As an undergraduate at Lenoir-Rhyne University, Jake was active in his support of Push America. His organization of service and fundraising events, as well as his participation in national events, earned him Lenoir-Rhyne's Greek Man of the Year Award in 2009. After completing Journey of Hope South in 2007 as a crew member, he came to understand the power that chiropractic treatment has in helping people with disabilities. After returning to campus, he changed his major to pre-med, going on to earn his doctorate in chiropractic. Jake has recently opened his doors with Ambrose Chiropractic in Richmond, Va., and gives back to the community by providing nutrition and Chiropractic services to local firehouses.
