Dr Bagby was born in Des Plaines and raised primarily in northern Illinois. He earned an Associate of Arts from College of Du Page and then a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from Illinois State University before going on to earn both his Doctor of Chiropractic and Acupuncture certificate from National College of Chiropractic (now known as National University of Health Sciences). After graduation he practiced at Des Plaines Chiropractic Center until 2 floods prompted a search for higher ground and a new location known as The Wellness Group in Arlington Heights in 2014. In April 2016 he helped a friend retire when he purchased Acupuncture Chiropractic Clinic in Arlington Heights, combined the two practices and hopefully moved for the last time.
