I am an experienced physical therapist with 20 years experience, haven worked in inpatient, hospital, industrial rehabilitation, outpatient and private practice settings. I treated a multitude of different movement dysfunctions, including spinal injuries, traumatic, peripheral and sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, and post surgical conditions. I have also 20 years experience as a personal trainer, 15 years of teaching experience and am a newly trained certified professional coach(CPC).
My educational journey began with a career in marketing where I thought I was going to own my own Advertising Agency. I graduated in 1992 with a BS in Marketing. After a low back injury, and several months of physical therapy, I became enthralled with physical therapy and decided to make a career change. Studying hard, taking all the necessary science courses, I was accepted into Nova South Eastern University Master of Physical Therapy Program. I did a 4 month clinical rotation through inpatient, outpatient, pediatrics and neurlogic settings and graduated in 1999 with my MPT. Then in 2011, I decided to pursue an advanced master's from the University of South Australia, where I studied with experts Mark Jones, PT, David Butler, PT, Lorimer Moseley, PT and others and graduated in 2012.
