I am a pacific northwest native who grew up just south of Portland, OR. After high school, I joined the Army where I spent five and a half years as a sniper and reconnaissance team leader in the 82nd airborne division. I served three combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq and am a proud graduate of Ranger School, Sniper School and Airborne School.
After I got out of the Army I began having recurring bouts of low back pain. I didn’t understand why it was happening to me, I was in great shape, physically active, and I thought I was doing all the right things. It wasn’t until I was in chiropractic school learning about movement patterns and principles of mobility vs stability that I could finally fix my own issues and be pain free.
Since I have personally experienced how much pain (especially low back pain) negatively impacts your life, I strive to bring the best care to my patients. My goal is to not only get my patients out of pain but give them the tools to keep it away!
How I Stay Moving:
Weight training, kettlebell training, CrossFit, running and chasing my 1 year old yellow lab all over the neighborhood!
