    People often ask me why I am a chiropractor and not a “real doctor”.

    I just chuckle and say I don’t do blood or any other body fluids very well. Seriously though I always knew that my desire in life was to help people live healthy lives, and I just couldn’t see how allopathic medicine was achieving health in my friends and families lives. I have been under chiropractic care since I was eight years old, my father is a chiropractor and I have seen so many lives changed through his care. I just couldn’t see doing anything else but helping people by teaching them about how their bodies function better through chiropractic care.

    Both of my children Kendra and Jared have been under chiropractic care since birth and my husband and I are so thankful for that. The main reason being their health, where most parents go through colic, fevers, earaches, flu, colds and other illness we can count on one hand the amount of colds they have had and neither has ever had an ear infection. Kendra is now married to a chiropractor and the mother of my two adorable grandchildren, both who have been adjusted within minutes of their birth. Kendra has only been on antibiotics twice her whole life, once was for a broken finger (to the bone). My son Jared had an allergic reaction to mold that created a massive sinus infection (infections close to the brain require assistance), which we choose to use antibiotics. I am unable to fathom how different our lives would be without chiropractic care, I am also unwilling to turn back the clock and find out.

    My goal was to be a chiropractor as soon as possible after high school graduation, that didn’t happen as planned. It was 12 years later that I began my chiropractic education at Palmer College of Chiropractic.

    I have currently been providing chiropractic care to the folks of Kalkaska and surrounding communities for 21 years. It has been such an honor to come home and do what I had hoped to do, save lives and help folks make better health choices for themselves and their families.
