She moved to Kalamazoo and received her Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science from Western Michigan University. Throughout Dr. Megan’s life experiences and schooling she developed a great desire to focus on holistic and alternative health care methods. During her undergraduate program she began researching chiropractic colleges and set out to start the program at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
