Born in Wauseon, Ohio on December 13, 1967, I have been a lifelong resident of Northwest Ohio. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Toledo and am a graduate (B.A.) of the Biology Department in the pre-medical track. I furthered my studies at the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, Illinois and earned both a B.S. and Doctor of Chiropractic degree. I opened and directed my own clinic for 23 years in Wauseon, Ohio as Frank Acupuncture & Chiropractic Clinic. Serving as a contingent and part-time assistant professor in the Gross Anatomy laboratory courses in the medical and physician assistant programs from 2012 through 2016, I became a full-time employee in August 1, 2016. In the last five years, I have dedicated my professional efforts towards the new medical curriculum, my professional skills on new education pedagogies, and advancement of collaboration between the main campus and health sciences campus.
