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

I enjoy the opportunity to serve those who have suffered an injury or setback and help them return to their potential and more enjoyable life.

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

I would like patient to feel they were treated as a person with an injury or limitation not a body part / injury with a name.

Q: What do you enjoy in your free time?

I enjoy spending time attending sporting events (in addition to the ones involved in my work). I enjoy being able to make time to travel and look forward to the possibility of more in the future.
