“My treatment philosophy has been influenced by my experiences and education. My residency in Proprioceptive
Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) has taught me that everyone has untapped potential. Every person benefits
most from a unique treatment plan tailored toward their needs. There is no place for cookie cutter generic plans. I
also believe that knowledge is power and patients have the best result when they understand their injuries and all
that it entails.”

SPECIALTY
My specialty is in Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) and orthopedic injuries.

EDUCATION
University Of California San Francisco / San Francisco State,
Doctor of Physical Therapy

PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS
American Physical Therapy Association
California Physical Therapy Association

I BECAME A PHYSICAL THERAPIST BECAUSE …
“I have always been a nurturer and I thrive on helping people. After witnessing my own family members’
rehabilitation processes in Physical Therapy after stroke, spinal surgery, and a personal injury, I knew
Physical Therapy was the field for me. I value the time I get to spend with each patient and how instrumental the
goals are that we work on. I love playing a role in getting people back to their independence and activities that
improve their quality of life, whatever that may be.”

WHAT’S MOST EXCITING ABOUT MY JOB?
“The most exciting part of my job is hearing about my patients’ success what they love to do! Every goal met, no
matter how big, is crucial to improving a patient’s quality of life.”

INTERESTS
I love to golf, walk my dog, cook, and spend time with friends and family.

I BECAME A PHYSICAL THERAPIST BECAUSE…
“We are currently living in an age of opioid crisis and dependency. I have personally seen how people’s lives
are affected due to previous injuries that were not treated properly and then led to opioid dependency. I have
also seen Physical Therapy treat people with chronic pain in a non-invasive manner, allowing patients to
become empowered self-managers of their pain and function.”

WHAT’S MOST EXCITING ABOUT MY JOB?
“Watching patients make gains. I enjoy watching patients’ progression from the start of therapy where they are
more dependent on the therapist and the therapy team until discharge where they have become independent and
met all of their goals.”
