Biography

After completing the Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in 2008, I began a career working in an outpatient setting treating orthopedics, pediatric, and pelvic floor patients. I received a certification in treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction through theAmerican Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in 2012 and a certification in early intervention treating children birth to three years old through the state of Illinois.I began my teaching duties at Bradley University in 2017 following 16 years of clinical practice. I currently still practice as a physical therapist at OSF St. Mary Medical Center.
