Chad was born and raised in the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area, and recently graduated from Michigan State University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Health Promotion. Chad has always been a strong believer in the healing properties of cannabis, but it was not until he experienced early on-set arthritis in his hip and began losing mobility that he became a true advocate for this amazing plant. Since being a patient, he has completely regulated his pain by pharmaceutical-free means, and wants to help his community of Ann Arbor to reap similarly amazing health benefits. As one of Om’s Patient Consultants, Chad values making all patients that come through our doors feel welcome, heard, and supported. Outside of Om Chad likes to spend his time traveling, enjoying good food with family, and taking his dog Ace though Ann Arbor’s nature trails.
