I earned my physical therapy degree from Boston University in 1993 and worked in a variety of outpatient orthopedic clinics in the Portland-Vancouver and Willamette Valley areas before joining The Portland Clinic in 2012. My experience includes several years treating people with chronic spine conditions and helping athletes at all levels, from amateur to professional. I also treat work-related injuries. Regardless of the issues that bring patients here, I enjoy helping to return them to their prior level of function.
Growing up in
Sunnyvale, Calif., and spending summer vacations at Lake Tahoe, I enjoyed all
types of outdoor recreation, and still do. Whether on the pitch as a soccer
referee or on the links practicing my golf swing, I stay active, and I encourage
my patients to do the same.
