When asked why he decided to join the Life West team, he replied, “I’ve learned over the years that no matter where we are in our life, no matter what type of schedule we currently have, there is always a way to make a difference in somebody’s life.” He added, “I remember reading BJ Palmer’s quote that changed my outlook instantly: ‘You never know how far reaching something you may think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.’ Simply put, it was my calling to help grow and develop a profession that will produce Doctors of Chiropractic that will make a positive difference for millions of people in the years to come.”
