As long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a doctor. At an early age, I knew my purpose was to care for and restore function and health in people’s lives. As I grew older strength and conditioning became an integral part of my life. Just before graduation from the University of Idaho in 2001, I worked as an assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Idaho Vandals. Those three months of working with athletes shaped my future as a chiropractor.
After graduation I worked as a certified personal trainer, instructing clients in weight loss programs, resistance training, water aerobics, floor aerobics, and Pilates.
Knowing I wanted to work closer with athletes, I decided chiropractic school was the best option for me. I began attending Western States Chiropractic College studying anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and a plethora of other classes that would provide me the tools to help patients and athletes to reach their goals. While at Western States, I participated in the Sports Medicine Club which allowed me to work one on one with various sports.
Since graduation in 2007, I have worked as an associate chiropractor spending three and a half years working in Auburn, Washington and 4 ½ years in Renton, Washington. The last eight years has taught me the importance of a personalized individual approach to health and wellness for each patient I encounter.
In my personal time, I enjoy attending Seattle Sounders matches with my husband, golfing, playing with my adorable boxer and kitty, and creating jewelry for friends and family.
