About Me

Miravone - aboutHey!! My name is Miravone, and I'm a December 2010 graduate from the NUHS Doctor of Chiropractic Program. After graduating, I'm continuing my education and pursuing the Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine.

A quick synopsis: Born in France. Laotian heritage. Youngest of 7. 1st-generation college student. Raised partially in Whittier, CA and Rockford, IL. Graduated with my Bachelor's in Biomedical Science from NUHS December 2006. Married Ryan August 29th, 2009 - an amazing man (a chiropractor, too!). Kids: 2 cats (Sampson & Delilah) and 1 dog (Oliver). Hobbies: music, exercise, cooking, and enjoying time with loved ones.

My decision to attend chiropractic school rather than medical school involved multiple factors. I realized that I wanted to have an opportunity to be more involved in the improvement of health using less invasive therapies. During my journey and the establishment of the naturopathic program at NUHS, I began to ponder what type of practice I wanted. I realized that my passion could be fully explored through integrating my love for both chiropractic and naturopathic medicine.

Being trained by Dr. Thomas Solecki in clinic has prepared me to be a better chiropractor than I could ever imagine utilizing functional rehabilitation, soft tissue techniques, as well as better manipulative techniques. The techniques I learned with him had amazing results that were not just palliative but curative!

Now that I am back to being a student again, it seems absolutely surreal but exciting at the same time. I am going to be trained by some of the best naturopathic physicians out there, utilize my love for internal medicine and problem solving, and use my chiropractic skills to completely manage a patient holistically. What could be more exciting than that?

I'm just a normal girl with normal problems in a beautiful city with big dreams and pretend invincibility (he he). My education has always been my outlet, and my journey at NUHS has changed my life (for better!). Thank you for joining me on my journey to becoming the Poster Child for NUHS…just kidding. Email me if you have any questions!
