February Luncheon Speaker – Kevin O’Conner

Kevin and his wife, Kathy, have lived on Colorado 38 years – 19 in Lakewood and 19 in Golden. They have three grown children — two in Colorado, and one in Seattle, and six grandchildren. Both have been actively involved with their communities as volunteers in a variety of organizations, including PTA, the Golden History Museums, The Family Tree and the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra. On local Boards, Kevin has served as Treasurer of the Green Mountain Swim Club for 6 years; as Board Chair of the Friends of the Astor House Museum and Clear Creek History Park for 6 years; has held various positions with the Golden Lions Club for 8 years, especially as Chair of the July 4th Lions Park annual event; and Board member of the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra (JSO) for four years — now in his 3rd year as Chair.

The JSO is a 75-member non-profit volunteer orchestra, presenting the many challenges that face all non-profits, such as fundraising, marketing and Board membership to fit the diverse needs of the organization. Kevin and Kathy have been attending JSO events for about 20 years as their daughter plays in the first violin section. They have been actively involved as volunteers for about 8 years. Kevin initiated the JSO’s King Soopers Reloadable Gift Card Program in 2009, which has raised more than $35,000 since its inception. A similar program for Safeway cards has added more than $3,000 since being brought on-line in 2014.

Kevin and family came to Colorado from Delaware in 1978, when Kevin was offered a position at the Solar Energy Research institute in Golden, which later became the National Renewable Lab (NREL). In the last 16 years at NREL he worked in the field of alternative fuels for transportation. He was honored as the “Father of the Alternative Fuels Database”. He is an active bicyclist, loves traveling, time with family, and especially enjoys his woodworking pursuits. Kevin has an MA in sociology and urban affairs from the University of Delaware.

Dr. Nick Kapustka graduated from Sherman College of Chiropractic in 2004 where he earned the honors of Magna Cum Laude and the Rising Star award given to a recent Sherman College graduate who has demonstrated exceptional achievements and service in the community.

Dr. Nick has been a part thousands of family's health journeys and truly enjoys supporting parents and children in their specific health needs.

January 5 Minute Spotlight – Homeopathy First

As a young gymnast I looked to alternative medicine for my injuries. I was drawn toward the healing arts, but was not convinced that western medicine was the best or the only way. I considered Chiropractic College, but chose PA school for the flexibility it allowed. My first job was in Three Rivers, CA with the late Dr. A.J. Rice. He was my mentor in Homeopathy and I was extremely fortunate to have had hands on training from him while also attending Homeopathy School of Colorado (now Homeopathy School International) for a 500 hour certification.

While I have been practicing as an allopathic provider for many years now, I prefer to use homeopathic treatment. I find homeopathy to be a safer and gentler option than western medicine. Homeopathy can lead to better and longer lasting results with less side effects. When treating my own friends and family I always choose homeopathy first, which led to the name of my practice. I believe that western medicine has it's place, but it should be what is used as a last resort for chronic conditions.
