Pediatric Physical Therapist &
As a pediatric physical therapist, I feel privileged to play a role in providing patients with the tools necessary to improve their function and overall quality of life.
My goal is to support both the child and their family along the journey of life. I observe the needs of the child and family and provide a comprehensive approach that targets both physical and emotional development. To do this, I collaborate closely with the whole family to establish and achieve functional goals that are important to the child and the family.
I customize assessments, treatment plans, and developmental programs based upon each patient's unique characteristics and needs. I have refined these skills over the past 6 years at various pediatric settings.
In addition to being a pediatric physical therapist, I am also a mother. I have experienced the joys and the challenges that parenthood presents, and all of the worry and hope along the way. Strong support systems are vital to the overall development of children. Becoming a mother has taught me many things, but primarily the fact that most parents would do anything to ensure the well-being of their children. Each of our children are the most precious gift. Every parent has dreams for their child before they are even born. I want to help fulfill dreams that may seem impossible, especially after receiving a difficult diagnosis, condition, or delay. Small steps of progress lead to wonderful achievements!
My mission is to bring access to quality pediatric physical therapy and wellness services to all. I aim to provide these specialty services to a wider population than I can reach at a physical location. This is where telehealth comes in. I am able to assess and treat your child online in the comfort of your own home.
I decided to branch out into digital services because I needed a lifestyle change. I wanted to be present for my children, while still staying afloat financially (thank you student loan debt)! I explored different options, but nothing clicked. I heard about telehealth and jumped in... I believe this is the future of healthcare delivery. The convenience and accessibility of telehealth has won me over!
I love reading, learning new things, traveling, music, swimming, and spending time with my family, friends, and church. I especially cherish my roles as a wife and mother. Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. I hope to find out more about you and your precious, unique blessing!

Engage, Explore, Embrace
I believe that God created each one of us with differences that are beautiful and intentional. Because we are created in God's own image, we are exactly who God intended us to be. Each of us has a specific plan that God has for our lives. Through develoPT, I strive to embrace each child's strengths while working on their challenges. To do this, I create unique therapy and wellness plans that are tailored to meet each child at their level. Therapy is centered around play and fun activities in order to engage children in a more natural environment. These activities are easily incorporated into daily routines, which is the best way that children can get the repetition they need to progress.
