I graduated from physical therapy school in 1996, working in northern California for 5 years and exploring the Sierra mountains fishing and hiking. I moved to Alaska with my husband for more adventures in 1999. My specialty is in adult neurologic rehabilitation with experience in both the in-patient and out-patient settings. I further specialized in the realm of wheelchair and seating needs for clients of all ages. Providence has been my professional home since 2004. My husband and I are very active in the community, volunteering with the Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol and with the Alaska Search and Rescue Dogs. I am partners with a very clever English Shepherd dog that helps me find lost individuals in the great, wild Alaska in many settings including wilderness and avalanches.
