What are your clinical interests and specializations?
My main clinical interest is assisting others to return to their daily lifestyle; while doing this we are able to restore function and educate on injury prevention. I am interested in working with athletes and love the challenges and creativity they bring to the rehab table. Every patient brings a new perspective to my goal of being the best therapist I can be and I love every minute of my work.
What inspired you to become a physical therapist?
Working in the field of science was always in the forefront of my mind, and a desk job was never in the cards for me because I love to be up and about! While volunteering my time at a Hippotherapy clinic (therapy on horses), I found a mixture of my love of working with people and my complete immersion into the workings of the human body. I was hooked onto PT and the rest is history!
What do you appreciate most about working at Creative Rehab?
Creative Rehab offers the complete package for both staff and patients. There is a supportive and learning environment here that gives treatment a unique and personal feel. This facility offers learning for both patients and staff, leaving everyone with endless opportunities.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy hiking, working out, and spending time in the great outdoors. I also thoroughly enjoy going to the movies, concerts, and musical theater events whenever possible!
