From a young age, I knew I wanted to heal people, it just took a couple of tries to get the right shoe to fit. Originally I was inspired by a Physical Therapist I met who worked so hard with a US Veteran to get him back on his feet, I thought perhaps that was the path for me. What I found was that shoe really didn’t fit well. Next, the arena of becoming a medical doctor appealed to me. After volunteering in a local Emergency Room, I quickly realized I didn’t want to be part of the medical world that just prescribed medication and hoped for a cure. I felt in my gut that there had to be a different way. One day on a drive with my mom, I asked her what she thought about chiropractic. She surprised me by answering that she had been adjusted by a chiropractor as a child. This was news to be as I knew very little about chiropractic and had never had an adjustment in my life. I was given the opportunity to shadow a local Chiropractor in my home town and was thrilled after I watched her adjust an older lady on my first day. The patient came in with chronic pain and just a dim sadness in her eyes. After the adjustment not only did she stand up straighter, she was moving without pain and restriction and she even had a twinkle back in her eyes. I was sold, if I could make that big of a change in someone’s life with just a few maneuvers and the patient could see those kind of results, I knew this was my path.
