Biography of Dr. Susan Myshka
Susan Myshka was born in 1960 to Bob and Bruxie Myshka, a military family stationed in Lafayette, Indiana. Because of her father’s military service, Susan’s family moved several times during her early childhood, during which Susan gained a deep appreciation for the commitment and sacrifice by members of the armed services and their families.
From 1970 to 1972, the Myshka family demonstrated its commitment to values such as faith, self-sacrifice, and service by engaging in missions work to underprivileged communities. In August, 1972, they moved to Jonesboro, where Susan attended Dixie Elementary, Brookland Junior High, and Brookland High School, where she excelled in athletics and graduated Valedictorian in 1979.
Susan then attended Arkansas State University (ASU) in Jonesboro. While at ASU, Susan’s desire to enter a field where she could help and serve people motivated her to select a career in chiropractic care. After attending ASU, Susan attended Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, Georgia, graduating cum laude with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1984. Susan is now licensed in both Arkansas and Wisconsin, and is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, the Arkansas Chiropractic Association, the Arkansas Chiropractic Society, and the World Chiropractic Alliance.
Upon graduation, Susan started her own practice in Jonesboro. While the vast majority of small businesses fail within two years, Susan’s determination, tenacity and passion for helping people motivated her to beat the odds, developing one of the most successful chiropractic practices in the state.
Susan’s service to others and to the community is illustrated by activities such as conducting bi-annual food drives, sponsoring Toys-for-Tots campaigns, sponsorship of a 5k run to raise proceeds for the United Way, and doing volunteer ministry work to female inmates at the Craighead County correctional facility. Susan attends church at the First Assembly of God in Jonesboro, and is a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the National Rifle Association.
