Billy Jean King said, “Pressure is a Privilege”. Well, I believe “Physical Therapy is a Privilege”…it is a privilege that everyday people invite us into their lives on such a personal level to help lead and guide them through what can be a tough journey. I enjoy offering the most advanced techniques and combining my manual therapy and sports specialties to achieve my patients goals.”
