"I spent enough time working in corporate physical therapy settings to see that clients rarely receive focused, one-on-one manual therapy care. That's why I give my clients my undivided attention and spend time teaching them about their bodies and how best to cope with various conditions. My years of clinical experience and use of today's most advanced techniques can relieve pain and help people heal from injury or surgery more quickly. To me, that's what physical therapy is really all about."

"The best part of being a physical therapist is being able to help my patients achieve their goals in life, whether that be running a 5k, returning to playing a sport after injury, rolling over in bed without getting dizzy or simply being able to reach behind their back again to tuck their shirt in without pain or difficulty. I enjoy getting to know each of my patient's on a personal level that allows me to tailor a comprehensive rehab program utilizing evidence based techniques to meet each of their needs in a way that works for them. I am excited to be joining the UPPT team and beingt given the oppurtinutiy to continue to be able to help my patient's become the best versions of themselves".

"I am so blessed and grateful to begin my career as a Doctor of Physical Therapy at UPPT. I grew up in the Upper Perkiomen Valley and am so excited to give back to my hometown utilizing the knowledge and skills I have gained over the past 6 years. Throughout my time at LVC, I played collegiate level field hockey for 4 years and was a captain during my senior year (coincidentally, my first year of PT school). During graduate school, I completed my clinical rotations in a variety of major settings allowing me to help treat and learn from individuals with many diagnoses along the spectrum of care. With these experiences from didactic and clinical education, I can evaluate and treat individuals utilizing hands-on techniques to determine how to reduce pain, improve movement, and reach patient driven goals. I have always been passionate about living and promoting a healthy lifestyle, prioritizing physical activity, and promoting conservative care to reduce pain and maximize mobility. During my free time, I enjoy working out, hiking, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and doing anything outside. I look forward to being the best PT I can be and continue my future at UPPT!"
