My Areas of Practice
I have worked for Park Nicollet for my entire career, since 2005.  My practice interests include aquatic therapy, vestibular, sports medicine, and spine.  I enjoy working with a wide variety of diagnoses both in the clinic and the pool.  I love having the versatility of working in both mediums to provide comprehensive care for my patients.  I believe in the role education plays in patients’ understanding their injury or condition and why the treatments and exercises in PT will yield maximal function.  Neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, hip pain, sacroiliac (SI) pain, and ankle/foot pain are just some of the many conditions that I treat!  I keep up-to-date with research articles in PT practice, so that I can provide the best care for my patients.  In 2014, I passed the Vestibular Competency Exam from Emory University.
