The decision to devote my career to neurologic physical therapy came when I met my first patient at an internship in 2002 at Spaulding Rehabilitation in Boston. He was a young man in his late 20’s who had been in a car accident leaving him paralyzed from the neck down. Helping him learn the skills he needed to return to his role as a husband and a father, I realized my passion to help people see beyond their disability, and to believe in their potential to achieve more then they thought was possible.
Living out this purpose is what has fueled me for over a decade to give 110% to each patient finding the right balance of intensity, encouragement, compassion, and empathy. The result continues to exceed my expectations as I have the privelege to witness my patients achieve their goals.
