As a young kid, age 10, my father became very ill and spent several months in the hospital. He went through months of physical therapy. During his recovery, I would often go to the rehab center to ride the exercise bikes and stretch with him. I knew at that age I wanted to help people be healthy, I just wasn’t sure how.
In high school, I began struggling with neck pain and headaches. My best friend’s dad was a chiropractor, so I went to see him. He did an examination and x-rays, adjusted my spine and I felt relief almost instantly. It worked so well for me, and I was so impressed with how healthy everyone was in his office that I decided to become a chiropractor myself!
I began my education at Texas State University in San Marcos, earning a Bachelor of Science, with an emphasis on psychology in 2002. Then went on to earn the degree Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker College of Chiropractic in 2006. Parker College of Chiropractic is known for educating their doctors to be industry leaders. By integrating clinical experience and emphasizing research, Parker College provided me with an excellent education and the training I need to help people of all ages live healthy lives. While in school, I spent my summer and winter breaks traveling as much as possible and working jobs such as a whitewater rafting guide, snowboard instructor, and personal trainer, which have all contributed to my ability to help and educate people.
At the end of chiropractic school, I wanted to volunteer my time and energy to help others in need and found the perfect opportunity in Mexico City, where I was able to work with a wide variety of people and their health problems. My travels through Mexico taught me valuable lessons that have contributed to my passion for this profession.
After graduation, I wanted to start a practice with a positive outlook on health. And, I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor in Austin, the greatest city in all of Texas. So I started Discover Chiropractic in 2008 with the goal of helping people to live happier and healthier lives. People need to know that the key to health doesn’t come in a bottle or pill, or any outside source. Health comes from within.
