My passion for fitness began in high school, by devouring workout magazines and trying out the exercises on my own in my room. College allowed me to put science behind my natural curiosity of how the body works & I received my master’s in Physical Therapy from Columbia University in 2001. I am an orthopedic and fitness physical therapist- I feel most at home in a gym, on my road bike, or running along NYC’s Hudson River. I’ve seen many surgeries and am fascinated by the body’s process of recovery. A good work day includes a patient fresh out of surgery, a sporty jock who impresses me with their training intensity & a client who is new to exercise but open to the possibilities of moving well and pain-free.
