    What I Do

    My philosophy of care is to learn more about my patients to find their interests and values. This way I can better treat the whole person rather than just injuries. I believe that being empathetic in my care helps me tailor plans specific to each patient.

    My clinical interests include orthopedics, lymphedema and vestibular rehab.

    Why I Love My Work

    I love meeting patients from diverse family backgrounds, ethnicities and age groups, and hearing their stories. I also enjoy working with the amazing rehab team and CentraCare staff.

    I was motivated to choose healthcare because I wanted to help people every day and make a meaningful impact on their lives. I chose physical therapy because it allows me to spend more time with patients, getting to know them and focusing on what will improve their health and overall well-being.

    Getting to Know Me

    Outside of work, I love being active with baseball, volleyball and golf. I also enjoy nature by hiking, fishing and hunting. Family and friends are also very important to me, and I spend as much time as possible with them.
