Why did you become a chiropractor? I knew I wanted to help people, and be involved in enhancing other peoples lives. I grew up in a household with an older brother that was a ‘druggie’ and my Mom was up and down with her weight using diet medications. I became afraid of drugs and interested in other health care methods. I was clear that I didn’t like blood and surgery. At the age of 19, when I was researching careers, I found out about Chiropractic and what they did. I tried Chiropractic for a neck injury and felt great relief. I also saw how much pleasure the doctors I met seemed to get from there careers, I wanted to be a part of this system of health care. I have learned that the art of good medicine is ‘fine tuning’ and working together with clients.
What is your mission or higher purpose in life? I want to provide the finest rehabilitation and performance methods, integrated into Chiropractic care to enhance clients lives. I love to see people enjoy and live to do the activities they want to do. I feel good guiding and helping clients get out of chronic pain, and improve there personal lives and relationships. People never know how healthy they can become until they try nutritional approaches and corrective exercise therapy.
What are the things you love most (or inspire you most) about being a chiropractor?
Our patients are us, just in pain, heavier and out of shape. But they definitely want what we have, methods to help them get out of pain. I love teaching functional exercise training and nutritional therapy to other doctors and my clients. I know I make a difference in reducing injuries and improving performance, whether it is in sports, relationships and attitudes, or clients work life. I am fortunate that I get to teach postgraduate courses in corrective exercise therapy, diet, and nutrition to other doctors around the Country.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
