WHY ARE YOU A SPORTS, PRENATAL, AND PEDIATRIC CHIROPRACTOR?
Dr. Goodman is very competitive by nature. Which is likely why she continues to be an avid (decent) athlete, playing soccer every week, CrossFitting nearly daily with the occasional competition, and golfing as often as time allows. She is also super competitive at board games by the way. Her competitive nature and interest in preventative health care has driven her to strive to know more than anyone else about her chiropractic specialties. Having had two fun and easy pregnancies along with two unmedicated births while maintaining her fitness lifestyle, motivated Dr. Goodman to combine existing and growing sports chiropractic background with her prenatal expertise. With kids now in middle and high school, Dr. Goodman’s practice continued to evolve to adapt to her community including newborn, toddler, preschool, grades school and middle/high school aged kids.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
Running the business of Wash Park Chiropractic is truly her calling and passion. She generally has to tear herself away from planning the growth and evolution of patient care and her stellar team to spend time with her family and community! In addition to CrossFit, Soccer and Golf, Dr. Goodman spends a lot of her free time giving back to the community. She loves to teach and can be spotted at Metro State University, South High School or Denver Waldorf School guest lecturing or sharing Wash Park Chiro swag. She also teaches several taping and mobility classes at local gyms, or to doula groups that provide support and assistance during childbirth. Dr. Goodman has a healthy obsession for social media and uses it to educate our community on self care. During the months of January-June she spends a lot of free time planning her labor of love, the Kingsbury Open. She is also an avid reader/audiobook listener and her favorite books are Lord of the Flies, Twilight and America’s First Daughter. One top secret nugget of knowledge is that you won’t often find Dr. G on the hiking trail or camping in a tent (shhh).
