Currently Teaching (2012-2013)
My approach to teaching is to give you, the practitioner, practical, yet thorough and easy to understand information that you can use in your practice immediately to help bring about transformational change for your patients and your clinical practice.
My unique style of incorporating nutritional therapy to support physiology and function - in contrast to attempting to place a nutrient in a biochemical reaction - makes my approach simple and enjoyable, yet clinically sound.
After receiving my bachelor of science degree in biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1981, I went on to obtain my doctor of chiropractic degree from National University of Health Sciences (formerly the National College of Chiropractic) in 1985. In 2007, I obtained my diplomate status in nutrition (DACBN) from the American Clinical Board of Nutrition.
I practiced as an associate doctor from 1985 through 1987 before opening my own practice in May 1988. I practiced just outside of Cleveland, Ohio for 22 years. For the first 12 years, my practice had a primary focus on musculoskeletal conditions. In 1997, I changed the direction of the practice towards “functional wellness.” Functional wellness is the incorporation of nutrition into a chiropractic practice to support function of a gland or organ instead of trying to take an individual nutrient to “fix” this complex biochemical machine we call the human body.
In January 2013, my book, Practicing with Excellence and Integrity: How to Take Your Practice from Good to Great! was published. It offers practical advice that ranges from setting up a practice to improving leadership skills.
It is my honor to be part of the Master of Health Science in Clinical Nutrition program at Northwestern Health Sciences University and I sincerely look forward to taking this journey with you.
