Colleagues, it's a pleasure and an honor to serve on the OCA Board of Directors. I love this profession and am grateful to be practicing for 23 years now. Not only do I get to serve the pubic by sharing the benefits of Chiropractic care, I am also grateful to serve you by teaching and traininf you staff with their initial Chiropractic Assistant Training. After being mentored by the late Dr. Janice Justice I took over her training program once she passed in 2016. I was raised on a farm in Colorado which taught me the benefits of living a simple and natural life. I also have three grandsons that I am always delighted to spend time with.
Hello OCA members -- I am serving on the Board of Directors because I have benefited frrom my OCA membership in many ways and want to give back and help guide and strengthen our profession with my mix of experience and energy I bring to the table. In my practice of nearly twelve years I have experienced many of the successes and challenges that affect so many of us. The most important thing going forward for the OCA, in my opinion, is to continue to increase our membership to include the vast majority of chiropractic physicians in Oregon. Our solidarity has grown now that we are one organization, but we need to add more members as there is strength in numbers. The bigger and more untied we are the stronger our voice in Salem and Washington DC. I am proud to be a chiropractic physician in Oregon. The OCA has provided many great educational opportunities and behind-the-scenes assisitance for us to practice the way we want to. I want to ensure that we continue to have those opportunities in the future.
