About Me

I work in acute rehabilitation at the Summit campus of Alta Bates in Oakland where I am on the brain injury team.  I specialize in working with people with traumatic and non-traumatic brain injuries as well as the oncologic population. I also have the opportunity 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.

In my free time I enjoy staying active outside and baking.


I graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in 2006 with a BS in Kinesiology and a minor in Nutrition. I attended Samuel Merritt University for my doctorate in Physical Therapy and graduated in 2010.
