Cynthia Boyd, D.C.
League of Chiropractic Women
Stepping In Where Needed
And Stepping Up the Game
TCL is pleased to honor Dr. Cynthia Boyd for exemplifying the kind of courageous leadership that is always ready for the next challenge. In particular, we would like to recognize Dr. Boyd for her role in the founding of the premiere chiropractic women’s organization, the League of Chiropractic Women (LCW). This organization is meant to offer equity in experience and opportunity within a profession that grew and thrived as a result of the contributions made by women coming into their own in a new century.
Today, however, few women occupy leadership positions within the profession and the LCW is filling the vacuum. Dr. Boyd is also well known for her commitment to serving the needs of Life University over the course of her career in professional education, successfully filling critical leadership voids in positions as diverse as chief of staff of clinics, director of alumni and development and executive office chief of staff.
Dr. Boyd currently serves as Life University’s Vice-President for Marketing and Enrollment. Without Dr. Boyd’s brand of leadership – stalwart, fair, forward-thinking and optimistic -Life University would not be where it is today. Nor would it be as rich in spirit.
TCL: For which professional achievements will you most want to be remembered?
Boyd: There are three contributions I’d be pleased to be remembered for:
- The founding of an organization, the League of Chiropractic Women, that truly nourishes women in chiropractic by providing courses, seminars, workshops, mentorship and sisterhood (physically and virtually).
- Being part of a team that believed in and worked towards a course of action to rebuild Life University.
- Daily efforts to assist prospective students in achieving their dreams to serve humanity via their Lasting Purpose and Vitalistic philosophy.
TCL: What projects or activities are you working on that are exciting to you and that you’d like to share with others?
Boyd: I’m honored to have been asked to serve on the Board for the Cobb County Boys & Girls Clubs as well as on the Executive Board for the Georgia Association of Women in Higher Education (GAWHE). Both of these organizations allow me to express Lasting Purpose within my community as a contributing citizen and within the larger educational community, working toward equity for women in opportunity and contributions.
