About Me

I began as full time faculty at Simmons University in 2018 after over 15 years of adjunct teaching at Boston University and Simmons. My clinical work has been primarily at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) where I started as a Physical Therapist in 2000 and eventually became the Inpatient PT Team Leader. My practice focus areas include the neurological and cardiopulmonary systems. Clinically, my passion lies in performing hypothesis-driven exams and maximizing patient-centered care. I have been active in the PT department mentoring program, as well as the lead mentor for the Boston University PT Neurological Residency Program.

I am privileged to also be a student of Simmons University, pursuing my PhD in Health Professions Education. My research interest is around creating an inclusive classroom where all learners can thrive.

Outside of my time at the university and medical center, I practice yoga, play football, and spend as much time as possible in the woods. I am lucky to share my life with my wife, three spectacular kids, and one brindle pup.
