Dr. Conn heads the Biophysics Chiropractic Wellness Center, an office that for over 20 years has been dedicated to helping protect their patient’s nervous systems through wellness care, chiropractic adjustments, massage, health education and advocacy.
Bart has always been passionate about serving the community. After receiving his undergraduate degree in Biology from University of Maryland, he worked for the National Institute of Health. He took part in extensive Cancer and AIDS research, then obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic before opening his own business here in San Diego.
He has been extensively involved in the California Chiropractic Association both on the local chapter level, as well as the state, serving as sergeant at arms, secretary, vice president then president from 2004-2018. During that time he was also San Diego’s representative for the state of California.
Bart and his wife, fellow Rotarian Wendy Urushima-Conn, share two daughters: Reiko and Emi. “Getting to be their dad has been my greatest gift.” He enjoys surfing, riding his motorcycle, sailing and is a lover of the natural world. He is interested in our Hands Across the Border committee.
Although Bart isn’t a runner himself, he does keep Wendy running (he says)!
His sponsors are Wendy Urushima-Conn, Valerie Attisha and Joe Horiye.
Emily Hill is the Assistant Dean of Marketing and Recruitment at University of San Diego’s Knauss School of Business, one of the top business schools in the country focused on educating the next generation of ethical business leaders, with an emphasis in stewardship through values-driven enterprise.
After she was born and raised here in San Diego, Emily and her husband moved to Chicago for a brief period before the weather sent them home. She started her career in journalism, but later decided education was a better path. She has since worked at University of California San Diego in their undergraduate enrollment management department; and before that, she spent seven years helping build the marketing and recruitment department for Academy of Our Lady of Peace, where she is also alumna.
Emily joined Rotary to be able to better serve the San Diego community. She is dedicated to donating blood on a monthly basis and volunteers her time mentoring underrepresented undergraduate students at USD. Good news for everyone: she enjoys baking and promises to share her creations!
Emily’s sponsors are Valerie Attisha, David Oates, and Dick Eger.
