I was initially introduced to Chiropractic due to a low back injury I suffered while doing back squats in the gym when I was 16 y.o. I had sudden onset of severe low back pain that dropped me to the ground and I struggled to make it to my feet and safely drive myself back home. The following morning my father helped get me to a Chiropractic Clinic in Downtown Kirkland. I was bent over in pain and embarrassed as this was the first time in my life feeling vulnerable and debilitated. I had never seen a Chiropractor before and had no idea that this experience would profoundly impact my life.
I remember sitting down in the waiting room bent over to one side to find some pain relief and an elderly lady sitting next to me waiting for her appointment assured me that I will be ok, as I am in good care. She even let me take her appointment slot first. The doctor took x-rays of my lower back and showed me my spine on the developed x-ray film. He assured me that, despite the pain and spasm I was in, I didn’t have a serious problem. It was just a severe sprain/strain. I then received my first chiropractic adjustments which absolutely amazed me. I was able to stand up and walk out to the waiting room without assistance.
It was at that moment I decided I wanted to be a chiropractor, I wanted to help athletes and kind old ladies! I chose to attend Western States Chiropractic College and graduated in 1995. Upon graduation I began working in Kirkland WA, just blocks from where I grew up and graduated from High School. After a few months I bought the clinic and spent some 18 years in private practice.
Over the last 7 years I have been in Occupational Health working in a Multi-disciplined setting specializing in the treatment of on-the-job injuries. My focus has been on returning workers to full capacity and a more productive lifestyle as quickly as possible, while reducing the risk of re-injury through patient education and home exercise programs.
I have always enjoyed staying active and involved in sports. I especially enjoy mountain and road biking, swimming, running, working out in the gym and absorbing the beauty of the PNW while boating or hiking. I look forward to working with the wonderful multi-disciplined team here at VIDA and meeting all of the patients, hopefully there are a few kind old ladies in the bunch! If you are new to Chiropractic and possibly a little hesitant, I promise to answer all your questions and make it a comfortable and positive experience.
