My ultimate goal in Physical Therapy was to start my own practice in my home town of Lake Orion, Michigan. In April of 2001 that dream became a reality with the opening of Lake Orion HealthQuest. At our facility we specialize in Orthopedic and Sports related injuries. We have an outstanding team of therapists all focused on improving the physical and mental well-being of each patient that walks though our doors.

I also have a strong passion for student education, and was the recipient in 2008 of Michigan's Outstanding Clinical instructor award.
