Episode 4: Sherman College of Chiropractic

An audio only version is available below, or for download on iTunes.

We've got an awesome show this time, all about Sherman College of Chiropractic. We had so much to talk about we ended up going a bit longer than usual, but I hope you can find time to tune in and hear about what fried chicken and B.J. Palmer impersonators have to do with straight chiropractic.

Joining me in this episode of Exploring Chiropractic are five wonderful ladies at Sherman in Spartanburg, South Carolina:

Anna Elkins 12th Quarter Chiropractic Intern

Virginia Voyles 5th quarter student, originally a native of Illinois. She has an undergraduate degree in business and worked in advertising sales and as a financial consultant for a period before becoming a chiropractic assistant.

Rachel Leskosky 4th quarter student from Pennsylvania, with an undergraduate background in Neuroscience

Ginny Gross 6th/7th quarters transfer student from National University and then Life in Atlanta, Georgia.

Robin Heaton 4th & 5th Quarter student. An "older" student who been in the alternative health care field for over 20 years. Attended two other chiropractic schools in the past (2000) and chose Sherman over returning to the chiropractic other schools.

Episode 2: Life Chiropractic College West with Angel Ochoa

Angel Ochoa is a 10th Quarter student at Life Chiropractic College West who transferred from University of Western States. He posted a video almost exactly 1 year ago that has hit nearly 2000 views on YouTube and is still getting responses nearly everyday. In it, Angel describes the feeling of despair while attending a school that didn't match his philosophy of chiropractic, and the renewed excitement and love for the profession he has gained since transferring.

In our discussion, Angel shares how his life and experience at school has changed in the past year, what he loves about his clinic experience, and why the warehouse-turned-chiropractic-school still has bare walls, floors, and no ceiling tiles.
