Biography

Kitchen was born in England, while his father, a major general in the Canadian Armed Forces, was stationed there. When he was sixteen years old, he was hit by a drunk driver while riding a bicycle. As a result, he is deaf in his left ear. He lived in Canada, England, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and the United States as a child. He attended the University of Waterloo, graduating with a B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Kinesiology, before attending the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C). Kitchen later completed a two-year specialty fellowship in chiropractic clinical sciences, including a six-month residency at the Royal University Hospital Department of Orthopedics in Saskatoon as well as a postgraduate degree in educational administration at the University of Regina.

Kitchen owned and operated a private chiropractic clinic for the past 26 years in Estevan and is a board member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Saskatchewan (CAS); a registrar for the CAS for 6 years; and president of the Canadian Federation of Chiropractic Regulatory, Educational and Accreditation Board (CRCREAB) for 4 years.[3]

Personal

Kitchen is married to his wife, Donna, and has three grown children, Andrew, Kathryn and Stephen.
