I am originally from the state of New York and I relocated to Portland, Oregon in 2018 to live in a state that has many outdoor recreational opportunities.
I pursued a career in occupational therapy at Ithaca College in the Finger Lakes of New York State. Shortly into my career as an occupational therapist I became interested in hand therapy, which quickly became my preferred practice setting in the field. I moved to Southern Oregon in late 2020 to pursue this career goal. I enjoy helping patients with upper extremity deficits to achieve their maximum level of functioning so that they can engage in the activities that are most meaningful to them.
I have too many interests to mention here, but my favorite things include international travel, hiking, wildlife encounters, and food. I thrive on adventure and am always looking for new places and things to explore. I plan to travel to all corners of the world and look forward to many future adventures.
