I believe in treating the whole person and not just the injury or pain that has brought them in for therapy. I feel we need to be healthy: mind, body and soul. Helping someone through their injury and pain to get back to their prior lifestyle, or to make progress towards lifestyle changes, is my ultimate goal. I also strive to achieve that each patient understands the WHY behind the therapy recommendations; for this results in improved self-help for my patients to better manage their symptoms.

Growing up I was a 4 season athlete and school leader in many clubs and organizations. My parents always told me I should be a teacher and coach high school sports. I have always loved learning and school. My goal was to achieve a doctorate level education, but I was not quite sure what career or degree to choose. I, initially, started out with Pre-Dentistry, then, switched to Pre-Medical school and I even went to out Massage Therapy School! Once I found Physical Therapy, I fell in love with this area of study. It was no longer “work”’ for me, and I felt my brain just "ticked" this way. Ultimately, my parents were right. I am a teacher and I am a coach; I just took the more medical route. I love working with patients and teaching them about their bodies. I volunteer coach for my children and I am always learning and teaching new things. Some of my other hobbies include cooking, singing and hiking with my family.
