Words can hardly express how honored I am to join the team at Better Health! Being a health care provider in the state of Alaska has been a dream of mine for many years and this opportunity to serve the Anchorage area is a privilege. Along with the team here at Better Health, I will work to find, treat and relieve pain problems that have been gone unrelieved by other treatment regimens.
I grew up in Plainfield, a moderately sized town outside of Indianapolis, Indiana. The idea of becoming a chiropractor did not happen for me until I was in my undergraduate program in Columbia, Missouri. I had the pleasure of being treated and mentored by a wonderful chiropractor after being seen for post-surgical pains.
I decided to begin chiropractic college at Logan University in 2011. I have been teaching anatomy and physiology to nursing students for two years, and hope to continue part-time lecturing here in Anchorage. However, chiropractic will always be my true passion and I hope that my ability to understand the human body will help to produce a real, logical, fully understood diagnosis of your spinal condition.
My significant other and I have been together for nearly five years. She is an occupational therapist for children. We met in graduate school and have not spent a day apart since our first date. We do not have any children, but we do have two dogs that we spoil immensely. We are American Motors car enthusiasts and restore vehicles whenever we have the chance. (We are currently in the process of restoring a 1969 Rambler and a 1976 Gremlin!) When I have the time, I play the drums and piano.
By continuously staying abreast of the latest developments in technology and science related to chiropractic and physical medicine, I work continuously to find new ways to educate myself to better suit my patients’ needs.
My patients are also my friends and I consider each one of you important. Without the patient, a doctor is useless, so feel free to contact me personally via the clinic phone number or my personal cell.
