PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
My philosophy of care has evolved over 26 years of practice.  In recognizing and respecting the body as a whole treatment empowering individuals with the tools to achieve optimal health and wellness.   

1. What are you most passionate about professionally?
I am most passionate about the opportunity that I have been given to help people through their injuries in my own clinic.   Being a physical therapist requires patience, compassion, and empathy.  Knowing that I participated in empowering an individual to achieve their goals and get back to living their lives with my knowledge, education, and skill is very rewarding. 

2. Where can we find you when you’re not working?  What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday?
I am a true introvert, believe it or not, so after a busy week of work I prefer to be at home.  In the summer time you would find me in my garden, golfing, or camping with my family.  In the fall, you would find me watching college football on Saturday.  In the winter time you would find me skiing or making a big pot of soup.  I’m a regular at the gym and on Sundays, you would find me at church. 

3. What would be impossible for you to give up?
It would be impossible for me to give up my faith.  It is the core root of who I am.  On a lighter note, it would be very difficult for me to give up my cell phone.  It has become my life line of communication to family and friends.
