Athletic & Training Background
I grew up playing every sport I could. My primary interests growing up were basketball, water polo and swimming, but I have also been involved in golf, volleyball, baseball, football, soccer, gymnastics, climbing, powerlifting, running and triathlons throughout the years. I began to struggle with injuries during and after college. I know the challenges that come along with being an injured athlete and feeling like most health care professionals don't have the right mindset. I love helping people get back to their sport and life.
Current Role Working with Athletes
I work with athletes of all ages and ability levels. Recent patients include young gymnasts, high school basketball, soccer and lacrosse players, middle aged runners, triathletes and barbell sport athletes.
I work in a cash based environment because I believe it allows me to provide a superior, patient centered experience and get better results in less time. I love to work with active, motivated individuals who see their health as an investment, not an expense and see physical activity as an imperative part of their lives.
My approach focuses on education, exercise and creating a real relationship with my patients. Manual therapy and modalities are used sparingly and when appropriate. I believe the most valuable thing I can do for my patients is to help them realize that they have the power to control their situation and recover from pain and injury.
Be a leader, but do not offend by superiority.
Be wise, but do not assume to know more than others.
Be strong, but have no need to prove it.
