My life as a chiropractor began in 1986 when I was accepted to the prestigious Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in Whittier, California. It is the most respected and challenging of all chiropractic colleges. Three and a half years later, I graduated and earned a D.C. degree and a license to practice in California. Prior education includes a B.A. in english and biology from the University of Rochester (1980).

After graduating from Rochester, I went to work as a cardiovascular technician at Columbia University's Presbyterian hospital in New York City. While at Columbia I was trained in cardiac physiology, EKG and anatomy. I also was hired as a lecturer for the Pritikin Better Health Program teaching diet and exercise throughout the New York metropolitan area.

Starting my chiropractic practice in 1989, I have remained in the same location ever since 712 D Street, Suite D, between 1st and 2nd streets in central San Rafael. I returned to the classroom in 1992, earning my certification as a sports physician after passing a rigorous exam, then another degree, C.C.S.P. (Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician). I am active in the Marin county chiropractic society and was elected president for two consecutive terms.

My community participation is central to my life in San Rafael. I am an active member of DART (Disaster Area Response Team) and am certified in advanced CPR. I live three blocks from my office in the Gerstle Park area so emergencies can be seen immediately. I am also fluent in spanish.
