My Passion for Healthcare

I have enjoyed learning about the human body since my grade school years. I was first introduced to physical therapy when I was a teenage physical therapy patient following a back injury I sustained in a car accident. I have been a physical therapist since the year 2000 and a pediatric P.T. since 2005. Working with children and adolescents brings me joy. What I enjoy most about the profession is to teach people how exercise and movement can heal and improve lives, and then be inspired by witnessing the patient's hard work and milestones towards achieving their goals.

Services I Provide

  1. Developmental Therapy in NICU
  2. Inpatient Physical Therapy
  3. Wound Care

My Clinical Focus

I am passionate about supporting and organizing our team of physical therapists to provide the best rehabilitation for children and adolescents in the inpatient setting. I also enjoy providing physical therapy in the fast-paced settings of critical and acute care for patients who are as young as neonates and up to young adulthood. I enjoy teaching patients and families new techniques for movement, exercises, and guided practice to facilitate return to function. Patients I see vary greatly with physical therapy goals around basic functional movements, ambulation, play, or sports.
