Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to work in the health care profession due to my innate desire to help others. It wasn’t until my first bout of physical therapy, after I injured my back in gymnastics, that I found my direction. Physical therapy was a perfect career path because it seamlessly brought together my passions and paralleled my beliefs of holistic health care.
I was incredibly fortunate to be accepted into Oakland University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program where I was blessed with amazing professors, mentors and clinical instructors. With an education and internships focused on manual therapy, I was able to develop this foundation skill that can be adapted to individualize care for each patient.
Outside of Physical Therapy, I coach competitive gymnastics. Through the 10 years of coaching, I have gained knowledge in common injuries associated with gymnastics, dance and cheer. I am incredibly passionate about decreasing injury rates in sports through education and prevention.
I am excited to have the opportunity to work at HealthQuest where I will strive every day to deliver the best care possible.
