New Haven Clinic
PT, DPT, ATC, Sr. Therapist
I became interested in becoming a Physical Therapist when I had to be in PT myself for various injuries in high school.
The best part of this job is seeing patients meet goals.
Interesting fact about me, I am a Master Level track & field official. I have officiated several collegiate and US National Championships and Conference meets.
After a handful of sports injuries in high school, I started to develop an interest in physical therapy. Later, this became a passion.
The best part of my job is developing the relationship between clinician and patient. I love seeing the progress from day one to discharge.

My favorite part of this job is encouraging people, and seeing their lives change as they make progress towards their goals. There’s nothing better than seeing the joy it brings someone when s/he returns to walking or play. Or how happy a parent is when a child starts meeting his or her milestones or playing with peers.
Outside of work, I love working with kids and just had a little girl of my own in July 2021. I enjoy working out, running, lifting and pretty much all activities outdoors with my family.
