Grad to Faculty, Dr. Jeana Voorhies Chose NYCC for its Academics, Opportunities and Location
JEANA VOORHIES, D.C. '01,
Assistant Professor and Interim Assistant Dean of Preclinical Chiropractic Education
Jeana Voorhies, D.C. '01, knew that teaching was in her blood. As much as she loves caring for patients, Voorhies felt like something was missing. "When the opportunity arose to join the amazing faculty here at NYCC, I jumped at the chance," said Voorhies, an educational administrator and assistant professor at the College for five years, who recently received NYCC's Faculty Excellence Award.
The annual honor acknowledges exemplary professors for their significant contribution to teaching students who become quality healthcare professionals. She first learned about chiropractic care as a high school and college athlete seeking treatment for her own injuries. The natural approach to healing and pursuing optimal health resonated with Voorhies. "It just fit so well with my own beliefs," she said.
Looking to pursue a career in chiropractic, Voorhies visited NYCC from Pennsylvania. She fell in love with the beauty and serenity of the campus, Seneca Falls and the Finger Lakes region. She was also excited about the rigor of the curriculum. "NYCC stood above all other colleges for me with regard to academics, experiences and location."
