I didn’t have a miracle adjustment that made me want to become a chiropractor, no, instead it was the wise words of one of my mentors that made me decide that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. His name is Po Pomajzl and I was fortunate enough to shadow him at his practice in Grand Island, Nebraska when I was doing my undergraduate studies. He told me about a man named Clarence Gonstead and the miracles he had performed at his clinic in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Po went on and told me about cases at his clinic and the results he was able to achieve using the Gonstead System and instantly I knew that this is exactly what I was meant to do. I wanted to be able to provide that kind of service to others. The most amazing thing was that all these results were achieved without the use of prescription drugs. I wanted to show an already over prescribed and over medicated society that there is another way, a BETTER WAY, to be healthy.
I did my undergraduate studies at Central College in Pella, Iowa. There I majored in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. Along with my studies I played football for the Dutch and was an All-American defensive lineman. From Pella I went to Davenport, Iowa to study at Palmer College of Chiropractic the birthplace of the profession and the most prestigious chiropractic school in the world. I became very focused on the Gonstead System of chiropractic and involved in the Palmer Gonstead Club. Here I became an executive officer and taught technique, analysis, and philosophy to other students about this System. I continue to take advanced classes in the System and have more than 170 hours of extended training.
I’ve been married to my wife Amanda since 2008. We met at Central College and she moved to Davenport when I did and received her BSN from Saint Ambrose University. We love it here in central Iowa and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. We have three children a boy Tate and a girl Harper (who are twins) and another girl named Holland. We also have one dog named Lolo.
I enjoy keeping in shape and doing things outdoors. Health and wellness are very important to my family and me and that is why we all get adjusted regularly. We get checked weekly for signs of subluxation and my kids have been adjusted since theday they were born. I figure if I’m going to tell you to be healthy and live that kind of lifestyle I should do no less.
Now that you know about me, I would love the opportunity to meet you and discuss your health goals and how chiropractic fits into that equation. Give our office a call and we will take you towards that goal of living a healthy, more satisfying, pain free life.
