Throughout my career, I have treated patients in a wide variety of settings. I have worked in an acute rehabilitation facility, a sports medicine practice, a specialized hand clinic, several hospitals and multiple home care agencies.

I have provided instruction and training to students during their clinical rotations. In the hospital setting, I have provided supervision to physical therapy assistants and physical therapy aides adhering to the guidelines of the American Physical Therapy Association. While treating patients with complex diagnosis, I have worked with a multitude of disciplines and participated in case conferences with doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, psychologists and family members. I have actively been been involved in these multidisciplinary conferences in all settings as in integral part of quality patient care and planning.

Treatment of patients in a home setting requires me to be knowledgeable about medication use and teaching, dietary education and guidance, home safety and modifications, counseling patients and family regarding caregiver needs, providing community resources, facilitating equipment ordering and maintenance, and responsible reporting of any and all abuse. My scope of practice includes patient of all ages, socioeconomic status, cultures and medical complexity in a variety of settings.
