Growing up in a small Midwestern town just East of the Mississippi, I was first introduced to Chiropractic care at the age of 16 after my vehicle was T-boned on the driver’s side throwing us into oncoming traffic. After going the traditional medical route and a few months of physical therapy I was introduced to a local Chiropractor receiving complete relief in just a couple months.
While attending Logan College of Chiropractic, I founded the Logan College Wellness Club and was later mentored by an Upper Cervical doctor in Des Peres, MO who introduced me to the history of Chiropractic and the concept of Upper Cervical Chiropractic care….Scientifically, it made sense due to the high concentration of mechanoreceptors in the upper area of the spine. During that time, I met up with a few individuals at Dynamic Essentials in Marietta, Georgia who spoke about a “Lasting Purpose” and a “Give, Love, Serve” mentality.
After learning more of how Chiropractic came to be and the plethora of techniques out there, I decided to transfer to Life Chiropractic College West in California in order to be the most highly trained Chiropractor possible.
In order to best support our profession in protecting the foundational principles that Chiropractic was founded on – no drugs or surgery, in 2018 as a member of the California Chiropractor’s Association I teamed up with Chiropractors from all over the state to lobby for AB 888, which would require stricter regulations from medical doctors in prescribing an opioid for the course of a treatment. This bill also required that medical doctors recommend adjunct methods of treatment such as acupuncture and Chiropractic care. In 2019, I became the President for the International Chiropractor’s Association (Life West Chapter) to support this mission and have participated in various private healing retreats in Northern California.
I am stoked to be back in my hometown and ready to share what I have personally found as life-enhancing healthcare such as regular Chiropractic adjustments paired with high-quality, fluoride-free H20 from the Tyent Water Ionizer, Doterra Essential Oils, the Richway Biomat and Standard Process products.
