Where I am today:
I’m eternally grateful for the wonderful mentors and compassionate pediatric therapists (OT’s, SLP’s, and PT’s) who have come before me and set examples for life-long learning, biological investigation, consideration of the whole patient, dedication and work ethic, and most importantly, personal connection. I truly love what I do and consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunities I’ve had to learn, grow, and develop as a pediatric physical therapist.

Where I’m going:
I’m hopeful to continue to broaden my knowledge of the intricacies of the human body and all its amazing systems, my understanding of human neurological development and integration, and my ability to offer meaningful opportunities for the development of resiliency in young humans.

I would embrace the opportunity to share my experiences and to support you on your journey as a movement specialist through mentorship. I’d also be honored to have the opportunity to help you with your child’s developmental process as a patient, in person or virtually.
