I was taking pre-med classes to become an orthopedist and working at the Mayo Clinic, while training for a sprint triathlon, when I began to have low back pain and pain down my left leg. The doctors that I was training with assured me that they would be able to help me. They provided me with anti-inflammatories and pain medicine that not only did not help me, but it had its own set of side effects. They tried sending me to Physical Therapy, which helped slightly, but I still continued to have this awful pain. It was not long before I tried Chiropractic out of desperation. I had heard very little about it and was more than skeptical at first, but I held in there followed up as recommended, and kept learning more and more about how you can treat the actual cause of the pain rather than masking it with pain medication. It wasn't long before I began to see phenomenal results! That was the moment that I decided that I wanted to become a Chiropractor. It made perfect sense to me. Why should I take medication with side effects only to cover up the symptoms, when I can allow my body to heal itself, the way it is supposed to do? That is where the passion to help people through Chiropractic care began. I began researching Chiropractic schools very shortly after that decision. I made many trips to different schools and finally decided on Life College in Atlanta, GA. I finished my under graduate work in the basic Sciences including Physics, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Anatomy, and Physiology before being accepted into Life College of Chiropractic. After being accepted in to Chiropractic School, I began to get more into the courses that would lead me to my career; Biochemistry, Anatomy, Human Physiology, Spinal Biomechanics, X-ray Physics, and Technology, Diagnosis of Human Conditions, Chiropractic Adjusting Techniques, and of course Patient Care. It was an honor to also be recognized at Clinician of the Year by my Fraternity in my last year of Chiropractic School.
