HOW I BECAME A DOCTOR:
I started my career in conservative health as a massage therapist in 2005. After a car accident in 2008 I had daily headaches, neck pain, and arm pain that made work nearly unbearable. After just a couple weeks of chiropractic care I had almost no pain! I also noticed that health concerns I struggled with since childhood were improving and I had more energy than I had had in years! I started volunteering at a chiropractic office to learn more about the science of chiropractic and how this method of non-invasive care could change lives. I was immediately hooked, I knew there would never be a profession I would be more passionate about than chiropractic! I competed the 5 years of schooling in 3 years and 3 months. I have been honored to serve the Rochester community since the spring of 2013.
WHAT I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT:
As a wife and mother myself I have a particular interest in women’s health and pediatric chiropractic care. I had the honor to give prenatal and pregnancy care on a medical missions in Ghana, West Africa for six weeks as well as a short term trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. While in school I was an active member of the Pediatric Chiropractic Club and the President of the Christian Chiropractor Club. I’ve been truly blessed to serve the Rochester community at various outreaches, clinics and veterans hospitals.
WHEN I’M NOT CHANGING LIVES THROUGH EFFECTIVE NON-INVASIVE CARE:
I grew up on a dairy farm south of Henrietta, and learned early the love of the outdoors and the value of hard work. I enjoy gardening, painting, crocheting, yarn spinning, and just about anything creative. When the weather permits I love to go kayaking, hiking, and geocaching with my husband, sons, and two dogs.
