I grew up in the small rural farming community of Spencer, South Dakota, which later became better know as the town that almost blew away thanks to a devastating tornado. I am the oldest of three brothers-Casey, Grant and Garrett. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jennifer, who is the Director of Rehabilitative Services for Sanford Health Luverne. We have four children-Ethan (2004), Ephraim (2006), Elliana (2008) and Emmalynn (2010). They are the light of my life! We enjoy camping, wrestling and playing ball together as a family.
I completed my undergraduate studies at Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, South Dakota, graduating with Bachelor of Arts majors in Biology & History with minors in Chemistry & Business Administration.
I completed my graduate school work at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. I graduated with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in April 2004. While at NWHSU, I was blessed to serve as student body president and ambassador club president, and I traveled with the admissions and development teams.
Education of other health care providers and future chiropractic students is an area of special interest to me. I have given several talks to physical therapists and medical doctors educating them as to what chiropractic is and what the role of chiropractic, physical therapy and medicine should be in the 21st century of health care.
Jen and I believe in giving back to our community, which is why we started a scholarship at Central Lyon High School awarded to a senior interested in health care. I also live Lyon County Chiropractic's mission statement by serving on the Rock Rapids city council, being a past deacon at our church, a past Chamber board member, and serving as the Lyon County Republican Chairman.
In May 2004, Jen and I opened Lyon County Chiropractic here in Rock Rapids. We have been blessed since first opening as we simply love it here! The type and quality of people are two of the things we love most about our community. The Lord has truly blessed us, and we pray He continues to guides us!
