I began on my path towards chiropractic while obtaining my Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology at Seattle University. I was inspired to have a career in the therapeutic field after volunteering as a physical therapist aide in the Seattle Children’s Hospital Constraint Casting Department for children with cerebral palsy. As I helped the children achieve their goals, I would see how proud they were with their progress and realized how much I wanted to help others experience those momentous achievements. To explore my options, I worked for a physical therapist, I shadowed athletic trainers, OTs, and DOs, but after one day of shadowing a chiropractor I was convinced — this was what I wanted to do!
To pursue this path, I earned my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree (D.C.) at Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose CA. During this time, I was involved in many organizations, which included: Sports Council, Rehab 2 Performance, Motion Palpation Club, and Community Outreach Clinics where we treated underserved communities. I also coached boot-camp classes at Cali Boxing & Fitness. While preceptoring in Portland OR, I coached boxing for Parkinson’s patients and participated in treating the Portland Thorns women’s soccer team.
I decided to become a chiropractor because I like to connect and spend time with my patients. I help people realize their body’s potential through manual manipulation, rehabilitation, muscle release work, but most importantly, I do this by listening to you and what you want from your body. As a chiropractor, I help facilitate your body to be the best version of itself so cou can go back to doing what you do best.
