Clinic Manager

Physical Therapist and Dry Needling Specialist

“What I love about physical therapy is we have the ability to dramatically affect someone’s life. Injuries are often debilitating both physically and mentally and as a therapist I am challenged daily to help each person overcome their personal barriers. As a physical therapist, I know I have the opportunity to spend a large amount of time with a patient, and I have many resources and tools available to restore someone to their highest quality of life.”
