Wanting to be a doctor was definitely a life long goal of mine. I completed high school in Zambia and moved to the United States in search of a tertiary education with a clear vision of wanting to be in the healthcare field so I could help people. I enrolled at the University of Kentucky with the intention of being a pharmacist and quickly realized that wasn’t the path for me. I got a degree (B.S.) in Biology from the University of Kentucky in 2001.
During those four years, I learned that the allopathic/traditional model of healthcare delivery wasn’t appealing to me. After graduating and contemplating what I needed to do next, I discovered the Chiropractic profession and decided to make yet another move to Marietta, Georgia, so that I could enroll at Life University. While studying the art, science, and philosophy of Chiropractic at Life University, I began to realize that this vitalistic healthcare model made sense to me since it was encompassing the person as a whole and addressing dysfunction rather than individual symptoms.
I graduated from Life University in June 2005 with honors (Magna Cum Laude). I have had the privilege of being a practicing Chiropractor for 15 years now. I didn’t quite grasp the magnitude of what Chiropractic can do until I started practicing and witnessing peoples’ health being transformed. I choose to practice the Activator method of adjusting and saw what gentle, precise care could do. I further enhanced my skills by doing postgraduate work in Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care, and I am board-certified to do the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique (B.C.A.O).
The Atlas Orthogonal method of adjusting really elevated the clinical outcomes for my patients, and I could see major improvements in their health due to a vast reduction of internal nervous system stress. Watching peoples’ health being restored in a safe, gentle, effective manner is a very rewarding and fulfilling experience for me. This is not a privilege I take lightly. I am honored to be a facilitator to help individuals regain a sense of well being. True wealth, after all, is a sense of optimal health in mind, body, and spirit. This is the ultimate vision I hold for all my practice members.
When I am not pursuing my passion in the clinic watching peoples’ health transform, I like to spend time out in nature soaking in the sun rays, watching the raindrops, listening to the ocean, seeing the magnificence of the mountain ranges. (Travel and adventure is good for the soul). Gardening is a love of mine, and taking seeds and watching them transform into plants bearing produce brings me immense happiness. There is nothing like reading a good book and letting it transport you into another world.
I am always seeking to grow as an individual so I can continue to be the optimal facilitator for all those I have the honor of working with.
