Patients Seen: All Ages

Help­ing peo­ple is rea­son I rea­son I became a phys­i­cal ther­a­pist. I treat every patient as an indi­vid­ual with their own set of symp­toms, as well as learn about who they are as a per­son. Addi­tion­al­ly, I stay up to date on emerg­ing research and strive to con­tin­ue to learn every­day in order to pro­vide the best pos­si­ble care for my patients.

When I am not work­ing, I like to spend time with my friends/​family, play ulti­mate fris­bee, run, and play the piano.
