  1. What is your favorite part about working one-on-one with patients through the duration of care? I enjoy the one on one time with my patients and being able to positively impact patient’s lives. I enjoy the opportunity to collaboratively work toward patient goals be it walking further in order to get to the grocery store, returning to bike commuting without pain, or running a half-marathon. 
  2. Please share with us your most memorable patient and their story? I was treating this 94 year old woman who came in for neck pain and loss of motion. Her primary goal was to be able to reach to the top of the refrigerator so she could get her water bottles. Over the next 4-5 weeks I utilized manual therapy techniques and range of motion exercises, all the while, she would tell me interesting stories about her life.  By the end of her therapy she was pain free and able to reach her water bottles on top of the refrigerator.
  3. What do you like to do in your off time, outside of the clinic? I am currently coaching a U17 girls ice hockey team for the Ed Snider youth hockey program. We just started our season last week, I’m excited to have a good year!
