Ryan Chapman

EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN

“I AM INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEDICATE THIS NEXT CHAPTER OF MY LIFE TO AN INDUSTRY, AND AN EXPERIENCE, THAT HELPED SHAPE ME AND MY VIEW OF THE WORLD.”
– RYAN CHAPMAN

When Ryan Chapman became majority owner and CEO of Integrative Life Center in 2018, it felt more like a calling than a business opportunity. At 18, Ryan was hired as a cashier, earning $6.75 per hour at Premier Parking in Nashville. He became owner within four years. When he sold it at 34, Premier Parking had grown into one of the largest parking providers in the country, managing over 500 locations and employing some 2,000 team members. Along the way, Ryan earned a BA and an MBA by attending classes on nights and weekends.

While Ryan’s career has focused on business, the world of addiction and recovery has been a big part of his journey.

Born in Decatur, Illinois, Ryan moved with his family to Nashville. As a child, he found comfort and success in baseball. When his baseball career ended in high school, Ryan’s drug use escalated. By age 18, a variety of circumstances created an emptiness in his soul that he attempted to fill with drugs and risky behavior. Ryan spent 28-life changing days at a residential impatient treatment center, followed by several months at sober living facilities.

Ryan is a believer in the healing power of the holistic and integrative treatment practices that are the heart of ILC. He believes that everyone can find—and love—their true selves. Holding the space for this to happen is the mission of ILC.

Ryan and his wife Betsy are the parents of two young children, Vivian and Bo, and are members of West End Community Church. Ryan is the Tennessee state chair of Young Presidents Organization and is involved with Barefoot Republic, a Christian summer camp for kids from diverse economic backgrounds. As well, he is active in UpRise, a career development program for Nashville adults, and is on the board of Edna Adan Maternity Hospital Foundation.

Ryan moved into the role of Executive Chairman of Integrative Life Center in February 2021.

BODYWORKER/MASSAGE THERAPIST

“THE LEARNING GOES BOTH WAYS. I’VE GAINED SO MUCH FROM MY WORK WITH ILC CLIENTS. IF IT WERE NOT FOR WHAT THEY TEACH ME, I WOULD NOT BE AS FAR ALONG IN MY OWN SELF-AWARENESS JOURNEY.” – DANIELLE LATHAM

The body provides an entryway to the spirit. Bodyworker Danielle Latham helps ILC clients heal by identifying those points of access through massage and other approaches.

An experienced practitioner, Danielle was trained at the MountainHeart School of Bodywork in Colorado.

Since Integrative Life Center opened in 2010, Danielle has been sharing her healing skills with our clients.

For individuals seeking to rebalance as a result of trauma, depression, eating disorders and other conditions, the process of rediscovering their authentic selves can be facilitated by moving outside the mind and concentrating on the energy within the body. Harnessing that energy can help release the burden of emotional trauma. Many people suffering from addiction have lost the ability to feel, and Danielle works with them to restore the mind-body-spirit connection.
