Physical Therapist Assistant
Certified Athletic Trainer
Owner / Co-Founder – New West Rehabilitation

Treatment Philosophy:

“I utilize a treatment approach that involves constant communication with my patients and their physician. This communication serves as the backbone of the rehabilitation process. My background in athletic training has helped me understand how important it is to get athletes, and the working population alike, back to activity in the shortest amount of time possible. It is my goal to work with the patient and their physician to be as aggressive as possible, but at the same time, to do it in a safe and productive manner.”
