Dr. “Mari” enlisted in the United States Air Force after graduating high school, and had her sights aimed high on becoming a Pharmacist.

However after being witness to much suffering from pain and disease, she started to believe there had to be a better way to deal with the human condition than just medication.

Her interest led her to shadow a doctor of chiropractic to learn more about the wonders of chiropractic. She witnessed people get *Natural Pain Relief *and *Amazing Health Care * without the use of medication. Those elements led Dr. Mari to enroll in the next class at The National University of Health Sciences and graduated in 1999. Dr. Mari also studied the Cox Flexion/Distraction Technique, as well as taking courses in Pediatrics. During her course study in pediatrics she became certified in the Webster Technique.
