Sherman Shares - January 2011
Chiropractic Road Warrior
Sometimes networking can put one on ice, as Jared Sargent, D.C., '05, has discovered. Sargent was recently afforded the opportunity to realize one of his practice goals when he was selected as chiropractor for the Greenville Road Warriors hockey team.
Sargent started his chiropractic career as an associate doctor, but found that solo practice was his calling. In April 2008 Sargent Chiropractic opened its doors to the Mauldin, S.C., community. Sargent maintains that his key to building a thriving practice in a short period of time is his dedication to family chiropractic care as well as his commitment to the community.
He is an active member of the Mauldin Chamber of Commerce, actively participates in fundraising for children's charities, hosts a blood drive at his office every two months, hosts an additional blood drive at the Knights of Columbus on Mauldin Road once a quarter, is involved in various networking groups, and most importantly provides health talks to any group, large or small, that wants to learn about chiropractic.
"It is very rewarding and exciting to be involved with the team at this level," says Sargent. The Road Warriors team is currently in first place in its division. Sargent says networking is the key activity that helped him get the job, allowing him to meet the appropriate contacts and request consideration for the position.Sargent credits Sherman College for his success. "When I was a student, I had some truly wonderful people there to guide and prepare me. I would not be where I am if it were not for the Sherman family. Thank you!"
