I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy with over two decades of wide-ranging experience in the practice of Physical Therapy. Among others, I have worked in inpatient, outpatient, home health, and academic settings. I have specialized experience with neurological diagnoses as well as a PWR!Moves certified therapist for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). In fact, I am looking forward to working with the CP team as we explore our therapy’s possible benefits for patients with PD.
After earning my Bachelor’s degree, I earned my Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2002 from Washington University, a prestigious medical and research school in St. Louis, MO. I pursued higher education for several years, then (while working full-time) I completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree through Washington University, St. Louis in 2009. I am currently certified in the Wurn Technique & Clear Passage® Approach and have taken many continuing education courses including visceral manipulation through the Barral Institute, Myofascial Release with John Barnes, and Craniosacral Therapy.
I have treated a range of conditions using manual therapy techniques including geriatric cases, chronic pain, neurological diagnoses, post-surgical conditions, sports injuries, and women’s health. Integrating manual therapy into my practice has allowed me to help my patients improve their function and mobility in a profound way. My goal is to empower each of my clients to achieve their optimal outcome.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my large family and daughter in the Dallas – Ft. Worth area. When feeling energetic, I love snowboarding, rock climbing, and hiking which I began while living in Colorado for an extended period.
