I always say that I didn’t choose to become a chiropractor; chiropractic found me, and it has been my great joy to help my patients lead healthier lives since going into practice in 1998.
When I was 20, I suffered a back injury at work that did not respond to any type of care. After eight weeks of agony, I finally took the advice of a friend and went to see a chiropractor. From my first visit, the results were nothing short of miraculous. I felt so much better, and when I was involved in a car accident six weeks later, my chiropractor helped me heal from that too.
After a few months of care, I also noticed changes in my general health: my chronic sinus headaches had resolved, and it seemed that my concentration was much better. As I continued to visit my chiropractor, I saw people of all ages in his office living healthier, more vibrant lives. I realized that becoming a chiropractor was something that I simply HAD to do.
After 3 years of studying Kinesiology at the University of Victoria, I went on to complete my chiropractic education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose, California, graduating in 1997. Learning has always been a passion for me, so I’ve also attended several postgraduate programs that focused on care for pregnant women and children. My practice has a special focus on prenatal care and care for young infants. It is very special for me to be able to provide care for expectant moms and new babies.
I believe that it is never too early or too late to benefit from chiropractic care, and I witness the benefits in my patients every day. The body knows how to heal itself, but sometimes it runs into interferences that block this. My job as a chiropractor is to give each person’s body the tools it needs to return to health, stay healthy, and maybe even become healthier and more vital over time.
