From a young age, I always knew that I wanted to work in the healthcare field but never knew specifically the area I wanted to specialize in. Growing up playing sports and being very active led me to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at Michigan State University. An assignment during my freshman year allowed me to shadow a physical therapist, and I knew from that moment that physical therapy was the perfect field for me.
Shortly after graduating from Michigan State and being accepted into the Doctorate program at Oakland University, I began working at HealthQuest Physical Therapy as a physical therapist technician. I am happy to continue my journey with the HealthQuest family as a physical therapist and provide patients with the best quality care possible.
Since beginning my career as a physical therapist, I have had the experience of treating a wide variety of patients. While working at an orthopedic spine clinic, I gained to increase knowledge of cervical and lumbar issues that occur both pre- and post-operatively. I have had experience in working with patients with complex neurological issues such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and Parkinson’s Disease. With my knowledge of athletic injuries, combine with my experience/certification in Selective Functional Movement Assessment, I am able to use evidence-based clinical models to address sports-related injuries and movement dysfunction. I have been able to combine all of these experiences to become a knowledgeable and compassionate asset to the HealthQuest team.
