Professional Statement
My goal is to help people with MS create positive, healthy habits that will enhance their independence and help them stay active. Very often, small lifestyle changes open doors to significant changes in well-being. My areas of focus include helping patients maintain arm function, improve posture and maximize independence with daily activities. I create individualized exercise programs for strengthening, coordination and flexibility, and help patients with adaptive equipment to optimize their functioning. I am also the MS Center’s adventure guide. In this role, I help patients participate in recreational activities despite disabilities. These activities are highly individualized to match each patient’s personal interests, lifestyle and health circumstances.

The Multiple Sclerosis Center Adventure Program is now 1 year old. This past year has been fun, poignant and rewarding, not only for me but for people with MS. Some did things they love for the first time in years, while others felt the exuberance of new challenges. I am very much looking forward to more adventures in 2017.
