My mission is to help women have a healthy, comfortable, and informed pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period, through the use of chiropractic, nutrition, and educational support, so that they can feel supported and empowered throughout motherhood.
I knew from a young age that I wanted to make a difference in people's lives through health care. In high school, I became aware of the benefits of Chiropractic care while hearing about the incredible results my grandmother was getting from being treated by a Chiropractor. Although my grandmother was not in the medical industry, she had a holistic mind-set and educated herself on alternative therapies. My grandmother and I spent a lot of time together through my high school and college years and the more that she discussed alternative therapies with me, the more intrigued I became. After heading to college, I began suffering from migraines. I remembered my grandmother's experience and sought out a Chiropractor, who was able to significantly reduce the severity and frequency of my migraines. This experience solidified my decision, and ultimately led me to pursue a career in Chiropractic.
I grew up in northeastern Ohio and attended The Ohio State University for my undergraduate education. Afterwards, I moved to St. Louis to attend Logan College of Chiropractic. After graduating from Logan, I practiced for about a year in southern California before returning to the Midwest.
During my time at Logan, I attended additional classes through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) to become more proficient in providing chiropractic care for children and pregnant women. Through the ICPA, I became certified in the Webster Technique, which works on balancing the pregnant mother's pelvis and uterine ligaments to allow for a more comfortable pregnancy - and room for baby!
Because I believe that proper nutrition is a key component to healing and overall better health, I pursued my Masters in Nutrition and Human Performance at Logan. As an additional service to my patients, I also offer nutritional counseling services at my office.
When I'm not treating patients, some of my favorite things to do include spending time outside with my husband and daughter, visiting family, and playing sports. I have also volunteered on the Foster team for Tenth Life Cat Rescue in St. Louis since 2013.
