Ariann met Dr. Drew at Wartburg College in Waverly, IA back in 2008, and they married in 2013. Currently, Ariann teaches high school English at Ankeny High School. She has a passion for teaching and helping people. At Embrace Life Chiropractic, she has the opportunity to do both! Ariann’s first exposure to chiropractic was while Dr. Drew was attending Palmer College of Chiropractic. Ariann had always had painful menstrual cycles with severe cramping, diagnosed as endometriosis. She would have to miss work, take medication, and stay home in bed until the pain subsided. Now, through regular chiropractic care, Ariann no longer experiences painful cycles. Through time and repetition, chiropractic also helped with other health concerns that she thought was “just normal,” such as exercise-enduced asthma, allergies, and jaw pain. Because of her experience, Ariann is excited to help others understand how chiropractic may benefit them too.
