During my career I have worked closely with several stakeholders invested in social justice for our community with an emphasis surrounding homeless issues. I have a passion for making a positive difference in how our police officers interact with and effect the community. Priorities in life for me are to enjoy my time with family and leave things better than how I found it.”

Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine – The concept of neuroplasticity, or the ability of your brain to adapt and reorganize itself both physically and functionally, replaces the age-old belief that the adult brain was hard-wired after childhood development was complete. Neuroplasticity can be influenced by our simple day-to-day routines, or it can involve extraordinary, unconventional ideas that can completely alter the trajectory of one’s life.
