Being a woman can be a pain in the back. I should know because my back and leg pain began 15 years ago. The first two years were really rough. I had three epidurals, a year of physical therapy, and when I saw the image of my spine, I cried. I knew the two herniated discs would change my life forever. Eventually, pain became my doorway to transformation and discovery.
For over fifteen years since graduating with honors from the University of California, Davis School of Medicine, I have guided people through the maze and roadblocks of chronic painful conditions. After publishing a book called High Heels to Hormones: A woman's guide to spine health. My practice in Northern California has grown and become a valuable asset to my hometown. Now I am serving a the medical director for Community Recovery Resources (www.corr.us). This non-profit organization focuses on providing a full spectrum of programs that reduce the social, health, and financial impact on our families and children from all types of drug abuse. This position has allowed me to branch out into the field of addiction medicine.
