Tell us about yourself – your expertise, practice, and area of research.
I am trained and certified in a number of specialized therapeutic areas and have logged more than 1000 hours of continuing education coursework over my professional career. I am one of the few physical therapists in the nation to become a board-certified orthopedic specialist (OCS), and am also a Certified Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT). I recently achieved the title of Women’s Health Clinical Specialist with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). I am an active participant in mentoring and have assisted in teaching for the Institute of Physical Art (Functional Visceral Mobilization Course) and I have traveled to Japan previously where I assisted my husband in teaching Institute of Physical Art courses to Japanese physical therapists.
