A Startling Introduction to a Future Profession
As an undergrad, Dr. Hilary knew little about chiropractic. One day she was walking out of a classroom when she was knocked to her knees as the heavy classroom door slammed into her face. She lost about 15 seconds of memory and found herself wandering around campus. Eventually, a friend found her and immediately took her to a local ER. She was diagnosed with a severe concussion. “When I asked what could be done, I was told that I’d just have to endure the effects for 3-4 months as it slowly healed.”
Going to school and working full-time made life miserable, as she began to suffer from intense headaches. “My boss told me I should go to see a chiropractor; I followed his advice. My concussion symptoms were completely gone within three weeks, and many other symptoms that I’d become used to over the years also greatly improved: low back pain, menstrual problems and digestive issues. I realized that prior to receiving chiropractic care, I hadn’t truly been living. I got my life back!”
IT’S ALL ABOUT LIFE POTENTIAL
Dr. Hilary received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2015 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Since graduation, she’s been instrumental in growing two practices outside of Chicago and has seen the potential for optimized health increase in the many patients she’s served.
“One of my first patients was a 12-year-old female suffering from headaches, depression, photosensitivity and extreme behavioral issues. She had been expelled from school and was living with her grandmother. Within weeks of starting her care, this young lady transformed in front of my eyes. She went from out of control to living a much better life. She was able to move back home with her parents in another state, and when she left, she handed me a poem that she had written just for me. It’s one of my most treasured possessions.”
Outside the Office
Dr. Hilary is originally from Iowa and grew up on a farm. She’s always been a huge fan of volleyball and loves to read in her spare time. Ongoing self-improvement is essential to her, and she is constantly researching information to make the lives of her practice family better in every way. She lives with her husband and practice partner Dr. Jeff, along with two beloved kitties.
