~What Brought Me To Chiropractic ~
"Looking back now, I was being pointed in the direction of this career my entire life. I grew up in a healthy seashore environment that taught me to love outdoor activities and competition. Though my family used conventional medicine when necessary, my parents thought playing outside was better medicine than anything that could be prescribed. They signed me up to play soccer as soon as I learned to walk and I continued to play through my junior in college.
I suffered injuries in my college career that altered the course of my life, both physically and professionally. I am grateful for that experience because it encouraged me to further pursue a career in healthcare and sports rehabilitation. I’ve spent many years since then dedicating my life to learning so I could offer that clinical support to others to heal and prevent injuries.
Using the knowledge that I’ve acquired, I want to help others enjoy and appreciate the amazing things their bodies can do in hopes that they’ll take the necessary measures to preserve their health and the health of their loved ones."
