My clinical interests include:
Pediatric neuromuscular disease, Rett and Rett-like Syndromes, Pediatric Brain injuries from Concussion to severe traumatic brain injuries, Cerebral palsy, Pediatric spasticity management, infant torticollis, and Brachial Plexus Birth Palsies
I strive to better care for my patients and their families by understanding how their condition fits into their lives. I also feel that educating my patients and families is important to empower them in their journey toward improved health and function.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, being a mother, and eating my husband's cooking. I don't really cook but can make a pretty decent pie and scoop a mean bowl of ice cream.
I'm on the National Medical Advisory Committee for Cure SMA, am a coach for Girls on the Run at my daughter's school, a Girl Scout troop leader, and a Sunday School teacher.
I have given talks in a variety of settings, from local groups to Regional and National conferences, on concussion, equipment and bracing in special needs, and spasticity and tone management.
