Chiropractor @ Discover Chiropractic (Owner)

I help people live healthy and happy lives through chiropractic care. It involves working one on one with people's unique needs to help them attain a healthier spine and state of being. We perform consultations, exams and x-rays in most cases. Review people's findings and provide care. Adjustments, along with stretches and exercises are given to help people achieve their goals.

How I Got Here

Show
Undergraduate Degree(s): Psychology
Graduate degree(s): Doctor of Chiropractic
Favorite class(es): History of Psychology
Changing majors:

Changing from a Biology/ Chemistry (double major) to Psychology was one of the best decisions I ever made. I had horrible grades in Chemistry up to my junior year when i visited an academic advisor who told me that I didn't have to stick to that major if there was something else I was interested in. He pointed out to me that I had a 4.0 GPA in Psychology and that maybe Psychology was a better fit for me. It worked out great.

Moving from college to career:

I worked in another doctors' chiropractic office for a few months right after my graduate education. Then I realized I was ready to go my own and tread my own path.

Career influences:

Meeting successful chiropractors and seeing first hand the difference they can make on their communities is what drove me to this profession.

The Ups and Downs

Show

I started my own clinic, which involved some risk. There is stress involved when running your own business and bearing the sole responsibility for the success of the practice. But with those risks comes rewards. When we positively affect someone's life it makes all the work worthwhile. Flexible hours, vacation time, and the ability to create my own work place environment are the things I like, even down to the music we play, are a few of the other advantages of my current position.
