Indian Rotary Club Commitments to Service Above Self

Jeff has visited numerous Rotary Club projects in India. This presentation will share some of the stories of efforts of Rotary Clubs to serve the poor and disadvantaged by supporting hospitals, schools, and other activities.

Bio:

Born in Wisconsin, I moved away, and then returned in 1998. I have worked both in industry (consulting and Xerox Corporation) and in higher education (professor of psychology, management and academic dean). 

The Fond du Lac Morning Rotary Club became home and a source of Rotary friends starting in 2000. Travel and international service are passions, along with music, theater, and gardening. My wife Sylvia just retired after years as an institutional researcher and my son Daniel is starting his career as a naturopathic physician.

Bobby is originally from Kansas City. He attended Northern Michigan University while wrestling at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Marquette. Bobby enjoys helping others and has been treated by chiropractors since he was 3 days old. He understands the benefits of preventative chiropractic care to families and kids of all ages, which is why he became a Chiropractor. He is a graduate from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City. Bobby and his wife Kristen have relocated to Wisconsin to be closer to family.

Bobby utilizes a wide range of treatment techniques to help you get better. Manual tissue therapies, ultrasound and muscle stimulation are used when indicated to speed up healing times. Bobby is experienced in workers’ compensation injuries, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and spinal/extremity manipulation. (Just as the spine needs adjusting when misaligned – so do shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and ankles.)

Bobby gets great results treating back pain, sciatica, neck pain, sprain/strains and headaches, also plantar fasciitis and carpal tunnel along with many other conditions. Ask about Bobby’s community service opportunities such as health screenings/fairs, wellness classes, stress free lunch breaks, massage, repetitive lifting techniques and ergonomic instruction available to the public, local organizations and businesses.

Currently, Bobby is a volunteer wrestling coach at Homestead High School, a dedicated member of the Mequon-Thiensville Chamber and Sunrise Rotary. He is also on the leadership committee of the Grafton BNI.

Not Without My Father

In March 2014, Andra became one of the only living persons to walk the 444-mile Natchez Trace. The journey inspired Andra's New York Times best-selling memoir, Not Without My Father, a story about making memories, and about turning “I wish I had” into “I'm glad I did." The Rotarian Magazine profiled Andra in its January 2017 issue as an ordinary Rotarian doing extraordinary things.
