“Chiropractor: Jackie’s childhood dream to one day practice Network Spinal Analysis chiropractic!”
I have wanted to be a chiropractor since I was a kid. My third grade scrapbook reads verbatim:
When I grow up I want to be:
1. A chiropractor
2. A teacher
3. A model
A vain child, perhaps. But! The first two career-choices did confirm my adolescent vision wasn’t all about me…
Jackie’s dad is a chiropractor too!
Once a year in elementary school, I’d have the opportunity to show my father off in the classroom. He would bring his adjusting table in with a purple puppet he called Doozy. When the time would come for my dad to ask for a volunteer, I would cross my fingers with high hopes that he would choose my crush[es].
I was 9 and life was pretty simple—if dad could pull off looking cool, well… like father like daughter. I still run into one of my old crushes every now and then, who tells me he’ll be first in line when I open my own practice. >/p>
In the posts that follow, she outlines not only her day-to-day struggles, triumphs, hurdles and adventures but her personal insights, worries, and victories as well. She also expounds upon her sense of the bigger picture, as its parameters expand while in college.
Because we asked her to, she gave til it hurt! 😉
Jackie created many dozens of posts for this series before the workload of college had to focused on without distraction. But what a wealth of material she gave us up until that time!
Besides the interest in knowing one person’s story, I feel any potential chiropractic students would find highly valuable all Jackie shares within the context of pursuing a Network Spinal Analysis chiropractic degree.
See what you might be getting into. See that it’s attainable. See the hard work involved. Gain some insight from one who’s achieving it. Then go do it if this is you!
