Growing up in the Hudson Valley of New York State, I was a figure skater while training off the ice intermittently in Pilates, Ballet, Lyrical dance, and Ballroom. A love of science and an injury in my last year of high school prompted me to pursue a degree in Physical Therapy at Russell Sage College in Troy, New York.
While in college, I joined the student-run Dance Ensemble, where I had the opportunity to choreograph multiple pieces for our annual performances. I also continued to coach figure skating to kids ages 8-15.
While in graduate school, I started power lifting, as well as taking Salsa lessons and fell in love with it. In 2019, I moved to North Carolina with my husband. Here I joined a performance Salsa team, Cobo Brothers Dance Company, and continue to cross-train at Trainers Corner Institute. Movement has always been a huge part of my life, and it always will be.

LEARN TO REHAB DANCERS
THIS IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER EVENT!
Unlike other PT courses, this isn’t one big CEU-a-thon.
You won’t be confused by a parade of random speakers trying to teach you how to market to physicians or tell you how their clinical skills are the best in the world. (Let’s face it, that just leaves you with more questions than when you arrived, right?)
We've designed this 2 hour event to be a cohesive JOURNEY.
Every speaker that you’ll listen to has been strategically picked by the team (and placed in a strategic order) because they have MASTERED a specific piece of what it takes to accelerate your career.
We'll be taking you on the END-TO-END journey from:
“Here’s How To Provide Evidence-Based Treatment for Competition Dancers”
“Here’s How to Get Competition Dancers to Choose Your Physical Therapy Practice For Recovery/Injury Prevention”
“Here’s ALL Of The Scaling Exercises And Progressions You’ll Need To Properly Rehab a Competition Dancer”
It’s a process.
Which means, you’ll need to be in EACH session (notebook in hand), so you don’t miss any of the key steps along the path.
