Meet the Doctor

When I was fifteen, I injured my neck lifting weights.  My parents thought I should visit the local chiropractor.  After an examination, he treated my lower back!  I was stunned, what did my lower back have to do with my neck pain? Besides that the pain went away.  Well I was impressed and had to learn more about this.  I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College and have been practicing in the Independence area for 20 years.

My holistic approach to patient care lead me to become certified in Acupuncture, studying with Dr. Zhengang Guo, a Master Herbalist and Acupuncturist, at the Chicago School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Acupuncture helps the body's own healing power and restores natural balance.

My husband Kirk and I have been married for 20 years and have two sons, Spencer and Jake and two dogs Cobe and Jasmine.  We enjoy spending time together as a  family which is getting harder to organize as they get older.  I give my whole family treatments on a monthly and as needed basis.  

I am constantly going to seminars and taking courses in the newest chiropractic and acupuncture techniques to further my knowledge and education.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, shopping and antiqueing.
