Currently Teaching (2014-2015)


  • Clinical trials
  • Qualitative research
  • Musculoskeletal pain

I really enjoy working with patients to make a difference in their health. As part of the clinical trial team, I get the opportunity to work with and treat a large variety of patients. I find it very rewarding to see the difference that chiropractic care can make in someone’s life. I feel fortunate to work in a setting that not only provides high-quality patient care, but also conducts high-quality research that has the potential to help inform the future of health care.

I love the community of Bloomington and live here with my husband and children. In my spare time, I enjoy staying active with my family, reading, sewing and scrapbooking.
