Over the course of my career, I have gravitated towards small hospitals and communities. where therapists have to know a little bit of everything to provide for the patient population. I've worked in a number of different settings, from hospitals to home health and from Alaska to Manhattan. Initially I didn't have a passion for any particular topic, but would focus my studies on whatever the patient in front of me needed.Then I took my first John Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR) course in 2011 and everything clicked. Finally the patients I just couldn't figure out made sense. I had finally found my passion. Over the last 6 years I've taken over 13 MFR courses and reached the level of Expert Therapist (though I always think there's so much more to learn). I have loved taking my practice of therapy from centering around repetitive exercises to finding the source of the patient's pain and helping the patient to find true healing. Through Myofascial work, I found my next passion: Women's Health. Seeing the difference myofascial work and physical therapy make in the lives and confidence of women with pelvic floor dysfunction, has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my career. After 12 years of working for hospitals and having growing frustrations with the health care system, I am striking out on my own to build a practice based on healing, improving quality of life, decreasing pain, and helping people enjoy more active, fulfilling lives.
