After a month or so under treatment one morning, she was running late to work and she jump out of bed to get ready and that's when she realized that her pain was gone and she was functioning and feeling excellent.

Hi! My name is Sarah. I grew up in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes! It sounds very cliché, but I literally moved to Florida for the sunshine! I try to enjoy it every opportunity I can. I love the sunshine! I have three kids and a few of my favorite pastimes are going for walks, drinking coffee, and shopping! When not at work, you can find me relaxing on the beach! I love to travel and feel most at peace when amongst nature.
My background is in Psychology…although I started college as an Art major, but realized that Psychology was my niche, but art has always been a hobby of mine. My interests and area of expertise in psychology is in neuropsychology/biopsychology. I am fascinated by the brain and the connection between mind and body, and I love studying the effects of physiology in human behavior. I can tell you all about the history of 20th century brain research-from Phineas Gage to Karl Lashley. I love that I can utilize my background and interests while working at Arc of Life.
