I am a PT from Grand Rapids, MI specializing in treatment of chronic pain, orthopedic and neurologic dysfunction. I utilize an eclectic approach involving Osteopathic Manual Manipulation, dry needling, education, yoga and neurolomuscular re-education based in the Feldenkrais method while utilizing neuroplasticity to make a lasting change.
I was born in Wisconsin but grew up outside of Ann Arbor, MI. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science with a minor in Engineering at Grand Valley State University prior to getting my Doctorate in Physical therapy at University of Michigan-Flint.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with loved ones, fishing, hiking, kayaking, snowboarding, disc golfing and am looking forward begin surfing these Great Lakes and learning to climb the frozen waterfalls of the Upper Peninsula.
