Doctor's Background I was born and raised on a farm in southern Illinois. I went to Meridian High School where I was very active in basketball and baseball and graduated with high honors. From there I went to Shawnee College and played baseball for two years. After repeated shoulder injuries, I decided to see a chiropractor for help, to avoid surgery, with much success. So much success, that I decided to become a chiropractor. After I graduated, I moved to Louisville KY to train under a group of chiropractors for one year and then I moved to Pekin IL, where I have been since June 7, 1999. My office has a very well trained staff with a very friendly atmosphere and we are proud to say that we have treated over 16,000 patients in Pekin and the surrounding areas.
