My research interests lie in two areas, physical therapy clinical education and hippotherapy/therapeutic use of equine movement. With the globalization of society and changes to healthcare, cultural awareness, inter-professional collaboration, and service learning are key concepts to holistic healthcare. I am involved in the exploration of various models of clinical education to provide learning experiences with high impact. My hippotherapy research has been primarily case studies, but I plan to investigate dosage in the pediatric population.
