I have always enjoyed working with children but it wasn’t until completing an acute care pediatrics rotation during PT school that I realized pediatric PT was my passion. It was there that I learned I could truly love my job and be excited for work every day. I graduated with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Drexel University after completing my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from James Madison University. I went on to work in a level 1 trauma center where I gained exposure to the pediatric and neonatal ICUs and continued to develop a great interest in our youngest patients. After that my husbands job took us to Stuttgart, Germany where I was lucky enough to work in a German clinic treating both children and adults. We moved to Colorado Springs in 2016 and I knew that I wanted to return to a full pediatric case load. I love giving children the opportunity to move and play in the way they desire, I am very lucky that my job allows me to incorporate play into every treatment session!
