Current Role Working with Athletes

In my clinical practice, I treat a variety of athletic injuries including acute and chronic issues. I work with a variety of strength, endurance and hybrid athletes in the young and adult populations. I enjoy the challenges of helping athletes train around acute injuries and helping them build the strength to overcome persistent ones. I am very interested in working with young female athletes and the specific challenges they present with. 

I am also a certified Sport First Responder and have experience with local football teams, providing taping services, on-field assessment and treatment of injuries, as well as return-to-play decisions.

Professional Philosophy

The body is great at healing itself. I aim to create the right environment for healing through education, graded exercise exposure and manual therapy when needed. This gives patients the tools they need to gain the skills and confidence needed to work through injuries while minimizing their dependence on me.
