    Philosophy of Care

    I have been an athlete all my life and have continued to grow my interests in both sports medicine and injury prevention over the years. During my training, here at Boston Children’s Hospital, I have developed a new interest in diagnostic musculoskeletal and sports ultrasound as well as ultrasound-guided injections and cutting edge procedures, including regenerative medicine. I hope to combine these interests to help care for the whole athlete both before and after they sustain injuries and help to support their goals and improve their performance.

    Experience and Education

    Certifications

    • Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist

    Professional History

    I completed my bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at the University of Massachusetts Commonwealth College in Amherst, where I was a member of the Division I Tennis Team. I then went on to complete my medical degree at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, MA. While in medical school I completed my certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I then went on to complete my Pediatrics residency at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children. After residency, I embarked in my sports medicine training at Boston Children’s Hospital where I completed both a Pediatric Sports Medicine and Sports Ultrasound Fellowship.
