It was in the world of traditional medicine, as an assistant head nurse in a neurosurgical intensive care unit, that Dr. Carroll first noticed the remarkable power of the human body (and spirit) to heal itself. A lecture by a visiting chiropractor ignited her passion to move in this new direction. Four years later, in 1990, she had graduated from New York Chiropractic College and soon moved to Maine to be with her husband, Doug, and open her first practice with Dr. Meg. Three children and 32 years later, she is just as passionate about helping others to connect with the miracle of their own physical, emotional, and spiritual power.
In Doctor Carroll’s words:
My friends and family thought I was crazy going back to postgraduate studies for 4+ years after finishing a rigorous baccalaureate degree in nursing, and being a successful intensive care nurse,” remembers Dr. Carroll.
I even remember the chiropractic school recruiter questioning me about leaving a lucrative career as an assistant head nurse in a neurosurgical intensive care unit to go back for study and student loans!
The question seemed absurd and only further sparked the desire to follow my passion. I remember how I learned about the chiropractic paradigm, and the principles of the true innate abilities of the body to heal itself, at a lecture given by a chiropractor. This is one of the reasons I am so passionate about educating practice members about how they can take charge of their health. My experience working with nervous system and brain injury patients and realizing that the power to heal came from within, fueled my passion to begin chiropractic school.
In 1990, I graduated from New York Chiropractic College after receiving several awards, including peer counseling and a distinguished service award. My husband Doug and I have three fantastic children, Jaime, Josh, and Tim. All three are incredibly fit, health-conscious children.
I hope we can be a source of hope and healing for you. It is my personal goal to serve as many people as I can through the healing of chiropractic.
