Dr. John Fullwood Employee Spotlight

John Fullwood is the Medical Manager here at Diamond Ranch Academy. He is a Dr. of Chiropractic in Great Britain, and worked in 2 highly successful clinics in the North of England prior to moving the US.

John grew up on Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England. Like many “Yorkshire lads” football (soccer) was his life. He played for a number of teams including high school, college, and university and for a local town team. He served and LDS mission to Scotland, which he claims changed his perspective on life and led him to re think his future career options. John wanted to interact with people from all walks of life. This goal led him to a Bachelors of Science degree in chiropractic from the University of Glamorgan, South Wales. He holds professional memberships in the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and the European Academy of Chiropractic (EAC).

John moved to Southern Utah in January 2008 and fell in love with the rugged mountains and desert landscape, which is such a contrast to his homeland. He loves his family life and spends much of his free time with his wife and children exploring his new surroundings.

John really enjoys the students and Diamond Ranch Academy. He said there is never a dull moment and he learns from them all of the time. He feels Diamond Ranch Academy gives him an opportunity to assist with the health aspect of their care while hopefully providing an example to aid them in both current and future ventures.

What John’s supervisor Jan B. says about him:
John is our “token Brit.”, having moved his family from Southport, England only 18months ago. Have you noticed how some of the students (and staff) have become adept at speaking “English” over the past months?  

Having a doctoral degree in chiropractic in England, John will be taking board exams in the U.S. of A. sometime within this next year. We are already mourning the fact that, as much as he loves us, he may eventually move on to further his career!

John is mild mannered (like Clark Kent) but bold, as he loves nothing better than flying down a snow packed mountain on a snow board, or maneuvering a soccer ball through a field of half-crazed competitors.
