I am excited that you are interested in who I am and what I do. I am a doctor of chiropractic and owner of Optimal Health and Wellness Chiropractic Center. Chiropractic is the treatment of the present and future! Thomas Edison coined it accurate centuries ago when he said ”The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human body, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
I have come a long way to get to where I am. After I graduated Salutatorian at St Joseph Highschool in Natrona Heights, I began my journey with my undergraduate studies. I have a bachelor’s degree in business management, marketing, and information technology from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA where I graduated Cum Laude . Those of you who are a patient at Optimal Health & Wellness Chiropractic Center, already know that I was born and raised in Northern Pittsburgh, PA! It was my senior year of college when I had shadowed a small business owner for a business class and naturally I had chosen my first chiropractor’s business to shadow. It was through this project of shadowing my first chiropractor that I decided to change my career path and become a chiropractor myself. I had been under Chiropractic care since I was in 7th grade. Growing up, anytime I would say I’m going to the doctor, I actually meant I was going to the chiropractor. My family and I grew up choosing alternative ways to health and natural remedies. I mostly have been to a medical doctor or a midwife for wellness reasons (my own birth, physicals, check ups, prenatal care (I have 3 incredibly wonderful kiddos that were born at The Midwife Center) and…. a poisonous spider bite- ouch!). Would you believe that I next to never get sick. I can only recall during my adult life having an antibiotic once for getting my wisdom teeth removed. My chiropractor has kept me as healthy as can be and have always been able to handle my life with natural remedies!
After I obtained my bachelor’s degree, I went on to pre-health so I could enter chiropractic school. I went to Sherman College Of Straight Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC and graduated in September 2006. However, while I was in Chiropractic School, I obtained my certification in Fitness and Nutrition. I love all things HEALTH! Along with that I love teaching my children how to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Aside from spending time with my family, I love exercising, being outdoors, boating, and gardening.
Please feel free to ask me any questions. If you are already one of my patients- you know that I love helping you discover health and if you are not one of my patients yet— what are you waiting for?
