My Story

I believe in the power of movement to soothe the body and mind. This is what led me to becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant. After spending 20 years as a High School Math Teacher, I craved a way to educate others on ways to improve their quality of life through movement. My experiences as a teacher, yogi, jogger and lover of the outdoors taught me that when we feel comfortable, safe and confident in our own bodies, our interactions within the world are improved. As a PTA at Eyas Landing, I hope I can help others to build improved motor control, movement patterns, balance and coordination that will improve their ability to interact with their world with greater ease.

My Professional Goals

My goal is to continue learning to ensure the best possible outcomes with improved motor planning, balance and coordination through play and fun physical activities with all children. I will continue to pursue additional training, workshops and certifications to accomplish this goal.

My Eyas Landing

I am excited to be part of the multidisciplinary Eyas Landing team to serve children and their families. I have seen the smiles and care given by staff while at Eyas Landing and know that the impact is profound.
