Choosing to become a chiropractor is the first choice any of us face in our profession. Selecting the school for our personal belief starts us off on a path to the chiropractor we will become. I chose Life West Chiropractic College because of its strong philosophical foundation and quality of education. I chose to become an associate doctor to better learn the basic functions of a chiropractic office. After 11 months, I faced one of the crucial choices of business; do I continue working for someone else or do I strike out on my own? I knew I was ready and I opened my practice in a 1000 square foot space in Arlington, Washington. These choices got me to the point where many established chiropractors remain after years in their field.
I knew that running a business was not the last stop for me. Growing up around chiropractors who were dedicated to the philosophy and science of chiropractic made me understand the importance of contributing to the process of chiropractic. It is almost impossible to uphold the principles of our profession without fighting to improve and maintain the integrity of chiropractic. That is why, in 2003, it was an easy choice for me to join the board of the Washington State Chiropractic Association and to accept the nomination as President of the board with my term beginning in 2008. I also sit on the board for the Washington Chiropractic Trust, which is the Political Action Committee that monitors state and federal regulation for chiropractors in Washington. In 2009, I was nominated and accepted into the Chiropractic Knights of the Round Table, which is exclusive to 30 chiropractors in the world.
