I was born in Milwaukee, WI. My family soon moved to Palm Springs where my grandfather was a Judge. When in high school I loved and participated in Team sports like swimming, track and field, tennis and was a part of the Varsity Cheerleading Squad. I loved academics and graduated at 16. I went to college in Palm Desert where I earned my degree with an emphasis in biochemistry. I continued my education at Los Angeles College of Chiropractic where my interest in sports and how the body worked during high performance movement blended together. After graduation moving back to Palm Springs and opening my practice, I gained further hands-on skills from a very experienced Chiropractor, whose father and grandfather had also been Chiropractors.

Not to let an opportunity pass, eventually in 1998 love brought me to Los Angeles. The demands of my family life – raising three children as a single parent, never undermined my determination and commitment to continue treating patients. However, I met the man of my dreams – today my second husband – and the children and I moved to share a new life with him. Now that all the children are mini-adults – I am back.
