Don’t know anything about Chiropractic?

Well, neither did I until I started working in a Chiropractic  office.

The longer I worked, the more convinced I was of the amazing health benefits of Chiropractic care. My family and friends thought I was crazy when I was telling them about the results I was seeing and finally experiencing for myself. I started by running the front desk, then later on to examining, taking x-rays, and doing therapy on patients.

Education

After several years of working, I started taking night classes at Thomas More College, considering degrees that I could obtain locally and on a part time basis as it was necessary for me to continue to work full time. After meeting a very remarkable patient, and much consideration, I knew Chiropractic was where I was meant to be. After finishing most of my prerequisites locally, I moved to the St. Louis area to finish my organic chemistry and physics at a college where I could take these classes at an accelerated rate, finishing a full year of study in half the time. This enabled me to enter Logan Chiropractic College a semester earlier.

My experience at Logan College of Chiropractic was intensive, extremely thorough, and rewarding. I am thankful on a daily basis for the skill and education of the professors who taught me. I was fortunate to have professors from the varied fields of medicine including chiropractic, medical doctors, pharmacist, physical therapist, and the like. The professors emphasized how the body works, being able to figure out what is wrong even when the presenting health condition is not in the text book. Many of the post graduate courses I have taken reinforce the extensive education I received as most of these are review for me. I graduated in the spring of 1988 with the distinct honor of Magna Cum Laude.

It is a privilege to be a part of an individual’s health care team. My job is to provide the best chiropractic care possible assisting the individuals’ healing ability, or to guide the patient where they will receive the care they need if it is not a chiropractic case.

“I care for and about your health!”

Caring for individuals of all ages and a variety of conditions and health concerns is very rewarding for both the patient and doctor alike. The patient’s overall health and quality of life improves, and a friend/family type bond forms between the doctor and patient. Patients also learn much about their health and how to live a healthier lifestyle. I in turn, learn much about life experiences and history as experienced by individuals which has made life much more interesting.

One of the most rewarding experiences of my life has been that of a mother and grandmother. Even though I came from a family of ten children and always wanted a houseful of children myself,  I only have one son.   He and his wife have blessed me with two wonderful grandsons.   As I grew up in the country and had free access to the outdoors, I still prefer to be outdoors in my free time. I have learned to appreciate every season of the year and love to hike year round, bike and kayak as the seasons permit.

Being proactive in my own health is vital. I never turn down the opportunity to receive an adjustment (chiropractic treatment), as I know both professionally and personally the benefits of chiropractic care whether I’m in pain or not!  Along with being adjusted frequently, eating healthy, and exercising regularly, I believe my spiritual and emotional life is critical to my overall health.
