The Doctor of Chiropractic degree received from Cleveland Chiropractic College, now known as Cleveland University-Kansas City, empowered me to create a life of independence and confidence, both professionally and financially. Many years ago, I was homeless without a high school education. With the education that I received at Cleveland, I was able to change the direction of my life forever. I have used my degree to teach at schools and other colleges. I have grown a chiropractic/natural wellness practice from the ground up with the skills obtained during school, but more from the camaraderie that comes from knowing other chiropractors who have already paved the road before us. It is a blessing to come back to the University for continuing education, and other events that build friendships with other doctors.
