My health and fitness story:
As a soccer player, running for me was always a necessary evil. I was never good at distance running but it was part of training so I’d struggle through it. I started to appreciate the “me time” of running after grad school. Living in NYC and working a hectic schedule I started running for a mental break from the stress and hustle of life. I started obstacle course racing in 2011 and have continued to use running for both physical and mental therapy. I’ve enjoyed exploring the connection between the physical challenge of running and the journey it can provide to self-acceptance and confidence. My soccer career ended after 30 years but I continue to compete in OCR and qualified to run at the OCR World Championships in 2015 and again in 2019. I also recently started competing in ninja competitions (yes, like the show).
Part of being a chiropractor means evaluating a person’s mechanics in order to identify the cause of injury/break down. This translates well when working with athletes who are trying to improve performance by correcting mechanics and improving strength and mobility.
I really enjoy giving people a sense of accomplishment and building confidence. Showing people how to challenge what their body is capable of doing and give them the tools they need to meet their goals.
