Give a recent example of a surprisingly successful outcome you had with one of your patients.
A high school baseball player came to visit me at the clinic this past spring in his baseball uniform after being able to return to playing on his high school team following extensive PT before and after shoulder surgery.

What do you like best about working at MASTR?
What I like best about working for MASTR is the team approach between physical therapy, occupational therapy, and the orthopedic physicians. To be able to discuss cases with my colleagues (both physical and occupational therapist) and get a different point of view when needed. Having quick access to the physicians especially when treating patient post operatively is priceless!

Give an example of how the close relationship between MASTR therapists and OACM doctors positively affected a patient's care.
The relationship I have with the OACM doctors is one of the main reasonsI love my job. It make patient care seamless to work so closely with the OACM doctors. I know what their expectations are, what I need to contact them for. They are all very approachable and quick to respond with any concerns. This allows for the most efficient patient care with the least amount of risks. Patients feel comfortable knowing the high level of communication that goes on to provide the best care. Being able to have access to medical records, operative reports and radiographic studies allows us all to give consistent information and allows our patients feel comfortable that we are all on the same page.

What would you consider your specialty, if any?
I have taken multiple higher level courses on manual therapy treatment, including techniques focusing on both myofascial release and mobilization/manipulation. Much of this training is related to the spine, but I enjoy treating all orthopedic injuries. In addition, I truly enjoy working with the local high school student athletes, as well as recreational athletes. They are always highly motivated to get back to their sports and are a pleasure to have in the clinic.
