Biography & Interests
My goal is to help children attain their highest functional potential. I strive to care for my patients in the most thorough and empathetic way possible. I think it is important to focus on the child's ability rather than their disability.
My primary clinical interests include cerebral palsy, spasticity/dystonia management, pediatric stroke, neuromuscular disorders and congenital muscular torticollis.
My primary research interests are cerebral palsy and neuromuscular disease.
I am interested in adpated sports and am training to become a National Medical Classifier for USA Paralympics Track & Field. I most recently attended the 2012 National Junior Disability Championships and National Classification Education/Training in July 2012.
