I believe exercise is medicine and will work with individuals to create treatment plans to improve physical function, whether it be recovery from an acute injury or functioning better despite a chronic condition.
I thrive when I am outside. You are likely to find me at a park with my family, on a trail hiking, biking, skiing, or camping. I am passionate about family, sports, fitness and good food.

- Clinical interest for patients
My clinical interests include diagnosis and non-operative management of spinal disorders, musculoskeletal injuries and peripheral nerve injuries. When necessary, I may perform electrodiagnostic testing (nerve studies), spinal or other injections to help figure out the source of the problem and to reduce pain, and will provide guidance on therapeutic exercise and rehabilitation. I treat both athletes and non-athletes and individualize treatments with a goal of reducing pain and improving physical function.
