Biography:
I always knew I wanted to have a career in the medical field.  After starting a job as a rehab technician for Dwight Orthopedics shortly after high school, I decided physical therapy was the career for me.  I continued to work as a rehab technician for the next 6 years as I completed my schooling at Oakland University.  Immediately after graduating from PT school in 2004, I continued working for Dwight Orthopedics at a newly opened clinic as a staff therapist.  Over the years, I moved into a Clinical Director role and enjoyed working in a small, rural community with a varied patient population.

I have been married to my husband, Pete since 2006 and together we have 4 fun-loving children.  We are always busy with sports and love to take family vacations.

I pursued a career with HealthQuest to begin an exciting new chapter.  I feel that my experience as a Clinical Director in an outpatient orthopedic clinic for the last 13+ years will equip me in making the new clinic in Richmond a success.
