CAIU Physical Therapist

My primary interest is to advance the overall development of each child that I work with at the CAIU through promoting growth of motor skills. I strongly believe in a team approach including collaboration with families. You know your child best! I support evidence-based practice. This means combining the best available research, clinical expertise, and family values.

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.S. in Physical Therapy, Pennsylvania State University with a M.Ed. in Teaching and Curriculum, and Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions with a D.Sc. in Pediatric Physical Therapy. I have worked as a pediatric physical therapist at the CAIU since 1991. In 2003, I obtained my board certification as a Pediatric Clinical Specialist (PCS). I am also certified in pediatric Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT). I serve on the Board of Directors of the American Physical Therapy Association Section on Pediatrics and regularly attend continuing education conferences to stay current with translating research into physical therapy practice.

As a physical therapist, I provide physical therapy services directly to students. I also provide physical therapy services on behalf of students including observing, consulting, collaborating, attending team meetings, and communicating with parents. I strive to see each student as a unique and individual child and to build upon his or her strengths. I try to learn what motivates each child and to use those motivators to promote full participation in daily routines. Also important is creating ways to integrate practice of desired motor skills into everyday routines so that physical therapy is FUN!
