It's funny because when people ask me why I became a chiropractor, I don't have this miraculous healing story that I was crumpled over and I couldn't walk and I got adjusted and everything, I could walk again and I was straight, or I had debilitating headaches and I couldn't go to school.
I don't have one of those stories, but I do have a story that I didn't choose chiropractic, it chose me.
I feel that very strongly because I was born and raised in Davenport, Iowa, and what a lot of people don't know is that Davenport, Iowa, is the birthplace of chiropractic.
There's one thing that I was being chosen for.
The second thing is right out of high school, I met someone who was going to the chiropractic college.
I was on a path to work with babies and be a nurse.
I always wanted to work with infants and babies and pregnant mommies, but my path was going to be different.
I didn't choose chiropractic, it chose me.
As I learned more about chiropractic through this person who I had met who was going to college, I knew that my path wasn't to be a nurse, it was actually to be a chiropractor, and specifically, it was to be a pediatric and prenatal chiropractor.
Every single day in my practice, I get to take care of pregnant mommies and babies and help them with so many things.
Those poor babies cannot communicate that they're uncomfortable.
They cannot communicate why their tummy hurts, so my job is to correct their little nervous systems and get them feeling better and functioning better, and growing to their optimum potential.
I didn't choose chiropractic, it chose me, and I could not be happier.
