Athletic & Training Background

While in high school, I played four years of varsity football, basketball, and baseball. I then decided to pursue a career in Athletic Training. I received my Athletic Training degree from Ohio State University, working primarily with their football and baseball teams. I then worked as a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer at Clemson University, working with their Track and Field and Football team. I then worked for the Buffalo Bills as an Athletic Trainer before deciding to pursue my Doctorate of Chiropractic.

Current Role Working with Athletes

I am the co-founder of Carolina Active Health Chiropractic, a chiropractic practice in Greenville, SC specializing in the active population. I am additionally the current team chiropractor for Clemson University.
