About

My interest as a therapist began in high school when I had to attend therapy following an injury. I have been a therapist for 13 years with 12 of those working at Baptist Health. In 2008, I started working in the outpatient therapy clinic at BHMC-NLR. Working in a hospital based clinic gave me a wide variety of patients and exposure to working in both acute and inpatient rehab along with the outpatient clinic. I moved to the Baptist Health Therapy Center in Bryant 2 years ago. I am experienced in working with a variety of diagnosis including stroke, amputee and other neurological impairments. My area of emphasis is orthopedics including cervical and lumbar spine.

In my spare time, I volunteer at the Bryant Senior Center giving quarterly presentations.
