As long as I can remember, I 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 closely with athletes, I decided to become a chiropractor. At Western States Chiropractic College, I studied anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and a plethora of other subjects that gave me the tools to help patients and athletes to reach their goals. While at Western States, I participated in the Sports Medicine Club. This enabled me to work one-on-one with athletes in a variety of sports.
After graduating with my Doctorate in Chiropractic in 2007, I worked as an associate chiropractor for seven years. In 2014, I opened my own chiropractic clinic in Federal Way, Washington.
Having treated patients for more than a decade, I’ve taken to heart the importance of a personalized, individual approach to health and wellness for each patient I treat. Every person's body, concerns, challenges, and desires are unique. My aim is to treat, educate, and support each patient to reach their health goals.
In my practice, I use several types of chiropractic treatment techniques and tools to meet the variety of preferences and physical needs of my patients.
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.
