"How did you decide to become a chiropractor?" I get asked this question often. Well, being a patient is what inspired me to pursue the profession. When I was 19 years old, I was in a ski accident that left me with a severe concussion and whiplash in my neck and back. For over a year, I suffered from daily debilitating headaches. After undergoing vigorous medical testing and being prescribed numerous trials of medication with little relief, I decided to try seeing a chiropractor. It only took a matter of weeks of treatment and rehabilitation of my neck for my pain to fade. I was so inspired that after all the doctors I had worked with, it was my chiropractor who helped me get out of pain and back to feeling like myself again.
I graduated from St. Bonaventure University in Olean, NY in 2012 with a degree in psychology, and then earned my doctorate at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY in 2015. I've spent the last 7 years working in a multidisciplinary wellness center and my own practice in South Burlington, VT. In 2022, my daughter was born. Shortly thereafter, my family relocated to the Rochester, NY area. Learning how to navigate motherhood has been a journey. Although I have had years of experience treating women in pregnancy, I have a newfound passion for the postpartum recovery journey as well. I pride myself on being a lifelong learner and continue to educate myself within the perinatal field as an ICPA Webster Technique certified chiropractor.
When I started my first practice in Vermont in 2019, I wanted to create a space for patients to feel nurtured and driven in their health pursuits. I believe my role as a provider is to educate, support, and guide patients toward their goals.
Creating life takes two, but creating a village takes many. I hope to be a trusted resource for you throughout your perinatal journey, before and after baby.
