About Me

 

I am a licensed Physical Therapist, IFBB Pro Fitness Competitor, personal trainer, choreographer, and acrobat with over 25 years in the health and fitness industry. I have been featured in many publications such as Muscle and Fitness, IronMan, Oxygen, Muscle and Fitness "Hers”, Natural Muscle, and Women's Bodybuilding and Fitness Magazine.  As a physical therapist, my particular interest and expertise is in lower extremity kinematics with emphasis on foot and ankle injuries, dysfunction, and optimization.  However, my real passion is achieving the overall health, agility, flexibility and strength goals desired by my varied clientele.  My applied knowledge of anatomy and physiology in addition to my 20+ years as a physical therapist enable me to maximize each individual’s goals and outcomes safely and efficiently.  More importantly, I am a total goofball and can probably keep you entertained while I kick you into shape!
