A POWERFUL EDUCATION LEADS TO POWERFUL HEALING

"I rely in extensive training and years of experience to give my patients high-quality care. But the most powerful tool I have is my ability to communicate -- to effectively teach and encourage patients throughout the healing process."

HELPING OTHERS MASTER THERAPY SKILLS

"Our knowledge of how the various elements of the body interact is always being updated. I'm proud to help spread that knowledge by teaching courses to other physical therapists. It’s an important part of expanding and improving our profession."

EMPHASIZING THE VALUE OF ERGONOMICS

"An important part of my practice is conducting ergonomic evaluations for local companies. By examining how employees function in the workplace, I can teach them the importance of good posture and body mechanics, and show them how to use their equipment correctly. This helps business owners establish a healthy work environment, and avoid future expenses due to injuries."

ALWAYS INVOLVED PROFESSIONALLY

"One way I stay informed about new developments is through professional organizations. I meet with and learn from other physical therapists about what's working and what isn't."
