I take a "hands on" approach to treatment. I like to treat my patients as a "whole person", not just as an affected body part.

I became a Physical Therapist because...

"I became a Physical Therapist because of an experience in my early youth. I made the choice at age 16 and never regretted it since. I love people and enjoy helping them."

What's most exciting about my job?

"The challenge of the human puzzle. I am motivated by the satisfaction of helping someone return to function or relieve pain."


"I enjoy family, friends, art, gardening, and laughing."
