Instructor
Department of Physical Therapy

I joined the Department of Physical Therapy as an adjunct faculty member in 2013 and became a full-time faculty member in 2016. My teaching responsibilities include the Therapeutic Interventions and Clinical Assessment and Diagnostic Skills courses within the first and second year of our curriculum. I have practiced as a physical therapist since 2011, working in both outpatient and sub-acute rehabilitation. I am a board-certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) and a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (FAAOMPT). Prior to joining the DPT Program’s core faculty, I worked full-time as a Clinical Specialist Physical Therapist at Kessler Rehabilitation Center and served as faculty within the Select Medical Orthopaedic Residency program.

Through my experiences in residency and fellowship training, I have developed research interests in the areas of orthopaedic physical therapy, active learning, and clinical reasoning. In studying to become a doctor of physical therapy, students progress through a rigorous program consisting of both didactic and clinical coursework. Utilizing evidence-based assessment, intervention, and learning strategies is vital to a student’s success in the development of the analytic and psychomotor skills required of a physical therapist.
