Clyde Park Chiropractic
I obtained my bachelors degree at the University of Calgary. After working for a year I went through an extensive career evaluation at a company called Stevenson and Kellogg. The evaluation results stated that I would be a most miserable person in the future if I didn't pursue a health care related profession. Once I heard this, I knew in my deepest heart that I would not be satisfied with anything less than a natural healing profession, and so I began to seriously consider chiropractic.
I applied to Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto. Three months after getting married to Sandee in June 1972, I was enrolled in CMCC. Four years later I graduated Magnum Cum Laude with honours.
When I began my chiropractic education in Toronto, I realized that I had found something that was totally me - natural health care that was all natural - and with hard work and determination I was able to complete and enjoy learning what I wanted and needed to know to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. What a gift to me, and hopefully as I practice, to my patients and others!
At graduation in May 1976, I received the Samuel F. Sommacal Clinic Proficiency Award for outstanding proficiency in the clinic the year I graduated. Following graduation, we returned to Calgary to practice. We have been here since my graduation over 33 years ago. You might find it interesting to know that my father-in-law and two brothers-in-law are also chiropractors!
