Dr. Rebecca Long has always wanted to work with children. Her initial career goal was to become a teacher. She finished her undergraduate work at Washington State University and was on her way to start the teaching program at Western Washington University. The winter before she was to start school, her plans changed! She was sitting in the auditorium at Dr. Lara's graduation and was listening to her father (the commencement speaker at the graduation), tell a story about a little baby getting adjusted. He spoke about the baby's innate sense of calmness, knowing that the adjustment was something good and natural. He talked about chiropractic and pediatrics and how it was the truest form of healthcare. The night of the graduation, Dr. Lara told her that she could impact as many children in chiropractic as she could teaching. Three weeks later she moved to California, finished the last of her prerequisites, and started at Life Chiropractic College West in March of 1997.
Inspired by her sister's stories of working in El Salvador, she and her brother Dr. Michael Long did a mission trip as well in March of 1999. An experience they will never forget! In June of 2000, she graduated from Life Chiropractic College West, made her way back to Washington State and opened Long Chiropractic Center with her sister, Dr. Lara Long, in May of 2001.
In March of 2004, she met her husband Craig while working at the Seattle Bike Expo. It was true love from the beginning. He fully supports her passion in chiropractic and the lifestyle that goes along with it. He is an amazing and loving father to their four children- Francesca, Ryder, Cole, and Logan.
Her scope of practice ranges from infants to the elderly, wellness and family, sports, auto and work injuries. She has fulfilled her desire to have a pediatric practice. There is no one she can't help!!
