I have worked at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia since 2012. I have experience working on the general outpatient and acute care physical therapy teams. With this experience, I was able to obtain my board specialty certification in Pediatrics from the American Physical Therapy Association in 2016. I joined the Sports Medicine team in 2018 and look forward to using my expertise in wheelchairs and other durable medical equipment to assist the athlete participating in adaptive sports. My other areas of interest include injury prevention, promoting health and wellness through sports participation, and assisting athletes return to sport safely.
