My pre­vi­ous expe­ri­ence treat­ing a broad spec­trum of gen­er­al to com­plex ortho­pe­dic and neu­ro­log­ic patient diag­noses has con­tributed to a per­son­al phi­los­o­phy of address­ing the body as a whole, con­sid­er­ing the many inter­con­nect­ed sys­tems and dai­ly activ­i­ties that may con­tribute to or per­pet­u­ate pain and func­tion­al mobil­i­ty lim­i­ta­tions. I strive to lis­ten to patients’ needs and part­ner with them to estab­lish per­ti­nent goals and treat­ment inter­ven­tions that can lead to achieve­ment of an over­all high­er qual­i­ty of dai­ly living.


Clinical Interests

Although my expe­ri­ence is diverse and I enjoy assist­ing all clients toward achiev­ing their per­son­al goals, my great­est area of inter­est is treat­ing con­di­tions relat­ed to the spine. I fre­quent­ly uti­lize mus­cle ener­gy tech­niques and man­u­al ther­a­peu­tic inter­ven­tions along with an indi­vid­u­al­ized home exer­cise pro­gram to facil­i­tate gains from therapy.

Personal Interests

I enjoy mod­el­ing a healthy lifestyle for my four young chil­dren, spend­ing time out­doors on fam­i­ly walks at var­i­ous for­est pre­serves and fre­quent­ing the zoo. I also try to mod­el lead­er­ship and com­mu­ni­ty ser­vice by lead­ing my daugh­ters’ Girl Scout troops. In any remain­ing free time, you would find me curled up read­ing a book.
