Being able to partner with my patients is so rewarding. I especially like educating patients on how to correct faulty movement patterns so that they get better and stay better.
WHY I BECAME A PHYSICAL THERAPIST:
I suffered an ACL injury as a gymnast and spent many months in PT. I had a fantastic PT who was great at teaching, motivating and treating me. I knew right then that I’d pursue being a PT in order to help others like he helped me.

I love teaching Pilates, rollerblading, recreating on the lake and anything else outdoors. I typically drag my husband and kids along with me!
