I came to UB in 1999 on a soccer scholarship to study biology. The first years were hard for me because of the language barrier but I had good friends and teachers that helped me. Everyday going to soccer practice I walked past the College of Chiropractic, and I had no clue what chiropractic was. I had to look it up in a dictionary. It fascinated me straight away and from then I knew what my profession would be.
After I got my BS in biology I started the chiropractic program in spring 2002. The program surprised me in a good way from the beginning and throughout the 4 years. The thing I liked most about UBCC was its outstanding faculty; they were both professional and personal. I also liked how the program was build up; all the basics were covered very well, everything from anatomy to adjusting, and how to approach patients. Even though the program was very intense throughout these four years I loved every minute of it.
Finally, I want to thank UBCC for giving me the confidence to open up my own practice and to introduce chiropractic profession to Icelanders, because when I graduated in December 2005 I was only the 6th chiropractor in Iceland.
