I can remember it clear as day. I was a seven year old girl enjoying a summer day in the sun.
My friends and I having fun taking turns on the hammock swing, when all of a sudden my life was about to take a direction
that would bring me to where I am today.
We got the idea to start twisting the swing to see how
high we could get it, well we were successful. We twisted and twisted the swing until the last thing I remember seeing
was when I looked up at the branch my swing was tied to and just like that the rope snapped. Down to the ground I went.
Extreme pain is all I remember, not being able to move and in a state of shock. From there it was from Doctor to Doctor.
It was one Doctor who said I think we should perform surgery on her back. That was all my Mom needed to hear and we
were out the door.
Gratefully, my Mom found a wonderful Chiropractor, Dr. Carol Phillips.
She is someone who has helped inspire me into the direction I am today. At just seven years old, after meeting her,
I knew somehow I wanted to be in the Natural Health field. She worked on me for hours and hours. Here is this
little girl full of prenazone, can't even really see her real face she is so puffy from the drug. Dr. Carol Phillips
worked on me with CranioSacral Therapy. I remember that night on the drive home I cried and cried and talked a mile
a minute about my Dad. Just a few months before my fall, my parents got a divorce and I completely became silent about
it all, never expressing my feelings whatsoever. However that night, it all came out!
knew then that something profund had just happened and I was hooked!
Years go by, and I had tried
and tried to find Dr. Carol Phillips to let her know what an impact she had on my life.
while at work, I came across a pamphlet, and who was on the cover? Dr. Carol Phillips! She was going to be teaching
CranioSacral Therapy and Myofascial classes. The rest is history, I immediately signed up for her classes and from that
first day, I felt home. I knew that this is what I am meant to be doing, this is my life purpose.
It is just amazing how life works. I needed to fall in that hammock to help lead me to my purpose. It
is so amazing how it all came full circle from that seven year old girl to the present moment.
of my interests are enjoying life's precious moments. We have to be grateful for the beauty of life, like those moments
with your loved ones and being together to even those moments when it is just you in solitude. I am an advid reader, you are
likely to catch me in a book! I love walking, breathing fresh air and admiring God's gifts. Gardening is a secret
passion of mine, one I don't really know enough of yet, but am going to learn all I can and play in the dirt! I also
love helping people find balance in their bodies, and their life again!
Thank you for taking
the time to learn a little about me, I hope I get to learn a bit about you in the future!
