Biography:
After working as a rehab technician at a combined PT/OT outpatient clinic, I realized physical therapy was the right career path for me. I enjoyed the anatomical mindset of physical therapists and how they strive to rehabilitate patients back to their prior level of function and performance. I attended Oakland University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, which had a great influence on my treatment approach that involves a combination of manual therapy interventions as well as therapeutic exercises tailored individually to patients’ needs.

I grew up in Lake Orion, Michigan with my extremely supportive family. I am an avid Michigan State basketball fan and enjoy staying active through participation in team sports, hiking, and cycling. During PT school, I had a clinical internship at HealthQuest and appreciated the team-oriented approach and positive work atmosphere. I am excited to be a part of the HealthQuest team and to be able to help patients achieve their physical therapy goals.
