November 3, 2014 — The Life University (LIFE) Board of Trustees has selected Selina Sigafoose-Jackson, DC, as its newest member. Sigafoose-Jackson was raised in a chiropractic family, with her parents, the late and legendary James Sigafoose, DC, and his wife Patsy Sigafoose being co-founders of LIFE in 1974; thus, chiropractic has been the foundation for her entire life.
“It was the basis in all decision making—from whom I married, to raising children, how we ate, my career path and passion,” Sigafoose-Jackson said regarding the profession’s impact on her life.
Sigafoose-Jackson is a 1989 graduate of LIFE’s Doctor of Chiropractic Program (DCP) and is one of six siblings to graduate from the university, which at the time of her graduation was still named Life Chiropractic College.
“When I graduated, I always knew that I’d be back on campus in some capacity in the future,” Sigafoose-Jackson said. “When the university was in need of support in 2004, we did all we could to get LIFE back on its feet and have stayed involved ever since.”
Sigafoose-Jackson is a very accomplished chiropractor, practicing with her husband and fellow 1989 LIFE graduate Kevin Jackson, DC, at Sigafoose and Jackson Family Chiropractic since 1991 in York, Pennsylvania. She has served as a member of the International Chiropractors Association (ICA) since graduating and is currently the association’s secretary treasurer. She is also one of the founders and co-treasurers of the League of Chiropractic Women (LCW) and a member of the Chiropractic Fellowship of Pennsylvania.
“My heart is with Life University, and it has been here since it was Life Chiropractic College,” she said of being selected for LIFE’s Board of Trustees. “I’m deeply honored, in awe, and am looking forward to being part of something so magnificent.”
