Hello and welcome to Agape Chiropractic’s web page! Agape Chiropractic has been a far off dream of mine for several years now and I am excited to finally have the privilege to share it with you.
First a little bit about me! I was born in Chicago, IL but shortly thereafter my father’s job brought my family to the wonderful town of Edmond. This is where I grew up through my elementary school years and truly became our home. Then my father’s job moved us to Arkansas. We were sad to leave Edmond but excited for a new adventure. Upon graduating high school from Russellville High School my family moved back to Edmond (Yay!) and I went off to college at Oklahoma State University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science. Go Pokes! (But no hard feelings towards the Sooner fans out there!) Upon graduation from OSU I moved up to Kansas City where I attended Cleveland University – Kansas City and graduated with my Doctorate of Chiropractic. During my time away from Edmond I always dreamed of returning to this special town so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to open Agape Chiropractic in my hometown and bless and be blessed by the people of Edmond through Chiropractic care.
Agape (ah-gah-pey) is a word that began resonating with me during my second year of chiropractic school. The dictionary definition for Agape is defined as 1. the love of God or Christ for humankind. 2. the love of Christians for other persons, corresponding to the love of God for humankind. My faith in Christ has always been important in my life and I want this to be at the forefront of my mind at all times. My #1 goal is to love others as Christ loves us and use my God-given chiropractic skills to make every person that walks into my office feel loved, cared for, and that there is hope to improve their life.
LOVE your spine, LOVE your life!
