"When I was twelve, I was in a car accident that left me with chronic neck pain. After seeing a number of doctors and being unable to participate in competitive swimming and gymnastics, I was finally referred to a physical therapist. I will never forget how she helped me heal, alleviate my pain and enable me to return to my favorite activities and hobbies. I knew then, that physical therapy was what I wanted to do in life. That experience taught me to value the ability to assist others through the rehab process, allowing me to embrace the mental, emotional, and physical issues that are involved.
I've been a licensed physical therapist since 2003, and have found manual therapy to be the most effective tool in patient treatment. I have been fortunate enough to have trained and worked with some of the top manual therapists in the country. In 2011 I opened Telos Physical Therapy to offer a different type of physical therapy experience. It was my goal to create a welcoming environment, where patients have one-on-one private sessions with their manual therapist for the entire length of their therapy session. I continually strive to develop my manual therapy skills as well as my understanding of pain and injury through continued education. There is still so much about pain and injury that we don't fully understand, which captivates and challenges me to constantly pursue innovative research for solutions.
My mission is to educate, guide and empower my patients back to health, work, and play. The most satisfying reward is always when a patient no longer needs me; that is when I have succeeded at my job.
