I earned my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, where I also worked as a graduate teaching assistant and tutor for cadaver-based human anatomy and musculoskeletal/orthopedic evaluation and treatment courses. I have clinical experience with neurological rehabilitation, pediatrics, and pelvic/women's health that allows me to provide relevant, real-life examples for students to apply their academic knowledge to the material on the NPTE. Learning happens when connections are made! I am passionate about teaching anatomy and physiology because it is the bedrock of not only the health sciences, but of the human experience. Knowledge about the biology of the human body will empower students for the rest of their careers and their lives. I love being a part of that journey as a teacher.
