Professional Interests

I enjoy working with the general orthopedic population, including non-surgical and post-surgical physical therapy. I specifically have a passion for working with athletes to design sport-specific rehabilitation and return-to-sport programs. Whether one is an athlete or not, it is rewarding for me to help every patient achieve their physical therapy goals.

I enjoy differential diagnosis and determining the underlying factors that contribute to a patient’s condition. I also enjoy education and teaching new movement patterns to allow patients to improve their condition through awareness of how movement influences recovery.

  • Graduated from the University of Illinois Medical Center Chicago with a degree in Physical Therapy in 1982.

It is my responsibility to provide athletes with a high standard of care through the prevention, recognition, management, and rehabilitation of sports related injuries.
