Why I Serve:

I believe research is the foundation of sound clinical practice.  Being busy in practice and with other endeavors, the best way I can help research in Chiropractic is to be a member of the CCRF and help with my areas of expertise.  I want to use sound governance and policies to help make the CCRF more efficient, effective and profitable to ensure years of quality research to come.
