Biography

Special Interests

  • Pregnant women
  • Pediatrics

I am a doctor of chiropractic and associate professor at the Northwestern Health Clinic - Bloomington. My practice is primarily focused on the care of pregnant women and children, with natural approaches including chiropractic adjustments, nutritional recommendations and lifestyle improvements. I work to keep updated on current research related to natural care techniques.

I understand the importance of personal responsibility in health care decision-making and consider every step to better health to be a victory. I am most satisfied when a person under my care gets well, gains a new understanding of their condition and learns how to manage or prevent recurrences.

As an associate professor in the area of children’s health, I attempt to bring real-life scenarios into the lecture hall and enjoy seeing the students develop a passion for the care of children.
