Saginaw 8, Goodrich Quality Theaters! It had a scent during the winter months that was unlike any other. I still dream about it. It was the best of times, and when people puked when 3D movies came out it was the worst of times.
Who was the most influential person to you as a child?
Each point in my life was someone new and different. I have always harbored the idea that there is a something to learn from everyone. Each family member, friend, and stranger I have ever encountered has evoked an idea or way of thinking that is inspiring and worth listening to. David Foster Wallace’s commencement speech, This is Walter, is hands down the most influential idea of living that I have ever read. But, if I had to pick a constant person… growing up, my grandma was a part of a collection of strong, business-oriented, women who paved the path so girls could wear shorts in PE class, be on professional boards, and be an equal part of the workforce. I always find her to be a force of nature every day, a quality that was worth harnessing.
Why did you become a chiropractor?
My stepdad was in a terrible accident with no recovery; addiction to pain medications changes a person. I grew up watching someone’s life altered and ripped from them due to pain pills and dependence. I knew there had to be more for families than living by “the bottle.” I explored my options and landed here, providing individuals with the tools to heal and prevent.
What is one modern convenience you couldn’t live without?
My car, she is dirty and full, but has my whole heart.
What is your favorite place to visit?
I can’t pick one. I fall in love with every place I venture to. The Pacific Northwest never disappoints, even in the rain. Really any place I can hike to and marvel at the earth is my favorite.
What is your favorite way to spend your weekend?
It must start with coffee on a patio. It would consist of a lengthy trail hiked by a good group of friends leading to a secluded lake (where a sailboat would magically appear). The end of the weekend would end with gatherings around a bonfire.
