I think I’ve always been aware of what D.D. and B.J. Palmer termed “universal intelligence.” And somehow I understood the concept of “innate intelligence” as well. Imagine the wonder and excitement I felt when I came to understand that the purpose/goal of chiropractic is to remove the interference that occurs in the nervous system due to subluxations.
Imagine the thrill I felt when I learned that I could be taught to correct vertebral subluxations and thus participate in the healing and maintenance of the body in a most natural way! To connect with Sherman College and this concept was what I had been searching for!
And so, here I am! Truly fulfilling my dream. It’s a large and sometimes daunting task but never, ever, have I looked back and thought there was another path for me.
I am what some would call a “non-traditional student.” Along with helping my husband build an architectural practice in New England, I have also had a previous career of teaching Montessori preschool. Fondly I remember the many important life lessons learned and the many children taught and raised.
Yet, I will always say that my most important job has been as a mother. Proudly I can say that I have one son attending Sherman along with me, one son pursuing his Bachelor of Science degree in physics in Maine and a young daughter in 4th grade here in Spartanburg. My husband remains in Boston working as an architect, building schools.
Chiropractic is not just a profession. It is an art, science and philosophy. Chiropractic is a lifestyle, one that is good for you and me!
