The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause of prevention of disease.– Thomas Edison
We all have those moments. The ones that in retrospect, become a turning point in our lives – an “aha” moment if you will. Mine started with a simple headache that gradually became too large to ignore.
As a young adult I suffered from debilitating headaches that were affecting my quality of life. When more than two years of conventional medical methods brought no relief, I decided to try chiropractic care. That very first adjustment brought so much relief I was stunned. I knew then that I wanted to become a healer. With a course of treatment the severity and frequency of the pain began to decrease until I was completely free of the headaches.
That profound experience led me to Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon to pursue a Doctorate of Chiropractic so I could share those same benefits I had experienced with others.
Over the years I’ve worked with many types of patients including infants, children and teens, as well as adults including the elderly. I also work with mothers at all stages of their pregnancy. Offering quality care in a comfortable environment is my absolute topmost priority.
I hold a Bachelors of Science in Human Biology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. I have worked as a clinician and lab instructor, a student mentor at Western States Chiropractic Clinic, as well as an instructor of Dental Assisting and Office Management for vocational schools.
I have lived in the Portland area since 1978 and I’m active in the SE community, including participation on an Advisory Board at Clackamas Community College and as a member of the Foster Neighborhood Business Association. As a true “northwesterner” I enjoy camping, hiking and exploring this beautiful region we call The Great Northwest.
