When I look back on my decision to become a chiropractor, there were a lot of people who nudged me in the right direction—often without knowing it. The first was my father, a medical doctor. I knew I wanted to be in a similar profession where I helped people, but the traditional medical path didn’t appeal to me. But because of my interest in sports, physiotherapy seemed like it might be a fit. However, upon volunteering at a clinic, I found the experience too dull. It had some of the impact I hoped to achieve, but didn’t spark that fire inside of me.
