"I especially enjoy helping people get back to what they love to do."
Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science at Taylor University in Upland, IN.

What are your clinical interests and specializations?
I enjoy working with all patients and I especially enjoy helping people get back to what they love to do. Whatever a person’s interests, hobbies, sports, or professional activities, my clinical interest is in making our sessions into a bridge to get you back to what you love.
What inspired you to become a physical therapist?
I was injured and needed help with the rehab process. After experiencing moderate whiplash in a car accident in junior high, I had difficulty concentrating in class, mood changes, and lots of excess physical and mental stress that became normal to me. My therapist at the time helped me to physically relax, heal, and after a few sessions I was nearly back to normal. Since then, I’ve wanted to duplicate that experience for other people.
What do you appreciate most about working at Creative Rehab?
I love the community. The therapists and staff are always looking out for one another and our patients. It’s supportive, collaborative, and uplifting. And the space is calming, open, and inviting.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I love spending time with my family and friends: playing games, watching movies, and eating meals. My other hobbies include playing disc golf, lifting weights, hiking, and playing guitar.
