How did you decide to go into your field?
The decision to enter this field was a bit of a journey. I became passionate about natural medicine and exercise after losing my mother to cancer at a young age. I wanted to learn what caused these diseases and how to optimize the body. Working with developmentally disabled, autistic, and elderly individuals further solidified my desire to make a positive change in people’s lives through health. Initially aiming to become a physical therapist, I discovered evidence-based chiropractic through rugby teammates who had graduated from a chiropractic school. This field encompassed all my passions: manual therapy, physical therapy, and natural medicine. I am incredibly grateful to do what I love.
What makes you excited about your work?
Seeing people’s smiles after supporting them through their
healing journey. Also, to know that I’m helping communities
become healthier one person at a time warms my heart.
What makes you unique in your field?
Throughout most of my life, I have been actively engaged in
various sports such as track and field, basketball, snowboarding, rugby, white-water rafting, and surfing. Since middle school, I developed a deep passion for weight lifting and strength training, recognizing the significance of movement and proper physical maintenance for longevity. Also, I consider myself a Bridge Person, which is someone who can connect and empathize with a diverse range of individuals. I was fortunate enough to have an upbringing in two different cultures and experiences from living in various countries that have given me a deep understanding of many walks of life. Through these experiences, I have learned that the majority of us desire a good life, to be understood, and to be free from pain.
