Throughout high school, I played mostly contact sports and had several injuries. While I didn’t have lasting pain, I began to notice that my upper back was always tight and uncomfortable. I discovered that if I leaned back over a chair that I could get it to “crack” which intuitively felt good. However the relief was only temporary. During college, I had finally my first exposure to chiropractic. Before that I had never even heard the word. After getting adjusted for a short period of time, I began to notice the chronic tightness disappeared and that I could no-longer “crack” my own back.
After graduating from High School in Rochester Hills, Michigan, I studied physiology at Michigan State University and then enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic. It was during the Fall of my Freshman year at Michigan State that I had Biology 101. I did exceptionally well in the class and it was then that I realized maybe I could consider a career in the Health and Sciences. It just so happened that I was simultaneously introduced to chiropractic and that is where it all began.
My interest in Health and Fitness developed as an athlete at an early age. I was raised in a family who enjoyed eating healthy and being physically active, it was truly a great foundation for a lifetime of healthy living. After personally benefiting from chiropractic, I quickly set my career goals on being a chiropractor and the rest is history.
I would love to introduce you to the healing that chiropractic care can provide. Contact our office to learn more!
My father was a 1958 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic. The philosophy was a part of my life from the beginning. Unfortunately I lost my father at an early age, to a motor vehicle accident. But his influence on my family remained strong.
I grew up in West Burlington, Iowa and graduated from high school in 1983. Afterwards, I took a few years off to work and married my high school sweet heart, Laura. I eventually returned to night school at the local community college and graduated with an associate degree in biology. I received my Doctorate in Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in October, 1994.
Through connections that I made as a student at Palmer College, I was offered a position with a chiropractor in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, an opportunity that lead me to creating a partnership in Latrobe.
On a Personal Note…
My wife Laura and I have five sons. Our oldest Colton, is studying to be a chiropractor while Brock will soon graduate from Saint Vincent College before entering the Marine Corps as an officer. Our middle child, Drake, is attending Saint Vincent College and intends on teaching history. Ian is in his senior year of high school and has enrolled in the Marine Corps while the youngest, Quinton, is simply enjoying the life of a high school student athlete, playing football and wrestling. In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors. My favorite activities are: hunting, fishing, golf, and baseball.
