She and Doctor Patrick Alf had worked together in the past, and knew that they shared a similar philosophy in how to treat patients as well as in their passionate beliefs in Chiropractic treatment. In 2013, she opened her business Complete Care Chiropractic and has been working here with Dr. Patrick Alf ever since.As her practice continues to grow, her favorite part about her job is being able to help people and make a difference in their lives.
