My Journey in Physical Therapy

As a former soccer player and dancer, I understand sports injuries first-hand, including an ACL tear of my own. The physical therapists who helped in my recovery left a lasting positive impact on me that continues to shape the way I care for my patients today. My goal in my work is to help people decrease pain and increase function so they can return to a pain-free active lifestyle.

I aim to make the rehabilitation process as enjoyable as possible so my patients can reach their full, healthy potential and achieve their goals. Through evidence-based practice and individualized treatments, I tailor physical therapy to each patient to help them along their journey to recovery. On a regular basis, I treat people with a variety of orthopedic, sports-related, and women’s health injuries. I have advanced training in women’s health and vestibular conditions, including vertigo and pelvic floor dysfunction.  

Outside of the clinic, I teach group fitness classes that combine high-intensity training, strength, and yoga. In my free time, I also enjoy leading a healthy lifestyle through cycling, pilates, and my own yoga practice.

At Flo, I appreciate the opportunity to give my feedback on sports-related content to encourage lifelong wellness, health, and balance among our millions of users.
