About Me

I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2009 with a Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy. In 2012, I earned my Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from EIM Institute of Health Professions, and this is when evidence/research began to have a huge impact on my practice. I am now a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS), and have additional certifications in Y-Balance and Functional Movement Screening (FMS). My professional expertise includes utilizing a variety of manual therapy techniques and treating patients with orthopaedic, post-surgical, and sports related injuries. I have a special interest in ankle/foot disorders, as well as, knee and shoulder pathology.
I have joined the Physiopedia team because I want to contribute to an organization that promotes life-long learning, as well as constantly moving our profession in the right direction. I'm passionate about research, promoting it, and hopefully someday (soon), being directly involved in it.
