"I’m constantly in awe to see the resilience and strength in the patients I partner with. I feel fortunate to be part of their journey whether that’s recovery from an injury or realizing the person they were always meant to be. I strive to offer a patient-centered approach in my practice and find it extremely rewarding to partner with patients and their families to develop holistic treatment plans. I cannot imagine doing anything else. "
