Personal Information


Currently Teaching (2017-2018)

Current Research Interests

Maternal and infant care

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 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 a classroom instructor 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.
