Bachelor's of Health Science 2000 and Master's of Physical Therapy 2001 from the University of Florida
Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS)
My primary practice setting has been outpatient orthopedics where emphasis is upon manual intervention. Hands-on skills have been priority not only in practice, but also with choices in continuing education that involve joint mobilization (including thrust), myofascial release, and integrated movement. Due to my love of orthopedics and the ability to figure out complex, chronic pain, I worked to become board certified in orthopedics in 2011.
Certified KT Practitioner & Osteoporosis Physical Therapy
I had the pleasure of working alongside Dr. Robin Creamer for specialized education, prevention, and exercise prescription for osteoporosis/osteopenia diagnoses [2014-2015]. Certified and adept at kinesotaping since 2012.
Why I am different...
I love to problem-solve and delve into the "why" of pain/functional issues to truly resolve the chronic, complex pain you are suffering from. I offer detailed habit changes for lifestyle, home exercise program, relief tactics specific to your needs, and ways to stay in control of your diagnosis so that you know how to intervene if a flare-up occurs. I want you to be independent and not have to rely upon me! #empoweringyou
