Chiropractic Allows Me To Heal The Whole BodyDr

Ever since I was little I wanted to be a doctor of some sort. All through college, I had my sites set on being a dentist. I was applying to dental schools when I decided that I didn’t want to be working in people’s mouths all day long and I wanted to do something that dealt with the entire person. After some research, I decided that being a chiropractor would allow me that opportunity.

I graduated from the University of Texas-San Antonio in 2000 with a bachelors degree in biology. I then went on and did my masters work in biology at the University of Illinois – Springfield. When I enrolled in chiropractic school in the fall of 2002 I had never seen a chiropractor and wasn’t even quite sure what they did. At that time I was very “medically-minded”, meaning that I would only see a doctor if I was sick, but I was also very into natural health and the idea of allowing the body to heal itself.

I Didn’t Know I Was Going To Be A Chiropractor

When I was younger I knew that I wanted to go into healthcare, but I was not sure what area to go in to. I started with training as an EMT with the intention of becoming a paramedic, but after some work in that area I realized that it was not right for me and I would have to look into something else. It was around this time that my uncle suffered a ruptured disc in his low back which left him in agonizing pain. He started seeing a chiropractor for this and had incredible results. When you see where he started and where he was after a few visits he had made incredible improvements in his condition. After that I started doing some research on the profession and thought that it would be a great career to go in to.

Chiropractic Opened My Eyes to the Body’s Potential

Growing up in St. Louis, I was heavily involved with sports such as basketball, baseball and soccer. It was my life, and I loved each and every minute of it.  Little did I know, however, that this love for sports would have such a significant influence on the kind of work I wanted to do in the future. It took me awhile to realize this, though.  When I first got to undergraduate school at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to study.  Thinking something in business might suit me, I chose Accounting.  It didn’t take me long to realize that this was not for me, and I quickly changed majors to Exercise Science with plans to attend Physical Therapy school in the future.  After moving back home after two years of school and playing soccer at Bellarmine, I decided to look into Chiropractic.  I had never been adjusted before and didn’t know much about it, but I was very intrigued by what I learned while taking a tour at Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri.

Stephen Kutz, Massage TherapistStephencirlce

Growing up in Lincoln, Illinois as a football player, massage was not a thought in my mind. From tackling players on the football field to helping people heal with those same hands didn’t seem to make much sense until after I graduated high school. After a few years of college and not having a true career plan, I decided to change direction. Luckily, I knew I wanted to do something that helped people heal.

In January of 2017 I looked online for some information about massage therapy at Midwest Technical Institute’s website. Almost a year later in October of 2017 I graduated from MTI and got my massage license. I knew exactly what I wanted to do in the field: help people live better. As of February 2018, I am able to do just that at the Springfield Wellness Center.

Maggie Borrowman, Front Desk ManagerMaggie-Borrowman_

As a recent graduate of Western Illinois University and a new Springfield resident, I’m eager to serve as the new Front Desk Manager for the Springfield Wellness Center. At WIU, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Communication with complementary minors in sociology and psychology.

During my time as a student I worked a series of part-time jobs that always seemed to involve customer service. It was at Starbucks where I discovered my passion for people. Being able to brighten the days of others with a smile and kindness was my objective at Starbucks, and it is my objective now. I’m excited to further explore Springfield and to continue to improve the days of others and be part of improving the community’s health while at the Springfield Wellness Center.

Find your passion and make it your work.

My husband and I moved to the Rochester area February of 2015 from St. Paul, MN. I have always been a firm believer in working for something you love and that passion for me is marketing. Marketing was my major at the University of Iowa and since then I have been fortunate enough to work with marketing teams in several different industries from electrical distribution to medical device. I like marketing so much because the game is constantly changing. From media print to local events to web presence the opportunities for reaching out to potential customers is endless!

My husband and I try to live a holistic lifestyle as much as possible because we realize the importance of great mental and physical health. I started as a patient of the center because I believe in the level of care it provides. To be a part of the Springfield Wellness Center in this capacity is something I am very thankful for.

Blair Crane, Marketing DirectorBlair

From Farmington, IL to Columbia, MO and now Springfield, I have continually been described as outgoing. This characteristic and my passion for people led me to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Communication at the University of Missouri, better known as Mizzou.

Through my time there I was often referred to as the “mom of the group”, meaning I was always taking care of everyone. From caring for my friends and volunteering at a local animal shelter, I knew I wanted to find a career where I can give back. After graduation I had the privilege of interning for a local hospital and found my love for health care. After gaining more hands-on experience of marketing, a year later I happily returned to health care by joining the team here at the Springfield Wellness Center.
