Chirobloom Where You’re Planted
Like many of her colleagues, Dr. Pam Jarboe became a chiropractor after witnessing firsthand the good that correcting subluxations can do, even in the most adverse of circumstances. Perhaps unlike other chiropractors, Dr. Jarboe began her chiropractic career as a chiropractic assistant. In this role, she was able to accompany her chiropractor employer on visits to check and adjust children who were abandoned, drug addicted and/or who had been diagnosed with AIDS. As a result of the remarkable changes she witnessed – and experienced – she enrolled in chiropractic college and has been practicing since graduating in 1995.
In addition to being a practicing doc, she has become a much sought-after speaker and coach, where she applies her decades of practice experience – along with a healthy and happy dose of humor – in the service of other docs and their professional and practice development.
Today’s Chiropractic Leadership is pleased to honor Dr. Jarboe as one of the profession’s Mavericks, Geniuses and Icons for her years of service to the profession, including her role as one of the founders of the League of Chiropractic Women.
To convey a sense of her contributions, here’s a brief Q&A with Dr. Jarboe.
Q: For which professional (and/or personal) achievements will you most want to be acknowledged?
A: The greatest personal “achievement” of my life will be the gift of my two beautiful sons to this world. They are as kind and connected humans as they can be in this world.
Professionally, I have had several practices in which I have adjusted many thousands of spines. It has been my greatest honor to deliver transformative chiropractic care to the families of the communities in which I have lived. My recent contributions to the profession include writing, speaking and coaching, as well as serving on the board of the Massachusetts Alliance for Chiropractic Philosophy (MACP) and the League of Chiropractic Women (LCW).
Q: What project are you working on now (or have worked on recently) that you are most excited about and would like more people to know about?
A: I love my company, Chirobloom.com, a place for heart-centered chiropractors to get skills to deliver their great work in their communities and also to be supported and renewed.
Q: What articles, blog posts, and/or press releases have been written about this project?
A: I have a blog on my website and I have been a featured guest on many chiropractic podcasts such at the Chiropractic Philanthropist (available as a podcast in iTunes), Spinal Column Radio, Women Seeking Wellness, and more. I am a regular feature on On Purpose with Dr. Christopher Kent and Dr. Patrick Gentempo.
