Kent chose to begin her journey of becoming a chiropractic physician.  As a student intern, she earned the Clinical Excellence Service Award from her Clinical Mentor, and upon graduation in 2016, opened Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Care

Dr. Kent’s approach to patient care focuses on maximizing the phases of healing: pain relief, correction, strengthening and wellness & prevention. Her approach not only manages pain and rehabilitates injuries, but ultimately addresses other underlying dysfunctions and illnesses. Dr. Cheryl strives to individualize each patient's treatment plan so that they may achieve their full recovery potential. She treats each patient with the practice motto in mind: Creating Balance. Living Well.

Dr. Kent has been a Florida resident since 1980 and has lived in Central Florida since 2007. She is the proud wife of a retired City of Orlando Fire Fighter, and mother of three beautiful children, ages 17, 21 & 25. In her spare time, you can find her watching FSU Football, golfing, running, weight training or playing at a local dog park with her Boxers, Bentley and Nala.  She has competed as an IFBB professional athlete since 2010.  She is a  6x IFBB Professional Figure Champion.
