Born in Puerto Rico while my parents were stationed there, we moved to Virginia Beach when I was three and was raised  in the Kempsville area. As the son of a proud 23-year Navy veteran and a compassionate mother, my roots in service and care were deeply embedded from an early age.

 

There's a saying that many people don't embark on a journey until life nudges them in that direction. I am living proof of this statement. Growing up as the first to attend college in my family, I was the designated "smart kid." But my journey wasn't always clear-cut. Originally, I dreamed of being at every Dallas Cowboys game as their sports medicine physical therapist. That was until life, in the guise of my beloved grandma, threw me a curveball.

When she confided in me about her cancer diagnosis, I felt helpless. Here I was, a college junior, with knowledge in anatomy and physiology, yet unable to provide the guidance she so desperately sought. Her brave battle against breast cancer and the subsequent void it left in my heart reshaped my passion. I committed myself to find ways to truly support individuals in achieving optimal health. I wanted to be the beacon for those who felt lost in their health journey, especially for the older generation who felt their options were dwindling.

 

However, life had another challenge for me. A severe car crash when I was eighteen led to debilitating migraines that almost derailed my academic ambitions. It was here that chiropractic care came as an unexpected savior. From skeptic to believer, after just a few sessions, the reduction in my migraine frequency was undeniable. Inspired to understand the knowledge behind this science, I passionately pursued my studies in chiropractic care and proudly graduated from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic.

 

More recently, personal health struggles led me to discover new avenues of health care. A false Lyme Disease diagnosis opened the doors to a deeper understanding of my body, and with the guidance of eminent chiropractors, I unearthed the real culprits behind my ailments. Through disciplined diet changes and specialized treatments, I not only reclaimed my health, but gained invaluable insights that I now proudly incorporate into our patient care at Planet Wellness.

When I'm not working, I love exploring new places. I'm a big fan of snorkeling in the Caribbean, seeing the amazing underwater world up close. I've also traveled a lot within the U.S., and each trip gives me great stories to tell. Hiking in mountains is another thing I really enjoy – the views are always worth the climb. And on game day? I'm all in for football, watching and cheering for my favorite teams. Besides these hobbies, I spend a lot of time researching the brain-body-gut connection. It's all to help our clients at Planet Wellness get the best care possible.

 

Every challenge, from my own health battles to the heartache of losing my dear grandma, has only deepened my passion for understanding how our bodies and brains work together. These experiences taught me so much about health, and at Planet Wellness we are excited to share that knowledge with everyone. Whether you're from Hampton Roads or seeking help from another state, we are here to help you achieve your best health. My story, in many ways, mirrors the collective experiences of many, and it's in these shared stories that we find the purpose of Planet Wellness.
