My Passion for Healthcare

I grew up in a multi-sport, active family, and was a competitive swimmer and dancer. I injured my shoulder swimming, and attended physical therapy, and at that point I knew this was the profession for me.

  2. Sports Medicine
  3. Hemophilia/Bleeding Disorders
  4. Injury Prevention

My Clinical Focus

After graduating with my Bachelor’s Degree, I moved to Los Angeles, where I worked at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), and specialized in pediatric and adolescent orthopedics, sports injury, injury prevention and bleeding disorders. While at CHOC I participated in many multi-disciplinary research studies. I was an Adjunct Professor at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles, where I taught Pediatric Orthopedics. I have spoken about physical therapy and exercise management of bleeding disorders at regional and national Hemophilia Meetings.
