When I was fifteen I fell down the stairs at home.

I bounced up and didn’t think much of it until the headaches started a few months later. They were debilitating. I couldn’t move when they would strike. Nothing seemed to help them. I was having trouble concentrating in school, I stopped playing sport, gained weight and no one seemed to know what were causing the headaches. After countless tests, MRI’s, and CAT scans I was told nothing was wrong. Apparently something was very wrong. My parents heard from a friend I should try a chiropractor. “A chiropractor?” I started getting better and after a few weeks I stopped getting the headaches all together. I was thankful to have my life back again.

Ever since I can remember I loved science. Yes, I was one of THOSE kids. Naturally, I thought I would become a medical doctor. Well, I became a doctor but never dreamed I would have become a chiropractor at the time. During college I did extensive research in the area of Brain Physiology & Anatomy. I eventually started teaching about the brain and the nervous system. After college I went to work at USC Medical School in the Department of Neurology doing research on Multiple Sclerosis. While working at USC I was trying to decide, do I want to go to medical school or do I want to continue doing research? I wasn’t sure. I was looking for a way to combine my love for the nervous system and teach people about their body, nutrition and how to live a healthier life.

Education

It finally hit me when talking to my chiropractor that chiropractic did all of that and more. I enrolled at Cleveland Chiropractic College. During my time there my courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care. It really was everything I wanted. I graduated Summa Cum Laude.

I continued my education after chiropractic college specializing in the Activator Technique in which I am advanced certified.

I opened my own practice in 2005. I make it my priority to make every patient feel comfortable. I remember the concerns I had when I first went to my chiropractor. So HealthWorks makes it a point to explain everything in advance and answer all your questions. I love what I do and love those days when patients “get it.”

I have also become an avid cyclist participating in numerous centuries and I just completed the AIDS ride in 2010.

HealthWorks uses a “whole person approach” when taking care of patients. By combining the very best hands-on-technique, state of the art physiotherapy procedures and providing the newest and best natural vitamins and mineral supplements on the market today. Come join our family. I look forward to meeting you.
