My first experience with chiropractic was very early on. I couldn’t even say 'chiropractic' yet, much less, knew what it was. I was only two, and like most that age, I was a wild heathen and I basically enjoyed doing anything my parents told me not to do. So jumping on the furniture and the bed was just one of those activities. One day while jumping on the bed I happened to fall off and consequently broke my left leg. Again, being a little 'Dennis the Menace' and thinking lightning wouldn’t strike twice, I decided while still in a cast, to jump on the bed again. And as a result, fell off the bed a second time… and yes, broke my other leg. So now being a two-year-old with two broken legs, both in casts all the way up, my dad decided it would be wise for me to see his chiropractor.
I was born and raised in New Mexico with holistic natural approaches from the time that I was a child. My grandfather started practicing Chiropractic in New Mexico in the early 1950’s with my father joining him when he graduated in the 70’s. I am a third generation Palmer of Chiropractic graduate, and it is easy to see that chiropractic has always been a part of my life. I played sports throughout my early school years and was fortunate enough to earn scholarships and play softball at the collegiate level. Growing up in a family of Chiropractors, I was adjusted regularly while playing sports and being active. I was blessed with chiropractic care my whole life and I started seeing that many of my teammates dealt with various injuries that I did not get while playing. I began my own education process in chiropractic and quickly realized why my teammates were dealing with those injuries. The chiropractic care that I was receiving was the key to understanding why those around me were having more injuries and I wasn’t. At this point, I realized how awesome it is that one can help someone naturally with their own hands and have an active career doing it, so I decided to follow in my family’s’ footsteps of becoming a Chiropractor.
