“I didn’t grow up going to the chiropractor. I now know how extremely beneficial chiropractic is because I have experienced it first hand in my own body, in the lives of my children, and every day in our office. Everyone needs a chiropractor. I’m just thankful I live and work with one.”
Susan is a St. James, MO native and an alumnus of Culver-Stockton College. With her background in education, she is passionate about educating our patients and community about the benefits of chiropractic and the difference it can make in their lives.
When Susan isn’t in the office she can most often be found chasing her husband down one of Missouri’s beautiful rivers acting as his ground crew with their son, Collin, during his paddling races. Susan loves to cook, dabbles in photography, enjoys the outdoors with her guys, loves to target shoot, is an avid world traveler enjoying many different countries and their cultures, and is happiest when she is on the beach. 🙂
