As a Neurologic Clinical Specialist, I design treatment sessions based on the unique aspects of the nervous system to optimize recovery of normal movement and function following an injury or during the process of a degenerative disease.  More so, I consider the whole person and evaluate how each body system may be contributing to limitations in your ability to move and function so we can target the primary barriers to efficient movement.    I am passionate about empowering my clients and their families toward finding independence and reclaiming their lives.  I fight hard for my patients' recovery and become a life long advocate.  Whether your injury or disease has left you requiring a lot of assistance just to take care of yourself or you just aren't able to do the things you want to be able to do, I can help. 


In addition to practicing physical therapy, I participate in clinical research,  I am a contributor to a major physical therapy textbook, and I also work to advance the evidence-based practice in the neurologic section as a national speaker at continuing education events.
