EDUCATION FORMS THE FOUNDATION OF EFFECTIVE CARE

"As a student, I worked hard to attain the best physical therapy education possible.
And now that I have nearly twenty years of practice experience, I'm even more grateful for the knowledge and skills I received. I rely on my education every day -- to relieve pain, restore mobility, and help people achieve lasting healing."

SHARING KNOWLEDGE WITH OTHERS

"For me, it's not enough to have mastered the knowledge and skills required to be an effective physical therapist. An important part of my profession is extending what I've learned to students and other professionals."

FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE HELPS HER TREAT SPORTS INJURIES

"My years as a world-class athlete have given me valuable firsthand experience with sports injuries. Because I've struggled with injuries myself, I understand the importance or relieving pain fast, and speeding the healing process so that athletes can continue to pursue their goals."

ALWAYS ACTIVE IN THE COMMUNITY

"I enjoy sharing my times with others - whether I'm teaching young people the value of fitness and athletic competition, or volunteering my skills to expectant mothers. It's my way of giving back to the community that has given me so much.
