I have been fascinated with the workings of the human body since I was a young child. I remember doing grade school projects and making models of bones, muscles, and organs and spending hours looking at diagrams and pictures of the different body systems. Playing sports and being very active as a child and a young adult only increased this interest. I chose physical therapy as a career because I love interacting with people from all walks of life and getting to know them, not just their injury. What makes this so rewarding is the day to day experience of witnessing the role of the human spirit in health, wellness, and recovery. I have been privileged to watch people overcome tremendous odds to regain health and healing. My own experience with injuries and life challenges has also shaped the way I try to affirm my patients and guide them through the healing process. Creating the right environment is the first and most critical step in helping people achieve their health related goals.

My favorite “part” of the body to work with is the human spirit. When clients are able to learn and assimilate healthy behavior, they feel better, and this encourages them to continue moving forward with their health after their physical therapy experience.
