Faces of LIFE: Stephen Hill

Hill is excited to start the next part of his career after graduation. “I want to work in an integrative environment after school,” Hill described. “I love the doctor-patient relationship that is one-on-one and encourages people to live to their optimal health. I really want to inject positivity into the world with things like random acts of kindness.”

Faces of LIFE: Mikey Provost

Provost is very passionate about Chiropractic. “It’s one of those things where it’s who you are. We talk about it all the time, and it’s a very cool little bubble that I find myself in.”

Faces of LIFE: Chantelle Frazier

Originally, Frazier was pre-med with the intentions of going to medical school. “I actually worked in a hospital surrounded by doctors, nurses and PT’s, and they all looked pretty miserable,” she shared. “I realized I didn’t think this was the kind of energy I wanted to be around because it’s kind of draining.”

“There were a couple things that led me to LIFE. I started chiropractic care when I was 10 years old because I hurt my knee and tore my meniscus. I went to two orthopedic specialists, and both of them told me I needed surgery.”

“I see my son who constantly talks about being under chiropractic care. I mean this 7-year-old understands some of the chiropractic principles,” she shared. “So, the ripple effect from what my education has been able to offer has a hold in every part of my life.”

Faces of LIFE: Sydney Bickmeyer

Bickmeyer’s biggest piece of advice is for prospective students to come to a LIFE Leadership Weekend and see if they fall in love with the philosophy. “If you don’t love chiropractic philosophy, you are going to get burnt out,” she said

Her advice to other students is to make more connections in the earlier quarters. “I wish that I had been more involved with some of the clubs and stuff,” she shared. “I wish that I had been more involved in study groups. I realize that when I felt inadequate in a class, I didn’t want to get in a study group because I didn’t want to reveal what I didn’t know.” She hopes that people realize that everybody struggles with something, and it shouldn’t be embarrassing. “When I was in a study group, it came so much easier because we all had something to share with each other. You don’t get through this program alone.”

“When I came to LIFE Leadership Weekend, the Student Ambassadors were a key thing for my decision to come here because seeing all of their stories and struggles, them still finding a way to be here and do what they love inspired me,” she shared. “They left a mark in me that made me want to be able to do that to other people.” Rosado became a Student Ambassador in order to work with prospective students and guests to give them the amazing experience that she had.

Angela Getter

“Ask yourself why you are in this space,” Getter said. “How are we going to get you to that why? You have to be open to being counseled around that because it is never just about the money; it is about your purpose. If your purpose is in sync with the donor’s perspective, they are going to support you because they have been where you are.” To that end, she shared that Life University’s core values that are engrained in the campus culture – Integrity, Vitalism and Lasting Purpose – help students get clear on their position and purpose and help them find that “why” they’ve been looking for.

Nick Shelby

For Nick Shelby, becoming a chiropractor is a family affair. Shelby’s father and uncle both graduated from Life University. Regardless of that history, Shelby made the decision to pursue the profession on his own.
