I have been practicing PT in the greater Seattle area since 2015 and have worked in a variety of settings including various outpatient orthopedic clinics and skilled nursing facilities. I enjoy working with individuals from all walks of life, both young and old, and it is my desire to help you achieve your personal goals by establishing a personalized plan of care to meet your needs. I believe in a multi- faceted approach that includes a combination of manual therapy techniques in conjunction with an individualized exercise program tailored to you. As a high-level martial artist, practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I especially enjoy working with mixed martial artists. I strongly believe that if you address injuries early on, regardless of the sport, you can prevent them from becoming chronic issues.

I am a lifelong learner and am passionate about learning new skills to provide top quality care for my patients. I have a background in Pilates, via the STOTT method; I hold a level 1 BikePT certification for bike fitting, which I obtained from the industry recognized expert Erik Moen; and I am a certified manual physical therapist through NAIOMT.

Outside the clinic my main passion is training BJJ and frequently you can find me on the mats getting ready for a local or national tournament. My other past times include snowboarding, hiking, rock climbing, riding my bike, running, playing in my garden and painting porcelain with my 94 year old grandma.

I specialize in treating patients from all walks of life, but have a unique insight and skill set to work with combat sport athletes (BJJ, mixed martial artists, etc.)
