"In 1981, for certain reasons, I decided to change careers. I initially was headed for medical school. However, after going to a chiropractor and seeing people walking in with pain then walking out feeling so much better, without drugs, or surgery or anything other than what the doctor did with his hands. That was it. There is nothing more rewarding. I love my job.
