Answering a calling toward Pediatric Chiropractic, with Melanie Reyes-Margolla- Podcast

It’s truly amazing how Chiropractic can change the trajectory of a person’s life. Puerto Rican native Melanie Reyes- Margolla had a long-standing desire to pursue a chiropractic education after attending a Life Leadership Weekend at Life University, but Hurricane Maria delayed her plans for a year. While working as a teacher in the meantime, she saw firsthand the tremendous healing that a student of hers experienced from chiropractic care and that renewed her resolve. Today she is President of Student LIFEforce, encouraging other prospective and future D.C. students to take that leap of faith. Her goal is to become a Pediatric Chiropractor.

Many of those pins would land in Puerto Rico, like it would for Sherybel Berrios-Ramos, who is from the capital of San Juan.
