Why Chiropractic and not another area of practice? 

While I was in pharmacy school I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. As a result of the accident I suffered from daily headaches. After other forms of medical treatment failed to relieve my pain I was advised by a friend to try chiropractic treatment. After my first adjustment I was pain free. It was then that I knew this was the area of practice for me. 


What do you enjoy most in your work? 

I enjoy helping people feel better. Also, I enjoy educating them and helping them understand that sometimes even small changes can greatly improve their quality of life.


What do you like to do in your spare time? 

I really enjoy fishing, hiking, and above all spending time with my family.

I was born and raised in Ventura, California until our move to Oklahoma in my mid-teens. From there I have lived in a few different places which was great, being able to experience different cultures. In 2017, I moved to beautiful NWA and knew this was the place I wanted to be. 

I knew my calling in life was to help people so when I started researching massage therapy, I was hooked. I received my Massage Therapy license from Clary Sage College in Tulsa, OK. I am actively licensed in both Arkansas and Oklahoma. With my passion and skills, I currently perform Therapeutic, Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Hot Stone Massage.
