I have had a passion for physical therapy ever since I was a senior in high school. Since that time, and multiple injuries later, I can truly say physical therapy has significantly changed my life. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my love for people and orthopedics to provide high quality care at Innova!

My treatment style combines manual therapy, movement training, and specific exercise based on each person's needs and goals. I have been trained in manual therapy through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT). In 2023, I completed the ConnectTherapy™ Series by Dr. Linda-Joy Lee. One of the things I love about incorporating manual therapy into my practice is the ability to make quick changes and follow it up with ways to train and educate my patients to continue making progress towards their goals. I believe in empowering my patients to know they play an important role during the course of treatment and beyond.

I have been a competitive horseback rider in the discipline of 3-day eventing for over 20 years; I continue to love my sport and competing. When not at the barn, you can usually find me with my husband and our dogs doing some kind of fun outdoor adventure. Other activities I enjoy include swimming, team triathlons, hiking, Sounders games with my husband, and cheering on the Gators.
