A native of Kansas City, MO, I find myself growing more attached to the Pacific Southwest every day. I stay physically active by weight lifting in the fitness center and playing tennis in the sunny California weather. I chose University of Western States for my Doctor of Chiropractic degree for its evidence-informed curriculum. I continue to learn all that I can about the science of human body while strive to remain rooted to nature. Thus, I am continuing my education of alternative medicine at South Baylo University for MSAOM degree.
I always thank God for giving me a caring, diligent and passionate mind and heart to care for other people's health. I love what I do most when I see my clients self-esteem increase through their hard work and effort. My goal is not just to make you feel or look better, but to make you healthier, stronger and younger. With over 15 years of experience in rehab and physical therapy at different hospitals, I've achieved how to give therapeutic massages to help people not only heal from the pain but get rehabilitated by adjusting unrealized bad postures and daily habits.
