Discovering a Desire to Help

Chiropractor Stillwater, Dr. Ashton SheltonDr. Shelton was taking a course at Oklahoma State University where physicians from different fields were brought in to speak. They would tell the students about their profession, and the students would then write a summary paper. Set on a career in optometry, Dr. Shelton paid little attention to the presentations until a chiropractic school advisor spoke. “Though I’d never been to a chiropractor, it resonated with me. I loved the idea of taking care of someone and helping them feel better.”

Immediately, Dr. Shelton went home and researched chiropractic. She found that doctors of chiropractic care for the whole person, not just individual parts. She knew that this was the way that she could make an impact, and a new career path was discovered.
