“I value that our profession allows us, as clinicians, to spend time and interact with our patients to determine pathology and movement dysfunction. I enjoy taking time to educate others on what their symptoms mean and how to improve their health. I believe that both a thorough orthopedic and neurological physical therapy examination paves the way for effective treatments. My advanced training with assessing joint movements and performing a comprehensive assessment of the spine and joints has allowed me to determine the best course of treatment. Routinely re-assessing the patient and seeing that they are on the right track is imperative. I find that physical therapy is an art and a science as rehabilitation is tailored to the person. I cherish being a part of an individual’s recovery and return to function.”
