I am returning to Jamaica for the week on my first chiropractic mission trip with spinal missions. I am traveling with a group of doctors and chiropractic students. We will be working in the local community to help those who do not normally have access to chiropractic care.

This is a very special trip for me, and one that carries so many memories from my love who passed in late july of this year, pictured to the right. We had both planned on returning to Jamaica to take our vows, and to go on this particular mission trip together.

This has been an extremely difficult year, in every aspect of my life, and I am so grateful to have made it through this year. It has truly shown me my strengths, and how many amazing and supportive people that I do have in my life. I have chosen to abandon certain unmentionable social sites to focus on my journey. As we grow, we abandon childish things, and focus our energies where they are truly needed as we mature and continue on our path.

This trip marks a new phase in my life. Surviving a painful loss of a loved one, gives you a new appreciation for life, and for the pursuit of health and well-being. I have learned so much in the past two years, from pre-DC to DC. The program at LIFE is intense and thorough, and I appreciate all of the challenges that I have faced and overcome thus far on this journey. I truly started learning when I arrived at LIFE. I look forward to continuing my second year in the DC program, and my third quarter in the masters program.

I was accepted into the masters program in June of this year for Postive Psychology, Life Coaching track. The timing of this added dual program was another blessing for me. Early into my first quarter in dual programs, I was the coachee, being coached through a very difficult grieving process. I am so grateful to have such amazing friends to take time out of their busy schedules to help get me through my most difficult times. I was immediately pleased with my decision to add the masters program to my curriculum after experiencing the true impact of life coaching.

I am finally to a place where I am ready to share my thoughts and my journey. I am grateful to be taking this trip to not only begin a new year, but a new phase in my life. Join me here as I continue my journey through chiropractic school.

my love…I am so grateful for the amazing times that we shared, and I am so blessed to have an eternal love. It’s comforting to know that you are always with me in spirit my love, watching over me and guiding me.

a warm welcome to clients, old friends and new…my deepest appreciation goes out to everyone who has touched my life, shared theirs, and enriched mine.

a special thanks to three chiropractors that introduced me to the world of chiropractic, and led me into a healthier state of wellness: Dr Veronica Collings, my first chiropractor, who first opened my eyes to the holistic world of healingDr Larry Segal, , a mentor throughout my massage career, who also started as a massage therapist, and Dr Alexander Jamieson, whom I’ve had the pleasure of working for the past 2 years, who also graduated at Life University.

thank you to my family, for always being supportive, of all of my many ventures.

this will be my main platform to update everyone on my progress throughout the next 4 years of school studying for my doctorate of chiropractic (DC) at Life University. I’ll share information as I learn and other wellness/health tips that I have learned over the years.
