One of my favorite aspects of hand therapy is using my clinical judgement and expertise to treat multi-trauma/complex injuries that require problem solving to achieve the optimal outcome.

In my spare time my husband and I enjoy camping, traveling, and showing our classic car as well as other events with the PCA.

"As a therapist who has exclusively treated wrist, hand and elbow injuries for 17 years, the key things I have come to realize: The most critical therapy goals are those most important to each individual patient. That goal may be getting back to their favorite hobby, returning to a recreational sport or something as simple as being able to use their hand to feed themselves again. Whatever their goals are should be our goals."
