Passionate About Helping Others Become The Best Versions of Themselves

My path to chiropractic was winding and had some stops along the way but I have always been passionate about working with people and helping them become the best versions of themselves. I grew up in Rocky River, OH, playing as many sports as I could and spending my summers at camp, first as a camper and eventually as a counselor. I absolutely loved working with kids letting them grow and explore who they were while becoming more independent and secure of who they were.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to chiropractic at an early age and was adjusted while I was growing up. I enjoyed science and wanted to be able to help people but was unsure of the specifics. I attended Fordham University in New York City and earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Following graduation, I worked in the special education field for the Cleveland Clinic and then at Monarch Center for Autism in Shaker Heights, OH. I absolutely loved this work and it taught me a great deal about who I am as a person and really emphasized how important it is to look at each person as an individual to best serve their needs. During this time, I began to explore the idea of pursuing chiropractic as a profession, instead of just as a patient, and ended up enrolling at Logan University in St. Louis, MO and starting my doctorate in September 2015. I graduated in December 2018 with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree and love being back in the Cleveland area!

During my time in school I sought out training in as many different chiropractic techniques and exposed myself to as many new situations as possible. I regularly traveled to different cities for training, attending over 40 different seminars while I was in school. I elected to participate in clinical rotation programs to treat under-served populations in the St. Louis area and even ended up going to Ecuador as part of an international chiropractic service trip! It might be a little nerdy, but I LOVE learning. Since graduating I have continued to attend as many continuing education events as I can and am constantly adding new tools and treatments to the offerings at the office. My goal is to have a way to help every single person who walks into the office in a way they are comfortable with! 

 

In my free time, I love to read, practice yoga, camp, craft, travel, scuba dive, explore Cleveland, spend time with my dogs, and go to as many concerts as possible. (If you want to do something new and need a buddy, just ask me- I'm always on the lookout for new adventures and hobbies!)
