Debby was introduced into the chiropractic world back in her college days as a member of the Mizzou Diving team where she failed an attempted three meter springboard dive. Unfortunately this injury kept her from participating in the Big Eight Championships that year. She was absolutely shattered that all of her training and hard work that year was lost time and energy. Never having been exposed to chiropractic care before, Debby was offered an opportunity to see a chiropractor as an avenue to help heal these injuries. It was at that time she realized the advantages of chiropractic care and decided to incorporate chiropractic care as a component of her active life. She has never regretted this decision.
Debby continues to live a very full life, quite often walking, hiking, biking, running and weight lifting. She adores hanging out with her husband of almost 20 years and her three awesome kids when they come home from college.
