Chiropractic called me to it. After graduating from Vassar College with a B.A. in geology I spent 3 years essentially avoiding going to grad. school for a masters degree. One morning lying in bed I let go of the idea of pursuing a career in geology or earth sciences and opened my mind to all possibilities. I realized that what I was naturally good at was healing touch, and what I was interested in was that connection with people's essence. And so on that morning I decided to become a chiropractor. Keep in mind I had never been to a chiropractor, nor did I have any idea I would have to pick up and move down to Hayward California from my comfortable home in Oregon.
When I first learned about the philosophy of chiropractic I knew why I was called to do this profession. As far as I am concerned I have one of the best jobs in the world. I get to spend my days helping people heal, to reconnect with their full potential, to live better lives.
