As it was stated, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 33 years old. Though that alone does not define who I am, it was a life changing experience for myself, my husband, family and friends. Pre-cancer, I worked myself to exhaustion striving to fulfill what I thought was success as defined by our society's demands. Don't get me wrong, I had a blast doing what I found to be fun--throwing parties!! But the gift of a cancer diagnosis at such a young age revealed to me what really was important: my health and happiness.
Through alternative therapies, I was able to find relief from years of cancer treatments and surgeries. As of 2022, I am 10 years out from my diagnosis and I firmly feel that my success in that is due to the support of Chiropractic, Acupunture, Mental Health and Wellness work, Massage, and living a stress-less and happy life.
As I said, it does not define my life, though it is a large part of who I've become post-diagnosis. In my free time though I enjoy the simplicities of watching TV with my husband; seeing my dog defend our backyard from squirrels and falling leaves; cooking for fun and not function; harnessing my creativity through painting, crafting, and twisting champagne cork cages into tiny chairs; watching birds from my deck; watching dragonflies from my deck; watching neighbors from my deck; watching clouds from my deck; my deck; and enjoying an excellent (or not even mildly excellent) cocktail...from my deck.
Now that you know more about me, I look forward to learning more about you. I'm delighted to do my part to add even more laughter and positivity to Pine Coast and am eager to help encourage you to improve your health and happiness too, through the services we provide!
