Biography:
Sports and fitness have always been part of my life. Being enrolled in club soccer at a young age led me to play in high school and eventually in college. Throughout my junior and senior years at Rochester College I sustained many ankle injuries, which unfortunately were never properly treated and rehabilitated. Looking back, I was very fortunate to select pre-physical therapy as my focus in undergrad and even more fortunate to end up at Oakland University where I received a world-class education in physical therapy. It was during one of my internships that I was introduced to HealthQuest and I was very blessed to be given an opportunity to now be a part of that family. I know what its like to live and play through injuries. My goal is to take what I have learned through sports and school and to provide my patients with intelligent and compassionate care in order to help them rehab properly.
