Dr. Ryan Simpson

Class of 2017

My journey to become a chiropractor started while cleaning wrestling mats with Dr. Joey Vrana ‘10. He suggested chiropractic care to help resolve my daughter’s chronic ear infections. That conversation changed my life.

Over the next two years, my family started receiving chiropractic care; the benefits were undeniable. I became interested in how chiropractic adjustments allow the body to heal itself, and was inspired to learn more. After dining one evening with Dr. Vrana and his wife Dr. Devin Vrana ’10, I realized that I needed to become a chiropractor.

I’m a military veteran, and at the time, I was working for the VA in Wichita, Kan. as a rating specialist. I felt drawn to a college where students are devoted to making health care accessible. Within months of my dinner with the Vranas, I enrolled as a student at Cleveland University-Kansas City.
