I want to start out by letting you know a little about me: I am an active person who loves to golf, bowl, and workout in my spare time. I grew up in Western Michigan and have always loved sports!! I am a huge Detroit Red Wings fan, Detroit Tigers fan, and a die-hard San Francisco 49ers fan!!
But enough about that... Let me explain why I am thrilled about the opportunity to serve Comstock Park and the surrounding areas as your family chiropractor. My chiropractic journey started back when I was in eighth grade and had to choose a profession to write a research paper on. Because a friend of my family, Dr. John Wallace, was a Chiropractor in my hometown, I chose to write my paper on chiropractic. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but I now firmly believe that this happened for a reason: Chiropractic definitely chose me. As I moved forward to high school at Mona Shores High, I continued to have an interest in science, the human body, and working with people. Because I was very active in high school, playing three sports, I knew the importance of living an active and healthy lifestyle.
After high school, I enrolled in undergraduate school at Grand Valley State University, receiving my Bachelor's Degree in Health Science in 2005. Around that time, I attended a Homecoming event as a Prospective Student at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa. I knew immediately after attending that I wanted to be a chiropractor. All of the students and Doctors of Chiropractic had a passion for their lives unlike anything I had ever seen. I agreed with the philosophy behind chiropractic that the human body functions at its highest potential without any outside interference.
Before long, in October of 2006, I was living out my dream of becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic at Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa. In February of 2010, I graduated with honors, and most importantly, a different outlook on life. While at school, I started to receive chiropractic adjustments regularly, exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, and think positively. I lost 30 pounds from the time I started school, to the time I graduated 3 and a half years later! I noticed that I was consistently happier and healthier and this had a direct impact on all of those around me. I was living the Chiropractic lifestyle and that is why I am now so genuinely passionate about doing what I do.
Chiropractic has allowed me to have an impact on those around me that I never imagined would be possible! During my last year at school, I was lucky enough to be selected to travel to Vietnam on a Clinic Abroad experience where I went and gave Chiropractic care to thousands of people who had never received any form of healthcare in their lives. It was a once in a lifetime, inspiring experience for me. After graduation, I have been blessed to work in some of the best family and wellness practices in the world as far as I am concerned: I first interned with Dr. Kenny Harless at Harless Family Chiropractic in Dundee, Michigan. After interning, I worked at Beacom Family Chiropractic in Whitehall, Michigan, before moving to the suburbs of Chicago in late 2010. It was there that I continued to gain invaluable experience as an Associate at Priority Health Chiropractic in Yorkville, Illinois, through December of 2011. From there, I began working with, and found a great mentor in, Dr. Brad Pins at Pins Family Chiropractic in Naperville, Illinois. Learning from one of the best family chiropractors, my year with Dr. Brad further built a passion in me to give chiropractic care to families and people of all ages. All of my previous experiences led me to Southwest Florida where I co-founded and started Estero Family Chiropractic with my Chiropractic College roommate and one of my best friends, Dr. Larry Wallen. We built a very successful family practice over three years and I will forever cherish my time in Florida. While down South, I married my amazing wife Kali, who is also from Muskegon. In hopes of starting a family of our own, we wanted to be closer to our families, which brought us home to West Michigan.
I have seen patients ranging from one day old to ninety plus years of age. The greatest reward I can ever receive is gaining the trust of a mother and a father, allowing me to care for their newborn or young child. I pride myself on giving the best care possible to families and people of all ages because I have seen, first hand, the amazing benefits that Chiropractic has to offer.
