Practices In: Westmont
Patients Seen: All Ages

I believe the best qual­i­ty of care is pro­vid­ed through active com­mu­ni­ca­tion with each patient to iden­ti­fy their per­son­al goals for ther­a­py. By devel­op­ing an indi­vid­u­al­ized treat­ment plan, my goal is to improve strength, opti­mize func­tion, and allow indi­vid­u­als to return to the dai­ly activ­i­ties that are most impor­tant to them. I strive to stay up to date on the field of phys­i­cal ther­a­py to treat effec­tive­ly and cre­ative­ly. I hope to help patients main­tain a func­tion­al and healthy lifestyle that car­ries on beyond therapy.

Clinical Interests

I enjoy work­ing with patients who have been diag­nosed with or live with neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions such as Parkin­son’s dis­ease, move­ment dis­or­ders, and post stroke. My favorite body part to help per­spec­tive patients with is the shoul­der. I look for­ward to help­ing patients bet­ter under­stand pain and how it affects the human body.

Personal Interests

Out­side of phys­i­cal ther­a­py I enjoy play­ing vol­ley­ball, lis­ten­ing to live music, hik­ing and camp­ing with friends and fam­i­ly, and teach­ing my cat how to be a dog.
