About Me

I have been a practicing physical therapist since 2009 primarily in the inpatient acute rehabilitation setting. In 2012 I started as an adjunct faculty member at Simmons University as a lab assistant and tutorial leader. In 2014 I accepted a role within DPT Clinical Education.

Physical Therapy has given me the opportunity to teach both students and patients as they strive towards their goals. As a member of the clinical education team at Simmons, I truly enjoy the process of working with all stakeholders to mentor and guide students as they transition from academia to the clinic.

Outside of Simmons you can find me in the mountains or enjoying the beach with my husband and two girls.
