`Healers heal most effectively when they help empower people to identify and change what is disturbing their innate health.` -Dean Ornish, M.D.

I have always liked to work with my hands. When I was a little girl, I would spend many happy hours watching Grandpa at his workbench; in his strong, skillful hands a piece of cherry wood became a beautiful candlestick or chair right before my eyes. Soon, to my mother's distress, I applied what Grandpa taught me about tools to our household appliances, tinkering until I determined what made them tick. In high school and college, I was drawn to physics and biology because I wanted to learn about how the larger world works.

As a doctor of chiropractic, I use my hands and my investigative nature in concert to serve the health of my patients.

Chiropractic healing is as much an art as it is a science. Chiropractors view the body as a whole- interdependent upon all of its components and its environment. When a patient describes a pain or problem, I try to learn how this event relates to their life-style, work and personality. To treat a patient, the doctor must first know the person. It is only then that doctor and patient can work together for the best possible outcome.

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Pittsburgh and completed my doctoral studies at the National College of Chiropractic in Chicago. Post graduate training in acupuncture and applied kinesiology has enabled me to employ effective alternative methods in evaluating a patient's condition over and above the traditional examination and diagnostic tests. I work with my patients utilizing specific manual manipulation, soft tissue therapy, applied kinesiology techniques, dietary recommendations and specific exercise techniques.

I have practiced in Media since 1986. Children that I treated as ten-year-olds are now in married with children of their own. I have enjoyed watching my patients moving along in their lives and have gained great satisfaction in providing long-term care for them.
