I grew up knowing I wanted to help people. I have also loved nature, and the idea that we have an innate ability to heal if given the proper conditions. Being a chiropractor was the perfect fit for me. I graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder program with a psychology degree but was injured in a body surfing accident, and when the chiropractor made so much sense to me about how I had injured myself and what to do about it, I decided to go to Chiropractic school. I graduated from Northwester Health Sciences University with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1988. I have had many years of successful practice in Minnesota, and have come back to my roots and my first love, Colorado.
I have raised my children with the 'chiropractic lifestyle' with as much natural health direction as possible. Because I had children, it was natural that I had a large percentage of pregnany women and children who came to see me. I have become a Master Herbalist and have had extensive extra education in nutritional intervention for illness. They have thrived into healthy adulthood and being able to share all this knowlege with the public is very fulfilling.
I spend most of my free time walking in wild places, camping and gathering my own natural medicines. I also love to eat wild food. I think it has extra nutritional value when it has grown in a natural environment. Many people are surprised how many useful things are just hanging around!
