Faces of LIFE- Olivia Porpora

Going into her collegiate years, Olivia Porpora’s initial plan was to continue on to medical school. She studied Exercise Science at the University of Delaware, and while completing her bachelor’s degree, Porpora decided that medical school was not the path she wanted to take because it didn’t align with her personal beliefs on what health care should look like. She had been seeing a chiropractor and “always thought it was a really cool profession.”

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.
