Philosophy: The patient always comes first: listen and set clear, honest expectations to provide optimal patient care.

Bio: I ruptured my ACL playing soccer in high school. Shortly after surgery, I was provided with a custom functional knee brace and I was back in the game. I researched the field of orthotics and prosthetics and realized it was the perfect combination of patient care, brainstorming and creating. I pursued a degree in mathematical sciences with a minor in secondary education while gathering the prerequisites required to apply to the Newington Certificate Program. I got in and the rest is history. 

My career started at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center where I developed a true passion helping children. I continued to develop my pediatric speciality at Hanger Clinic in New York City and I am excited to join Boston Orthotics and Prosthetics in Stony Brook, New York.
