About Me

My interest in physical therapy began in high school athletics while watching teammates rehabilitate and return to sport. Through my time as a graduate student at Samuel Merritt University, my interest in physical therapy shifted toward acutely ill patients.  I am specifically interested in interprofessional relationships and the role of the interprofessional team in the acute care settings.
