I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) by the NSCA and have been training for the last 8 years. In addition, I am aNew York State licensed Physical Therapist,specializing in Orthopedics and sports medicine,and am an APTA-credentialed clinical instructor for physical therapy students. I earned my clinical doctorate in physical therapy (DPT) from NYU after I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Biology from SUNY Purchase. As part of my academic program, I was trained as a mat-based pilates instructor by Power Pilates.
I work with clients to guide, teach and motivate them to meet and exceed their own goals, whether those be weight loss, increasing muscle mass, strength training, sport performance, functional training, or general conditioning.
My clients range all ages, body types, fitness levels and exercise experience, from first-time gym users to experienced triathletes and everyone in between.
In addition to training clients throughout Manhattan, I currently work as a physical therapist at International Center for the Disabled. Prior to that I worked at Hospital for Special Surgery on New York’s Upper East Side, where I worked in theSports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center treating sports-related injuries, The Joint Mobility Center, which specializes in post-operative arthroplasty (joint replacement) patients as well as rheumatological and arthritic conditions. And I have worked in the hospital, bedside in the acute-care inpatient area, with patients immediately after surgery . Outside of the hospital, I have worked with patients in their homes following various orthopedic surgeries and injuries. I am involved inresearch at HSS, working on a study with Hunter DPT students to identify the impact of physical therapy on length of hospital stay. I have given several presentations at HSS on topics including “ACL Reconstruction and Rehabilitation,” “Arthrogenic Muscle Inhibition: From ACL to OA,” and most recently an education seminar open to the public on “Customize a Fitness Plan for You.”
