As a Doctor of Physical Therapy at Movement Systems Physical Therapy, I spend my day assessing and diagnosing movement dysfunction and educating my clients.  I am also a former NCAA All-American collegiate middle distance runner and NCAA coach with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics.  Through personal experience as an athlete, mentor/coach, and physical therapist I have witnessed the transformative change in lifestyle and health that occurs with the simple act of running and setting goals.  I developed the Transformative Running Project as a 1-on-1 mentorship program combining my expertise in rehabilitation and training distance runners to mentor individuals to experience consistent, injury-free running to boost clients towards their goals and facilitate the dramatic effect that movement has on wellness.  I believe whole-heartedly in the concept of the unique individual experience when it comes to guiding people toward personal bests, personal success, and wellness.
