Why I am a chiropractor: Over 12 years ago, a chiropractor in my hometown helped me heal my body from injuries sustained during sports. To me, chiropractic care has so much to offer - not only does it often help reduce pain and other symptoms, it facilitates the ultimate expression of YOUR, very own, wonderful YOU-NESS. NUCCA chiropractic is additionally wonderful as it is a very light force, yet powerful technique that garners massive results for our patients. It is truly amazing to watch patients glow once they are in alignment, I am extremely grateful to be a part of their transformation.

Our Patient Care Specialists
We've been helping our patients since 2004, with key help from our specialists!
"I am inspired by the success of our patients. Hearing the stories of individuals overcoming pain and distress and living a better life keeps me going each day. I grew up in a small town in San Diego, but longed for a sense of community, the people that I have met through Healthy Life Chiropractic have created a new definition of community for me. Each and every patient welcomed me with open arms with a new story to share and something unique to offer to not only our practice, but the Bay Area. Working with a group of kind, compassionate and intelligent people is a big plus too. NUCCA is a very gentle yet impact-full, much like our staff. Overall, Healthy Life Chiropractic is an incredibly encouraging environment that promotes growth, strength and a healthy lifestyle. I couldn't be happier to be a part of it!"
"When I was 21 years old I felt a sharp pain in my lower back, hunching over. My grandmother took me to the ER & they could only prescribe me aspirin & couldn't tell me WHY I become bedridden for a month. It wasn't until I started working for a Manual Manipulation D.C. that my life changed & I finally knew the root cause of that pain. The DC took X-rays and explained my scoliosis to me, that it had been with me since I was a young child, just finally feeling the pain & could have been corrected if I had known sooner. Even knowing how much Chiropractic helped me, I made the mistake of not maintaining my care. I came to work once again in the Chiropractic field with Dr. Meakim in 2015, missing the connection with patients and saw how much my spine had degenerated without care. Under NUCCA care I have slowed this degeneration & my insomnia has gone away. Now, It is my mission to help patients not make the same mistake I did and to maintain true correction at our office & make sure EVERYONE gets checked to learn about their own body sooner than I did, most importantly kids. I am here to help!!"
“I graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors in Biochemistry in May 2016. During my time at SFSU, I volunteered on three mission trips to Central America where I provided medical, dental and public health assistance to the underserved communities. My passion for helping others and educating people about their health drove me to pursue a career in the health field. Originally, my intention was to become a medical doctor or a pharmacist. However, after seeing many of my immediate family members experience adverse health effects from prescription drugs, I was on the search for an alternative approach to healing. The patients of Healthy Life Chiropractic inspire me every day with their success and desire to attain health and wellness on a holistic level. It’s a pleasure coming in to work every day and seeing how our patients lives have been transformed by NUCCA."
