Education and Special Credentials:

Doctorate of Physical Therapy in May 2013 from Nazareth College, Bachelor of Science in Health Science May 2011 from Nazareth College, and A.A.S. Physical Therapy Assistant May 1994.

What made you want to become a PT?

Growing up, I slowly became aware of the negative effects an unhealthy lifestyle can create on the human body. I grew to appreciate the science of the human body and the positive effects of exercise. This led to a healthier lifestyle change for me and interest in the field of physical therapy. I began volunteering at several physical therapy clinics which soon lead me to obtain my first degree as a Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA). In my experience as a PTA, I grew hungry for more knowledge in the field and decided in 2006 to pursue my doctorate of physical therapy degree.

Experience:

I spent most of my PTA experience in outpatient sports orthopedic physical therapy clinics, approximately 19 years. I developed strong manual skills, worked with several area high school programs for high school volunteers interested in physical therapy as a career. After graduation, I worked per diem in outpatient orthopedics. In addition, I served 8 years with the Army infantry 1999 to 2008.

Hobbies and Interests:

Staying fit and enjoying the outdoors. I have fun snowboarding, skiing, hiking, biking, traveling, and social atmospheres that include friends and family. I also enjoy completing a variety of building projects. I believe in being an active member in my community, I am grateful to have served in the United States Infantry and I support fellow veterans past and present and their families.

What I love about working at Churchville PT

My clients have said it best, Churchville PT is like being part of a family and I agree. I am surrounded by great co-workers in a friendly, professional atmosphere.
