I became aware of my desire to be a healer when I was 3 years old. I recall living in the backroads of an empty county, exploring what I deemed to be an unknown and wild terrain. I often brought dead salamanders or injured roadside wildlife home to mom for help in resuscitating. She was at a loss on how to heal my helpless patients, thus starting my journey in becoming a healer. Through the years I was always fascinated with life and biology. With a pre-medicine focus, I studied animals and insects in my undergraduate degree, ending up a biochemist and entomologist. In my zeal for life in the world and the unknown, I left home for world travel—starting in the country of India. Little did I know I was about to get an education and experience I hadn’t bargained for. My trip abruptly ended right before the camel safari, by a head-on car collision. I awoke in an unknown hospital, in a city I hadn’t heard of, with no one around. I learned that I had been a sole survivor, left in a coma for an unknown amount of time with only the clothes on my back. Talk about a journey for healing! This was a little more complicated than healing a salamander. My education for healing turned away from animals and to that of the human body. In that time I studied herbs, homoeopathy, vitamins, exercise, everything I could read about. Above all the herbs, vitamins and alternative medicine I had used to gain improved health, chiropractic care was the most powerful and restorative therapy in my healing experience. All at once, through this healing quest, the picture was being drawn for me: my purpose, my raison d’etre, the healer inside. I graduated from Northwestern Chiropractic College in 2013 with honors and a deep passion to heal and serve others. I am now complete and on the path to reaching my greatest potential, not just in the chiropractic profession, but through my inborn desire to be a healer.
