Get to know your Doctor
Dr. Erika grew up in Newark, Ohio where she participated in many sporting events throughout high school and college including: volleyball, track, weight lifting and figure competitions. During her free time, you can find Erika playing competitive volleyball, doing any outdoor activity, and hanging with friends and family.
After high school she pursued a Physical Therapy degree, Holistic Nutrition and Wellness degree and a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic. Dr. Erika first worked in many settings with a career in physical therapy including: acute and rehab floors in the local hospital, outpatient, pediatrics and geriatric skilled nursing facilities. Although her love for physical therapy still persists, Dr. Erika started to research the chiropractic profession.
Her road to Chiropractic was heavily influenced by her own health journey that significantly improved through receiving chiropractic care. Dr. Erika spent years researching and looking for answers, believing that a pill for symptomology wasn’t the answer! After realizing the human body doesn’t make mistakes and that all systems work together, Dr. Erika became persistent on making sure others didn’t have to go years without answers to their health concerns. For that reason, Dr. Erika then pursued chiropractic as a career and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa.
While in doctorate school, she trained for 3.5 years under a world recognized spine and extremity expert addressing foot, knee, hip, wrist, elbow, arm and TMJ. She also spent 3 years learning from the Wellness Way practitioners as a student and then joined the team as a doctor.
Dr. Erika is extremely passionate in finding the root cause and creating a roadmap to unlocking the body’s full potential of healing. The healing journey can begin for anyone at any age. Dr. Erika is determined to bring this new perspective of health to the Newark, Granville and surrounding areas of Ohio.
