Dr. Graham worked in the grocery industry for 20 years where she endured multiple labor-related physical injuries and was later introduced to chiropractic. After experiencing the non-invasive, gentle treatment of chiropractic, Dr. Graham was completely inspired by how it allowed for an amazing level of healing in her body.
Chiropractic was so successful for Dr. Graham that she was inspired to become a chiropractor .
Dr. Graham graduated from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California as Valedictorian of her class, receiving clinic honors, and the clinic recognition award.
While in school, she realized chiropractic helps more than physical injuries and can have an impact on emotional and spiritual levels as well. She is excited and inspired to share her knowledge with practice members and assist in their choices to improve their health on a holistic level and to awaken their innate potential to its fullest!
