Most of us might be afraid to live to 100 years old because of the fear of a decreased quality of life or living with aches and pains. But if we could feel good and still do the things we love to do like playing with our grandchildren, then I’m sure most of us would want to stick around. What we don’t realize is that arthritis is not inevitable. It can be avoided if we make the right choices now. We have the ability to age well despite our genetics. Healthy lifestyle choices are key to not only live well now but in our later years too. This class will pin point the major culprits contributing to bad health and illuminate the tiny tweaks you can make now to make huge changes to your elder years.

After graduating from University of Kansas in 2004 with a degree in psychology where I studied as a pre-med student, I drove to the bay area to earn my doctorate degree at Life Chiropractic College West.After graduating with honors in 2008 I received extended training in a specialized Chiropractic technique called NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association).
From California to Seattle, I began practicing as an associate doctor in Chiropractic offices around the Puget Sound. In 2014, I set out on a mission to run my own practice so I could offer the best care possible to my patients and create Live Well Spinal Care. 10 years of patient care has offered experience and insight that makes me even more passionate about my work as a NUCCA chiropractor.
At the beginning of 2018, I moved from Seattle to Wichita to be closer to family. I grew up in Wichita and attended Maize schools. Now that I'm back after 12 years away, I'm appreciating the sunshine and friendly culture here. At Opti-Life I teach core and strength training classes weekly. This fits right in with my passion to help people live a better life through healthy habits and strong bodies. In my spare time I enjoy cooking new and healthy recipes, growing fresh herbs and flowers, playing games and staying fit.
