- I treat endurance athletes (runners and triathletes) that have lower and upper extremity imbalances through the use of SFMA, FMS and with running gait analyses.
- I also treat male and female patients with weakness in the pelvic floor through external techniques, relaxation and deep breathing techniques.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences and Psychology at Fordham University and soon after, earned a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from New York Institute of Technology. I have been working with Professional Physical Therapy since 2017 starting at the Brooklyn Heights location, working closely with physicians from Mount Sinai, NYU, Columbia, NYP and HSS (Hospital for Special Surgery) and local running teams. I am currently working in Red Bank and Freehold, and determined to develop connections with local physicians and local running programs.
I completed courses from Herman and Wallace Pelvic Floor and Phoenix Core Solutions to broaden my treatment capability, as women’s health is not discussed enough. Furthermore, I use Neurokinetic therapy to help muscles that are underactive and overactive to ensure the brain reprograms the correct way to achieve patient goals.
I enjoy working with professional and competitive athletes, as well as the elderly and youth. I focus on injury rehabilitation and wellness to allow my patients return to exercise, sport, and life. As a former NCAA Division I cross country and track athlete, I continue to remain competitive and train regularly. I am a 70.3 Ironman World’s Qualifier, eight time USAT Olympic Distance Nationals qualifier, completed the Dopey Challenge in Disney World, competed in NYC marathons, and soon will be running the Boston Marathon.
Lastly, I continue to expand my knowledge through continuing education to enhance my manual and orthopedic skills and I continue to contribute to the education of future physical therapists as a clinical instructor for PT students.
