Meet The Team
Dr. Erin Zovath, D.C.
ChiropractorPalmer College of Chiropractic
Dr. Erin Zovath graduated with a bachelors degree in Biomedical Science from the University of South Florida and continued on to receive her doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Upon graduating from Palmer, she worked in Celebration, FL; receiving advanced training from the largest health clinics in the country in chiropractic spinal correction, nutrition, exercise and toxicity.
Dr. Erin has overseen the care of patients of all ages, from mere minutes old to 102 years of age! She truly understands the meaning of lifelong health and is deeply committed to helping each patient achieve it. She teaches a variety of chiropractic health workshops to groups ranging from large corporations to local businesses, churches, schools and other organizations.
Born and raised in Appleton, WI, Dr. Erin moved to Bradenton, FL during high school. She has danced her entire life, competing nationally and professionally for the Tampa Bay Storm. She met her husband, Zach, while in high school and had their son, Jude, shortly before receiving her Doctorate Degree. As her passion to help others through the 5 Essentials of MaxLiving has expanded, her family has also grown to include their son, Ezra, daughter, Moxie, and twins, Archer and Miles.
This being the first time in two centuries the current generation of children in America may have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, Dr. Erin and her husband have made it their mission to change the way the community views and manages their chiropractic health, both physically and mentally across all generations.
Owner & Fitness Coach
Zach was born and raised in Sarasota, FL and is the eldest of three boys.
He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exceptional Education from the University of Central Florida in 2010 and continued on to receive his master’s degree from the college of Education and Human Performance at the University of Central Florida in 2012. While completing his master’s degree, he worked for several charter schools developing adaptive physical education curriculum for children with special needs.
In 2013, his career path changed and he became business owner of Bold City Health alongside his wife, Dr. Erin Zovath. Using his education, teaching experience, and training he gained from also working in the health and fitness industry, Zach is able to easily push and coach our Bold City Health patients in their fitness journeys. Zach learned he has a unique ability to push others to accomplish things they didn’t think was a reality.
An avid reader, Zach reads several books every month from health & fitness, to personal development, to fiction. Also an avid runner, Zach competed in the Daytona 100 in December 2022, reaching over 70 miles before a stress fracture in his foot forced him to drop out of the race. Although hindered from his goal of finishing 100 miles in 24hrs, Zach plans on competing in 2023 and completing the full 100 miles. Not one to shy away from difficult things, Zach is always challenging his body, mind & spirit to do things that are uncomfortable.
Zach enjoys being a full time dad with five kids at home, and sets a health-based example for the generation he’s raising and the one that comes after.
Dr. April Swanstrom
ChiropractorPalmer College of Chiropractic
Born in Jacksonville, FL, Dr. April grew up running track, cross-country, swimming, & cycling. She was also a lifeguard for the city of Jacksonville.
Dr. April bleeds orange and blue, gaining her bachelor’s in health science from the University of Florida in 2012. GO GATORS! After shadowing a family based chiropractor, Dr. April decided that she would pursue chiropractic and obtained her degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2015. She’s also certified in Myofascial Release Technique, as well as Webster’s Technique, and specializes in Pediatric & Perinatal care.
In 2016, Dr. April was hired onto the Bold City Health team when Dr. Erin was pregnant with her second child, Ezra. She went from adjusting her normal client base of 20 patients per week to our almost 500 patients per week.
Something unique about Dr. April is that she is an identical twin, so you may have seen her sister, Ashley, in office (it confuses everyone!). Since 2012, Dr. April has been heavily involved in the Cross Fit community and has done local competitions. Her free time is mostly spent with her puppy, Grizzly, and family.
Dr. April’s favorite part of being a chiropractor is being able to ground people in having full confidence that their bodies were made perfectly and created to heal, and she enjoys adjusting babies and supporting mothers through pregnancy and postpartum.
Dr. Logan Emholtz
Dr. Logan grew up in River Falls, Wisconsin, where he and his wife, Breanna, met in kindergarten, began dating during high school, and married in 2019. Four months ago, he and Breanna welcomed their first child, Hayes, into their family and he has been a huge blessing to their lives.
Growing up being very athletic & involved in multiple sports, Logan played football for Carleton College in Minnesota, where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Biology, and continued his education, pursuing his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Life University in Atlanta, GA. He joined the Bold City Health team in October of 2022 during his preceptorship, and became an official associate doctor in April 2023.
Something very unique about Dr. Logan was that he grew up being adjusted weekly since birth because his grandpa, Gerald Emholtz, was also a chiropractor! Logan remembers his grandpa fondly and regards him as the inspiration that led him to switch career paths, deciding to go from studying to be a medical doctor to a doctor of chiropractic.
Working with kids and families is Dr. Logan’s favorite part of being a chiropractor, because the biggest impact is changing the health of generations for the better.

