Assistant Chair and Assistant Professor
Department of Physical Therapy

I joined the Department of Physical Therapy in 2005 as the Director of Clinical Education and moved in to the position as the Assistant Chair in 2015.

Originally from Denmark, I studied Physical Therapy in Copenhagen and worked several years in Copenhagen in various practice settings.

Once in the United States, I continued my post-professional studies earning a Master of Science in Health Sciences, a Doctor of Physical Therapy and finally a Doctor of Philosophy in the Movement Sciences, all at Seton Hall University. This a testament to my commitment to lifelong learning and belief in the School of Health and Medical Sciences at Seton Hall University.

I have a global perspective on healthcare. I initiated an international PT student exchange program with my alma mater in Copenhagen, have collaborated with universities in the Philippines, and have been involved with several internationalization efforts on campus throughout my tenure.

In my role as the Assistant Chair, I work closely with all faculty to ensure the students’ educational potential is maximized.

My research activities are primarily in the movement sciences, focusing on issues related to postural control and balance using EMG, force plates and 3-D kinematic data.
