A Calgary native, Dr. Boyd has roots in Longview but has also lived in many other parts of the world. Prior to beginning her chiropractic education, she professionally competed and trained showjumping horses South of Calgary. Horses were her introduction to chiropractic care; once she witnessed the performance results the equine athletes had she sought her own chiropractic care to keep her in the saddle.
