What do you do?
Kandi Simon

Where do you work and what is your title?
       I’m a chiropractor working at Lowenstein Chiropractic Center.
What do you do there and/or what are you responsible for?
       I teach patients of all ages how the nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and function of the body, and how if there is any interference along the nervous system pathway or with bone alignment, it results in pain, malfunction, disease and various other common health conditions. Through examination and treatment, I locate these problems and interferences within the body and help remove them, allowing the body to heal and function at its optimal level without the use of drugs. I also teach specific exercises to help patients correct spinal and postural imbalances.
How long have you been doing this kind of work (total)? How long on the Westside?
       I have been involved in chiropractic since 1999 – on the Westside since spring of this year.
What do you like best about it (other than quitting time)?
       The support I receive. It’s really a blessing to share a great office space with special people, Dr. Marc and Kim, while striving to build my own practice.
If you could change one thing (other than pay), what would it be?
       I’d stop myself from being such a pencil thief before I get in big trouble with Kim. I swear I’m working on it, but those pencils still seem to keep “traveling” with me from time to time. Whoops!
What part of your work did your training/education never prepare you for?
       All the steps and details involved in starting your own business. It’s definitely been a learning process, but thankfully I have great mentors!
What makes working on the Westside special?
       I love the friendly people and amazing scenery. Rain or shine, it’s beautiful every day!
