Q: What makes you excited to jump out of bed and head to work each day?

I enjoy the variability of each day of work and setting an individualized plan of care for each patient and their limitations. I also enjoy the personal connection with patients and helping them meet their goals and guiding them along their journey to recovery.

Q: What is one thing you’d like every patient to walk away with from their experience at ProActive Physical Therapy?

I hope that each patient that we treat knows that we care about their needs and have designed their treatment to meet those specific needs and goals.

Q: What do you enjoy in your free time?

Outside of work, I enjoy sports with my kids especially basketball and likes to read Tom Clancy books.
