When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I decided to start working with animals last year during my Chiropractic internship.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? My first dog, Charli (miniature golden retriever), influenced me the most. I got her the day I moved out on my own and it was just me and her through that time in my life. I found out she had cancer at 5 y/o and that’s when I started researching natural, holistic, and raw medicine to heal her. She lived to just over 12 years old until she passed from hemangiosarcoma.
What animals do you currently own? I have a Golden Retriever, Case 3 y/o and a German Shepherd, Callie 1 y/o
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I stand out due to also being a Doctor of Chiropractic as well as having degrees in organic and biochemistry and medical science. I’ve also spent years working in human nutrition and supplementation.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? I love animals and working with the toughest cases involving disease, biochemistry, and biomechanics. I specialize at finding the root cause of problems and not just slapping a band-aid on things.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal health? There is no other career that can give you the same amount of satisfaction while making such a big difference than you can with animal health. This area is also extremely far behind the times as far as natural and holistic healing goes. The current health and nutrition recommendations available for animals is based on money and ease without regard for health. We can make such a huge difference by treating and educating others on these subjects.
