Life continues to create adventures I could never possibly understand, and my journey to chiropractic is one of them. I grew up in Stoughton,WI ?and moved to DeForest upon completing Chiropractic college, because of my husband’s job. ?I attended UW-Platteville and received my bachelors degree in Biology with a Zoology emphasis, and a Business minor. After graduation, I moved to Davenport, IA to pursue my dream career – a Doctor of Chiropractic. In the years of undergrad, having only known the medical model, I assumed I would be going into nursing. I was a CNA (Nursing Assistant) for 6 years between undergraduate and grad school, because I loved helping people. It was actually in doing my job during a summer break that I injured my back, and when I could not be helped in physical therapy, my mom suggested trying a chiropractor. Three adjustments later, I knew what I would be doing the rest of my life!
I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in February 2010, with an extra nutrition certification and my C.C.E.P (Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner) degree. I am currently finishing my Pediatric Diplomate, another 300 hour program to specialize in the care of pediatric practice members. I was active in college soccer as well as 4-H while growing up, always to with our horses and animals I grew up with. I was so excited to have gotten married the week before graduation, and to find out our first child, Keegan, would be welcomed in August of 2010. What a blessing!
