I am a small town Midwest girl, born and raised in Troy, Missouri. My passion for health and wellness began as a teen, when I decided to dig for the root cause of my lifelong digestive issues. This time in my life caused me to develop a passion for health and wellness rooted in a holistic view of the body. I continued learning about natural physiology and its functioning the way God intended. I became determined to live a cleaner lifestyle, which led me to start making and selling my own clean beauty and personal products in high school and college. My desire to be a part of the holistic healthcare solution led me to pursue Chiropractic as a career.
Throughout my time pursuing my doctorate and extracurricular training in acupuncture and functional medicine, I, like so many women feeling the pressure of high achievements, found myself suffering from chronic stress, adrenal insufficiency, hormone imbalance, hypothyroidism, and fatigue. I finished my academic career in, what I felt was a completely different body than what I began with, and this led me to develop my passion to help other women recover from burn out and honor their feminine physiology.
I attended Williams Baptist University in Walnut Ridge, AR, before transferring to Logan University to complete both my Bachelor of Science degree in Life Sciences, and my Doctorate in Chiropractic.
During my time at Logan University, I completed multiple additional hours of education outside of my Doctoral course work. I have completed training in Functional Medicine, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Sacro-Occipital Technique, Pregnancy & Pediatric Chiropractic Care, Webster Technique, and the McKenzie Technique.
I opened my dream practice, Abide Functional Wellness, in June of 2022, where I serve clients in-person in Shawnee, KS, inside Your Wellness Connection, and also virtually.
My incredibly supportive husband Graham, a college wrestling coach, and I currently live in Leawood, KS with our Dane-Shepherd mix, Gus, and enjoy serving in our church together, traveling, and visiting the amazing coffee shops and restaurant patios in the Kansas City area when it’s not wrestling season!
