I received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from NYU, and spent my last clinical rotation at IPA Manhattan. I was not only inspired by the therapists as they changed their patients' lives, but when I was injured as a student, I was also impacted by my time as a patient. The therapists at IPA helped me get back to what I love and changed my relationship with chronic pain as well. It was as a patient that I knew I wanted to advance my career as a Functional Manual Therapist. During my time at IPA Manhattan, I not only have expertise specific to athletes, dancers, and performers, but I've continued to enhance my skills working with patients with EDS, chronic pain, and trauma. Due to my own personal journey, I've developed relationships with functional medicine doctors, acupuncturists, dentists, psychologists, and personal trainers, and gained first-hand knowledge of the recovery process.
