While attending The University of Michigan, she did an internship at their weight management clinic and also at the Domino's Pizza World HQ Corporate Fitness Center. Her primary responsibilities were doing body composition testing, setting up nutrition and exercise programs as well as creating incentive programs and wellness plans for the clients. Following graduation, she worked in physical therapy rehabilitation for 5 years as an orthopedic rehabilitation assistant. Dr. Ruffin worked as a personal trainer and aerobics instructor while attending U of M. She eventually added certifications for Spinning and aerobics to her resume and continued to train and teach fitness for many years. She has also been an athlete all of her life. This combination has given Dr. Ruffin a confident grasp of how to help you heal from an injury, reduce your risk of injury, as well as be a top performer in your sport and in life. She graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose CA in 1998 with a D.C. degree (Doctor of Chiropractic). She has a great understanding of how well the combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy, and nutrition can give you the life you desire. She is a Certified First Line Therapy Health, Lifestyle, and Nutrition Physician and has a passion for helping you and your family get their health on track and build a new lifestyle to keep it there. Her favorite activities involve mountain biking, yoga, softball, volleyball, rock climbing, boating, and just about any other outdoor activity. Her burning desire is to climb Yosemite's Half Dome and live in a home with a vineyard in Napa Valley, California.

Patient Comments (1)
South Lyon, MI |
Staff is not courteous and are too busy patrolling their parking lot and yelling outside at moms dropping off their children at school on the first day. Very unprofessional.
We are more than happy to allow parking in our lot after business hours. There are 2 busy practices operating in this building with very few spots and we need to keep them available for our clients, especially our elderly ones. I assure you if you ever became a client you would have an excellent experience!
