Our Director of Sports Medicine & Fitness on living a healthy and active life
Tell us about your background. What brought you to wellness?
I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy who specializes in manual and hands-on techniques. My background is in sports medicine and orthopedic rehabilitation. It is my passion to facilitate wellness and I believe that physical therapy should be a pillar in everyone’s wellness routine.
What does wellness mean to you?
People achieve wellness when they’re able to balance what they want with what they need — physically, mentally and emotionally.

Ice, a cup of milk (whatever kind you prefer — oat milk is my favorite), half a banana, four almonds, a scoop of protein powder and a bit of honey. Super easy to make to start your day.
In your salad?
Kale, spinach and lean protein, but dried cranberries and croutons are my kryptonite
