Why did you choose Physical Therapy as your profession? It seemed to fit my personality best: allowed me to meet new people every day, utilize my interpersonal skills, integrated my love for sport, as well as provided me with an intellectual challenge.
Why WEST? West provides a family-oriented environment. Not intimidated to approach the top of the food chain or chain of command with any problems or questions that I might have.
Why should a patient choose you as their PT? I believe that I act as both an advocate for the patient as well as a knowledgeable clinician with a strong orthopedic background. Plus, my intentions are to achieve best functional outcomes while making rehab fun.
What’s an interesting fact about yourself: I love to mountain bike, and I’m not a big fan of chocolate

Why did you choose Physical Therapy as your profession? As a young athlete, I found the physical therapist role in the recovery of injury to be fascinating. What is more, the profession is ever changing and I am constantly learning innovative ways to provide quality care in today’s fast paced and high tech world.
Why WEST? Their longstanding history as a company and involvement in the community for 25 years speaks volumes. Small business survival within a very competitive market isn’t easy, particularly for a physical therapy company with the ever changing healthcare system, so they must be doing something right.
Why should a patient choose you as their PT? As a therapist, the patient is my top priority and I truly enjoy helping them overcome the adversities associated with physical injury and serving as an advocate.
What’s an interesting fact about yourself: The list of sports I have played in my lifetime: Soccer, Track, Football, Gymnastics, and Jujitsu. What can I say, I am constantly in motion!
