Why I do this: I enjoy working with all types of people- especially those who are motivated to get their health back on track. I feel fortunate to work with such a great team of therapists who have the same practice philosophy. That’s the sort of thing that motivates me every day.

What Makes Me Tick: I am fascinated by biomechanics – the way in which bones, muscles and soft tissues work together.
Little Known Fact: Hailing from LA, I was once a competitive speed skater.
