What do you like most about your work in the physical therapy space?
I work hard to see a patient as a whole person. It is my greatest desire to have patients leave therapy stating that they feel better than they have in years. Additionally, I have always had a passion for women’s health, orthopedic, and youth fitness/sports patients. I love that I get to combine all of these interests to support my community.
What is one thing you wish everyone knew about the body or physical therapy?
Physical therapy can help you continue to lead an active and healthy life, regardless of any physical limitations you feel you might have. It can be beneficial for everyone!
What do you like to do in your free time?
My husband and I love to travel, go to sporting events, play golf, ski and spend time with family. When I am not actively traveling, I also love to garden and landscape.

I love to spend time at home with family!
