Dr. Kevin Schmidt is a local small business owner, doctor, and lifelong conservative who will bring future-facing ideas to protect our families and grow local jobs.
Dr. Schmidt has been serving the Freeburg and Millstadt community as a chiropractor for the last 16 years. He is the owner and operator of Schmidt Chiropractic—he opened his first location in Millstadt in October 2006 and opened his second office in Freeburg in September 2015.
Over the past several years, he implemented a cost saving, fiscally conservative, streamlined, and consolidated business plan to allow him to offer the most affordable services he could. As a one-man owner and operator, he was able to make significant cuts to business expenses so he could pass on saving to his patients. Dr. Schmidt finds every possible way to lower and maintain affordable costs that can be shared with his patients, and he will do the same in Springfield. As someone who has successfully run a fiscally conservative business, he’ll bring the same mindset of cutting costs and lowering taxes so saving can be passed onto our overtaxed Illinoisans.
Dr. Schmidt was born and raised in Belleville, where he attended Union K-6, then West Junior High, before graduating from Belleville West High School. He knows the struggles this area has experienced over the last few decades because he’s spent his entire life here. His dad worked for the local Illinois Department of Transportation and his mother ran an in-home day care service.
He attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and received his Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Science in Human Biology at Logan University in Chesterfield, MO.
Dr. Schmidt likes to be very involved in the community either by volunteering his time in local organizations or by donating money to local causes. He is the past president of the Millstadt Jaycees and Optimist Club. He is a past board member of the Millstadt Chamber of Commerce and a current member of the NRA. He is a mason and Shriner. Dr. Schmidt also goes into surrounding communities to businesses to give free lunches with educational lectures and performs free spinal screenings at local events.
Dr. Kevin Schmidt lives in Millstadt with his wife of 13 years, Laura, and their two sons, Luke and Dean. Laura runs a family business with her brother named Custom Marble in Millstadt.
