I grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan Canada, with my parents and two sisters. The area has many similarities to Loxton; mainly family farms of medium size, mixed farming (wheat, barley, canola, peas, lentils, cattle and bison) and similar annual rainfall.
I met my wife, Lynley, when she was on the Agriventure farm exchange program on a nearby farm. The rest is history as they say and I moved to Perth in 2001 and have lived in Australia ever since. I worked my first few years in Australia as a Civil Engineer, then enrolled in Chiropractic at Murdoch University in WA in 2004.
We moved to Loxton in 2010, and have loved living here since. We found the community warm and welcoming. The community immediately invited us to get involved in many organisations and groups.
Lynley and I have 3 young daughters and love an active outdoor lifestyle. I enjoy cycling on a regular basis and have completed several rides in excess of 100 kms. I try to ride 2 times a week and would like to do more if time permitted. I also partake in CrossFit, which is a functional movement exercise program. I have found these sports keep me in shape for the demands of practice. I am a bit of a petrol head as well (no projects on the go at this time 🙁 ).
Before starting with Seaman Chiropractic, I knew I wanted to learn more about natural health and wellbeing but knew little about the science of chiropractic. I had previously owned a travel agency before taking a complete career turn to pharmacy. It was during these four years that I developed a strong interest in health and wellbeing, focussing my time on Sleep Apnoea patients, vitamin supplements and weight management.
My husband and I both grew up in Loxton and have now chosen this beautiful town to raise our two children. We all love spending time on the river, and the winters are devoted to sport with the Wunkar Football and Netball Clubs.
Although my family and I are still new to the Chiropractic lifestyle, I have already seen and experienced the health benefits and I am looking forward to helping more people improve their lives through our clinic. I would love to hear your Chiropractic success story!
