At a very young age, I found myself fascinated with the human body and inspired to help bring others back to health. I moved forward with that drive and earned my doctorate degree in physical therapy from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Physical therapy jobs relocated me from my hometown in Maryland to Florida, and ultimately Maui, where I found my "home". The beauty and aloha spirit captivated me, making this island the perfect location to offer my private physical therapy services to my Maui Ohana.
Over the years, I have increasingly expanded my skill set through experience and continuing education courses including: integrated manual therapy, kinesiotaping, Mckenzie treatment methods, spinal manipulation, and current concepts of orthopedic physical therapy, just to name a few. Living on this island has also inspired extraordinary changes, including the completion my yoga teacher training. I have found yoga asana to be one of the most powerful injury prevention and rehabilitation practices, and I'm thrilled to now offer private sessions to my clients.
When I'm not treating patients, you can find me instructing at Afterglow Yoga Studio or exploring the beautiful outdoors while scuba diving, stand up paddle boarding and hiking.
