I have always been a very active individual who played a variety of sports and played on multiple teams during each season. As a result, I have had my share of minor and major injuries which required some sore of physical therapy intervention. I attended physical therapy on several occasions for various injuries and enjoyed the atmosphere and the possibility to work with active individuals attempting to get back into their sport or daily routine. I have always been interested in human anatomy and science classes and enjoyed learning about how the body works, functions, heals itself and how it responds to internal and external forces. As my schooling continued, I became more interested in treating a wide variety of clients including but not limited to athletes. I am happy to help and assist everyone that walks in the door accomplish their individual goals.
