Being healthy is more than just staying in shape and eating right. It goes much deeper than that. I wish my parents would have taken me to a chiropractor as a child so that I could have reaped the benefits – such as a better working immune system and more energy – earlier in life.
I was drawn to chiropractic when a friend from college started talking to me about the profession. I knew that I wanted to go into the healthcare field, but after learning more about what chiropractic care offered people, I realized that it was a perfect fit. I could work with all types and ages of people, from infants to the elderly, with a variety of ailments, needs and goals.
I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I then attended Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. There, I took classes in anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, nutrition, radiology, physical diagnosis, as well as chiropractic technique classes. I am also a certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner and have taken extra courses on treating athletes, with an emphasis on junior high and high school athletes. I also have certifications in Nutrition, Sports Nutrition and Rehabilitation
