I have always been an active and competitive person. Growing up, I competed in the American Quarter Horse Association for 4 years. Through high school and college, I was a member of dance teams, which provided me with experiences competing on a national and local level, as well as being involved in the basketball spirit squad and local community appearances and charity events. I coached the North Georgia College and State University dance team for 2 years after that. I also ran the 400 and 4×4 events in track for a few years in high school. I currently train and compete as a CrossFit athlete at OPEX Leander.
After graduating with my Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise and Sport Science from North Georgia College and State University in 2009, I moved to Portland, Oregon to attend University of Western States, where I earned a second Bachelor of Science in Biology, a Master’s in Exercise and Sport Science, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic Medicine. I am certified through the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and recently became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP). I am a certified Active Release Technique provider and I have experience with:
– Diversified technique – Functional Movement Screens
– SFMA – Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue
– Kinesiology taping – FAKTR
– Activator technique – Applied Kinesiology
I worked for 3 years in different physical therapy offices and environments and 2 years in sports and conditioning programs, including an internship with the University of Texas Football Strength and Conditioning program. I have honed my skills as a Sports Medicine Chiropractor by working with athletes from a myriad of disciplines, including but not limited to: football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, rugby, running, swimming, handball, rodeo, dance and CrossFit.
My practice is built around patient-centered care, functional rehabilitation and providing exceptional chiropractic treatment. In addition to my passion for sports medicine and chiropractic, the experience I have with a large variety of musculoskeletal conditions and types of sports, sets me apart from other health care providers.
