Female Student West Campus

Stephanie Johnson has figuratively (and literally) gone “the extra mile” to promote Palmer Chiropractic and help advance the chiropractic profession.

Stephanie has represented Palmer students all over the world!

Stephanie has represented Palmer students all over the world!

The Goleta, Calif., native has already ventured to Washington, D.C., (twice!) as a San Jose, Calif., campus student delegate for the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) National Chiropractic Legislative Conference (NCLC) in Washington, D.C.; to Texas as the West campus delegate for the 2010 World Congress of Chiropractic Students (WCCS), and, to Brazil, as one of three West campus delegates to attend the 2011 WCCS event; and to Newport, Rhode Island, to attend the 2010 “House of Delegates” meeting, where Stephanie was named SACA National Chair.

In addition to maintaining a busy schedule through her involvement in multiple chiropractic associations and organizations, Stephanie is equally active on campus as president of the WCCS chapter; a member of the Campus Guides; president of the Yoga Club, and a contributing writer for the student newspaper, The Bartlett.

Stephanie is quick to sing the praises of other students who are also active and involved, and she credits the San Jose administration for the students’ “make a difference” spirit.

“Their support and encouragement empowers students to take on substantial and rewarding endeavors,” says Stephanie, who has earned Dean’s List honors every quarter since initiating her chiropractic studies in October 2009.

“It also says that Palmer students ‘get’ that it is our responsibility to leave the chiropractic profession better than we entered it,” notes Stephanie, who is past chair of the SACA American Public Health Association chapter, and past student representative for The Foundation For Chiropractic Progress (F4CP).

A certified yoga instructor, Stephanie also enjoys dancing, snowboarding, camping and traveling. Her athletic achievements include running in the Nike women’s half-marathon as well as full marathons in Las Vegas and Santa Barbara. She also participated in last summer’s ASG/Sports Council 5K Fun Run fundraiser.

Her athletic interests, coupled with her desire to share her passion for health and fitness with others, so they, too, can achieve their health and fitness goals, are part of what motivated her to pursue a chiropractic career.

“After exploring every health/medical profession career I have fancied, my decision to pursue chiropractic stems from being deeply attracted to the excitement and passion that only emanates from career talks involving chiropractic,” says Stephanie, who is now chairing a mentorship committee for the World Congress of Chiropractic Students to increase global membership for the organization.

“I’m 100-percent confident and excited about my career choice. Chiropractic agrees with who I am, who I want to become, and how I want to spend the rest of my life.”
