I received my bachelors degree in Clinical Health Studies and a minor in Exercise Science from Ithaca College in 2017. I continued on at Ithaca College to receive my doctorate degree of Physical Therapy in 2019. During my 4 clinical rotations at Ithaca College, I had the opportunity to learn from multiple clinicians with 20+ years of clinical experience in the outpatient physical therapy setting. In looking to expand my experience, knowledge and clinical skills I have applied for and been accepted into the New York Institute of Technology Professional Physical Therapy Residency Program. The residency will prepare me for the Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) exam to become a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. I look forward to the experience, knowledge and skill to be gained from this opportunity to better help my clients. Throughout my life I have been involved in athletics (baseball, golf, tennis, soccer, and basketball) both at a competitive and a recreational level. During my time at Ithaca College, I continued my athletic career playing Baseball and Rugby. My personal, educational, and professional experience give me a unique understanding into the rehabilitative process for competitive and recreational athletes a like. I believe the rehab process is unique to everyone and the treatment plan needs to reflect that. I make it my goal to listen to your concerns and beliefs going into the rehab process in order to better guide you through and help you manage your recovery.
