BACKGROUND

How did you get into your field?

I have always loved the medical field and was directed towards physical therapy from the time I was in middle school. I have been around sports my whole life and had a high  appreciation for rehabilitative medicine. 

What is your training background?

I have my Bachelors degree from the University of Cincinnati in Health Promotion and Education. I went down the fitness route and became a personal trainer upon graduating. I interned under Josh Hostetler, who is Anchor’s movement specialist and also interned at Explosion in Fairfield, OH. I have a strong background in martial arts, where I coached and learned for years in areas of Boxing, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. 
I went to the University of Dayton for my doctorate of physical therapy, with a focus in orthopedics and sports medicine. I have been working in outpatient orthopedics for over a year now, treating ailment all across the board from athletes, surgeries, to geriatric populations. 

 

Who influenced your career path (who have you enjoyed learning from, mentor, etc)?

My career path was influenced first by my parents and also my middle school Pathways teacher who led me to see physical therapy was the perfect field for me. Throughout high school I was fortunate to have a sports medicine curriculum all 4 years. I met Josh Hostetler from Breakthrough several years ago and studied movement under him. I ended up doing my independent study in physical therapy school on the methods that Josh trains with. Josh then introduced me to Dr. Sarah Crawford, the owner of Anchor, and she advanced my manual skills and opened my eyes to the breadth of knowledge that she has. This made me want to gain more knowledge of manual therapy and add it to my strong background in movement and personal training.

I love being able to go in every day and help people in my community better their lives and allow them to return to the activities that they hold dear.
