I grew up in Idabel, Oklahoma where I graduated in 2004. In the fall of 2004 I started my undergraduate education at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma where I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences in May 2008. A week after graduating from Oklahoma State, I started my pursuit for further education at Parker University where I graduated with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in April 2011. In 2013, I participated in taking care of CrossFit athletes at both the North Central CrossFit Regionals and the CrossFit games. I taught Anatomy and Physiology as an associate professor for 3 years at Northwest Arkansas Community College. On a different note, in November of 2014 I completed my first full distance IronMan triathlon in Cozumel, Mexico. I have also completed a half IronMan and numerous other endurance races with many more to come! Part of the reason fueling me to do these races are to know exactly what has to go in to training for a race of that caliber so that I may be better able to understand and help my patients that have done the same.
My passion is helping people function at 100%. I approach this through chiropractic care, functional medicine, specific dietary modifications and postural exercises, so that I can help my patients understand how the body works and how they can keep it working not only properly, but optimally.
I am extremely excited about teaching chiropractic, wellness and fitness concepts to the greater Rogers/Bentonville community and want to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with as many individuals as possible.
Because of my passion to continually learn the latest scientifically and clinically relevant treatment measures, I have attended several post graduate education seminars both while at Parker and since graduating dealing in the topics of:
Active therapeutic movement
Instrument assisted soft tissue release
I have received certification in Functional Blood Chemistry, Functional Thyroid Disorders and Functional Brain and Neurotransmitter Dysfunction in order to better serve my patients.
