PT, DPT, OCS, CMPT
Being a Physical Therapist allows me to help “solve a puzzle” that may otherwise remain unsolved. I believe my most powerful tool as a PT is to listen to the root of the problem and, in turn, help patients understand how to begin the road to healing. I also enjoy working with other members of the healthcare team to bridge the gap between diagnosis and function in creating a truly personalized plan of care. I hope to motivate others as I become their partner in recovery.
