I have worked at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia since 2008 and joined the Sports Medicine team at the Main Campus location in December 2010.
In the clinical setting, I have worked with adults, children and adolescents undergoing outpatient orthopaedic physical therapy, pediatric in-patient and acute rehab and adult acute rehab (orthopaedic, cardiology, oncology and general medical-surgery). During my time at CHOP, I have worked in the amplified pain program, healthy weight program, RND clinic and bone clinic. I have also volunteered in the Global Health program, Reach and Special Olympics.
In addition to my clinical work, I have lectured at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia and at Arcadia University.
Recently I completed an Orthopaedic Residency at Temple University and presented a poster at the Pennsylvania Chapter, south eastern district combined sections meeting.
My special interests are in manual therapy and injury prevention/reduction of overuse injuries in the pediatric athlete in low income areas.

The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
