Why I am a Physical/Occupational Therapist: Physical Therapy is an amazing career.  After 35 years, I still love what I do.  I am able to work with patients daily to recover from injury or illness and improve their quality of life.  I love building relationships with my patients and helping them progress to better strength, better posture, improved balance and return to the activities they enjoy.

Continuing Education Commitment: I have recently focused my continuing education on Women’s Health/Pelvic Floor dysfunction through the Herman and Wallace Institute.  I have also taken courses in Vestibular Rehabilitation to treat dizziness and balance issues.  I am presently increasing my manual therapy skills with the IMPACT Program.

Personal Interests: I have been a student of yoga for almost 20 years, which I believe has contributed to my Physical Therapy practice.  Living in the Northwest, I love anything that gets me outside-hiking, biking, skiing or tending to my garden.  And on a rainy day, I can often be found at a movie.

Educational Background: I received a degree in Biology from the University of California at San Diego, and my Physical Therapy degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
