Philosophy of Care 

Growing up I was a competitive soccer player and even now continue to play recreationally and remain active by running and cross-training. My previous sports involvement laid the foundation for my interest in Sports Medicine. As an athlete I understand what it takes to care for patients eager to return to play, and believe in individualized care and being accessible to my patients throughout their recovery process. While the initial goal is for patients to recover from an injury, success is really achieved if the athlete is given the knowledge and tools to prevent further injury in the future. It is refreshing to be involved in the promotion of healthy living and prevent injury in individuals driven to recover allowing them to pursue their goals.
