About Matt Rushford

Matt Rushford has spent the last 25 years as a holistic family chiropractor, specializing in pediatrics and perinatal care. He brings this wealth of clinical field experience into the classroom and every interaction with students and colleagues.

Dr. Rushford spent his early college years studying comparative religion and theater before transitioning to his chiropractic training. This helps him bring diversity, wisdom, and entertainment into his classes. An avid outdoorsman, his love and respect for nature informs his teaching of biological sciences from an evolutionary and holistic perspective.

He believes that the key to healing, on a personal or planetary level, is to become aware of our interconnectedness and the innate need for that interconnectedness to be reflected in ourselves, our communities, and our planet.
