Biography:
With clinical experience as both a Physical Therapy Assistant, and as a Physical Therapist I am passionate about Physical Therapy. I have accumulated over 300 hours of continuing education during my career. I have always been interested in orthopedic physical therapy and began my career as a PT Assistant in 1995. I began working for a private practice in Sterling Heights where much of my case load was spinal in nature and was a driving force in my interest in this area. My career choices have led me to move to the Detroit Metro area with stops in Novi, Utica, Clawson, and finally here in Rochester. In 2005 I began with HealthQuest, and in 2007 became the Clinical Director of the Rochester Clinic.

Currently, I continue to have an interest in spinal physical therapy, treatment of headache patients and most recently, vestibular rehab. In April 2009 I attended the Susan Herdman Vestibular Rehab course which has further peaked my interest in Vestibular Rehab. At HealthQuest we have been developing a program specifically for Vestibular patients and my continuing education experiences in this area have strengthened my proficiency with treating this group of patients. I plan to further my continuing education in this area to help my patients with these types of problems.
