I love being an Aunt, traveling and being with the horses. I never realized that working in the birthing community would give me never ending access to so many wonderful families, parents, and children. I learn so much from each person I work with and I just love doing this work.
My personal pillars of health are good food, bare feet, and love; especially as a woman within our current culture. I find that women are some of the first to disconnect from their bodies and “grin and bear it”. Our bodies are capable of amazing feats and adaptation through childbirth but also as the traditional role of stability in most communities and I believe that we should find the time to care for ourselves. I find that with encouragement to feed our bodies with delicious and fulfilling foods, with time outside in nature alone or with our loved ones, with healthy relationships and affection, women can reconnect with themselves and work towards actualizing all of their true strength.
My demeanor as a healer had been influenced by my many years of working with horses. They are animals that have taught me to always be respectful, attentive, and to stay humble and empathic with all things I do. A quiet confidence comes with understanding and flexibility.
About my education
I have a great passion for learning, even while I'm busy I have a tab saved on my browser for a class on equine nutrition, or am hitting the library for a book on fruit trees. The University of Western States taught us to pursue what is new and relevant and then to mix it with the craft of chiropractic. I love teaching and helping others learn more about their bodies or their health. One of my favorite concepts is that you can't unlearn something once you know; and it just might help you make a better choice the next time around.
I like this graphic produced by National College because it shows how chiropractic has changed; it is a four year doctoral degree with all of the responsibilities that go with it. In our ever specializing medical system I hope you can see your chiropractor as a musculoskeletal specialist offering low impact noninvasive treatments that can be a great alternative or complementary with traditional allopathic care.
