I was born in Manhattan, lived 2 blocks from the Bronx Zoo and the NY Botanical Gardens where I found my love of animals and plants.

In 1967 a drunk driver hit me and I broke the window with my head. I had headaches every day, neck pain and left arm numbness. I suffered for two years before going to a chiropractor in 1969. My resulting healing was so spectacular that in 1972 I decided to go to chiropractic college. I graduated in 1975 from New York Chiropractic College and moved to Somerville and started my practice on March 8, 1976. I intend to practice as long as I am able.

I enjoy the poodles, gardening and my patients.
