Dr. Erik graduated, cum laude, from Life University in Atlanta, Georgia. His mission in life is to help people through neurologically based chiropractic care. Dr. Erik attributes the foundation of Innate Chiropractic to his internship that he attained at one of the largest chiropractic offices in the southeast, where he was able to witness amazing results over and over again. It was there that his passion and future mission became aligned. Dr. Erik knew wherever he and Dana were going to open an office, he would mirror it after his mentorship experience.
Today, Dr. Erik and Dana have two children that they love spending their time with. Dana and Dr. Erik are aligned in their passion to serve the future of chiropractic, and pay it forward to chiropractic students who they mentor.
