Personal Statement

My career is dedicated to supporting my patients physically, mentally, and emotionally as they progress through various stages of life - from their newborn days to adulthood. I have a particular interest in treating childhood obesity through the development of healthy family habits and fostering loving mind/body relationships.

I also enjoy treating patients of all ages and activity levels with musculoskeletal pain or sports-related injuries. My goal is to work together with my patients to help them return to the activities they love as soon as possible.