And in December of 2022, Dr. Jordan graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic. During his preceptorship, he was specially trained by the nation’s top doctors in spinal correction, and joined the Bold City Health team in January 2023.

Raised in the small town of Gilman, WI (Pop. 410), Sami spent her time growing up playing softball & volleyball. From working as a server at a local restaurant to interning at a Horse Camp for special needs children, to being a flight attendant, Sami has never had trouble filling her time.
After graduating in 2015 with a degree in psychology, she moved to Jacksonville with her dog, Kiara. Initially, Sami’s goal was to attend grad school for a degree in physical therapy; thankfully, that goal was never fully realized. She now feels extremely fulfilled leading the team at Bold City Health as Office Manager since being welcomed onto the team in October 2020. Originally, Sami came into Bold City Health as a patient. After years of debilitating migraines, Sami was placed on a spinal corrective plan and after one month of adjustments she was migraine free. She loves telling new and current patients about the power of chiropractic.
Sami is a serial opportunist and enjoys exploring her own entrepreneurial inclinations and hopes to own her own business one day. If forced, she will admit she knows far too much about elephants. In her free time, Sami enjoys relaxing with her boyfriend, Marc, playing with dogs, Kiara & Starr, reading, and planning her future travels abroad. Currently, Sami is participating in one new physical challenge a month, one challenge she completed was competing in a USA powerlifting competition.
Events and Outreach Liaison
Peggy has lived her adult life in Jacksonville, FL, but is originally from Kentucky. She is the second oldest of three siblings. Peggy met her husband & best friend, Scott, during high school and married him in 1987. In 1989 they welcomed their first child, Scott Jr., and four years later their second child, Katie.
Peggy spent years struggling with health issues and was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and Fibromyalgia. Desperate to not become a human pin cushion at Mayo Clinic, Peggy sought relief from the brain fog and painful irritation she lived with by taking 50 different supplements a day to feel some semblance of normalcy. A friend of her daughters recommended she go see her chiropractor at Bold City Health. So, in June of 2015, Peggy became a patient and began getting adjusted consistently and following the 5 Essentials. She overhauled her health in such a large way she now no longer lives with the diseases doctors said she could never recover from. With her hope and health restored, she was able to return to activities she loved, like camping with her family, and bike rides on the beach.
Peggy joined the Bold City Health team in December of 2015, and now helps with outreach & events. Peggy passionately shares the word about the body’s God-given ability to heal, and helps others overcome their limiting beliefs.
In her free time, Peggy can be found reading the bible daily and has even taken Hebrew classes to dig deeper into God’s word. She also loves riding motorcycles with her husband, as well as serving her church’s congregation and leading small groups throughout the week.

Patient Care Coordinator
Born and partially raised in Jacksonville, FL, Lacey moved to various cities her whole life. From Fargo, ND to Camarillo, CA, she met and gained relationships with various types of people in all walks of life, which grew her passion of caring for others. That passion continued to grow while working as a dietary aid at a senior living community where she learned how impactful a good relationship is with a patient. That understanding aided her journey when she struggled with pre-diabetes and weight gain.
She surrounded herself with her large family of seven, who pushed her past her believed limits, finding herself and God again. She gained her perspective that health is obtained by not only perseverance but having a good support system and strong faith. Happily defeating her health struggles and losing 75lbs, she now has the ability and drive to experience new hobbies she’s always been interested in such as golfing, vlogging and running. She has gained the desire to become others’ support system, championing them during whatever journey they are facing.
Lacey joined the Bold City Health team in 2023 to continue her passions and health journey. She has welcomed the 5 Essentials into her life to be the best version of herself and help others become the best version of themselves.
