I was a patient before I became a doctor. After a wrestling injury to my lumbar spine, where I had shooting electrical pain down my leg, I thought my wrestling career was over. But, my chiropractor was able to get me to the state tournament, world team trials, and beyond where I wrestled in college. If it were not for that injury I probably would not ever have experienced the miracle of chiropractic care.
I completed my undergraduate degree at Highline Community College in Des Moines, Washington on a wrestling scholarship. Then, I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic West (PCCW) in San Jose, California where I earned my Doctorate of Chiropractic. While attending PCCW I took many hours of extracurricular chiropractic technique classes and was recognized for my work with the PCCW Sports Council. In addition, I have studied Diversified, Chiropractic Biophysics, Instrument adjusting, Gonstead, Thompson Drop, Cox Flexion Distraction just to name a few and many more techniques. I continue to stay up to date with the latest techniques and research through my continued education.
I believe the role of the modern chiropractor is to become an expert on wellness. I am committed to helping my patients, not only with the highest quality chiropractic care, but also with other aspects of health including posture, exercise, diet, flexibility and the psychology of getting and staying healthy. After getting my patients pain free and stable, I make sure that they understand what it takes to maintain their health and wellness. I focus on corrective care along with postural and spinal correction for long term relief. I am committed to helping patients receive the best chiropractic care.
I have worked with many athletes with numerous sports injuries. I enjoy giving back to the community and helping the athletes. I have patients from all age groups from young children to older adults. It's my privilege to help each person's unique health care condition.
In my free time I coach wrestling at Lake Stevens High school where my son wrestles for the state championship Vikings. I can be found at my son's high school football games and wrestling matches regularly with my wife. My other hobbies are reading, lifting weights, biking, running, and wrestling. My wife and I love to travel! Our favorite place is Italy and we are excited to explore more places across the world.
I look forward to helping your reach your Health care goals!
