Dr Katie grew up right down the street in River Forest. She suffered from daily headaches as a child, and after visiting many different specialists ended up at a chiropractor. He examined her and explained how her headaches were coming from her neck being out of alignment. He gave her her first spinal adjustment and her headaches improved steadily from that day forward. This was the day that changed the course of her future. She knew then that she wanted to become a chiropractor and help change other people's lives.
