I graduated from National University Health Sciences-Florida campus in 2015. Various bumps and bruises during my baseball career led me to seek sports medicine education via athletic training and chiropractic programs. A passion of mine is utilizing nutrition to maximize human performance, both on and off the field. I am especially excited to contribute to Northwestern Health Sciences University and the sports chiropractic community through academic research, student mentoring and clinical practice in the Human Performance Center.

I come to the Human Performance Center with 12 years of athletic training experience, and have received my MS in Sports Psychology (Minnesota State University, Mankato 2010) and my Doctorate of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University (2015). I am honored to be joining an amazing team in the Human Performance Center. My primary focus is the development of new educational material for both the CCSP and the ICCSP in combination with FICS. My research will center on the relationship between concussion and psychiatric disorders and the long term impact on the individual. This research will allow me to link together my work as a practitioner and my passion for Sport Psychology. This opportunity will help me grow both as an educator and a provider.

I am a Chiropractic student here at Northwestern Health Sciences University. Sports and performance were a huge part of my life growing up and I'm excited to have the opportunity to continue learning from the doctors in the Human Performance Center. Working in the integrative clinic of the Human Performance Center as the student administrative assistant. I have been fortunate to see the importance of integrative care. With the help of the HPC started an integrative sports club on campus called the Student Federation of International Care-Sports (SFICS). Soon enough I hope to be a chiropractic intern with the HPC to further my knowledge of athlete treatment.
