Treatment Areas of Interest/Specialties
I really enjoy treating patients with neurological conditions including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and CVA. I also find working with deconditioned geriatric patients seeking to improve strength, balance, and function extremely rewarding. As a former softball college player and coach, I also love working with athletes, especially overhead athletes, looking to return to sport and improve performance.
Why I became a physical therapist
Growing up I witnessed so many people in my life who benefited from physical therapy – my grandfather who was able to improve his walking after a stroke, my teammates rehabbing ankle sprains and ACL tears, and even myself after injuring my shoulder playing softball. I saw the impact a physical therapist could have on function and helping people return to doing the activities they love and value. I wanted to contribute to that process and have a positive impact on the lives of those around me.
What do you feel are the most important qualities in a physical therapist?
Compassion, honesty, and relatability. These qualities help build trust between patients and therapists, which is important in achieving goals and making progress.
Softball (coaching and playing), reading, trying new breweries, writing short stories and poetry, traveling.
