Practice Focus, Interests

I have over 23 years of experience as a practicing Physical Therapist with a board certified specialization in Orthopedics. My focus is to consult with other advocates in understanding the many complexities of Orthopedics including providing education about the disease or injury, available treatment options and the rehabilitation process.

Professional History

I have been practicing as a Physical Therapist since 1990. I am a board certified orthopedic specialist with over 23 years of clinical experience. I was trained at a large University Hospital where I mentored staff members and also served as the physical therapist to the UCLA Intercollegiate athletes prior to opening my own private practice over 15 years ago.
