The reason I became a chiropractor was due directly to the events of September 11, 2001. I was a high school teacher encouraging students to use that pivotal moment in the history of the world to make decisions that would radically improve humanity. As I reflected on that, I realized I was helping a lot of people as a teacher, but I wanted to have an even greater impact. I decided to try to help people feel better each day and by doing so that would be my way of being the change that I wanted to see in the world. As a chiropractor, I desire to relieve the pain and anguish of one so that they may be more of a blessing to the many that they connect with on a daily basis.
When I eulogized my brother, I told hundreds of people that when he repaired something for them or made something for them that it was his way of saying I love you. While that is true, he also did those things because it was basically like breathing for him. If he didn’t do it, then it was like not getting enough air. I understand just what that is like. For me, it is when I get to help in the healing process by touching the problem and offering a precise correction. Every day I get to tell the people I encounter that I love them through my hands-on approach to healing. It makes every workday invigorating, and I am so grateful that people allow me to receive such fulfillment as I try to give maximum effort and expertise to alleviate their condition and return them to the exceptional person that they long to be.
