Ashley chose Dr. Goldi as her mentor, so she’ll be working in our office for a while. We asked Ashley a few questions to help you get to know her better.
Update! Ashley graduated in September from Palmer, just like me! She is a board certified and California licensed chiropractor. Ashley’s working here to learn the ins and outs of running a chiropractic practice as she gathers her resources to open her own practice in Santa Cruz later this year.
Read on to learn about her beliefs about chiropractic.
Why Ashley Believes in Chiropractic Care
People are so unique and everyone has their own story to tell. When I work with a patient, I get to know them as best as I can, so that I can develop a care plan tailored to their lifestyle.
Chiropractic is a way of life for me. Its holistic approach integrates all aspects of health to treat the source of the problem, not just the symptoms. Chiropractic can help with so many ailments, not just the spine.
Chiropractic helps me sleep better, got rid of my earaches, and helps my mood. It calms me down when I’m stressed, it helps me be more present in my body, and it relieves my headaches and pain. Chiropractic empowers me to live a better life.
Why Ashley Chose to Intern with Golden Chiropractic
Dr. Goldi’s humility and down-to-earth personality was an automatic draw for me. She is so laid back and real. I think that it’s the best approach to patient-centered care. Her personality was the single most important aspect for me in choosing a mentor. I wanted someone who I could look up to and emulate. Someone who would foster an environment where I could learn and grow without fear and intimidation.
The moment I walk into the office, I am always taken aback by the large windows and natural lighting. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming, which immediately makes me feel like I belong. The energy and flow of the office is truly special, and being so close to the beach is an extra perk. I have visited many chiropractic offices and Golden Chiropractic truly has it all.
Why Ashley chose to become a chiropractor
I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from UCSC in 2010, with the hopes of becoming a marriage and family therapist. While I worked in the field for seven years as a counselor, I realized that my passion was not psychology, but rather people. I loved people, and I wanted a career where I could help them feel better more quickly. That’s when I turned to chiropractic and I enrolled at Palmer West in San Jose where I am currently embarking on my final quarter.
What Ashley does with her free time
In my spare time I enjoy jogging near the ocean, going to the beach, spending time with my boyfriend of eight years, cooking, and playing guitar.
