After serving an L.D.S. mission to Sapporo, Japan, he attended undergraduate school at Brigham Young University where he earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Zoology.
While attending B. Y. U. he worked as a student mentor for kids in the foster care program, as a staff member at a facility for the mentally ill, and as a personal care attendant for a fellow student with muscular dystrophy. These opportunities helped shape his desire to create a chiropractic clinic built on a foundation of service first.
While attending B. Y. U. Micah met and married Martine Rigby. Martine was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where she lived until she was eight years old.
Her family moved to France where she was raised. After serving a mission in England she came to America to continue her education.
The day after getting married, Micah and Martine moved to California to attend chiropractic school (perhaps not the most romantic of honeymoons).
While attending school Micah worked as the head of the university’s student mentor program. He was in charge of pairing students who were excelling in their studies with underclassmen or students who needed assistance in grasping difficult concepts in their classes.
Via long hours of study Micah was able to graduate with highest honors third in his class. Seeking a smaller town environment to raise their children, Micah and Martine settled in Tremonton, Utah and opened their practice in 2002.
