Born and raised in Ellicott City, MD. I got into chiropractic after seeing the results my friends and family were having while under chiropractic care. And I really liked how I could affect others lives without the use of medication. I sustained an injury through sports and was prescribed pain medication and I didn’t like how it only helped my problem while I was taking the medication. I am passionate about helping people realize that they do not have to be on pain medication for the rest of their lives and being able to help people without the need for pharmaceuticals.
In my free time I really enjoy watching and playing sports, watching movies, traveling and trying out new restaurants. I really enjoying practicing in DC because we have a very vast and eclectic patient population so it's never the same treatments everyday. I love all the historic buildings and the history of DC. It's really awesome to be able to practice in the capital of the United States.
I went to Lynchburg College and received a bachelors of science degree in Athletic Training. I went to New York Chiropractic College for chiro school. After chiro school I was the head athletic training for the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) at Dundalk and then I was the head athletic trainer for the Baltimore Brigade; a professional arena football team. I am still a certified athletic trainer. I have a background in Flexion-Distraction, drop table, diversified, gonstead, kinesio tape (levels 1 & 2) and activator technique.

I decided to go to Chiropractic school some time after graduating from VCU with a BS of Psychology. I have always been inspired by the human mind. The innate force in all of us that makes us who we are. I did not know exactly what I wanted to do after graduation, I just knew that temping in Washington D.C. was not my calling. I moved to Dallas and started at Parker University after checking out a few schools and discovering the massive impact that Chiropractic has on people's lives. I decided that I would be able to study a wide variety of techniques and have a great foundation from which to build. After graduating I moved back home to Virginia to be closer to my family. I was fortunate enough to join Palmercare where we have a large network of clinics staffed by great doctors who I can learn from. I am excited to be able to serve my community and love that I get to practice in my hometown. My passions include yoga, rock climbing, and falconry.
