As you can see, I am a very lucky woman. I have a beautiful and healthy family that stands by me and supports me through all of my new endeavors and adventures.
I grew up locally, went to the University of Michigan thinking I wanted to be a physician, changed my mind after 4 years of pre-med and moved to Chicago without a plan. It is there that I met my husband, Marc, and settled into a Master’s Program of Physical Therapy at Northwestern University Medical School. I spent several years in Chicago working at an urban hospital and a suburban wellness center. After returning to Michigan in 2004, I began working in an outpatient orthopedic physical therapy clinic. At the same time, I completed my Comprehensive Certification in Stott Pilates and have taught pilates both privately and to my patients for the past 7 years. Additionally, I have developed a Runner’s clinic within my physical therapy practice , which includes video gait analysis, exercise prescription and goal setting.
In 2015, I achieved my own personal goal of becoming an Ironman triathlete and was awarded a Bronze All World Athlete Award for being in the top 10% of women in my age group. I have been a distance runner for 20 years and have completed 10 marathons.
