I was born and raised in Burbank, CA, was always involved in sports and grew up with a passion for physical health. I graduated from Whittier College with my B.A. in Kinesiology and Nutrition Science while having competed in Division III Swimming. I then went on to receive my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. I strongly believe that becoming a physical therapist to help others is what I was meant to do in life. I welcome challenging cases and am open to a wide variety of evidence-based treatment techniques to help my patients improve their quality of life. I am a firm believer that the brain is a critical component of maintaining functional ability and that a positive attitude can do wonders for the body and your health. Outside of practicing physical therapy I love spending time with my family, my fiancé and my dog. I also enjoy swimming, Pilates, hiking and going to the beach. I look forward to working with all of my patients and I am grateful that I can work with you to help you achieve your goals.
