So you can get to know her a little better we had her write a little about herself and how she got involved we chiropractic.
I'm a "mover and a shaker". Yes, I've always been fascinated by movement. Growing up as a dancer and gymnast, I was constantly intrigued by human movement and function. My inquisitive mind wouldn't let me sit still. I was the tactile one who always needed to find out how things worked. I grew up as the second of four kids in a family where service came first. My parents were big believers that the best way to show gratitude for what we had was to share our generosity and our talents. At 17 years old I experienced the benefits of chiropractic care while interning for a chiropractor in MA. I wasn't in pain, but after receiving care I began experiencing greater forms of health I didn't even know I had. I was convinced that I would serve others by helping them unlock this unused potential through chiropractic care. That internship lead into my freshman year of college where I found myself starting my degree as a Kinesiology Major and Neurology Minor at Gordon College in Wenham, MA. Throughout school, I wanted to take blend my academic and philanthropic passions. I created a Physical Coordination Program for post stroke victims, Parkinson’s patients and other patients with motor deficits at the Center for Balance Wellness and Mobility,and worked in the Parkinson's Rehabilitation Program. Upon graduating I immediately started my doctor of chiropractic degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic, as school I had admired since I was 18. Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida was a change from growing up in New England my entire life, but I immediately fell in love with the school and the community and am proud to call Florida my new home. While at Palmer I learned the most important philosophies behind how and why I practice. I learned the importance of letting the body heal itself and understanding the patient as a whole. I have modeled my methods of care on that philosophy. I want to help patients realize their physical health, emotional , mental and spiritual health. After holding several leadership positions and being a Teaching Assistant for a 6 courses, I found my passion in the clinic where I devoted countless hours. Patient care, combined my academic mind and my passion for service. I had spent two school breaks serving as chiropractor for underprivileged communities in the Dominican Republic with Chiromission. Upon graduating from Palmer, I was awarded the Clinical Excellence Award. After leaving Palmer, I felt called to continue serving the people of the Dominican Republic. I just completed an 8 month mission trip through Chiromission and now serve as a board member. I strive to meet patients where they are in their journey to wellness. I consider it a true honor to work with people from all walks of life and encourage them along their road to healing.
I am so blessed and so excited to be part of this practice and this community, that's working towards a world of wellness.
