My Story

Ever since I was young, I’ve been physically active and inspired by physical movement as seen in gymnastics and martial arts. Shortly after, formal training and practice began in my early to mid teens. However, this also led to a cascade of injuries due to improper training as I had wanted to quicken my progress. I experienced a long haul of this cycle of rehabilitation and injury.

When it came time to decipher a field of study for higher education, Physical Therapy climbed its way to center stage.

Prior to completing my training for Physical Therapy, I desired to detail my understanding and application of exercise science which led to my credentials as a National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

After experiencing these areas of expertise from the perspectives of a professional, I realized that there were limitations in the respective skill sets as each targeted certain systems in the body or had a relative general effect on the body.

Even though I had little exposure to Acupuncture in my early years, its ability to chemically adjust the body was a quality that intrigued me. Immediately after completing my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at New York Institute of Technology, I became enrolled and entered the Masters program for Acupuncture at New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Currently, I continue to practice clinical skills in Physical Therapy and Acupuncture but also skills in martial arts and gymnastics as well as keeping a functionally progressive exercise regimen for myself and for others.

I have every intention of using my skill sets to bring out the best in those I work with as I know that all people can be better.
