I was honoured as one of the Top 20 under 40 award winners of 2017 and I had an amazing time. I wrote down my thoughts for my speech, as I was emotional accepting this award and wouldn’t have been able to say them any other way.
The people I love were there, supporting me to accept an award for doing the thing I love the most – Chiropractic.
Damn … I am lucky ….
I am so incredibly grateful to be receiving this award tonight, in front of so many successful alumni and business people here, as well as in front of my loving family and best friends.
I believe I was meant to be a Chiropractor. When I graduated, I had the passion and drive to change the world and that passion and drive are as strong as ever today. I want to be a positive influence in people’s lives and help people from the inside out – from a philosophical approach that the human body is amazing and is capable of great healing.
As a sole female business owner and professional, there have been many challenges. My mistakes have taught me, and my successes have encouraged me. Hearing my patients tell me that they feel better than they have in years, they have their life back and that they are healing from all types of conditions… that it what inspires me to keep going.
I would not be where I am today without the support and love of the amazing people in my life. My parents have shown me hard work and fostered my independence. My husband has encouraged my self-confidence and loves me for everything that I am. My 6-month-old twins have helped me to develop patience, be more time efficient and have opened my heart up to a love that I never knew was possible.
To the judges and fellow award winners – thank you for choosing me as one of the winners honoured here tonight and thank you all for being incredible examples that our community continues to be in great hands for its’ future.”
