In 1971 at the age of 5 years old I fell from a slide, fractured my skull, had a traumatic brain injury and near death experience. Over the years, this injury made me sensitive to sun light, had frequent headaches, migraines and neck pain. A few years later I developed a stuttering speech impediment which all evolved into bouts of anxiety and depression. I never realized this head injury affected my brain and nervous system function and was deeply connected to my symptoms.
I saw my first chiropractor in 1985 for relief of headaches, migraines and neck pain. After a few visits I began experiencing great relief. The chiropractor explained to me the connection of brain / body communication and the nervous system connection. Lights went off in my whole body, I knew clearly in that moment I wanted to be a chiropractor. I wanted to help people heal themselves with natural holistic techniques, empower people, inspire people to be healthy and happy.
