I can't wait to learn more about you and what you want to achieve! Here's a little story if you want to get to know me a little bit and why I do what I do:

I have a long history with physical therapy, and not only as a physical therapist! When I was in high school I had my share of injuries as a cheerleader. I've had shoulder and knee surgery that set me back. As a result, I was no longer able to pursue a cheering career because of these injuries and not recovering as I should have. This was one of many reasons I wanted to become a physical therapist.


I do not want other athletes to miss out on finishing their sport careers on their terms and not on the terms of their injuries stopping them from playing. I'm passionate about getting you back on the field/court because if my physical therapists knew how to push me then my cheering career wouldn't have ended like it did. When you want to stop playing it needs to be on your call and not when an injury has held you back from your full potential.
