“As a clinician, I believe a positive attitude and an individualized treatment plan can help any patient overcome their obstacles and reach their goals. Through my personal experiences as an athlete, I have seen and experienced limitations and injuries. These experiences have helped me develop effective treatment techniques to help patients not only heal but also build confidence throughout their treatment process. The satisfaction one gets from exceeding their own personal limitations is a feeling she wants to share with others.”
