Finding Purpose in Chiropractic

At a young age, I was able to determine two things. First, I wanted to pursue a career in the field of medicine, and secondly, I felt great satisfaction in being able to help others. Between my time spent volunteering at Camp Friendship of the Black Hills of South Dakota and collecting/delivering presents for the Toys for Tots program, I was able to experience the joy that comes with positively influencing the lives of others.

I believe the human body has an amazing ability to self-heal when properly aligned.

.By high school, I was convinced that I wanted to be a doctor, but was unsure as to what discipline to pursue. By college, I had narrowed my choices to orthopedics or chiropractic. Being raised in a chiropractic household, I was quite familiar with chiropractic. I was not as familiar with or fully understood orthopedics. Being such, I sought out the opinion of a very close family friend who was an orthopedic surgeon. He discouraged me from orthopedics because he felt the profession has been destroyed by politics, money and general misguiding of allopathic medicine. I chose chiropractic.

I completed my undergraduate coursework in pre-medicine at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming and obtained my Doctorate of Chiropractic from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles, California.

A Chiropractic Lifestyle

Looking back upon my childhood, I realize the positive effects of living a ‘chiropractic lifestyle’. I was rarely ill, never vaccinated, took very few antibiotics or drug therapy, maintained a clean and healthy diet and received regular adjustments. I was able to achieve a full, symptom-less recovery from a debilitating car accident and numerous sports injuries complete with broken bones, nerve damage, and ruptured discs. Such instances could have ended one’s active lifestyle, but I feel having an uncompromisable immune system and strong body directly aided in my recovery.

I believe in living a clean lifestyle, devoid of unnecessary toxins. I believe the human body has an amazing ability to self-heal when properly aligned. I believe that the Power that made the body, heals the body and it happens no other way. For this reason, I feel my destiny was to pursue this career.
