Biography:
I became interested in the field of Physical Therapy because of the focus on preventative care and I believe that it is a strong asset in changing the traditional field of allopathic medicine. Also, the fascination of how the body moves and works with various activity and the unique abilities and the seemingly limitless potential that we have with our bodies. This interest was fueled by my own fitness journey with bodybuilding and weightlifting and my personal training background. Where independently and in the commercial gym setting I have trained everyone ranging from 13-92 years old with various goals and desires. From weight loss clients, collegiate and semi-pro athletes, to the average person that just wants improvement with strength and performance.

My mother was and is still practicing as an occupational therapist and as a certified hand therapist and with her knowledge base I have tried to incorporate that with my personal training clients and patients. Incorporating principles of injury prevention, proper movement patterns, and ways to build intrinsic motivation that lead to a healthy lifestyle has always been my prime focus with everyone I work with. What lead me to pursue a career at HealthQuest was working with George at the Clarkston location for my final clinical rotation and seeing the incorporation of quality physical therapy while including fitness principles.

In my spare time I enjoy working out, playing guitar, reading, hunting, and spending time with friends and family. I also love spending time at the family cabin up north when I get the chance. I am passionate about being a strong patient advocate and continue to expand my knowledge base to be the best therapist I can be. I am excited and grateful to be with the HealthQuest team to provide quality therapy!
