I'm just a small town girl from Weirton, West Virginia. My love of sports led me to my career as a physical therapist. In high school, I played softball and volleyball. When I was little, I cheered and danced... which explains my Kam Jamz class.
As a physical therapist, I’m licensed in the state of PA and have practiced in multiple settings. As a fitness professional, I use my background as a PT to help people be healthy and strong.
I'm far from Wonder Woman, but I believe in being your own super hero. Here's little more about me, my own journey, and how I can better serve you!
After a sprained ankle playing softball, I felt a calling to help others rehab after injury and return to sport.
I attended Duquesne University and earned my Master of Physical therapy. For 8 years, I traveled to Pittsburgh hospitals and worked in the operating room to help Monitor surgical cases that put a patient's nervous system at risk.
