My doctoral education has given me the opportunity and privilege of working and interning in a variety of settings from sports medicine with younger athletes to administering fall preventing training to older deconditioned adults and just about everything in between. I have worked in large hospital outpatient settings and smaller rural settings that treat all conditions and ages together. Although my experience has given me a broad spectrum of opportunities, my passion lies in treating orthopedic conditions and injuries in all populations.
