After graduating from Mahnomen High School in 1989 I moved on to Moorhead State University and received a B.A. in Biology in 1993. I moved to Bloomington, MN in the fall and started Northwestern College of Chiropractic where I received my Doctor of Chiropractic in 1996. While there, I also earned a B.S. in Human Biology and became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
