About Me

I am originally from Raleigh, NC, and played elite-level soccer starting at 10 years old. My love for athletics allowed for me to discover my passion for biomechanics and how the human body functions.

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Exercise & Sport Science with Honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016 and went on to receive my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from a Top 10 Program- the University of Florida in 2019. I then made my way down to Palm Beach County to be with my husband, who is a South Florida native.

For 3 years, I worked in stroke rehabilitation. This setting also included treating the geriatric population, hip fractures, traumatic brain injuries and amputees. In 2022, I felt the pull to return to my long-time favorite setting: orthopedics. This is when Stability In Wellness, LLC was born.

In general, physical therapists with backgrounds in neurologic rehabilitation are far less common than those with traditional orthopedic backgrounds. This is why both my background in neurologic rehab and love of manual therapy give my treatment approach an edge, allowing me to effectively address the connection between mind and body.
