What do you like most about being a PT? 

I enjoy helping patients progress faster and further with an individualized program based on their specific evaluation results. My goal is to return patients to the activities they love by listening and performing the most thorough clinical evaluation. My special clinical interests are in all orthopedic areas, especially neck, back, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle evaluation, mobilization, therapeutic exercises and education.

Something personal:

I enjoy playing all sports with my husband and four kids who have participated in soccer, basketball, baseball, cross country, field hockey, golf, softball, and track.  Jean played softball in high school and served as a Division III college student football trainer. I enjoy volunteering for Special Olympics, and serve as boys basketball coordinator, Girl Scout leader and has also enjoy coaching boys soccer and serving as PTO chair for school committees.
