“When Meri was studying her profession, she needed a few “practice dummys” to get certified. She reached out to my wife Shannon and me. We had been in a volunteer group together, so we felt like helping a friend. She had no idea that at that point, I had been in a major car accident and had also played sports all of my life, including being on a college football team. I had problems across the board.
When giving my wife the initial checking over, she asked when Shannon had hurt her shoulder. Shannon had also been in a car accident, having been hit from behind by a vehicle still going between 45 and 5p while Shannon’s car was completely stopped. Meri picked up on that without any prompting and is still working to help solve that problem.
My job moved me to another city a few years back and while I was there, slipped on ice and hurt my neck and back. I went t see someone about it in the other city. This missed that problem as whiplash, so they did not try to treat for that. I came home early that Friday to see Meri. She not only figured out what it was, but had me walking pain-free and upright an hour later. I walked into her office with my back looking like a question mark symbol.
I live hard and play hard. I have broken over 40 bones in my life. I don’t like going to the doctor, and hate the hospital. Unless I have broken bones, I reach out to Meri before making any judgment over the next step. She knows what she does better than most people have mastered what they do.”
