Meet Our Team

I grew up in the Chicagoland area and attended Winona State University where I majored in Biology and played on the softball team (2002-2006). After graduating from Winona State, I started at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA and received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2010. I worked in two very successful practices in Iowa after graduating gaining a wealth of knowledge in chiropractic, sports injuries, nutrition, and acupuncture.  I am so happy to be back in this area, and to give back to the community and people that were such a large part of my wonderful experience here in Winona.  When I am not here at Infinity, you’ll find me busy keeping up with my daughter Zoey.  I also enjoy being active outdoors, sports, yoga, cooking, movies, and spending time with friends and family.

When I chose to become a chiropractor I had two goals in mind. To utilize my education and talents to be the best chiropractor I could and to take care of my patients with the same compassion and integrity I’d use with my own family. I believe that health is a gift not an entitlement. I also believe that our body has an innate ability to be healthy when it is taken care of and has the ability to heal from many injuries when properly treated and rehabilitated. I assist all my patients in obtaining these goals, to be healthy and absent of pain and injury.
