WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My interest in sports physical therapy began when I was a young athlete having to recover from several soccer-related injuries. The draw of sports physical therapy to me is that patients have a unique path that leads him or her back to activity or sport, and that I get to help guide him or her to their goal. It is incredibly fulfilling to me to see each patient return to what he or she loves. I have a specific interest and expertise in soccer medicine. The time I have spent with my playing career, at soccer-specific continuing education courses across the world, and earning my FIFA Diploma in Football (soccer) Medicine all provide me with a unique expertise in working with these patients. I look forward to utilizing this expertise as part of Duke Health’s accredited FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence, one of only three in the country.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am beginning to develop and expand on my research interests here at Duke Health. My interests include injury prevention, safe and optimal return to sport, and rehabilitation protocols. I also have specific interest in how each of these areas applies to soccer medicine. My research will hopefully decrease the number of injuries sustained in sport, improve patient outcomes once injury is sustained, and ensure safer and optimal outcomes when returning to sport.
