Everyone has a story to tell and a journey that has led them to the here and now. For me, I have always been enamored with helping people. Ever since I was young there seemed to be a calling for me to be in the medical profession. It turned out to be just my parents’ voices that were ushering me toward a medical degree. I can say now that I made the correct decision by becoming a chiropractor and I have not looked back since.
I went to a small liberal arts college, Friends University, in my hometown of Wichita, Kansas. I played football there for four years as well as earning my Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Biology. I graduated from Friends University in May of 2005. During this time I had my first exposure to Chiropractic; before then I had not even heard of a chiropractor. I injured my neck playing football and I went through the typical protocol of pain killers and muscle relaxers. After 6 weeks with no relief my best friend told me to go see a chiropractor. I went and within a few weeks my pain was relieved and my interest was peaked by the profession. It also happened that my best friend’s uncle was a chiropractor as well.
I started at Life University in Marietta, Georgia in the fall of 2006. I can tell you that I fell in love with my profession there and from that point on my life would never be the same. I enjoyed learning the philosophy of chiropractic and also the technical application of chiropractic. I was the president of many clubs and student organizations during my time at Life University. I graduated from Life University in March of 2010. I also had the privilege to intern in some of the most successful clinics in the world in Florida, Texas and Georgia. After that it was time to open my own clinic in Kansas City, Missouri near my hometown.
I lived and practiced in Kansas City for almost 3 years. Unfortunately, an illness in my family caused me to sell my clinic to help care for my parents. After that, I had the option to open another clinic in my hometown or travel the world and practice abroad. I decided to pack up and move to Asia and author a new chapter in my life. For 2 years I practiced in Indonesia. I fell in love with island living and had many lessons on slowing down in life. But there was a calling on my heart to return to home, or at least to the United States. Aloha Hawaii.
I enjoy outdoor sports, biking, climbing, and pretty much any outdoor activity. I am a poor swimmer so I am looking to improve in that area. I enjoy reading and listening to music. In my spare time, I look forward to exploring this wonderful place called Hawaii. I really like meeting new people and sharing stories. I try my hardest to glean wisdom from people that are more experienced and learned. I look forward to serving Oahu and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask in person. Aloha!
