I am a wife and mother and have been married for 25 years. Family is a huge priority in my life, and nothing comes before them.
Health and Wellness is much more than just my profession as a chiropractor. It is my chosen lifestyle. Eating clean while prioritizing, balancing rest, and exercise is crucial to maintaining a life lived wide open!
Running is my favorite hobby and form of exercise. This year of 2019, I will be completing my 12th marathon altogether. At 52, I am in the best health of my life and surging forward. Inspiring my patients to defy the odds and dire health statistics is my passion. Come join me in my journey!
I graduated in 1992 from Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, Georgia, and completed my residency in Miami, Florida. I have been established in practice since 1993, and am a bilingual educator on the topics of health & wellness to both the American & Hispanic communities. I have extensive public speaking experience and have created a powerful lecture series entitled Every Body For Life.
Why I became a Chiropractor
Playing competitive softball growing up, I secretly suffered with lower back pain and severe menstrual issues. At that time I was told this pain was just part of being a woman. No one understood that the overall pain I was experiencing was affecting more than just my physical well-being. It was having an impact on my social, mental and emotional life. It was not until I suffered a severe softball collision that my parents took me to see my first chiropractor. The relief of my lower back pain was an expected outcome. However, the resolution of my severe menstrual issues was above my expectations. The true bonus was the overall improvement of my physical performance on the softball field. Needless to say, it was this experience that shaped the course of my life I walk today, both personally and professionally.
What is my approach?
It is my goal to share my strategy, passion and expertise of how to live a healthy and purposeful life filled with endless possibilities and abundant health from a holistic standpoint. My chiropractic approach to Total Natural Health focuses on two key elements, a healthy and fully functioning Nervous System and spinal column. These in conjunction with other elements such as eating a holistic diet, daily physical activity, and positive thinking contribute to maximizing your body's potential. Total Natural Health is about removing limitations and developing gradual, sustainable life enhancing habits that are easy to implement and lead to a more vibrant you! By targeting the influencers "MFTP's", (Mothers, Fathers, Teachers, and Preachers) we can change the attitudes, awareness, behavior, and overall direction of health in the State of Alabama.
Where am I heading?
It has always been my dream to open a Chiropractic Community Wellness Center where families can come and experience Total Natural Health first hand. A place that can be seen as a safe haven for adults, families and children to come and participate in activities that will allow them to incorporate healthy habits into their daily lives and build their own wellness future. A place where one can identify where they are with their health and lifestyle choices. By utilizing chiropractic principles and wellness lifestyle education, we can guide individuals to maximize their God given potential of being the best individual possible. It is important to realize, unless we look at our health from a different point of view, we will continue to repeat the past in our future.
