Current Role Working With The Athletic Population
I work with all types of people from weekend warriors to couch potatoes. A lot of my caseload is centered around neck/shoulder pain and back/hip pain interfering with strength sports. We have a brand new, 1200 sq foot gym inside of our new PT practice which allows us to do everything from agility/reactions to powerlifing to throwing sports.
I believe to get people to achieve things they never thought possible, you need to deliver care and education that they deserve as a whole person. You need to consider their personality, lifestyle, experiences, current status, along with all the orthopedic stuff. I have high expectations of people I work with and they should have high expectations of me.
As a young child (before high school), I was a 4 sport athlete. Once I reached high school, soccer and weightlifting were my main focus (quite the combo, huh?!?). After high school, I chose not to walk onto BU's soccer team and just focus on the PT program.
Academic Background and Professional Training
I completed a 6 year, double major program at Boston University, earning my Bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training and Doctoral degree in Physical Therapy. I worked with D1 collegiate athletes from BU men's ice hockey, BC football, and MIT varsity sports. Throughout college, I worked as a personal trainer and became a certified strength and conditioning specialist. After graduating, I continued my educational journey and completed a 2 year fellowship at the Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy in 2015.
