I have been with USD in the Department of Physical Therapy since 2008. Prior to my
time here I worked in northern Minnesota in a rural general outpatient setting and
in central Minnesota managing and practicing in a rural rehab department.
I am board certified in geriatric physical therapy and direct our Geriatric Physical
Therapy course as well as contributing to multiple courses where components of aging
are relevant. I direct content related to basic patient/client management and differential
diagnosis in the first year of study and provide an introduction to women's health
content to our second year students. I enjoy being involved in patient simulations
and service-learning opportunities.
The focus of my research is healthy aging. I work with the National Senior Games Association
to screen and analyze the physical function of their athletes (all over age 50). These
athletes and their achievements inspire me every day!
