I am a Samuel Merritt Graduate, starting career at Kaiser Vallejo PNF residency. Soon after I commissioned in the Air Force as a physical therapist. After time in service moved to the VA working in Monterey in outpatient orthopedics. Major current roles include integrating trigger point dry needling in VA system locally and nationally as well as creating model of direct access clinics to manage and address acute severe pain and dysfunction.
My biggest passions are my family and spending time outside hiking, playing sports, or just enjoying the beach.
