I joined the Sports Medicine team in 2013 and work at the Center for Sports Medicine & Performance in King of Prussia.

Prior to coming to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, I worked in sports medicine physical therapy clinics at the University of Southern California.

Outside of my clinical work, I am an adjunct professor at both University of Southern California and Thomas Jefferson University. I have also had the pleasure of performing guest lectures at Arcadia University. My current research involves the management of recurrent hamstring strains and the importance of trunk stabilization and motor control in management. My areas of interests include management manual therapy of hip and knee injury, as well as the use of dynamic stabilization for spinal issues.
