Faces of LIFE- Catherine Clement

Prior to attending Life University (Life U), Catherine Clement owned and operated Stabilize Studios, a Pilates and movement rehabilitation studio in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her primary concentration in that business revolved around providing support for individuals with movement issues, particularly those related to scoliosis. Many people might think of Pilates as a trendy exercise regiment, but Clement’s clients typically came to her to alleviate systemic health issues as opposed to simple aerobic enjoyment.

Faces of LIFE- Tavo Lemus

Texas-born and raised by Mexican immigrant parents that met stateside, Tavo Lemus knows what it is like to have a big family, as he grew up with two brothers and four sisters.

Lemus reflected on how his mom used to ask him to “crack her back” to relieve built up tension. She had noted that Lemus might do well in a profession that required working with his hands, though he initially resisted.

Faces of LIFE- Sherybel Berrios-Ramos

If you were to put a pin in a map that shows where all the students enrolled in Life U are from, the pins would dot all over as a colorful testament to our diverse campus culture. Many of those pins would land in Puerto Rico, like it would for Sherybel Berrios-Ramos, who is from the capital of San Juan.

My First Quarter- Heather Garrison

I liked being able to come into such a close-knit program and community. Everyone was very like-minded. Everyone here is so passionate about chiropractic. It was a big shift coming, going from being at home in North Carolina versus being here where you’re surrounded by so many like-minded, passionate people.
