Current Research Interests

Attitudes and perceptions of chiropractic students about posture and postural correction

My greatest interest is making what is taught in the chiropractic curriculum applicable to the real world. Any course I teach includes examples of actual situations that a future doctor may encounter. My hope is that this will make the student better prepared to succeed upon graduation and licensure.

When I was in the United States Marine Corps we were taught that the mission comes first. In our mission of training future doctors of chiropractic, I make myself available to help the students in any way I can.

Doctors of chiropractic work in many different settings and use many different techniques. I like to help students explore how exactly they would like to practice so that, upon graduation, they have a solid sense of what they are going to do to facilitate their success in this wonderful profession.

In the clinical setting, my two main focuses are helping students become as technically proficient as possible and to hone their clinical decision-making skills.
