Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, I moved to California to earn my doctorate degree in Chiropractic, from the Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose. While in school, I took a special interest in sports-related injuries. In my time since graduating I have continued to expand my studies in sports and spine related training.
Some of my additional training includes post graduate education from the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner, certifications in the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Active Release Techniques (ART), Graston Technique, Functional Range Release (FRR), Stecco Fascial Manipulation, Postural Restoration Institute among many others.
Over the years I have enjoyed opportunities to work with teams and organizations which have helped shaped the way I practice. A few of these include:
- Elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon of purplepatch fitness
- Team Chiropractor for the Oracle Racing Team USA during their successful defense of the 34th Americas Cup
- The Olympic Club Rugby Team
- Medical Coordinator for the Sea Otter Classic cycling event in Monterey California
In addition to these clinical experiences I served on the executive board of the American Chiropractic Associations Council on Sports Injuries and Physical Fitness for 3 years.
What to Expect
In my private practice I utilizes a functional approach in patient assessment and treatment, customizing care to each individual to create an optimal plan. This approach involves educating patients about their condition and including them as partners in their care.
A treatment plan will typically integrate a combination of hands on therapy, chiropractic treatment, rehabilitation exercises, and home care instructions.
