The art of physical therapy fascinates me. I love the pursuit to empower patients to regain control over their movement and comfort. I am excited about doing the Orthopedic residency program with Hand & Ortho because I strive to be an evidence-based therapist with skilled manual therapy techniques.
I received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy and a B.A. in Mass Communications from the University of Utah. I had the good fortune to take a 200-hour teacher training in vinyasa yoga from Yoga Tree in San Francisco in 2010 and went on to study Anusara Yoga principles of alignment. I also became a Pilates practitioner through Polestar Pilates and use the principles of both yoga and Pilates in my therapy interventions with patients when facilitating mobility, stability and enhanced mind-body connection with breathing.
In my free time I like to find peace and recharge by swimming in mountain lakes, making friends with animals, or escaping into the world of cinema and podcasts.
