Melissa Hoar, a student at Palmer’s San Jose, Calif., campus, was featured in a Foundation for Chiropractic Progress “Future Champions of Chiropractic” ad.
A native of Australia, Melissa competed in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and qualified for the World Championships every year since she started “sliding” in 2005. She achieved performance-strengthening results through care provided during the Vancouver, B.C., Olympiad by Palmer Davenport alumnus Jason Ross, D.C., Team USA chiropractor.
“I always knew I wanted to do something within the health field, and chiropractic seemed like it was the best fit for me, especially as I personally benefited, and learned that chiropractic was more than just adjusting the spine,” says Melissa. Also a two-time Surf Life Saving world-champion, she’ll soon graduate from Palmer’s San Jose, Calif., campus, where she received care from Palmer San Jose alumnus Steven Capobianco, D.C.
Each year, more than 80 students from approximately 20 countries arrive at Palmer, adding cultural diversity to the College and the chiropractic profession. Today, Palmer alumni practice in more than 60 countries.
