How did you get started?: I all started when I was injured lifting weights for football in high school to the point that I was not able to stand up. I went to the chiropractor for a few visits and was back on the football field in a week. I was a fan immediately of chiropractic, but did not think of it as a profession at that time. In college, I started as an athletic training major, but after a year I knew that I was not in exactly the right field, but I was close. I ended up visiting a couple chiropractic schools and then knew that I had found what I had been searching for.
What I do every day: Wake up with a sense of purpose and try to affect those I come in contact with everyday in a positive way whether it’s a patient, a friend, or the checkout person at the grocery store. One of my favorite quotes goes like this, “We never know how far reaching something we may think, say or do today will affect the lives of others tomorrow.”
