Dr. Xidos had originally intended to go to medical school, but then due to her own back problems discovered chiropractic in her early twenties. She has an older brother who is an ER doctor and he encouraged her to become a chiropractor, being an advocate for chiropractic himself. Through his support and encouragement she took a year to research her options and realized that chiropractic was the best choice for her. She applied to the best school for chiropractic, Palmer College in Iowa, and was accepted with a scholarship.
Originally from Newfoundland, Canada, being one of a rare breed of Greek Newfies, Dr. Xidos fell in love with the Northwest while doing a preceptorship in Bothell, WA and has remained ever since.

She ventured out on her own at Atlas Chiropractic Health Center in the diverse neighborhood of Capitol Hill in June of 2005.
