What motivates you to work hard?
The miracles that go on in the clinic. When you see a patient walk into the office knowing that they have had headaches for their whole lives and after one appointment, they went without a headache for a few hours or days, is incredible. I love seeing the direct impact treatments have on people. I am motivated to get incredible results quickly because that is what gets me excited for the day.

What is your favorite part about being a doctor?
I can’t imagine doing anything else in life than being a chiropractor. Every morning I look forward to helping patients on their road to recovery. Seeing a patient with chronic headaches, or just got in a car accident and are in significant discomfort and being able to physically restore them to be able to feel better and get back to their daily lives without limitations is an incredible thing. I feel fortunate that so many people put their trust to help them feel better.
