Her Personal Philosophy
From a very early age I have had four-legged family members and been involved in one horse sport or another ranging from foxhunting and eventing to finally having specialized in competitive dressage for the last 30 years or more. My extensive focus in dressage has given me a deep understanding and appreciation for rhythmical, balanced and symmetrical movement – the cornerstone of my sport of choice. Combining this knowledge with the in-depth schooling required to become a Doctor of Chiropractic and 23 years of practical experience lets me appreciate even more an animals required and necessary well moving body in connection to a well functioning nervous system that provides for overall well-being, health and optimal performance. I am excited to bring my chiropractic knowledge of hands on experience to my animal patients. A wise mentor once said “Always give your absolute best and you will always do well”. To this day I take pride in following that advice. I strive to provide excellence in service and always encourage communication and collaboration with all other health care providers and expect to continue building more professional relationships based on trust and excellence in service.
