Biography

I have been a practicing physical therapist since 2009 receiving my Doctorate from Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia. I began practicing in orthopedics following graduation and have now specialized in pediatrics for the past 7 years. I completed a pediatric physical therapy residency program at Oregon Health & Science University in 2014, where I now continue to work as a faculty member. My research interests are in assistive technology, studying the effects of early mobility, and studying best practice techniques for children with a diagnosis of craniofacial disorders, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and hemophilia. I am the Diversity Coordinator for the OHSU UCEDD, co-director of Go Baby Go Oregon, and the co-chair of the IDD Diversity Task Force. I also have a strong interest in global health and work yearly in Merida, Mexico to provide physical therapy services to the local community.
