Looking back, it was fate that lead me to my lower back injury several years ago. I was working in a job that was extremely physical and I was lifting and handling over 30 thousand pounds of material each shift. This eventually caused my lower back injury and it was only when I could not stand that I made my first visit to my chiropractor. He helped me not only regain my health but help me understand how my body worked and how healing is a natural phenomenon in the human body.
When I discovered chiropractic, I was near a bachelors degree in computer science but had taken time off school to work in a factory to fund further schooling. I was invited and encouraged by a friend, and and my new found chiropractor, to investigate the profession and consider going to school to follow a path to help others as chiropractic had helped me. That is when I entered Kent State University and completed my studies to move to St. Louis and attend Logan College of Chiropractic. I can remember not only going to school full time but also working in a number of restaurants, as both a cook and waiter, to help survive the financial stresses of being a student.

My philosophy is very basic when it comes to chiropractic. The body is a self healing and self regulating mechanism that heals naturally when there is no interference with the healing process. Chiropractic checks to see if the nerve system is working properly.
