I am a board certified and licensed physical therapist in the state of Florida. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Exercise Science at the University of Tampa in 2014 and my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in 2017. I have 3 years pediatric physical therapy experience in the clinic-based and home-based settings with children from age 0-18. I also specialize in pediatric pelvic health.
Ever since I was younger, I always had a passion for pediatrics. Whether I was babysitting my cousins over the summer or volunteering to help kids in need, I could never get enough time with them. I grew up in New Jersey and my love for the medical field and warm weather brought me to Florida for my college education. It wasn't long after, that my parents fell in love with Florida living and moved as well. I met my true love at the University of Tampa in 2011 and we are now married for over 2 years. We started our little family with two dogs, Benson and Rini, and they keep us very busy. My family has always supported my ambitions and encouraged me to start Developing Strides Therapy. In my free time, I enjoy working out, going to the beach, and seeking out life's new adventures.
