1. What other paths did you consider before choosing Parker?
I was going to go to Med School, I wanted to be a Orthopedic Surgeon.
2. What makes Parker the right fit for you?
Honestly it was just the perfect time in my life, even with all the obstacles endured while at Parker, I don’t think things would have worked out as well as they did.
3. How has the Parker community supported you in your higher education pursuits?
They have made it super easy attempt to quench that thirst for knowledge.
4. What is your favorite thing about being a Parker student?
Favorite thing would have to be the free lunches and the awesome professors and doctors always willing to help.
5. What is the most challenging aspect of being a Parker student?
Most challenging aspect would have to be finances, I felt like that was the most inconvenient thing to deal with. Figuring out a more streamline way for students to receive funds in a timely manner would benefit Parker tremendously.
6. What has been your favorite class at Parker? Why?
Hmmmmm, my favorite class while in the DC program would have to be the internship of course or even our technique classes where we were more hands on. But if I had to pick an actual class I would say Neuroscience, just because Dr. Marzban pushed me to a point I never thought I was a capable of and was able to succeed. In my master’s program I would have to pick Dr. Kirk’s cardiovascular and exercise class. He came at us with a different format and loads of great information to actually apply in our outside lives.
7. Where will your Parker degree take you after graduation?
Wherever God leads me, my end goal would be to open up a gym with my clinic within it but like I said if God says it shall be then so shall it!
8. What is your favorite on-campus activity?
Parker seminars was pretty awesome I was able to speak with some of the brightest minds in chiropractic and have fun.
9. What is your favorite thing to do off-campus in the Dallas area?
Favorite thing to do in Dallas hmmmm honestly during the DC program hard to find time to do much if you want to be successful but I was able to find a part time job and exercise and find my future wife while going to Parker. So I guess it just depends on what your hobbies are.
10. What is the one thing you want everyone reading this to know about Parker University?
Parker university is easier to get in than it is to stay in. So don’t come here to lollygag, be focused but also understand that they will help you every step of the way you just have to know why you’re there and WANT to be there.
