What I’m most excited to bring to Riser Physical Medicine Patients:

I have extensive experience in Physical Therapy not only as a clinician but as a patient for many years.  I have a successful history overcoming several personal injuries and surgeries.  From my experiences, I have a thorough understanding of the rehabilitative process and personally incorporate Physical Therapy into my own daily life.


I truly enjoy explaining to patients what is causing their injury, why it's happening, and how to fix it in order to achieve positive long term outcomes.
