I work in acute rehabilitation at the Summit campus of Alta Bates in Oakland, which makes my ability to teach at Samuel Merritt very convenient. I have worked at this facility for the past 8 years where I am on the brain injury team. I specialize in working with people with traumatic and non-traumatic brain injuries, but also treat individuals with a variety of other neurological and orthopedic injuries/disorders. I have been adjunct faculty at Samuel Merritt since 2013.
I am active within the Golden Gate district, currently serving as the treasurer/secretary as well as an assembly representative.
I graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in 2006 with a BS in Kinesiology and a minor in Nutrition. Attended Samuel Merritt University for my doctorate in Physical Therapy and graduated in 2010
