Doctor of Physical Therapy
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist
Pregnancy & Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist

I received my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from University of Maryland in 2007 and my Doctor of Physical Therapy from Nova Southeastern University in 2011.  I have worked in various outpatient settings in the Baltimore and Montgomery County areas and am passionate about helping patients feel like their very best selves.  As a mom of two, I understand how hard it can be to make self-care a priority. These days, we keep ourselves so busy that it can be hard to make time for our own health.  My mission is to make PT as comfortable and convenient as possible! I strive to make every minute we spend together meaningful to your PT journey.

I am trained in external and internal pelvic floor physical therapy by the American Physical Therapy Association's Academy of Pelvic Health.

Doctor of Physical Therapy

I received my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Gordon College in 2010 and my Doctor of Physical Therapy from Shenandoah University in 2014. I began my career working in outpatient pediatrics and then transitioned to the hospital
setting working on all the pediatric floors, including the neonatal intensive care unit. I have continued my education with courses in neurodevelopmental treatment,
torticollis/plagiocephaly, and gross motor development.

My husband and I moved to Montgomery County in August 2021 with our two young children in order to be closer to family. I love working in the home environment and being able to come alongside families in order to teach them how to foster their child’s gross motor development.

Doctor of Physical Therapy
Certified Pilates Instructor
Selective Functional Movement Assessment I and II 
Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist

As a Physical Therapist and a Pilates Instructor, I bring a unique perspective to rehabilitation and fitness that combines a rich variety of training and years of experience. I have a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology, a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, Pilates Instructor Certification, and a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist. Drawing from this broad skill set, I can tailor an individualized plan to help you achieve your goals.

I am most recently certified as a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist. I combine Pilates principles with Pregnancy and Post Partum corrective exercises to create a safe full-body workout. Each functional movement incorporates breathing techniques and body mechanics to help return the core and pelvic floor muscles to peak function. I enjoy empowering women with pelvic floor issues to regain the ability and confidence to return to the sports and activities they love. If you want to improve your core strength, posture, flexibility, balance, and overall fitness, I have the knowledge and expertise to meet you where you are and create a program to reach your goals.
