Background

I joined the Sports Medicine team at CHOP in 2013 and currently work at the Center for Sports Medicine & Performance in King of Prussia. My physical therapy experience includes the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions, functional training for return to sport, and performance training for injury prevention. Prior to joining the team at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, I gained valuable experience in the treatment of the pediatric and adolescent athlete in the outpatient setting in Florida. My special interests include running medicine as well as strategies for injury prevention in the young athlete.
