WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I enjoy working with individuals who are recovering from a vast variety of upper extremity conditions who are enthusiastic to restore participation in the activities in life that are the most important and meaningful. What is most rewarding to me is being a part of and seeing a progression in an individual's functional capacity as a reduction of adverse symptoms occurs in each person's recovery. When I'm not working I enjoy having fun while spending time at the beach with my family, gardening, exercising, reading, listening to music, cooking and occasionally playing golf.
