About me

“I started off in college in Medical Technology at Michigan State University, where I learned that looking in a microscope wasn’t for me. I realized my passion for working with people and getting them back to health could be achieved by being a Physical Therapist. I transferred to Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan where I got my Masters Degree in Physical Therapy. After graduation I worked in the outpatient center of the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan. From there I moved to South Florida where I continued to work in outpatient orthopedics. Moving back to the Midwest in Illinois brought me to the Doctors of Physical Therapy, where I continued to work in outpatient orthopedics but I also began to treat more injured workers and developed a passion for rehabbing the injured worker so they can return to work, which is such a integral part of our psychological well-being. This led me to learn how to perform Functional Capacity Evaluations as well. Since I have been doing this type of work for several years, I now am able to integrate education of my knowledge to other therapists as well.

“I grew up spending some time in both Michigan and California, going to college in Michigan. I married my high school sweetheart and we spent several years starting our careers and family in South Florida. We were blessed with two boys who are now teenagers. I have always had a passion for health and have been running marathons for the past 10 years and continue to do so. In my free time, if I am not running or at the ballpark watching my boys play baseball, you can find me enjoying outdoor activities such kayaking, hiking or even fishing!”
