I was born into a very natural family.  My mom would make our clothes, baby food, and anything else she could.  We even drank cod liver oil daily.  After my birth-mom died when I was two, the family became less holistic, although we still continued to eat quite healthily.  There was no processed cheese-food, margarine or dehydrated potatoes.  We always figured that if God made it, it was better for us than the processed foods, even if “they” claimed it was healthier.

I have always wanted to help people by becoming a doctor.  However, I never liked going to the doctor and didn’t like taking any painkillers or other medications.  In high school, my class took a tour of the local chiropractic school and I found out that chiropractic is more than getting rid of back and neck pain, but it actually helps people to be healthy without drugs and surgery.  I loved the idea!

Once in college, I decided against medical school.  I began to think about chiropractic, but since I’d never been adjusted, I wasn’t ready to sign onto a chiropractic school program.  After I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry, I started working at a biotechnology company.

A few months later, I was in a car accident and then started to see a chiropractor who did a traditional chiropractic technique.  I felt better but didn’t want to continue to see him as often as he wanted me to.  I then talked to a NUCCA chiropractor about his technique and began to get NUCCA adjustments.  It was amazing!  My body would heal itself and stabilize nicely!  Shortly after that, I decided that I had to do NUCCA.  I had to share that experience with other people.  I had to help people.

I moved to the Bay Area and went to Life Chiropractic College West to get my Doctor of Chiropractic degree and then to practice NUCCA.  It has been a challenging, but extremely rewarding, journey.  Now I have the opportunity to share health information with others and to lay hands on them to allow the healing power to heal their bodies.  I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
