My Chiropractic story began 25 years ago when I first sought care after giving birth to my daughter. I quickly felt the benefits of Chiropractic care not only for pain relief but also for keeping fit and staying healthy and well. In Colorado, where I’m from, people routinely see Chiropractors for "Wellness Care" rather than "Pain Care", so it’s great that I can work somewhere that shares this philosophy. I know the reason I can enjoy all the activities I do is due to my consistent care, so I'm glad I discovered it so early.
Having received treatment for a shoulder injury, I actually approached the staff about becoming a part of the team after seeing firsthand the kind of care that they offered. Being a part of this team means the world to me and I am so proud of the support we give our patients. Each day at "work" I get to meet and help so many people, many of whom have now become friends. It's exciting to see the positive changes in their health and that of their families as they progress through care.
Outside work I lead a very active life and enjoy skiing, yoga, weight training, motorcycle touring and much more. Given how many members of the team have dogs I have also become the resident team dog sitter.
I came across chiropractic care through my love of horses, whilst studying Equine Science at university. The first time I was adjusted was at a show-jumping competition. I was suffering a lot with my neck at the time after a heavy fall from a horse. Having watched the horses have their adjustment, I then had mine and have been a massive fan ever since.
I had been a patient at Care for Health for over 15years before the opportunity came up to become part of the team. I enjoy sharing all the benefits of chiropractic with the patients and watching as they progress though their care plan. I have a real interest in holistic wellness and along with this a love to cook fresh nourishing meals. I love practicing yoga and also support in the management of a Cornwall yoga retreat a few times per year.
I live in Witley with my husband, two daughters and beautiful Labrador Molly. I’m always spending time out in the fresh air; either on family walks with Molly, running or mountain biking.
As a child I suffered with intermittent back problems since having a growth spurt at around the age of 10. After trying every treatment going I finally stumbled across Chiropractic care and that is where my love of getting regular adjustments began!
I have always worked in the health and wellbeing industry so as soon as a position became available at Care for Health I was keen to jump on board.
The best things about my job are working alongside the team. We work hard but also have a lot of laughs together! It’s also an incredibly rewarding the job - seeing the changes that we make to people’s lives every day.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, two daughters and our border terrier who we love taking for long walks particularly around beautiful surrey or to the beach. I am also a big Pilates fan and find it great for my mental health as well as physical health.
