Graduated from Penn State University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and from Arcadia University in 1997 with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy. I have worked across a variety of settings including outpatient orthopedic, skilled nursing care, long-term nursing care, and school-based. For the last 10 years, I have worked with the pediatric population in preschool and school-age programming. I have always enjoyed working with children, and am grateful to be able to use my skills as a physical therapist to help children improve their physical abilities in the educational setting. I have attended many continuing educational courses and continue to seek additional learning experiences to gain more ideas and techniques that will assist me in meeting the needs of my students.

My hobbies include running, hiking (especially with my children), skiing, and photography (especially of my children). I have 4 boys, ranging in age from 9 months to 14 years!
