I have been a team mem­ber at DuPage Med­ical Group work­ing in the Occu­pa­tion­al Ther­a­py Depart­ment with a spe­cial­ty in hands since 2006. Every­day, I am grate­ful to work in a pro­fes­sion that I am still enthu­si­as­tic and pas­sion­ate about since I grad­u­at­ed in 1991! I gen­uine­ly want to know what is impor­tant to you and how your injury is pre­vent­ing from doing the things you love to do. I believe you are the key to your well­ness. I am invest­ed in you and will take the time to pro­vide edu­ca­tion on the pur­pose of the exer­cis­es issued in your cus­tomized home pro­gram. Your par­tic­i­pa­tion in these exer­cis­es are the key to your suc­cess! My focus is Edu­ca­tion and Pre­ven­tion to restore your joy and par­tic­i­pa­tion in your most val­ued activ­i­ties. I am ded­i­cat­ed to a close work­ing rela­tion­ship with our sur­geons and refer­ring physi­cians and part­ner­ing clin­i­cians and keep them updat­ed on your progress. Togeth­er we are your health care team expect­ing great suc­cess for you!
