Why I became a Gonstead Chiropractor
I grew up in Wausau, Wisconsin and then attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Science & Dietetics. My whole life, I have been engaged in a healthy lifestyle – emphasizing wholesome nutrition, active pursuits, strong friendships, and positivity.
I have always believed that everyone is born with the right to express health to enjoy better quality of life and relationships. I first became aware of chiropractic from life experiences when I was 12 years old. At this age, chiropractic helped my mother to better adapt to her situation to maximize her quality of life during her three-year battle with terminal pancreatic cancer. Since then, I knew that I wanted to devote my life to leading people to optimal health, using the gentlest interventions available.
After I finished my dietetics degree and then interned for seven months in Germany, I was the cook at an organic food store. At this physically-demanding job, I experienced back problems and sought care from a chiropractor, which helped immensely! After marked improvement, I learned how chiropractic was unique from every other healthcare profession, focusing on health, whereas the US healthcare system focuses on disease. After experiencing chiropractic as a patient, I wanted to help others as I have been! I started chiropractic school at Palmer early in 2015, interned in three Gonstead chiropractic offices, and graduated in June 2018. One week after graduating, I went on a Chiropractic Mission Trip to Haiti and adjusted over 700 people in 7 days in very diverse settings. Now I am thrilled to share the special gift of chiropractic with the Berlin community!
Optimal health is only present when there is constant adaptation mediated by our nervous system. We live our lives through our nervous system: the brain, spinal cord and nerves. The connection between every aspect of our body and surroundings to our brain is the spine, through which the spinal cord and peripheral nerves pass, and nerve pressure created by misaligned vertebra, or subluxation, can hinder the body’s ability to adapt and maintain homeostasis (balance). Chiropractic care is much more than getting rid of your neck and back pain, you will discover. Using the scientific five-part analysis of the Gonstead System of Chiropractic, I will locate and correct the misaligned bones to relieve subluxations (pinched nerves) and let the body heal to its maximum capacity. From newborns to Great-Grandparents, I am eager and passionate to share Gonstead Chiropractic with people of all ages!

Why I am a Doctor of Chiropractic
“Because I honor the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy. Because I desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope. Because I choose to care for the patient with the disease, not the disease. Because I wish to assist rather than intrude; to free rather than control. Because I seek to correct the cause, not its effect. Because I know doctors do not heal, only the body can heal itself. Because I have been called to serve others. Because I want to make a difference. Because every day I get to witness miracles. Because I know it is right.”
