We all are dedicated to provide professional, loving service to all who trust us enough to come in. 😊
For me, Chiropractic is almost a spiritual thing. I know God is our creator, and he created an amazing, self healing body. I believe the power that made the body, heals the body. With Chiropractic we remove the interference, and reconnect the brain (neuroplasticity). The body heals when connected to the brain, it’s really that simple. I pray everyday for God to guide me to find and correct that interference on every single person I touch.
My Chiropractic story:
I come from a family that went to the Chiropractor. Starting with my Grandfather, Gmother and Dad and Mom, Aunts and Uncles, I’ve been adjusted since I was 5 years old. I never had major problems or sickness as a kid, and it’s funny how God works. You see, around 15 years old I had a problem of not knowing what I wanted to be. I loved working on cars, but found out real quick I didn’t love other people’s cars, LOL. I took some architect classes, but didn’t like that either. I would try to avoid career days because of the frustration. Well, one day I hurt my lower back lifting weights in football offseason. It was the first time I had a sustained pain. We went to our family Chiropractor, and after a few adjustments, he fixed me! I was amazed, and it was because of that pain that sparked an interest, and after more literature and explanation given by my Chiro., I decided to be a Chiropractor. One side note, I was severely injured at 19 years old in a car accident. My upper spine was twisted. I missed 2 weeks of college and 1 month of work because of neck pain and headaches. Once again, my Chiropractor, this time after several months fixed me! These 2 incidents, while painful, were Godsends for my direction in life.
I graduated from Port Neches- Groves in 1988 and completed pre med courses to fulfill chiropractic school prerequisites from Lamar University. I attended Texas Chiropractic college, and graduated with academic recognition in 1994. I completed 120 hour course on prenatal and pediatric chiropractic care from Life college in 1996 and earned a fellowship from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. I also completed 120 hour course on sports chiropractic from TCC in 1998 and earned the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician distinction. I’ve taken over 300 hours of Applied Kinesiology, and multiple courses in nutrition and natural healing.
My chiropractic journey started with a passion to help heal. It was during my undergraduate studies when I was first introduced to chiropractic, and saw the body's incredible potential to heal itself. When you restore communication between the brain and the body, the body is able to perform and behave as it innately knows how to do and desires to do. I love that there was a natural approach to pain and the overall function of the body.
I graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelors Degree of Science in Biology, then continued my studies at Texas Chiropractic College where I received my Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2013. With additional post-graduate training, I am also a board certified Acupuncturist, Activator certified, Graston Technique certified, and Webster Technique certified with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
A healthy nervous system is important for everyone, especially developing children. I believe that all children should have access to chiropractic care, even before birth. I couldn't image going through my pregnancy without getting regularly adjusted. I made sure that after my son Paxton was born he got his adjustment soon after. My wish is for all children to have the same great start at life, and for the whole family to be involved in chiropractic care so that everyone can function at their optimal potential.

I am excited to serve the “Golden Triangle”. I have lived in several states but this place will always be home. The doctors and staff here make you feel like family.
My education was a little disjointed (😊) Not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with my life, I joined the Marines one year out of high school. I was taking a few college courses and hurt my back. Although the chiropractor I went to in North Carolina was helpful was helpful, it was my brother David that knocked out the last of my pain with his muscle testing technique (while he was still an intern at Texas Chiropractic College). Impressed, I changed my classes and redirected them to chiropractic. I completed my enlistment in 1997, and graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in 2001.
Books, college, classes and seminars have left a great impression of the amazing abilities of the body. I realize that adjustments and nutrition can have profound effects on health. My intentions to serve our community with both of those services to the best of my ability. The internet is full of articles and opinions, I am here to use the research and help you feel better!

I began my journey in Chiropractic care when I was a freshman in high school. I was on a ski trip with my church and I fell and jammed my spine. It was very painful so, my parents called our family friend who was a chiropractor nearby for help! He did wonders for me with the pain! I have been seeing a chiropractor ever since! I recently became certified as a chiropractic assistant and I am very passionate about the healing art of chiropractic care! I am now pursing my dream to become a chiropractic doctor, and hope to come back and work as a doctor with this awesome team!
