My Chiropractic Story

This week I want to share my story with you. My journey to becoming a chiropractor has been one of discovery and growth.

As a teenager, a car accident left me with neck and hand pain. Apprehensively, I sought relief from a chiropractor.  This was the first doctor that could provide me with an answer for how my body worked and why I had so many complex, connect symptoms. Not only did he explain things logically, but  he offered natural solutions that could cure and correct my problems, not just mask them.  He assessed my overall health and addressed other health concerns that had plagued many physicians.

While at Palmer, I had the opportunity to travel abroad to practice in a clinic in India.

This positive connection was life-changing and the doctor offered me a part-time job, doing PR and marketing in his practice. At the time, I was attending Augustana College, working towards a business degree. As a senior, when it came time to do an internship, I was determined to continue working in a field that was growing on me. My responsibilities as an intern grew and I began working in the therapy room, directly with patients.  Participating in patients’ healthcare and seeing positive natural results made my internship experience rewarding and satisfying.  The team I worked with was equally excited and going in to work was fun.

The doctor, noticing my enthusiasm, suggested that I go to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, which was only a few minutes away. I decided to apply and see what happened. I graduated from Augustana and began classes at Palmer just nine days later. Since then, I haven’t looked back!

I am so passionate about my profession.  Chiropractic and acupuncture have shaped my identity and lifestyle.  I am enthusiastic about what the future holds, as my practice continues to flourish. Being part of positive change in the lives of others is what keeps me motivated and invested.

Now I want to hear the stories that have inspired your career choices and influenced your lives. Please share!
