I am a doctor of physical therapy and the lead physical therapist (PT) in the Hip Preservation Program. I have a special interest in treating soccer players and athletes with knee injuries. I am a member of our Knee Outcomes Team, which aims to advance care for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) injuries and to reduce and prevent these injuries altogether.
My interest in PT began when I was a younger athlete and had my own experience with physical therapy. I knew I wanted to work with athletes to help get them back to their game.
I enjoy partnering with my patients and their families to help them achieve their fullest potential. I strive to make therapy fun yet challenging.
When I’m not working, I enjoy Cincinnati sporting events and exploring our city with my husband, two daughters and our chocolate lab! While I enjoy all sports, soccer holds a special place in my heart.
