First Job: I worked at Smoothie King for three years while I was in high school. It started out as a summer job. After I was promoted to shift leader I held a lot of responsibility and pride in how our store operated.
Who was the most influential person to you as a child?
My dad is definitely my rock. I don’t make any big decisions without consulting him first. He showed me what it truly means to work hard and run a successful business. I learned a lot from him, including how important it is to put God and family first. He always encourages me to take risks and follow my heart.
Why did you become a chiropractor?
I have wanted to be a doctor since I was six years old. I have a strong desire to help people reach their full potential. That comes from the fact that I have high expectations for myself, and I always strive to do my best. I enjoyed being the captain of my high school varsity track and cross country team. I also ran marathons in college. While I was running competitively, I learned a lot about athletic training, nutrition, and sports performance. I completed an internship in strength and conditioning at Lindenwood University. I wanted a career that would challenge me and encourage me to make a difference in my community. For me, being a chiropractor means I have nearly unlimited methods to help people reach their goals naturally.
What is one modern convenience you couldn’t live without?
I couldn’t live without clean drinking water. I go through several bottles of pure drinking water each day.
What is your favorite place to visit?
I absolutely love to visit the Rocky Mountains. I especially like Estes Park, Colorado. My family and I hiked Longs Peak when I was in college. It was the most serene place I have explored.
What is your favorite way to spend your weekend?
I love to spend a weekend on the lake with my family and friends. I live less than an hour away from my family’s cabin at Table Rock Lake. You can find me at the lake going swimming, water skiing, or fishing just about every weekend!
Where do you like to volunteer your time?
I enjoy volunteering at Lift Up Springfield. It’s a great way for me to show people who otherwise wouldn’t have access to a chiropractor how much we can do for them. The patients get a lot out of our work and it’s very fulfilling to see them get healthy.
