About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

I always knew when I was a child that I would be working as a medical professional.  I guess because most of my family is in the medical field.  I chose Physical Therapy because it helps individuals to restore function and promote overall fitness and a health in a natural way. 

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

Being a Physical Therapist is very rewarding.  I have the chance to make a meaningful difference in people's lives.  I also have the opportunity to help patients make progress through treatment and return to activities they love. 

How do you connect with your patients?

Establishing good rapport, being a good listener and being sensitive to patient's feelings are some of the best ways I connect to my patients. 

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

I love to read, travel, spend time with my family and especially playing with my kids. 

What is your advice for your patients?

The importance of a good physical rehabilitation not only lies in physical therapy treatment but also in the compliance of home exercise programs.
