When I graduated I wanted to be a sports chiropractor, since that time, my wife and I have had 2 boys. During our pregnancies, I realized that having a family chiropractic office was my true calling. When our second son was born, he spent 62 days in the hospital. For 60 of those days I adjusted him. At this time, my passion is to see as many families as I can. I love helping pregnant woman through their entire pregnancy. It is one of the biggest compliments when a pregnant mom brings in her brand new baby after seeing her through the whole pregnancy.
What is your favorite thing about being a chiropractor?
I didn’t realize it when I started chiropractic, but it is truly amazing to watch the families that come in mature right in front of me. Since being in practice since 2006, it has been a pleasure getting to see so many families grow.
What drives you?
I’m always striving to achieve a work/life balance. Having a family practice is amazing and I love it, but hanging out with my family while playing hockey and watching hockey is easily my desire.
What is something funny about you?
I am a crazy cat lady disguised in a man’s body!
