Chiropractic Story: Albuquerque Chiropractor

September 23, 2015

People ask me how long I have been a Chiropractor and  what led me to decide to be a Chiropractor.  I would like to share my story in this blog post and include it in our website under the FAQ section.

I have been in practice in Albuquerque, NM for approximately 19 years since graduating Chiropractic College in 1996. I am now 50 but my story in this field began when I was just 22 years old. After my first degree, I secured a position in a Chiropractic Clinic (Family Chiropractic) in El Paso, Texas. It was there that I worked and excelled in all aspects of the Chiropractic Clinic from the ground up. I was mentored, and eventually encouraged to attend Chiropractic College by the two Chiropractic owners at Family Chiropractic. They helped me believe in myself, and see that I was an intelligent hard worker who had an energy of service. I was encouraged by my employers to seriously consider Chiropractic as a profession. So along with their encouragement, and the belief and help of those around me that loved me, I returned to University and began to take Science classes for the first time. I excelled in Anatomy and loved the Sciences!. I was like a duck in water…I finally found my fit! and it was one of the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Over time, I continuned to work full time at Family Chiropractic while taking courses to prepare for the required prerequisite Science courses needed to enter Chiropractic College. Finally, at 26 years old I moved to Dallas and matriculated full-time at Parker Chiropractic College. Soon after graduation in 1996 with a bachelors degree in Anatomy, and Doctor of Chiropractic Degree, I moved to New Mexico where I have been in private practice ever since. I am truly grateful for the encouragement of people who believed in me when I needed it most. This is the reason I try to see the gifts in others, and encourage young people wherever possible. I am thankful for this profession, and eternally grateful for those who helped me find my personal path.
