About Me

I am a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Institute for Physical Therapy Education in the College of Health & Human Services at Widener University. I am a Physical Therapist who is an American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). I teach PT840 Lifestyle and Disability, PT732 Musculoskeletal II, PT805 Electrotherapeutics, PT880 Musculoskeletal III and Grand Rounds. I assist with the pro bono, student-led, interprofessional Chester Community Clinic as a clinical supervisor. I am the faculty liaison for the Pro Bono Network National Honor Society. I want to engage with students to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners while keeping focus on person-centered care. My goal is for students to embrace the mission statement of the Institute for Physical Therapy Education for life! That is, to be clinically competent physical therapists that demonstrate exemplary character and assume the responsibilities of citizenship.
