My journey with chiropractic started when I was seventeen years old and in the middle of a state high school football championship run. I started having pain and numbness going down my arm, so bad I couldn't feel my hand sometimes. I had also suffered from asthma for most of my childhood and couldn't make it through a game with out my inhaler. Fortunately, our team trainer was a chiropractor who offered to help me, my life would never be the same! Within a few weeks and a series of adjustments my pain was gone. Better yet, I could breathe better! He explained to me that the same nerves that were causing my pain were also supplying information to my lungs. The signal just wasn't getting through, it was as simple as that. At that point, I knew I had a calling. My hope is that I can reach out to others so they can experience their own life changes like I did.
I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN with a degree in Biology and continued on to attend Northwestern Health Sciences University where I became a Doctor of Chiropractic. Since then I have seen and experienced numerous miracles in my practice from watching a child heal from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis to helping a women sleep a full night for the first time in 13 years! One of the best experiences of all was meeting my wife and now being able to practice this great profession along side her.
My calling for chiropractic came a little differently. I was in junior high and I remember my dad laying on the couch one night almost crying because he was in so much pain. He had hurt his low back while working in the oil field, and the only thing he kept saying was that he needed to go to the chiropractor. The next morning he went to see his chiropractor and came walking through our front door a new man. He was happy, smiling and could walk with no pain again. After that day I decided I wanted to be the person who could impact someone's life that way.
I was born and raised in Williston, ND and love going back home to see my family. I graduated from North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND with my bachelors of science degree and then went on to receive my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University. My true passion is working with kids. They are so fun to work with and bring such a joy to the office. Having my husband by my side through this journey is such a blessing.
