GFC Proudly Welcomes Dr. Catherine Njogu to the Team!

 

Hello, and thank you for visiting our website!

A Bit About Dr. Catherine’s Past: Dr. Catherine W. Njogu was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya. After finishing high school, she came to the United States in 1995 to pursue her undergraduate degree at St. Catherine University. She graduated from St. Catherine University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with concentrations in pre-medicine and pre-pharmacy. While working for a research and development company, Dr. Catherine was not exposed to Chiropractic until 2002, when she began receiving chiropractic treatments for neck, back and lower back pain symptoms. Her life changing experience of receiving Chiropractic treatment as a patient led her to pursue the Chiropractic profession at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN in the Fall of 2005.
