Q. What did you do before you became a chiropractic student?

Q. How did you find your way to chiropractic?

Q. Is there something about the philosophy of chiropractic that appeals to you?

Q. What has been the most challenging part of your education so far?

A. English.

Q. What kind of chiropractic work would you like to do after graduation?

A. I'm going to join a group in New Jersey until I can set up my own practice. I'm interested in family practice, wellness, and palliative care.

Q. How is chiropractic evolving?

A. One thing I've seen is the important role chiropractors play in VA hospitals, treating active military and injured veterans. Chiropractors have earned huge respect there, including that of the surgeons.

Q. If you could tell prospective chiropractic students one thing, what would it be?

A. Become a chiropractor and you will change people's lives. And that will change yours.
