I accidentally became a doctor. I was set to go to business school, as I had pursued energy economics in college and worked for an energy consulting firm. I wanted to make the world a better place. We use energy, so why not produce and use it more efficiently. That how I saw I could help the world.
Until a very good friend’s life was was virtually saved by chiropractic. She had spent two years with horrific intestinal problems: she had uncontrollable bowels. She received diagnoses from a variety of practitioners: medical doctors to acupuncturists to nutritionists. Nobody could actually help her though. Until she saw a chiropractor.
Why a chiropractor for intestinal problems? Because nothing else was working. Chiropractic did, dramatically. No longer bed-ridden, she was back to teaching, traveling, and leading a very active life. When I saw the effect on her life, I had an epiphany. I wasn’t looking to change, but being a healthcare provider was my calling. I knew it at a gut level. I could help people, as I had always wanted, now personally and directly. And that passion still drives me today.
