Dr. Greg grew up in Dayton, Ohio. He graduated from Fairmont West High School in 1968. He was a National Honor Society student, President of the varsity athletic club, class officer his senior year, and received the Scholar Athlete and Christian Athlete Awards.

In 1974 he graduated from San Jose State University in California with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. He went on to successfully run a family sales agency.

In the early eighties, he made a career change that was his true life`s calling.  In 1982 he moved to Atlanta to attend Life Chiropractic College (now Life University) and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1986 with his Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree.

While at Life, he worked in the research department participating in a variety of research studies. One of these studies, designed and conducted with a colleague, was published in ?Today?s Chiropractor?, Sept. 1985. By far the most important thing that happened during that time was his marriage to Lyn!

Dr. Greg and Lyn wanted to be around mountains and water and decided on New Hampshire to open their first practice. Over the next twelve years they built a large successful family practice.

During this time, Dr. Greg held various leadership positions including President of the New Hampshire Straight Chiropractic Society and Vice President of the New Hampshire Chiropractic Educational Council. While President of the N.H.S.C.S. he participated on committees involving Blue Cross/Blue Shield program analysis and development, Medicaid benefit program analysis, and worker?s compensation internal review process.

He was also a member of the International Chiropractor?s Association and the World Chiropractic Alliance for whom he was a state representative. During this time he also had the distinct honor of being chosen to participate as a consensus committee member for establishing national practice guidelines for straight chiropractic at the Wyndham Conference in 1992. In 1996 Dr. Greg and Lyn made a trip to China to adopt their daughter, Callie.

In 1987, they decided to take a sabbatical. After a year and a half, and much searching, they visited the Traverse City area and immediately fell in love with it. They opened their new practice in Acme in January of 1999 and again are facilitating their community?s families to reach a higher quality of life.
