Throughout my life, I have had an interest in sports, and through my education, I developed an interest in kinesiology. I decided to become a Physical Therapist to learn more about the connection between kinesiology, sports, and rehabilitation. I enjoy the ability to help others recover from injury and return to their pain-free active lifestyles.

I received my degree from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI, where I met  my husband and lived for 6 more years before moving back to my home state of Michigan. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband, daughter, and Goldendoodle. My husband and I both share a passion for playing golf and cheering on our favorite sports teams.

I enjoy being a part of the team at HealthQuest and having the ability to use my interests and education to provide the best care for our patients.
