My journey to Chiropractic started over a decade ago after a casual conversation with a friend on what we wanted to do when we “grew up.” I would be lying if I said that Chiropractic was the first, or even tenth thing on my list. The truth; it didn’t even make it to my list.
Ever since I can recall, I have been obsessed with finding out how things work and being able to fix anything that was broken. In my teenage years I become the person that friends and neighbors would go to if they had issues with their electronic equipment. Studying engineering was a logical choice for me. To me that meant that I would get to make things happen…to make things work better and I LOVED it!
So why did I choose Chiropractic as a second career? The truth– I didn’t choose chiropractic, it chose me.
Great minds in Chiropractic such as Dr. John Demartini say “you don’t choose Chiropractic, Chiropractic chooses you!” and that I know to be my case.
As a Doctor of Chiropractic I am able to help improve, and change quality of lives towards a healthier, happier, more joyful and active life. I am able to do this by finding the root cause of chronic and persistent issues that we all deal with on a daily basis and removing them to allow the body to heal.
My purpose is to help individuals who want to live a life of health and wellness and achieve optimum chiropractic care. So the way I see it, I am pretty lucky, I get to do what I love which is making positive impact and in the process I get to improve people’s lives. What can be better than that?
My passion for children and providing them with a healthy start in life lead me to Dr. Yannick Pauli of Switzerland. Dr. Pauli is one of the foremost experts in the field of natural management of ADHD and ADD. I studied with Dr. Pauli for two years, learning his ground breaking, highly successful program that has helped thousands of children and their families throughout Europe.
My goal is to bring his program to the Portland and help thousands more to experience the life changing benefit that this program has to offer; one child at a time, one family at a time.
I obtained my degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon.
I have completed postgraduate studies in Graston Technique for soft tissue injuries, MC2, TRT (Torque Release Technique), Nutrition Response Testing, B.E.S.T. (Bio energetic Synchronization Technique), Activator Technique, Koren Specific Technique and Diversified Adjustment Technique. I also have been studying ”Anti Aging through Chiropractic” which hand in hand with nutrition, activities of daily living, exercising and addressing the emotional aspects of chronic conditions, help achieve and maintain each individual’s health goals.
Prior to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic, I worked in the high-tech industry with the majority of my time spent at Intel Corporation in Oregon and Computer Associates Inc in New York. My roles included software quality engineer, data/business analyst and technical marketing engineer. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).
