I was 15 years old performing a back flip at a gymnastics camp and landed awkwardly on my head and neck.  I couldn't move my neck very well after and it was pretty painful, but I could move my arms and legs, thus nobody was real concerned about spinal cord injury.  I was sent home and told to see a doctor when I could.  The next day, my parents took me to a local Chiropractor for the first time.  I walked in nervous but walked out of there that day with full range of motion and completely pain free.  I remember telling my mother as we left that was what I wanted to do.

On my journey through schooling, I considered different types of healthcare;  Medicine, Chiropractic, and Osteopathy.  As I researched the different philosophies and areas of focus, I came to the conclusion I would continue on to Chiropractic school.  Following graduation in the winter of 2000, I moved to Sioux Falls and opened up my first practice.  In the spring of 2002 I relocated my practice and opened up Natural Arts with my husband.

I love practicing and caring for my patients, and am fortunate enough to be able to do so in such a great community.   My husband and I feel blessed to be able to raise our five children in  Sioux Falls.

After suffering a knee injury playing high school football, I was sent to a Chiropractor for treatment and remember quite clearly seeing people literally limp into treatment rooms and leave upright and appearing fine.  I was fascinated how these doctors could provide people with such immediate relief.  That day I began looking into a career in chiropractic.  

Following graduate school in 2001, I began practicing in Sioux Falls and one year later, I opened Natural Arts Chiropractic & Acupuncture with my wife Tricia.  I love working with her and between the two of us, we cover A LOT of ground in terms of conditions we treat.  In fact, I have overcome ruptured discs in my neck and back without the need for surgery or never ending pain medications and have used these experiences to better serve my patients who have similar problems.

I have thoroughly enjoyed practicing in Sioux Falls.  It is such a great community and we have very good relationships with health care providers in so many areas.  One of the things I enjoy most is working together to break down old and unnecessary barriers between medicine and chiropractic so we can work together and provide patients with the most effective and efficient therapy for their specific problems.
