As a child, gymnastics was my passion; little did I know that that passion would create an injury which would lead me to my future career years later. When I was 8 years old I saw a chiropractor for the first time. It was fascinating to me how I could walk out of an appointment and instantly feel better, my ailment cured. That same chiropractor helped me through my years of gymnastics injuries, cheerleading falls, and ultimately kept me feeling my best at all times. Twelve years later, I was in college majoring in BioHealth Sciences and was a little conflicted on what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I always knew I had a passion for the medical field and had a calling to help people. On a whim, I decided to go shadow my chiropractor. After my first day, that same feeling from when I was 8 years old came rushing back; I was still amazed at the healing power just one session held for any patient. I wanted to be able to provide this instant relief to patients and to help them to live a healthy lifestyle, and so began my journey to becoming a chiropractor.
Growing up, I called Kennewick, Washington home, but Oregon stole my heart about 7 years ago when I made the decision to go to Oregon State University. Following my time at OSU, I attended the University of Western States where I obtained my Bachelors in Human Biology and my Doctor of Chiropractic. During my time at the University of Western States I completed my preceptorship at Hartwell Chiropractic where I have practiced for the last year now. This clinic allowed me to greatly expand my knowledge of chiropractic medicine and also sparked a passion for nutrition and rehab under a wonderful mentor who has practiced for 30 years. I am excited to bring all I have learned to the city of Molalla.
In my free time you will usually find me outside with my husband, horses, and lab puppy, hiking or doing cross fit. I look forward to helping you heal and live a healthy, active, and pain-free lifestyle!
